So how adorable are these purple/pink gradient cat eye sunnies from Quay Australia? VERY I’d say. And apparently so do a lot of you because these pastel-hued shades kept selling out in a hot minute and were constantly out of stock for weeks. The craze has finally calmed down a little, so if you find these sunglasses as cute as I do and have the shopping budget to opt for the real deal, happy shopping! However, if you’re looking for a quick and cheap sunglass fix to get your face fashionably through summer, check out the $18 sunnies I discovered at Urban Outfitters which look so much alike. The saving potential of $42 is quite convincing here, don’t you agree? What’s your opinion on this sunglass shopping matter: cheap ($60) or cheaper ($18), which one would you pick?

Summer may be officially over, but it’s never too late for a good pair of sunglasses, right? Case in point: these geometric, wire-framed “Love Punch” shades. When I first saw celebrities and style bloggers flaunting these shades, I assumed they were by a big household name like Dior or Prada, but I then learned that these are actually by a South Korean eyewear brand named Gentle Monster which until then hasn’t been on my radar yet. I looked at the rest of their collection and these guys certainly know their stuff when it comes to designing beautiful sunglasses, so splurging on these razor-thin $345 shades might be a substantial but smart investment. However, if you can’t justify this kind of price tag, keep on reading to find a couple of budget-friendly alternatives that won’t break the bank.

Nectar “Villas” Polarized Geometric Sunglasses

Update (06/13/2017): Check out these fab Gentle Monster Love Punch look-alike shades I found at Nectar. They come in 3 colors and retail for $44.99. Nectar offers free shipping on all domestic orders and I love that part of the proceeds go to Bee Cause which helps repopulating honeybee hives across the United States.

SojoS Cat Eye Mirrored Sunglasses

So these sunglasses by SojoS are an absolute dead ringer for the “Love Punch” shades by Gentle Monster except these will cost you $12.99 instead of $345. They come in a variety of different lense and frame colors, so feel free to opt for more than one pair at that price. Don’t expect them to last a lifetime, but if you just want to wear them for a season or two, these are a good alternative.

Aldo “Qilalla” Sunglasses

Another great and possibly more durable Gentle Monster “Love Punch” dupe would have to be these sunglasses by Aldo. They cost slightly more ($16!), but also look sturdier and less fragile than the SojoS sunnies, so if you’re a clumsy person like me and happen to accidentally sit on your sunglasses from time to time, these Aldo shades might be the smarter choice for you.

Chloé sure knows how to fire up a bag lover’s heart. First we had the “Faye“, then came the “Drew” and in 2017 we have the “Nile” which I am pretty certain will be Chloé’s next big It bag if not – THE – It bag of the year. And once again Chloé has turned to its trusted saddle bag shape to combine both novelty and functionality by adding an equestrian-inspired brass bracelet that serves both as a decorative detail and functional top handle, depending on how you carry the bag. The “Nile” comes in three sizes: small (as seen in the picture below, price: $1.550), medium (price: $1.690) and a super cute macro sized minaudière clutch in a half-moon silhouette (price: $1.450). Due to the high demand most of the “Nile” styles and colors are currently either sold out or on backorder, so the “Nile” is pretty hard to come by these days – especially the small sized “Nile” in motty gray, Chloé’s signature taupe neutral color. Luckily, we found a few budget-friendly options if you don’t want to wait until this beauty of a bag comes back in stock or simply can’t afford the designer price tag.

I don’t know exactly when and why, but over the last few years heeled ankle boots have become my personal shoe kryptonite. For some reason, I don’t seem to be able to let a month go by without buying a new pair of ankle boots. I’ll usually go for pairs-with-everything black, but occasionally my “adventurous” side will get the better of me and I’ll opt for a softer, less safe shade like tan, taupe or grey. So when I first saw these beautiful, neutral-colored suede ankle boots by Saint Laurent, I was instantly smitten. They’re casual and cool, complementing and blending effortlessly into any day-to-day outfit. Long story short: Saint Laurent’s “Blake” bootie is pretty much the perfect ankle boot – EVER! But it’s also pretty expensive at $895.

Sole Society “Leo” Suede Ankle Boots

Luckily, we’ve found a dead-on “Blake” dupe for you! Sole Society‘s “Leo” looks just like the Saint Laurent boot with the exception that it costs only a fraction of the real deal. The retail price for the Sole Society version used to be $109.95, but it’s currently on sale for half off! Now that’s what we call a real steal deal, so you better get advantage of this awesome deal while it’s still available! At this price I’d get them in all three colors!

Mango “Alba” Buckle Ankle Boots

Another fitting Saint Laurent alternative would have to be these tan suede ankle boots by Mango which may not be an identical “Blake” dupe, but are still close enough to give you the same laidback designer look. Bonus: these, too, are currently on sale for less than $60! Yay!

I was never a huge fan of jewelry up until a few years ago because I would always feel bothered and constrained in movement when there were earrings dangling from my ears or bracelets clattering on the table. Ever since becoming a fashion blogger however, I have made my peace with the inconveniences of jewelry and even grew very fond of it. My jewelry collection nowadays is not to be scoffed at, but I’m still missing Tiffany & Co. in my jewelry drawers. This bracelet from Tiffany’s “T”-Collection would be a great starter piece for example because it’s both versatile and modern and can be either worn alone or as part of an arm party. Too bad the price tag of $5.200 is killing all my jewelry dreams though.
