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!

Blair from Atlantic-Pacific is hands down one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers and I think she has such an impeccable sense of style. Whenever I visit her blog, I always find an abundance of outfit inspiration and rarely see a look that I do not love. While browsing for some new outfit ideas yesterday, I happened to discover this beautiful summer outfit where Blair wore a striped off-the-shoulder top with white short overalls by Madewell, tan Chloé espadrille wedges, a cute straw boater and cool Ray-Ban Clubmaster shades. I was so in love with Blair’s French Chic summer ensemble that I decided to recreate her look on a more budget-friendly level. What do you think of my alternative picks? Close enough? Let me know.

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!).

The design is almost identical, but these stylish cateye sunglasses here can be purchased for less than 10% of the real deal. Score!

Budget Look – Cookie Monster Blue

by Irina on March 22, 2016

I’m usually not a big fan of faux fur jackets, but when I saw this cookie-monster blue concoction by n:PHILANTHROPYls (make sure to check out the rest of the collection, it’s amazing!), I was for some reason totally smitten and instantly had a thousand outfit ideas that revolved around this fluffy royal blue beauty of a jacket. One of these ideas was to pair it with a light knit pencil skirt, nude ankle boots and a matching funky handbag, so that’s what this “budget” look is all about. What do you think? Is this outfit a hit or miss?
