So I’m sure a lot of you will absolutely hate Stella McCartney‘s “Britt” flatforms. Not only because of their polarizing design, but also because Stella McCartney doesn’t use animal originated materials for her line yet still charges a whopping $995 for these faux leather brogues. However, I’m also quite positively sure that just as many will loooove Stella McCartney for the very same reasons. While I personally can’t picture myself rocking these babies, I do somehow see its androgynous appeal to others – viewed through the man repelling lens, of course. But the price though? Still a total turn-off!

Jeffrey Campbell “Berliner” Lace-Up Platform Oxfords

Enter Jeffrey Campbell. Crazy shoe designs have always been a part of the brand’s aesthetical vision, so I wasn’t the least surprised to find this Stella McCartney “Britt” dupe in JC’s repertoire. As usual, Jeffrey Campbell’s prices aren’t the easiest on a middle-class woman’s budget, but the design is spot-on and they’re still more than $800 cheaper than the pricey originals. Make sure to also check out JC’s “Zeppolels“; same design, but with a beautiful baby blue suede upper!

Does this sound familiar? You see something and are really turned off by it first, but then, the more you look at it, the more it grows on you until you become obsessed with it? That happens to me quite often I must admit. In almost every case it’s a shoe which I first hate, then like and finally LOVE! The last time this happened to me was with these lace-up ankle boots by Ann Demeulemeester.

Also available at Forward by Elyse Walker, S|Sense, Farfetchls, Vestiaire Collective & The RealReal.

When I first saw them, I thought they were way too clunky for a woman’s feet. But I couldn’t help but be fascinated by them, so I decided to give them another chance and googled them. Sometimes, in order to be able to see a shoe’s full potential, you have to see it on a person’s feet. That was definitely the case with the Ann Demeulemeester lace-up boots. The moment I saw the models flaunting them in a mini dress, I was irrevocably in LOVE!

Sometimes I think everything Jeffrey Campbell does these days is copying other people’s work. Well, it may be unethical, but at least it allows us budget fashionistas to be fashionable without the hefty price tag. Look at these beautiful, almost identical knockoffs. Pretty amazing, huh? They sure are shamelessly expensive for knockoffs, but even priced at $198 they are about $700 les than the originals, so they can’t be TOO bad, right? All sizes are still available, but you better be fast as these knockoffs won’t stay for too long (they’re also exclusively sold at Free People, so if they are gone there, you won’t find them anywhere else).

Real vs. Steal – Dior So Real Sunglasses

by Irina on August 20, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 20, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.

Real vs. Steal – Chanel Quilted Boy Bag

by Irina on August 6, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 6, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

Oh boy! I think I might have a new favorite Chanel bag! I’ve always thought I would never like a Chanel bag more than their classic flap bag, but seeing the quilted version of the Chanel Boy bag below makes me reconsider. It’s edgier than all the classic Chanel bags and I love its modern twist. It looks fresh and new yet still remains to be quintessentially Chanel. Not sure how much this baggie retails for, but I do know that I’m not able to afford it. Boohoo!

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $975 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.
