Posted by editor On February - 20 - 2009

Hermes is famous for its humongous price tag (10,000 and above), as well as for its quality. So how do you get that classy look of hermes without draining your savings? well here’s couple options for Hermes look-a-like but remember they’re not Hermes replica!

This lovely pink is a stamped croco on leather by Samantha Thavasa, sot about $460.00

What makes it look so Hermes-like? Its front padlock and enclosure is definitely a birkin inspired.
You may also look at some italian shops such as Forzieri.com they sell hermes-look-a-like by Fontanelli as well, please see their bags bellow:

Pink one cost $386.00 cream one cost $489.00 (they’re both stamped ostrich and croco on leather, not real one) Another good place to look at is a European online site called pierotucci.com

this Pierotucci bag cost $353.00

Get The Look For Less – Rolex Datejust

Posted by Smurfette On February - 18 - 2009

You want to look like a million bucks, but you don’t really have a million bucks or you have a million bucks but don’t want to spend that much on something frivolous.

Here is a 1984 Rolex Datejust

The Rolex Datejust is probably one of the most recognizable Rolex watches in the world. So, if your sole purpose of wearing Rolex is just for people to notice it, you should pick this style or other similar style. Otherwise, you’re just someone who spent a lot of money on a watch and you have to tell people about it.

Here is Seiko Women’s Watch #SWZ056

Image from my personal collection

This Seiko obviously costs a lot less than the Rolex and looks a lot like the Rolex. In my opinion, it is better to wear a Rolex looking Seiko than a fake Rolex that will break in a month. I bought my Rolex looking Seiko more than 3 years ago and it still looks good and is working just fine. My husband got one too.

Once we were at a Toyota dealership, looking to buy a car. We were bargaining with the sales manager for the longest time. At one point, the manager said to us, “Look, you are both wearing Rolex, why do you bargain so hard?” 😛
