Dior‘s “Mise En Dior” Earrings have become quite the new “It“-piece in the fashion world. They are pretty much sold out everywhere, despite their heavy price tag of $290 now around $700 due to the high demand (and we’re talking costume jewelry here). I must say I am still a little undecided whether I love or hate these because while they do look great on the promo pics and on the celebs below, I’ve also seen pictures where they looked rather big and clumpy and made their wearer’s ears look huge and padded. But still, I am slightly leaning towards loving them for some reason. Maybe because they’re Dior.

Jarin K Double Side Earrings

Update (10/11/2014): As you might know, the introductory price of Dior’s Mise En Dior earrings used to be $290, but due to their popularity and high demand Dior raised the price to over $400 this year which I think is absolutely outrageous. If you’re not willing to pay Dior’s new, inflated price (we’re talking costume jewelry after all) yet want to invest in a high-quality dupe that is going to last you a while, you might want to consider these double side earrings by Jarin K. While I think it’s a little shameless to sell someone else’s design for such a high price, I also think this is karma’s retaliation for Dior’s unjust markup.

I’m currently trying to build/extend my jewelry collection which is a rather tough task since I just can’t get my mind used to spending hundreds of dollars on costume jewelry. For example, I really adore this pavé link bracelet by J.Crew, but $125 seems like a lot for a bit of shiny base metal, don’t you agree? That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for something more budget-friendly with a similar design…

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?

I’m quite excited about today’s Real vs. Steal feature. Maybe it’s because it’s not yet another shoe this time or maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for all things nautical and sparkling and Oscar de la Renta (who isn’t, right?). Maybe it’s a combination of all these things. Fact is: I’ve been hugely obsessed with this adorable striped sequin sweater by Oscar de la Renta from the very first moment I spotted it on Net-A-Porter. It was love at first sight! I mean, stripes and sequins, does it ever get better than these two? I highly doubt so. But even though I really, really loooove Oscar de la Renta, dropping almost 2k on a sweater is simply beyond my imagination.

I’ve almost buried my dream of ever coming across another such gorgeous sequin stripe sweater as the Oscar de la Renta one, but today I accidentally stumbled upon this lovely striped sweater style by Ann Taylor and I knew this was the perfect steal for the OdlR real deal above. The colors vary slightly, but the rest of the design is pretty much spot-on. And did I mention this sweater (which is also available in petite sizes by the way) is currently on sale for $39.88 (down from $89.50)? But the best part yet? Ann Taylor is currently having a promotion where customers get an extra 40% off sale items which means this Oscar de la Renta sweater dupe can be yours for a steal deal worthy $23.93! Let that price sink in for a moment. Now can we get a round of applause here, please?

This “Octavia” Tri-Tone Sheath Dress by Stella McCartney has been very popular among the celebrity world. And who can blame them? Incorporating a subtle color-blocking design, the black panels along the side of the dress are slimming and extremely flattering for every body type. This dress was made to accentuate a woman’s curves and figure, and creates an enviable hourglass shape by creating a slimming silhouette effect. As this dress can be a miracle, the price tag definitely shows for that, too! However, we found an amazing alternative that’ll do the same trick for a whole lot less money!

Type Z “Astella” Colorblock Strapless Dress

Update (08/13/2012): Here’s another Octavia dress look-a-like. This dress by Type Z has a few modifications (e.g. it’s shoerter and strapless), but the overall look is almost identical. And did I mention that the dress is currently on sale?

Lipsy x Amy Childs “Laura” Colour Block Dress

If this is not an almost identical look-a-like, then I am not sure what is. The Lipsy “Laura” Colour Block Dress is just as figure flattering as its designer counterpart, and with the same color-blocking effect creates an illusion of an extremely slim figure while still accentuating one’s curves in all the right places. And though I absolutely adore the tri-color version, this dress is also available in all black, which I can imagine to be beautiful but almost deceiving the purpose of the color-blocking effect. You can call this beauty yours for a mere price of £65 (approx. $100)!
