Alexander McQueen x leopard print = I am obsessed²! You might have already read that I’m a huge fan of McQueen and leopard print scarves are one of my few personal soft spots. I don’t really know how many I have accumulated over the last couple of years, but judging by my credit card bill: still not enough. But how could it be my fault when I keep accidentally finding the most beautiful pieces while doing research for this blog? Take this beautiful berry red silk chiffon scarf for example! It would go perfectly with all my winter coats. But my frugalista heart breaks each time I look at the hefty $555 price tag. Somewhen, somewhen…

While browsing the sale section at Warehouse today, I absentmindedly scrolled through the items when suddenly I spotted this super fabulous animal print scarf which totally reminded me of the McQueen one above. It was love at first sight! Especially since the red scarf is currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $19! Hello, sold! And don’t forget the just as gorgeous moss greenls version! I had to have both. Yes, I’m weak. Let’s just not talk about this.

Posting a steal find for an Alexander McQueen item always makes me a little sad because I feel very strongly about the brand and the designer and would like to be able to support it by buying the real deal, however my budget says otherwise. McQueen’s iconic skull print scarves have been around for a while now and it didn’t take long before they became a celebrity staple. And who can blame them really? The scarves, which are now available in a million color combinations, are absolutely fabulous; scary skulls printed on delicate silk? Gotta love the contradiction. What’s not to love though? The price of almost $300, obviously.

GoJane Sheer Skull Print Scarf

UPDATE (11/17/2012): Found another Alexander McQueen skull print scarf look-a-like in black/red at GoJane. This one doesn’t seem quite as valuable (the StyleInch scarves below are made of chiffon while this seems to be a cotton blend), but at $8.10 it might be a great steal to fulfill your skull print accessory needs.

StyleInch Skull Print Chiffon Scarf

While doing my daily browsing on Amazon I discovered that StyleInch have an incredibly similar pair of skull print chiffon scarves which they are selling for $19.99; a fraction of the original’s price. Sure, you can’t expect the same quality, but if you’re looking for inexpensive Alexander McQueen skull print scarf look-a-likes, this is the place to go. And the best part? The scarves are available in an array of different colors like blue, grey, green, pink and many more. I’ve bought these scarves myself in 3 colors and love them! They’re super soft and definitely worth the price! Probably gonna order all the other colors as well.
