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.

Real vs. Steal – Dior So Real Sunglasses

by Irina on February 1, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on February 1, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

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 almost get the sensation that I’m looking at a Magic Eye poster when I look at this Givenchy Ottoman Stitch Stripe Jacket. It’s definitely different and very appealing to the eye. I love how Keri Hilson sports it with a pair of black skinnies and a peep-toe boot. Such elegance when it’s worn so simplified. I’m very curious to see how this jacket would look with a pair of jeans as opposed to the all-black ensemble. So, if you want to get the look and not be on the waiting list and spend $1557 on this striking jacket, here are a few more choices!

Update (02/25/2012): If you’re looking for a high quality alternative, look no further because this striped Smythe blazer is a great Givenchy look-a-like. It does retail for a very hefty $486.50, but it’s still less than 50% of the original’s price.

Alice + Olivia “Sage” Striped Blazer

I love this Alice + Olivia “Sage” Striped Blazer! I love the shoulders and the pockets! Very similar to the Givenchy and you won’t be out $1557 either. Priced at $368 this jacket is definitely a steal. But, if it still doesn’t fit your budget we have some more for ya!

Aryn K. Stripe Blazer

This Aryn K. blazer has slightly bigger stripes than the Givenchy and the Alice + Olivia, but I’m really enjoying the collar detail around the neckline on this one. And priced at $94, I’d say it’s pretty budget-friendly!

Tart “Camryn” Jacket

Now this Tart jacket looks the most like the Givenchy with the striping. However, it looks more of “going to the office” than a jacket that you can wear more casually. Nonetheless, if you like the look and you’re really loving the stripes of the Givenchy and want something a little more affordable, I’d go for this one!

525 America Striped Blazer

OK, so I’m not sure how I feel about this jacket by 525 America. I like the buttons, but I feel like it should’ve been a full-length sleeve rather than a 3/4 sleeve. Especially since you have the button style of a pea-coat! It does look cute with jeans and priced at $95.99, it might suit your taste for the warmer weather that’s soon ahead.

I don’t know exactly when and why, but over the last few years heeled ankle boots have become my personal shoe kryptonite. For some reason, I don’t seem to be able to let a month go by without buying a new pair of ankle boots. I’ll usually go for pairs-with-everything black, but occasionally my “adventurous” side will get the better of me and I’ll opt for a softer, less safe shade like tan, taupe or grey. So when I first saw these beautiful, neutral-colored suede ankle boots by Saint Laurent, I was instantly smitten. They’re casual and cool, complementing and blending effortlessly into any day-to-day outfit. Long story short: Saint Laurent’s “Blake” bootie is pretty much the perfect ankle boot – EVER! But it’s also pretty expensive at $895.

Sole Society “Leo” Suede Ankle Boots

Luckily, we’ve found a dead-on “Blake” dupe for you! Sole Society‘s “Leo” looks just like the Saint Laurent boot with the exception that it costs only a fraction of the real deal. The retail price for the Sole Society version used to be $109.95, but it’s currently on sale for half off! Now that’s what we call a real steal deal, so you better get advantage of this awesome deal while it’s still available! At this price I’d get them in all three colors!

Another fitting Saint Laurent alternative would have to be these tan suede ankle boots by Mango which may not be an identical “Blake” dupe, but are still close enough to give you the same laidback designer look. Bonus: these, too, are currently on sale for less than $60! Yay!

Can we please have a moment of OMG!-silence for this AH!-mazing Balmain blazer? Consider me obsessed big time. If there ever existed something such as the perfect blazer, this gold-buttoned double-breasted navy wool-twill blazer which comes with Balmain’s signature razor-sharp silhouette would definitely be one of them. Just take a look at how gorgeous and effortlessly elegant all the beautiful ladies below look in their Balmain-adorned outfit ensembles. Perfection! I’d even be willing to splurge on a classic fashion staple such as this blazer, but its price of $2.385 is just beyond any common sense. My credit card does not approve.

Update (01/24/2017): Also found this navy double breasted blazer at Loft and it instantly reminded me of the Balmain one. It misses a few buttons to qualify as a designer dupe, but if you’re fine with a Balmain “inspired” design, this $128 blazer would be probably a good buy.

Actually, I liked this one so much I ordered it for myself a couple days ago and I’m so happy I did because it’s the best Balmain dupe I’ve found and owned yet! Definitely worth the $79.99 price tag (sale price)! If you like this blazer, you better don’t wait too long as I’m pretty sure this beauty of a blazer will sell out in no time!

Banana Republic Nautical-Style Basketweave Blazer

My personal favorite Balmain look for less alternative is this nautical basketweave blazer I discovered at Banana Republic recently. All the important Balmain details are there: a fitted silhouette, double-breasted front, gold buttons and a beautiful deep navy color. BR’s version has a couple differences such as a different material, but they’re rather minor and overall it’s still a gorgeous and budget-friendly alternative for the pricey Balmain blazer. Especially so if you take advantage of the 50% off sale promotion which is currently running at Banana Republic because it cuts down the price of this blazer down from $169.99 to $84.99 (that’s a saving of $2.300,01 compared to the real deal). Super steal deal alert!

Veronica Beard Seaside Double Breasted Blazer

Now this nautical blazer by Veronica Beard is probably the closest match to the real deal Balmain in terms of overall design, but it does cost almost $600, so it ranks as my current second favorite Balmain dupe. You would save a whopping $1.790 by opting for the Veronica Beard version though, so I still consider this blazer to be a pretty good bargain nonetheless!

Brooks Brothers Wool Double-Breasted Blazer

Another gorgeous blazer and pretty awsome Balmain alternative is this lovely navy blazer by Brooks Brothers. The key details are spot-on Balmain, Brooks Brothers is known for their high-quality tailoring and did I mention this beauty of a blazer is currently on sale for $274 (was $548). Sure, it’s not a steal at that price, but it might be worth the investment because a navy blazer is so versatile.

Not available in navy, but these blazers by J.Crew also reminded me of the Balmain one above because the design and silhouette are so similar. If you’re all about the navy color, check out this other J.Crew blazer which I found at J.Crew Factory for $79 (sale price!).
