Real vs. Steal – Chloé Myrte Sunglasses

by Irina on October 26, 2012

Update: This post has been updated on October 26, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

I recently noticed that I am pretty ill equipped in terms of sunglasses. In fact, I own exactly ONE (UPDATE: make that 15 now) pair of sunglasses which I bought about 2 years ago on eBay. However, those sunglasses I absolutely adore and treasure. It’s a pair of chocolate brown oversized Miu Miu sunnies which had cost me ca. $120. I haven’t been tempted to buy any new sunglasses ever since, but that might be about to change because I fell in love with Chloé‘s gorgeous “Myrte” sunnies. I really like the shape and the metal inlays add detail! Too bad they retail for $297 which is not a price I’m willing to pay since I’m not that big on sunglasses in the first place.

ASOS Metal Corner Detail Sunglasses

UPDATE (10/26/2012): 2 years later I have come across another pair of ASOS sunglasses that look a lot like Chloé’s Myrte shades.

LC Lauren Conrad Round Sunglasses

UPDATE (10/14/2010): Lauren Conrad’s upscale fashion line may have tanked, but it looks like her line for Kohl’s, LC Lauren Conrad, is going pretty strong. The success might stem from the fact that she takes inspiration from her own fashion basics. Clearly, these sunglasses are spot-on Chloé’s Myrte knockoffs which she owns herself. Want the same style for a whole lot less? Get these sunnies at Kohl’s on sale for $16.99 in black, champagne or tortoise.

ASOS Corner Detail Sunglasses

I happened to browse ASOS for the newest arrivals today and was absolutely delighted to see an almost identical version of the Chloé Myrte sunnies for a much, much lower price. The inlays on the black version are gold instead of gunmetal, but I think I even prefer that. The sunglasses come also in brown tortoisels.

I have always admired Selena Gomez‘ style and till this day she has yet to disappoint. She manages to pull off a simply effortless vibe by showcasing her edgy yet casual look. Although Selena has a tendency to wear an amalgam of brands, she always incorporates a few high-end designer pieces to give her look the finishing luxury touch. On the contrary, I especially love her Steve Madden “TROPADOR” Studded Boots for a rather affordable $189.95. Her AG Adriano Goldschmied Super Skinny Legging Jeans are absolutely beautiful and also on the more affordable spectrum. What do you think of Selena’s wardrobe choices?

I usually don’t pay much attention to Gwyneth Paltrow off the red carpet. While she might look absolutely impeccable when glammed up for an event; I always thought of her off-duty style to be just so-so. Certainly not bad, but not outstandingly great either. Then I saw recent photos of Gwyneth trying to catch a flight in a pair of red Rag & Bone Newbury booties looking casually cool in a jersey longsleeve shirt, skinny jeans, oversized shades and – it’s all about the accessories here – a lustworthy Hermès Collier de Chien bracelet and the first Hedi Slimane for Yves Saint Laurent bag in mink. A winning yet comfy look in my book, so I tried to recreate Gwyneth’s relaxed airport look for less! See below for our budget-friendly Gwyneth look-a-like outfit!
