I really like Karen Walker‘s eyewear line. Sure, a few of the styles might look a little crazycj, but the “Super Duper Strength” sunnies below are absolutely fabulous, don’t you agree? I especially like them in tortoise, but there’s no way I could justify spending a whopping $280 on a pair of sunglasses. Luckily for me (and possibly you as well) I found a couple of great and wallet-friendly alternatives that look just as stylish as the designer original!

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 $200 (and we’re talking sale price here) is unfortunately a little to steep for my budget. Boohoo!

Yay! Also available in burgundy, cream and tortoise.

Let me tell you: if you have a chance to get your hands on a pair of Thierry Lasry sunglasses at a reasonable price, do NOT miss it! I bought a pair very similar to the ones shown below this Spring and they’ve quickly become my absolute favorite to wear during the summer. The quality is superb (very sturdy material, made in France) and they have a very classic, timeless design that will never go out of style. Just take a look at how cool they are on style blogger Chiara Ferragni. So fierce, right? However, retail prices for Thierry Lasry sunglasses are ridiculously high, so I would recommend buying this brand during a sale (I was super lucky and got mine for 50% off!).

MANGO Cat-Eye Sunglasses

If you’ve fallen in love with the cat-eye sunnies above, but can’t wait for sale season to come, here’s a great alternative I discovered while browsing through MANGO. The design is almost identical, but these stylish cateye sunglasses here can be purchased for less than 10% of the real deal. Score!

We haven’t had a sunglass post in a while, so here you go! Have I ever told you that I’m quite fond of cat eyes and tortoise when it comes to sunglasses? So naturally, I’m a little obsessed with these two-tone sunnies by Kate Spade. But since I have already about a gazillion pair of sunglasses at home, there’s absolutely no way I’d spend $165 on yet another pair.

Fantas Eyes “Witch” Cat-Eye Sunglasses

While doing my daily blog research I stumbled upon these lovely cat-eye sunglasses by Fantas Eyes and they instantly reminded me of the Kate Spade pair above. However, these are $22 only and you know what? I think I even like this steal deal more than the real deal. How about you?

What I love about style blogger Rachel from Pink Peonies is that she isn’t afraid of color. And ever since I saw her in these vivid cobalt blue pants I knew I had to recreate her fabulous look on a more accessible budget level. Et voilà! Here’s the result. Do you like it? Is it close enough to Rachel’s outfit?
