Stripes. I’m still ridiculously obsessed with them and probably will never grow tired of them. That’s why I probably don’t have to tell you how I feel about this striped silk midi skirt by Tibi. And after seeing this skirt on some of my most favorite fashion bloggers, it made my obsession with it ten times worse. Not that I could give in to the temptation of buying it – that skirt costs a whopping $349 and that’s already the sale price (retail is $698)! But still… if I was rich girl (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na nah)

Stradivarius Striped A-Line Midi Skirt

Update (07/14/2016): Just stumbled upon this striped a-line midi skirt at Stradivarius and thought it’d be a great, budget-friendly alternative to the pricey Tibi skirt above.

Eliza J Pleated Stripe Midi Skirt

Update (03/28/2016): OMG! Now look at this beauty of a skirt by Eliza J! Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love how spot-on it is to the Tibi skirt, especially since the materials look exactly the same even though Tibi’s skirt is 100% silk and this one is 100% polyester. Anyway, the material at least looks just as luxurious as the pricey real deal, so that might be close enough. Also, did I mention this skirt is on sale? But the best part? If you use promo code “JULY” at checkout, you will get 15% off regular-priced and sale items at Lord & Taylor which will lower the price of this skirt down to an affordable $135.15 (retail price is $159, offer valid through July 18th, 2016).

ASOS Midi Prom Skirt in Stripe

Update (01/12/2016): Discovered this awesome striped midi skirt at ASOS a few days ago, ordered it straight away and love it to death! It’s a great and budget-friendly alternative to the pretty Tibi skirt above, don’t you think? Sizes are selling out by the hour, so I wouldn’t wait too long with this one.

Forever 21 Contemporary Sheeny Stripe A-Line Skirt

Update (10/29/2015): Spotted another great Tibi skirt alternative today! The stripes on this a-line skirt by Forever 21 are slightly smaller, but the overall look is still very Tibi and the price is so affordable, too. Available in either ivory/black or wine/black for $27.90.

Topshop Stripe Midi Skirt

Luckily, Topshop caters to the needs of us stripe-lovin’, budget-conscious fashionistas, so they came up with a fantastic Tibi look for less option that will cost you just 1/7 of what the real deal would set you back. It’s not the cheapest skirt in town, I admit, but from what I read in reviews, the quality seems to be good and the fabric to be heavy and crease-free. And who doesn’t love to save time on ironing? Get this beauty while it’s still available, it’s almost sold out at Topshop and Nordstrom will probably follow soon as well.

Choies Striped Midi Skirt

If you love striped skirts, but don’t want to spend $100 on one, then you might want to take a look at this Tibi-inspired midi skirt I discovered at Choies. It looks very similar to the real deal, but costs only $16.90! You shouldn’t expect too much quality-wise, but if you want a cheap fashion fix for your stripes obession, this is probably the best way to go.

Listen up, ladies, we have another Valentino shoe post here and for once it’s not about one from the Rockstud family. After doing like a hundred different Rockstud shoe styles, Valentino finally decided to move on to a softer direction. No studs and no pointy toes anymore, instead followed floral prints and round almond toes. Valentino’s “Bo-y-ch” striped colorblock booties starkly contrast to Valentino’s usual romantic aesthetic. They’re bold and extravagant rather than feminine and pretty and I totally sense a 70s vibe here. It’s a statement boot I would’ve expected from Chloé, but from Valentino? Unusual, admittedly, but I like to be surprised once in a while. Plus, these funky boots totally remind me of those colorful socks probably everyone of us has been gifted in their life at least once by one of their grandmas, aunts or other relatives. Except these cost a hefty $1.375. That would be quite an expensive christmas present!

Choies Striped Colorblock Booties

Update (12/02/2015): Just came across these insanely cute Valentino Bo-y-ch dupes while browsing Choies and immediately wanted to share them with you. Price: $49.99 and they’re also available in a tall boot version.

ASOS “End It On This” Ankle Boots

If you love Valentino’s new funky boots yet can’t afford them, then how about these Valentino Bo-y-ch inspired striped booties I found at ASOS here? They’re obviously not an identical match, but the inspiration is clearly visible I think. And to be totally honest with you, I kind of prefer ASOS’ version because the color selection seems more fitting for Fall and I think the colors here harmonize better than on the real deal Valentinos. What do you prefer? Real or steal deal?

Oh my, it’s been a while, huh? So sorry we’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks, but offline life has kept us very busy. However, we’re almost fully back now and should return to our regular posting schedule next week at the latest. In the meantime, have some fun with these stunners from Monsieur Christian Louboutin. I know I’ve said it like a hundred times before already, but I think I have found THE shoe. As soon as I laid my eyes on Louboutin’s “So Kate” stiletto heels I was captivated, it has the most perfect arch ever, doesn’t it? And while I would probably opt for the classic black patent, this snakeskin stripe print version is so much more fun, don’t you agree? Only problem? The price tag, obviously. $1.095 – that would pay quite a few bills for this girl here!

Lust for Life “Krush” Striped Stiletto Pumps

While we couldn’t find an exact match for the orange version, we managed to dig out these fabulous stiletto pumps by Lust for Life which you might remember have also come up with a stunning pair of Tom Ford OTK boot dupes. As much as I love the real Loubis, the cobalt blue color (one of my absolute faves!) and the much nicer price tag of $129.99 makes this an easy choice for me. What about you? Real or steal, which one do you prefer?
