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!).

If you’ve fallen in love with the cat-eye sunnies above, but can’t wait for sale season to come, here’s a great alternative I discovered while browsing through Mango. The design is almost identical, but these stylish cateye sunglasses here can be purchased for less than 10% of the real deal. Score!

Real vs. Steal – Chloé Penelope Wedge Sandals

by Roseanne on March 30, 2016

Update: This post has been updated on March 30, 2016. Scroll down to see the new add.

Menswear is ultimately my favorite trend, but the femininity of these Chloé wedges is irresistible. Though they may have a feminine touch, you can wear them in a multitude of ways including menswear aesthetic. The bow tie adds just the right amount of dynamism between it and the design, without distracting from the simplistic beauty of the shoe. This would be a very fashion-worthy splurge if they were in my budget. As I am not able to invest in Chloé wedges, the steal below is a splendid alternative.

Jeffrey Campbell “Nueva” Studded Ankle Wrap Wedges

Steve Madden “ANGUILLA” Wedge Sandals

Steve Madden earns the role of a hero when it comes to imitating designs from very lavish labels, hence Chloé. First off, I have to mention my affinity for these shoes because I simply cannot find a single flaw about them. The wedge height is stellar, and so is every other detail! They are lacking the bow detail, but the buckle makes a wonderful substitute and really adds a casual element. If I have yet to convince you, check them out in a variety of tones such as natural, black, and brown.

Got a little bit of a rocker-girl inside but don’t know how to express it? Try wearing these Balenciaga sandals and you’ll exude just enough edge while maintaining a polished look. Looking for the best way to pull them off? If you have long legs, try a black pencil skirt with a slightly longer hem in back and if you’re petite or curvy, wear some black leggings like Rihanna (below) with an off-the-shoulder knit dress. But the most important accessory is confidence, and to rock these – you gotta show it. While these shoes are amazing, if they don’t fit your budget, scroll down cause the steal we found is a ringer for the original.

Strategia “Alicia” Open Toe Slingbacks

Nope, you’re not seeing double. This pair by Strategia is actually quite a bit less than the Balenciagas above. What’s keeping you from making them yours? These architectural sandals will look artsy and modern with some red nail polish or go mysterious with a darker one. Either way, just let your shoes make the introduction and you can take over from there.

In the last few years, I always felt attracted to these oversized, men’s like Michael Kors-type of watches, but lately I’ve been more and more finding myself flirting with the idea to purchase one of these tiny, feminine, classic women’s watches such as the “Tank Anglaise” by Cartier. It’s such a timeless design and I have no doubt I could still wear it in either 5 or 50 years from now on and still look great. But $33.900? We don’t even need to begin the discussion of possibly purchasing or saving up for it because it’s way, way out of my price league…or universe even.

Juicy Couture “Darby” Watch

However, a few days ago I happened to stumble upon this set of watches by Juicy Couture and the design instantly reminded me of Cartier’s Tank Anglaise timepiece. There are a couple differences, but considering the huge price difference (the JC version cost either $195 (silver) or $250 (gold) compared to the $33.000 for the Cartier watch) I don’t think it’s much of a big deal.

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.
