Sunday Steals: Kenneth Jay Lane Enamel Giraffe Bangle on a Budget

Kitty cats, to the left feast your eyes upon Kenneth Jay Lane’s enticing Enamel Giraffe Bangle; to the right take a gander at Forever 21’s Giraffe Love Bracelet.

Though the Lane lovely proffers more goldtone embellishments than the irresistible Forever 21 gem; for just $7.80, in comparison to the kitschy $115.00 asking price of the Kenneth piece, it is every bit as capable of adding a splash of animalistic wildness to one’s wardrobe – at a price that’s right for everyone!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this sultry Sunday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Macy’s and Forever 21 for the pictures.

I love Forever 21 and TopShop has great jewelry as well. If you wear it right, no one will ever know it's inexpensive.

Shop N' Chomp said...

They are both nice but I think I'd rather save up and get the Kenneth Jay Lane one. ;)

Clare said...

Giraffes are my favorite animal! I would love to hunt down this bracelet from Forever 21

As always, I'd be choosing the cheaper one because I'm cheap! ;) But really, I love F21's jewelry, so I'll definitely have to keep a lookout for it!

Wow- animal print in jewellery. Lovely idea

Rachel said...

When it comes to accessories, I'd rather spend a little money so I know I'm getting something that's a good quality. I do have some accessories from Forever 21, but they always change color. And their rings turn my fingers green, lol. So I would definitely splurge and go for the Kenneth Jay Lane bangle. It looks fabulous!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Omg omg omgzzzz!! I love this bracelet so freaking much. Thanks for reminding me that I need to haul my butt over to F21 this week. Lol. :)

Tayebug said...

Thank you for the comment. I thought those names were adorable too, but no one else seemed to understand! I like the others too.

Those bracelets are darling. I think I'll go for the Forever 21 one, much more my budget lately!!

S.Elisabeth said...

Nice find! I'd definitely go for the cheaper version! Both would be so fun to wear with an LBD for a little bit of spice!

mom & son said...

For the meantime, I will just stick with F21
bracelet. KJL bracelet is too heavy in my pocket.

Have a great day, Darling!

Josie said...

SUCH a fun piece! I'd definitely go the Forever21 route on this one; I prefer to spend a bit less on costume jewelry.

Gotta go with F21 on this one!!! Very cute and similar... tho the coloring on the expensive one is pretty cool :)

Susu Paris Chic said...

Black and white, in all gorgeous forms, really rocks this summer... Chunky jewelry as well. Here in Paris the sun is out big time... at last!

The Blonde Duck said...

I like Forever 21 b/c they look like they're kissing!

Pratishtha Durga said...

I am an accessory freak. Love both of them, though Forever 21 is a cheaper option. have a great week ahead.

nookie said...

I'm for the forever21 one:)

Imogen said...

I definitely think the Forever 21 bracelet is better. The price difference is incredible and theres something about it that just makes me like it better.

Couture Carrie said...

la petite fashionista said...

I LOVE KJL.He actually sells pretty affordable pieces at places like Stein Mart & QVC!

Keith said...

Forever 21 is great. So beautiful and inexpensive.

Leah said...

F21 will be my choice... I wouldn't splurge in anything gold gold. I am more of a silver and platinum girl. Have a great week ahead Erika! xoxo

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

What a cute bracelet! I want the F21 one :)

Happy Monday!

Sara Bentley said...

I'm not much into wearing enamel animals on my wrists -- or at least I haven't in years! -- but if I were these are both really cute and fun picks!

J. said...

This one is tough! But since I'm into white and gold lately, I think I'd spring for the KJL bangle!

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

Gotta say, I think I like the F21 version better! They just keep stepping up their game!

Andhari said...

Forever 21 one. All bangles seem too playful to spend so much on. :)

If I saw that at F21, I would snatch it in a heartbeat! I love adding hints of animal via accessories. And the F21 price makes it possible. FABULOUS post. You are inspirational as always.
