Real vs. Steal – Dior So Real Sunglasses

by Irina on August 20, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 20, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

When it comes to setting fashion trends, Dior seems to be on quite a roll at the moment. First, we had the Mise En Dior craze and now we have everybody lusting after their uber-cool “So Real” sunglasses. Karen Walker and Céline, move over! If we could crown one pair of shades the official sunglasses of 2015, it would definitely be Dior’s “So Real” frames. And even though these sunglasses are everything but affordable at $595, virtually every fashion influencer – from bloggers to fashion editors to supermodels to celebs (and let’s not forget about all the countless Instagram sightings) – has been spotted wearing these sunnies. They come in a wide range of great styles, but if I had to pick a “So Real” favorite it would probably be the crystal (clear)/silver version with the blue mirrored lenses (last one pictured below). But no matter how much hype is still to follow on these lovely shades, there’s no way I would lay down almost $600 on a pair of trendy sunglasses that’ll probably be so passé 6 months from now.

Real vs. Steal – Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots

by Vanessa on August 18, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 18, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’m not sure why they call these boots 50/50, when they’re 100% awesome, but I’ll take them! Stuart Weitzman has been a household name in evening shoes for a very long time. Many people don’t know that the collection features far more than glitz and glamour for the feet. There’s everyday booties, bags and wedges to name a few. In my fashionable opinion, each year the shoes get better and better looking, but the amazing comfort stays the same. So it’s no surprise that many of Hollywood’s leading ladies are consistently seen in Stuart Weitzman shoes on and off the red carpet. These below photos are sure to get you less sad about leaving summer behind.

So if you’re looking for a good pair of boots to get through fall and winter without having to spend a fortune, I think these here would be a very smart buy.

Promiscuous “Karin” Boots

Many fashion loving ladies have told me that they have trouble getting slim fitting boots over their athletic calves, often forcing them into ankle boots. While I love the way ankle boots look, diversity is important in a wardrobe. Luckily, these fabulous Karin boots by Promiscuous will solve that problem and get taller boots onto all feet this year!

Flat ankle boots look especially chic and elegant and are perfect for colder weather as a substitute for a pair of heels. While keeping in mind a hint of equestrian style, Ralph Lauren created a simple ankle boot that is yet so impeccably designed. The metal buckles on the side add a modern touch and craft a versatile feel. With that said, these beauties are priced at a not-so-simple budget of $695 and are sold out, too! However, check out the amazing look-a-likes we found below!

Tory Burch “Amarina” Booties

Tory Burch is often noted as the Queen of Comfort when it comes towards designing beautiful shoes. Although I haven’t personally worn these “Amarina” Booties, I highly doubt that they’d be likely to disappoint in the comfort department. Very similar to the ankle boots above, these booties feature a similar equestrian meets edgy style, but come with a much smaller price tag. Though they are still fairly pricey at $395, they’d make a great splurge and could take you through almost all of winter and fall!

And here we have a beautiful and affordable version of the luxe designer booties above priced at only $49.99 (sale price!)! These Unlisted “Beyond Me” Flat Ankle Boots exude edginess and are the perfect casual everyday shoes. The buckle gives it somewhat of a biker boot vibe, but at the same time does not deduct from the equestrian design details. These booties can be paired with virtually anything in your wardrobe: tights, leggings, denim, knit dresses and so on, so get then while they’re still available!

Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

Real vs. Steal – Chanel Classic Flap Bag

by Irina on August 8, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 8, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

I think it goes without saying that owning an authentic Chanel bag is something each and every girl is dreaming of. And while I’ve never been much of a handbag freak, having a real Chanel bag in my closet would be the ultimate accessory and I would pair it with each of my outfits. It’s so wonderfully perfect and classic and suits almost everything.

Ainifeel Quilted Chain Shoulder Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Spotted these amazing, genuine leather Chanel bag look-alikes by Ainifeel today and had to share them with you immediately! Aren’t they just gorgeous? The clasp on these doesn’t have the interlocking CC logo, but otherwise they’re pretty much identical to the real deal Chanel above. And have I mentioned these purses come in 2 sizes (medium or large) and 11 (!) color options? Consider me obsessed! The price of $115 is admittedly a bit of an investment, but the various customer reviews are throughout very positive and judging from the provided customer’s product photos you’ll get a high-quality designer dupe bag worth its price tag. And if you don’t really feel this particular Chanel design, the seller also has a wide selection of other Chanel bag dupes available, you can check them out here (including other bag dupes from other luxury designers such as Chloé, Hermès, Valentino, etc).

Diophy CH-3101 PU Leather Quilted Turn Lock Flap Medium Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Not feeling like spending $100 on a designer dupe bag? Well, how about $25 then? These cute quilted flap bags by Diophy scream Chanel, but are surprisingly affordable (sale price!). Granted, the PU leather doesn’t look too durable especially when you compare it to the Ainifeel version above, but if you’re someone who takes good care of their bags, these might last you a few years and you could buy all three colors and still have $25 from that $100 bill left. Steal deal alert!

Markese 6999 Quilted Chain Flap Bag

Update (08/08/2017): Also discovered these gorgeous genuine leather Chanel dupes by Markese which come in black, red, cognac and white (not pictured). Again, the price for these look-alikes is a little higher due to these bags being genuine leather (also made in Italy, apparently), so you’re probably better off with this option if you want a long-lasting, high-quality Chanel dupe that you can wear for many years to come.

OK, some might be turned off by the white stitching, but make sure to check out the other 6 colors including cream (!), nude and pewter which are my favorites and you’ll see why $130 seems like a reasonable price for such a well-made Chanel look-a-like.

Aldo “Bargen” Quilted Handbag

Until you have enough pocket change for the real deal, you might want to settle for a less pricier version first. This quilted flap bag by Aldo certainly meets the criteria. Now don’t expect the same delicate quality of a real Chanel because there is simply no competition. But if you want an affordable alternative this bag is probably your best bet. It does have silver hardware instead of gold and it doesn’t have the cute CC clasp (which the original 2.55 bag however didn’t have as well by the way), but everything else is quite identical.
