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!

This beautiful crystal-studded high heel sandal by Sergio Rossi is what I call a perfect “Cinderella shoe“. It’s a total showstopper and will give any bland outfit (e.g. an elegant but slightly boring LBD) the right amount of bling and sass. If you’re just as much in love as I am and have the needed pocket change of $1.660, then go ahead and buy your Cinderella dream shoe. However, if you’re a fashionista on a budget with a broke Prince Charming, then read on to find some budget-friendly alternatives. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Blue by Betsey Johnson “Carat” Embellished Dress Sandals

These Blue by Betsey Johnson heels might not be quite as delicate as the real deal above, but they are still very beautiful and very similar to the Sergio Rossi sandals. Plus, they’re 90% cheaper than the pricey designer original. Available in champagne, blue, coral and pink satin.

2 Lips Too “Too Amaze” Embellished Caged Sandals

Alright, these 2 Lips Too heels aren’t the best (or prettiest, for that matter) dupe we’ve ever had on this blog, but they have the same crystal spider web design, so I wanted to include them here.

If you’re on Instagram and are only remotely interested in fashion, chances are you’re well aware of the Vita Fede jewelry craze that has been going on over the last year. Just take a look around there: no arm party is really complete without one of Vita Fede’s creations dangling from the photographer’s arm. But while I really, really love the spikey Titan bracelets that have become so uber-popular lately and would be over the moon to own one myself, they’re simply not in my price range. Especially since we’re talking $300 for costume jewelry here. Thanks, but I’ll pass, I think.

Of course, you can’t expect the same quality here, but for one or two seasons this is a good and wallet-friendly alternative if you can’t afford the real deal.

Happy shopping!

For many years, I’ve been anti-flats, especially the closed ones. I can’t really recall why I disliked them so much, I guess they just never really spoke to me. However, now that I’ve been dipping my toes in the fashion world for a few years, I grew to like flats. As long as they look so cute like this one from Carven. Isn’t it adorable? I love the slingback bow, it’s such a cute detail. Would I spend $540 on a pair of cute flats though? Well, that’s a complete different story.
