Tightwad Tuesday: Prada Baroque Round Sunglasses for a Steal

Mon doux, in the left corner we have Prada’s beautiful Baroque Round Sunglasses – the very ones seen donned by Mary-Kate Olsen, Gwen Stefani, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, Zoe Saldana, and Eva Mendes; in the right corner take a gander at GoJane’s Swirl Arm Sunglasses.

While the glamorous GoJane offering lacks the Prada nametag; for a mere $9.50, in comparison to the $290.00 required to take their couture counterpart home, they are le perfect way for the frugal fashionista to add a celebrity touch to her arsenal of accessories – at a price that allows one to scoop up a pair in all three saucy shades (Black / Navy, Tortoise, and White)!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Nordstrom and GoJane for the pictures.

Thank goodness there is a cheaper one out there. I'm not sure I'd still wear them though. Great find!

Wow! GO JANE!

Interesting find. I'm always up for a cheap pair of sunglasses, because they are so hard to keep up with.

Even though the Go Janes are identical, I'm a sucker for designer shades :)

What an AMAZING steal! I've been obsessed with the Prada shades for over a year, but couldn't stomach the $290 price tag. $9 is definitely doable! xo style, she wrote

thrifty- those are SO trendy that there's just no way I wouldn't go that route :)

Kathryn said...

I don't think that shape would look good on me, but I'd definitely go thrifty this week! I'd be too scared of breaking/losing such an expensive pair :)

Angelica Ng said...

Well, isn't that an obvious copy! I dunno...for sunglasses, I tend not to go for something cheap. Gotta protect your eyes, after all!
