You might know of my weakness for anything striped, but striped sunglasses? That was new even to me, the stripe freak. I can’t rememeber having seen a pair like these round striped sunnies by House of Holland before. And I must say: I like them! Sure, they’re definitely not for the faint of heart and require a lot of confidence to be worn out in public. But if you’re bold and daring enough, I totally think you should rock them. That is, if you have $250 ready and available to spend on them, of course.

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “GET10” to get $10 off your order of $100+ at Chicwish!

So you like the look but don’t have the money to go for the original? No problem. I found this pretty perfect dupe at Chicwish which sells for roughly less than 10% of the original. Yeah, you’re welcome.

Okay, so let’s talk black and white stripes… again. This time I have a style blogger look 4 less for you which is inspired by Blair from the ever so gorgeous blog Atlantic-Pacific. Seriously, I’m in love with this girl! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, she also seems to have quite the obsession with monochrome stripes which makes her that much more loveable to me. I can relate, Blair, I can relate! – But anyway, how do you like my Blair inspired stripey b&w outfit?

We’ve discussed the fabulousness of Céline bags various times on this blog already, but did you know that the French design house makes some pretty great eyewear, too? Take their “Audrey” sunglasses for example. I love the simple yet chic design of these super black oversized sunnies, but the price tag of more than $250 (and we’re talking sale price here) is unfortunately a little to steep for my budget. Boohoo!

UPDATE (02/17/2014): Stumbled upon another almost identical Céline Audrey look-a-like! Check out these oversized sunnies by MINKPINK. A little more expensive, but still way cheaper than the real deal.

Triple Optic Oversized Fashion Sunglasses

If you can’t afford or aren’t willing to shell out hundreds of dollars for a pair of sunglasses, then feel free to take a look at these just as fabulous Céline look-a-like sunnies by Triple Optic which are an almost spot-on dupe for the pricey Audrey sunglasses that cost only $10 which is approx. 5% of the designer originals’ sale price. Yay! Also available in burgundy, cream and tortoise.

Another great alternative are these lovely oversized sunnies by FY NE. They are very similar to the Céline Audrey shades without being a blunt knock-off.

So I am usually neither a big fan of chunky military boots nor am I a white shoes person, but the moment I spotted these all white Doc Martens on Solestruck’s Instagram I was OBSESSED! I instantly pictured an outfit with them in my head and had to share it with you. I really can’t get enough of black and white lately, can you? And what do you think of the look or the monochrome standout boots? Yay or nay?

So how chic does Reese Witherspoon look here in her black peplum top which she paired with a skinny jeans, leopard print heels, a black tote and and a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers? I am absolutely in love with her casual yet flawlessly chic outfit, Reese rarely puts a foot wrong when it comes to her style choices. Here’s a look-4-less I created which is similar to Reese’s yet will cost you only a fraction of what she had to pay to achieve it (unless she got all the stuff for free, of course).
