Are you familiar with these futuristic-looking sunglasses by Dior? The “So Real” shades have admittedly stolen the thunder from Dior’s “Technologic” sunglasses last year because both models were released around the same time, but now that I actually had the chance to try the “So Real” sunnies on myself, I’m kind of over them because they didn’t suit my face as much as I hoped they would. I did like the architectural concept of the “So Real” however and that’s where the “Technologic” sunglasses come in because they’re like the grown-up and sophisticated sister of the “So Real”, a modern and updated spin on the classic aviator silhouette. But “Made in Italy” or not, there’s no way I’d spend more than $500 on a pair of sunglasses. Sorry, Dior!

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.

I really like Karen Walker‘s eyewear line. Sure, a few of the styles might look a little crazycj, but the “Super Duper Strength” sunnies below are absolutely fabulous, don’t you agree? I especially like them in tortoise, but there’s no way I could justify spending a whopping $280 on a pair of sunglasses. Luckily for me (and possibly you as well) I found a couple of great and wallet-friendly alternatives that look just as stylish as the designer original!

It seems like Aquazzura is currently the blogger brand of the moment. With their lace-up shoe designs they managed to gain quite some momentum among the fashion blogosphere as you can see by how many fabulous personal style bloggers haven been flaunting Aquazzura in the picture below. The “Christy” flats seem to be especially popular (right along the just as coveted “Belgravials” flats which we’ll be featuring in a Real vs. Steal post soon as well). I think it’s the elegant pointed-toe and the delicate lace-up detailing that makes these flats so feminine and lustworthy to so many ladies. And which woman doesn’t long for a break from high heels from time to time? Luckily, we were able to come up with a few fantastic and budget-friendly alternatives, so you don’t have to spend a fortune if you don’t feel like it to achieve the Aquazzura designer look.

There’s something so Audrey Hepburn about these classic quilted ballet flats by Chanel that makes me fall in love with these shoes right away. Now don’t get the wrong idea, I don’t wear ballet flats very often; mostly because I think they make my legs look funny. I do, however, admire all the women who can just slip on a pair of flats and a cigarette pant and instantly oozing effortless chic looking like their own version of Audrey. I’m not sure what the retail price is for these quilted beauties, but they’re Chanel, so how affordable can they be?

Ann Taylor Quilted Leather Ballet Flats

If you’re a Chanel fan on a budget, today might be your lucky day because I happened to discover these amazing, almost spot-on Chanel look-alike quilted leather flats while I was browsing Ann Taylor. For $59.88 (and we’re talking genuine leather here), it’s probably the closest you get to the real deal.
