The moment I first laid eyes onto these fancy satin bow slide sandals by Puma which came out as part of the new Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection earlier this month, I knew Rihanna would have another hit on her hands for the fashion-forward, sportswear-loving ladies (…and men since these are also available in men’s sizing). The new styles are supposedly inspired by the luxurious Parisian days of the famously known decadent Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the bow slides are a glammed up version of the classic soccer slide with a super cute satin bow adorning the slide strap which come in either a beautiful pastel pink or edgy olive green. The bow slides retail for $90 which is obviously far from being a designer shoe price, but a) these sandals are so in demand right now that they’re almost sold out everywhere and b) not everbody wants to spend almost $100 on a pair of pool slide sandals, so we took a look around to see whether we could find some lower priced alternatives. Spoiler alert: we did!

If you happen to spend some time on Instagram occasionally and follow one or two major fashion accounts, chances are you’re probably already familiar with “Les Bonbons” by Rebecca de Ravenel. These ball drop clip-on statement earrings which are made of lightweight silk, are handmade in India and come in a variety of lengths, materials and colors, have been designed by up-and-coming jewelry designer Rebecca de Ravenel who grew up between the Bahamas and Paris; an influence that is reflected in her aesthetic (check out her fabulous Instagram account) and her colorful designs which are both bold and playful. What Rebecca de Ravenel’s designs are NOT however: cheap! Depending on the design, you’d have to shell out between $295 and $345 for a pair of “Les Bonbons” to call yours! A price not every fashionista would be willing to pay for such a trendy accessory that might be out of fashion by next summer.

Scarves are a great way to accessorize, but not for $395. As much as I adore this Burberry Giant Check Wool Silk Gauze Scarf, it is way beyond my price range. It seems to be a bit light for winter in my area, but perfect for transitional weather. No need to worry about the price because the scarved we found below are practically identical and very affordable as well.

Humble Chic Heritage Scarf

Update (04/19/2016): Spotted these lovely Burberry scarf dupes at Humble Chic today. Love these! Another great alternative would be the just as fab Lightweight London Plaid Scarfpjx which costs around $15, also by Humble Chic and available in various colors.

Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf

Update (10/15/2012): Good news! BagInc has finally restocked the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarves which are now also available in other lovely colors such as red (my personal favorite!). Don’t forget to use our exclusive promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET” to get 10% OFF your entire order!

To be honest, I actually like these scarves more than the Burberry one. I think that the darker pigmentation of the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf looks more expensive, but the best part is that it’s only $12. This would make a lovely accessory for really any outfit, and also a great gift for someone who loves the classic Burberry style.

Alexander McQueen x leopard print = I am obsessed²! You might have already read that I’m a huge fan of McQueen and leopard print scarves are one of my few personal soft spots. I don’t really know how many I have accumulated over the last couple of years, but judging by my credit card bill: still not enough. But how could it be my fault when I keep accidentally finding the most beautiful pieces while doing research for this blog? Take this beautiful berry red silk chiffon scarf for example! It would go perfectly with all my winter coats. But my frugalista heart breaks each time I look at the hefty $555 price tag. Somewhen, somewhen…

Warehouse Two Coloured Animal Print Scarf

While browsing the sale section at Warehouse today, I absentmindedly scrolled through the items when suddenly I spotted this super fabulous animal print scarf which totally reminded me of the McQueen one above. It was love at first sight! Especially since the red scarf is currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $19! Hello, sold! And don’t forget the just as gorgeous moss green version! I had to have both. Yes, I’m weak. Let’s just not talk about this.

Today marks the first day of summer and ergo means it’s time for airy blouses and blossoming prints! This Joie Silk Blouses below combine both of these things in the most beautiful form. I just adore the semi-sheer silky texture of the fabric (100% silk!) and the gorgeous dabs of flowers printed on them! If your budget allows for one of these $248 beauties, I’d totally suggest to invest in one of these summer staples.

Nasty Gal Dark Virtue Blouse

Update (11/23/2013): Stumbled upon this floral print blouse at Nasty Gal today and thought it might be a great alternative to the Joie Devitri shirt above.

Forever 21 Pyramid Studded Floral Print Shirt

If you want a similar style to the Joie Floral Blouse above without breaking the bank, here are two great alternatives from Forever 21 which should do the trick of getting you the Joie look for less. The floral print on these is bigger and bolder and the material is 100% polyester instead of 100% silk, but these are still very beautiful nonetheless and at only $15.80 a pop super affordable, too! Just get both colors and wear them all summer long!
