Our (now very extensive) Real vs. Steal post on Dior’s highly coveted “Mise En Dior” Tribal Earrings is easily one of our most read and searched for blog posts to date. Dior’s Tribal Earrings became so popular and so widely copied by now that I could probably start a designer dupe blog on Mise En Dior earrings alone. After the initial success of Dior‘s double pearl earring collection, they quickly released new colors, styles and variations based on the classic Mise En Dior earrings. One of them being the “Be Dior”, a beautiful double faux pearl earring with a gold tulip cap in either matte black or white. The minute I saw them, I was in love! But as you might have heard, Dior raised Mise En Dior prices from approx. $300 to whopping $700 after they noticed the huge success of their earrings. And as much as I love Dior, $700 for faux pearls and gold-plated brass? I don’t think so.

Jarin K Double Sided Pearl Lotus Earrings

Update (03/23/2017): Stumbled upon another spot-on Dior earring dupe today! This one is by Jarin K, comes in either black or white and is currently on sale for $140.

Jardin Double Pearl Lotus Earrings

So imagine my delight when I recently discovered these lovely Be Dior dupe earrings by Jardin. I made my order the minute I saw that steeply discounted price: only $14 (down from $69)! I actually even prefer Jardin’s shinier version as I think they look more feminine this way. Too bad I haven’t seen that these were available in both ivory and black prior to making my order, so I only managed to bag the black version, but I want the ivory one so badly as well! First world problems, huh? If you like what you see here, better snap them up quickly, I don’t think MyHabit is having too many of these in stock anymore and Bluefly is selling those for more than double the price.

DIYBeadsBrooch Double Pearl Tulip Earring Set

I also found another Dior look for less option at Etsy. You can get these Be Dior look-alikes in both black and white for $25 combined. And if you prefer other colors, they offer 10 colors and 13 variations (matte or shiny). The matte green ones are my personal fave!

I only have one word for this choker necklace by Céline: OBSESSED! One of the most amazing statement necklaces I’ve seen in the last few years. I just love the chunky gold chain links with the massive ID tag, they make the necklace look uber-luxurious (and also quite heavy), don’t you agree? And just like every other piece coming from the French design house, this necklace has become quite the “It“-thing to have. I’m not sure how much it costs, but even if one had the funds to splurge on this highly coveted necklace, it’d probably be very hard to come by now that it has become so popular.

Two more weeks until Valentine’s Day and while I’m not particularly excited about V-Day itself (all the single ladies!), I do like any opportunity that allows me to dress up and act all flirty about it. When dressing up, my personal motto is: “Drama, drama, drama!”, that’s why this black off-the-shoulder midi dress by Bardot with its body-con silhouette and the dramatic bell sleeves instantly caught my attention. I immediately started styling this LBD in my head and style-wise it felt like my mind ran in 100 different directions. There are a lot of ways to style this versatile dress and I decided to pick three for you to show: bold, romantic and just plain cute. So if you need some outfit inspiration for your own Valentine’s Day attire, feel free to check out my V-Day look suggestions and let me know whether you like them or not.

Oh Balmain, how I love your sharp-tailored blazers! And apparently Kim Kardashian does just the same as she’s been spotted wearing this gorgeous military-inspired double-breasted leather blazer on at least 12 different outings. And if you follow Kim K.’s style, you’ll know how rare it is to see her wear something as bold as this blazer more than once, so she must be really in love with this particular piece. I so wish I could afford me some Balmain real deal goodness, but at $3.710 this isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

Vakko for INC International Concepts Faux-Leather Blazer

While randomly browsing the big ol’ Internet today, I stumbled upon this chic faux leather blazer by INC International Concepts and it stopped me right in my tracks. Everything about it looked so familiar – the design, the colors, the silhouette – and after about five seconds it dawned on me: Balmain on a budget for sure! The original price for this piece used to be $169.50 which I find to be quite heavy for a *faux* leather blazer, but luckily it got marked down to a little over $100 as of now. So if you’re a passionate Balmain lover and are willing to invest a bit to get the coveted designer look, this is a great alternative.

It’s been ages since we last showed you a “Shoe of the Day” here on this blog and we thought it was time to revive that feature. That’s why today I present to you: “Andrina” by Calvin Klein, a classic yet playful, almost architectural black ankle boot with a gold rounded heel and a gold oversized buckle at the ankle. “Andrina” is an absolute design classic and will get you a ton of mileage due to its timeless elegance while the gold accents and the intricate placing of the heel will avoid looking it is yet another boring black boot and make any outfit with these boots an instant eyecatcher! $245 isn’t a steal, I hear you, but when I originally first saw the boot, I didn’t look at the price tag right away and immediately assumed this had to be a $700+ designer shoe because of the superb craftmanship and all the clever little details. That’s why I was extra pleased to learn that this is a boot that costs less than $250! So if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect black standout boot that’ll still go with all of your outfits, why not take this one into closer consideration?
