Real vs. Steal – Vita Fede Titan Bracelet

If you’re on Instagram and are only remotely interested in fashion, chances are you’re well aware of the Vita Fede jewelry craze that has been going on over the last year. Just take a look around there: no arm party is really complete without one of Vita Fede’s creations dangling from the photographer’s arm. But while I really, really love the spikey Titan bracelets that have become so uber-popular lately and would be over the moon to own one myself, they’re simply not in my price range. Especially since we’re talking $300 for costume jewelry here. Thanks, but I’ll pass, I think.

Good thing is you don’t have to rob a bank to take your arm party to the next level because Forever 21 are now offering a fabulous Vita Fede Titan bracelet dupe for under $10!

Of course, you can’t expect the same quality here, but for one or two seasons this is a good and wallet-friendly alternative if you can’t afford the real deal.

When it comes to costume jewelry, I’m still undecided whether or not it’s worth taking the splurge. While I do love my beloved YSL Arty Ring, I must admit I haven’t gone all out on other custome jewelry yet simply because I prefer to either buy cheap jewelry or invest in classic gold or silver jewelry from the likes of Tiffany & Co. and others. But all the middle-priced stuff in between? Not so sure about that. This beautiful crystal-studded ring by Vita Fede however just might change my mind. I love how subtle and delicate it is, plus being 24k gold plated it’s not terribly expensive at $150. Decisions, decisions. What’s your opinion on that matter? Would you rather splurge or save?

LC Lauren Conrad Chevron Midi Ring

UPDATE (03/23/2015): Stumbled upon this budget-friendly Vita Fede alternative by LC Lauren Conrad. Currently on sale for $10.50!

BaubleBar Ice Peak Pavé Ring

If you can’t make up your mind either or simply don’t want to splurge, here’s a great alternative from BaubleBar that won’t break the bank. The design is very similar to Vita Fede’s V Ring, but the price difference is huge since the BaubleBar version is currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $20.

Express Stackable Pavé Chevron Ring Set

If you like a little bit more variety in your jewelry and want to save even further, then this ring set from Express might be your best choice. Again a similar design, but way cheaper than the real deal. $22.90 for two rings!

My Shopbop Wish List for February 2013

by Irina on February 18, 2013

I can’t believe I skipped my monthly Shopbopcj wish list feature last month! Shame on me! Especially since there are so many fabulous S/S 2013 arriving items each day right now! Can’t wait for spring already! This month’s wish list is slightly unusual for me because I felt extemely drawn towards Shopbop’s basics and accessories this time which is rare for me since I usually opt to include at least 2 or 3 dresses in my wish lists. I just love how versatile and timeless all the items I picked are! What do you think? Do you have any current Shopbop favorites of your own?
