Real vs. Steal – Chanel Camellia Flower Jelly Thong Sandals

by Irina on August 13, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on August 13, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

I usually don’t deem flip flops dressy or fashionable, but as so often Chanel once again proves me wrong. How lovely do these PVC thong sandals look? I really like the classic color combo of black and ivory here and also the Camellia flower embellishment – Coco Chanel’s signature flower – which is such a nice way to dress up a pair of plain ole’ flip flops, don’t you agree? And how cute does the CC logo link look? Such a sweet little detail to add! I’m not sure how much these flip flops retailed for, but I think it must’ve been around $550-$600. For a pair of PVC shoes! Yeah. Chanel ain’t for penny pinchers, people!

Nine West “Frizzell” Flower Flip Flops

UPDATE (02/17/2014): The flower on these Nine West flip flops might not look quite as beautiful and delicate as on the Chanel ones, but they’re also only $49 and come in lovely colors such as white, yellow, coral and light blue.

Target Jelly Flower Flip Flops

Obviously, most of us can’t or won’t spend that kind of money on a pair of jelly shoes, but how about $13? Well, that’s more like it, right? Check out these thong sandals by Target which look very similar to Chanel’s Camellia flip flops. Of course, they are missing Chanel’s superb quality (and the cute gold CC-logo), but for $12.99 they’re a fab alternative to the pricey Chanel version.
