Real vs. Steal – Karen Walker Number One Angular Cat Eye Sunglasses

If it weren’t for the dozens of style blog subscriptions in my feedreader I probably wouldn’t have a clue who Karen Walker is. But since I am very much addicted to personal style blogs I happened to notice a growing amount of fab fellow bloggers who were donning her quirky shades in their daily outfit posts lately. For example, I really like these tortoise brown cat eye sunglasses with the geometric touches – simply superb! But since I’m saving up my money for another pair of designer shades (Be mine, Gucci!), dropping $220 for a quick love affair wouldn’t be the wisest shopping decision.

Triple Optic Modern Thick Cat Eye Sunglasses

That sunglass shop at Amazon, Triple Optic, is a true wonderland I tell you. First I found awesome designer steals versions of the Prada Baroque sunnies and today I happened to come across these perfectly identical (even the cute side arrow on the handles has been copied) Karen Walker look-a-likes for under $10. Now $10 is a budget setback I can handle. You like?
