Tightwad Tuesday: Alexander Wang Zoro Angular Acetate Sunglasses for a Steal

Kitty cats, to the left you will find Alexander Wang’s wondrous Zoro Angular Acetate Sunglasses – the very same ones adored by the irresistible Ms. Lady Gaga; to the right take a peek at GoJane’s fabulous Futuristic Cat Eye Sunglasses.

Though the GoJane’s sport gold metallic accents in the corners, as opposed to the silver of the Wang’s, and feature a gradient lens instead of blackest black a la Zoro; for just $4.80, in comparison to the $325.00 price tag of the Wang’s, they are a sublime way of achieving star style on a shoestring budget!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Net-A-Porter and GoJane for the pictures.

Rachel said...

I think that's one of the biggest price differences I've seen featured on your blog! :o

Joanne said...

The GoJane shades are less severe in their angles, which would work better for me. I'll pick the GoJane's :)

Leia said...

The GoJanes would be a great way to try out this wacky trend without breaking the bank!

Designer's Wifey said...

Wow I love cheap sunglasses! GooJane!=)

Yvonne said...

Catwoman eyes are tempting... but not on me, for the moment.

I usually always end up turning my dress around when I say this... so just wait and see!

The Favour Shoppe said...

those are super cute!

Style with Benefits said...

For trendy glasses such as the Wangs, I'd def. just get the GoJane pair. I've always envied how people look so fab wearing these glasses, but I can't pull off the Cat Eye look. Le sigh. Great post per usual! :)

xx, becs

Maddy said...

These are soo spunky!! I love them! I think the Go Jane is just fabulous! You're so good at finding steals :)

Dancing Branflake said...

I love them but my face could not pull them off. Cute cute though! I'm all about $10 ones at Nordy's BP.

Tights Lover said...

I love the style of these! With that price, I'm going for the GoJane's!

Paislea Elyse said...

Liz said...

I always worry about funky sunglasses looking funny on me, or not having as many opportunities to wear more original ones. So, for $4.80 I think I can take the risk of trying a funky pair...even if I don't wear them every day, who can go wrong with that price!

briannelee said...

Def the cheaper version!!!!

Laura Trevey said...

Oh my! These are awesome!!!

ellie said...

These are funny, I wouldn't dare get the expensive kind.

Oh, I'm glad you like button. Yes, I thought it had to be Blair W. if I were going to do this.

Thank you for all that you do.

ediot said...

these are fun. and very similar- thanks for sharing.
i think i'll stay with my wayfarer copies though ;)
hope you're having a good tuesday dear

The Blonde Duck said...

Cheap. I break so many glasses!

Josie said...

Definitely the bargain pair. I have a serious tendency to snap sunglasses into pieces just after buying them!

Fun shades! I don't think they would compliment my face shape very well but they sure are cool!

Tierney said...

I love buying fancy pants things for cheap.

I also might love these glasses--with some red lipstick and a va-voom dress, I would be hot hot hot. Haha.

I adore the Wang glasses, but when would they be appropriate to wear! Dilemmaa x

TT's Attic said...

Loove the glasses! Just got some new ones for my boutique - check it out!

Emily said...

You say Lady Gaga? I say Super-Vilainess. Either way I absolutely love these. I like that the less expensive one is the one that's more wearable on a day to day basis.. taking some of the edge and funneling it into "surprisingly appropriate yet edgy". As always, great find :)

Really? $4.80 for the GoJane Sunglasses? Sweet! I'd go for them undoubtedly. Hope you had a really good Monday so far.

E said...

Those look just like the original! I love 'em!

Jamie said...

While these ARE super fun, I am gonna have to say tight wad. I lose sunglasses ALL the time. It's like a disease. The losing your sunglasses disease. I would be nothing short of devastated if I lost a pair of Wang's. So much so that I'd probably only wear them around the house!

ryan said...

I can't tell the difference on these, so of course I am going to go with the less expensive pair!

Although I just want to stick Alexander Wang in my pocket, I have to go with the bargain sunglasses. The style is very cute!

This isn't a type I'd normally buy, so if I wanted to try the style out, I'd defenitely go with the cheaper version.
