Real vs. Steal – Dior So Real Sunglasses

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.

We’ve discussed the fabulousness of Céline bags various times on this blog already, but did you know that the French design house makes some pretty great eyewear, too? Take their “Audrey” sunglasses for example. I love the simple yet chic design of these super black oversized sunnies, but the price tag of more than $270 (and we’re talking sale price here) is unfortunately a little to steep for my budget. Boohoo!

Dior‘s “Mise En Dior” Earrings have become quite the new “It“-piece in the fashion world. They are pretty much sold out everywhere, despite their heavy price tag of $290 now around $700 due to the high demand (and we’re talking costume jewelry here). I must say I am still a little undecided whether I love or hate these because while they do look great on the promo pics and on the celebs below, I’ve also seen pictures where they looked rather big and clumpy and made their wearer’s ears look huge and padded. But still, I am slightly leaning towards loving them for some reason. Maybe because they’re Dior.

Jarin K Double Side Earrings

Update (10/11/2014): As you might know, the introductory price of Dior’s Mise En Dior earrings used to be $290, but due to their popularity and high demand Dior raised the price to over $400 this year which I think is absolutely outrageous. If you’re not willing to pay Dior’s new, inflated price (we’re talking costume jewelry after all) yet want to invest in a high-quality dupe that is going to last you a while, you might want to consider these double side earrings by Jarin K. While I think it’s a little shameless to sell someone else’s design for such a high price, I also think this is karma’s retaliation for Dior’s unjust markup.

I usually don’t deem flip flops dressy or fashionable, but as so often Chanel once again proves me wrong. How lovely do these PVC thong sandals look? I really like the classic color combo of black and ivory here and also the Camellia flower embellishment – Coco Chanel’s signature flower – which is such a nice way to dress up a pair of plain ole’ flip flops, don’t you agree? And how cute does the CC logo link look? Such a sweet little detail to add! I’m not sure how much these flip flops retail for, but I think it’s something around $550-$600. For a pair of PVC shoes! Yeah. Chanel ain’t for penny pinchers, people!

Nine West “Frizzell” Flower Flip Flops

Update (02/17/2014): The flower on these Nine West flip flops might not look quite as beautiful and delicate as on the Chanel ones, but they’re also only $49 and come in lovely colors such as white, yellow, coral and light blue.

Target Jelly Flower Flip Flops

Obviously, most of us can’t or won’t spend that kind of money on a pair of jelly shoes, but how about $13? Well, that’s more like it, right? Check out these thong sandals by Target which look very similar to Chanel’s Camellia flip flops. Of course, they are missing Chanel’s superb quality (and the cute gold CC-logo), but for $12.99 they’re a fab alternative to the pricey Chanel version.

I’m currently trying to build/extend my jewelry collection which is a rather tough task since I just can’t get my mind used to spending hundreds of dollars on costume jewelry. For example, I really adore this pavé link bracelet by J.Crew, but $125 seems like a lot for a bit of shiny base metal, don’t you agree? That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for something more budget-friendly with a similar design…

bebe Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet

… And I made a great find at bebe. Their Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet isn’t a 100% match because it has only a few pavé’d links but for a 1/4 of the J.Crew price you’ll get the same look without breaking the bank.
