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 $170 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?

Stripes! They are everywhere right now! Well, actually, they’ve always been there because let’s face it, stripes are a classic, timeless staple, but this season monochrome stripes are the hottest trend there is which makes me – a total stripes addict – a very happy shopper. Look at this lovely Kate Spade dress for example! The stripe print is so elegant, nautical-inspired and the silhouette is incredibly feminine and especially flattering for the curvy girls among us. However, the retail price for this beautiful frock is a whopping $448 and even the sale price of $291.20 is still pretty hefty!

BB Dakota “Zamora” Striped Dress

When I first saw the Kate Spade dress above, I immediately thought of this just as lovely frock by BB Dakota which we have already featured in our “Style Battle: The Striped Dress“-post a while back. It’s very similar to the pricey Kate Spade number, but, luckily, is so much more affordable. To be honest, I think I might prefer BB Dakota’s version because it is more waisted, a little shorter and just looks a bit more youthful in general. Also, its’ price is soooo much nicer on the wallet. Only a few selected sizes are still available though, so you better hurry and order quickly if you’re still in need of a cute sundress for summer.

Is there a shoe that’s more festive than a sparkling bow-adorned pink slingback high heel sandal like this one by Kate Spade? It’s such a cute style and would be the perfect heel to wear to a New Year’s Eve party! Too bad these pink beauties cost a whopping $325!

Luckily, I came across this super similar bow heel by Flounce that has all the same characteristics as the Kate Spade sandals and it costs only $44.96. That’s quite the steal, isn’t it?

Real vs. Steal – Gucci Cat Eye Sunglasses

by Irina on April 24, 2012

Update: This post has been updated on April 24, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

Lately, I’ve been craving a pair of cat eye sunglasses like ca-ha-razy and I had very specific expectations about how they should look like. I knew I wanted them in brown tortoise with oversized degradé lenses and the cat eye form shouldn’t be too extreme either. So after checking out the latest sunglass fashion offerings, I’ve decided that this pair of Gucci sunnies was the most perfect pair of sunglasses I have ever seen in my life! Well, perfect in every way except for one thing, of course. The price. $270? Whoa, big bummer here!

Alloy “Ivy” Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Update (04/24/2012): Came across another budget-friendly steal alternative which is available at Alloy. Not too thrilled about the rhinestones, but luckily they’re barely noticeable.

Kate Spade “Shawna” Cat Eye Sunglasses

If you’re looking for a great pair of sunnies in the style of the Gucci version above, but don’t want to spend more than $150+, how about these lovely shades by Kate Spade instead? They’re very similar to the Gucci sunglasses, but cost only $123.75.

Sunglass Warehouse SW Cat Eye Style #1363

I know these cat eye sunnies by Sunglass Warehouse are no perfect match, but they’ll give you the same look as all the key elements are there (Cat Eye? Check! Tortoise? Check. Brown Gradient Lenses? Check!). Only these cost less than 10% than their big original Gucci sister. Can’t argue that price! Available in 4 colors.
