It’s a fact, a girl can never have enough handbags, or shoes, or dresses, trousers, and blouses. Case and point, too much is never enough, except maybe when the price tag is the difference. The one on the right is an adorable little satchel, but it’s the kelly green coloring that has me enraptured, possibly because green is my favorite color. To the left, the crossover body bag could become a fixture in my summer ensembles very easily, it’s chic and sort of vintagey. The real difference between these two are the price tags, guess which one costs more and click the images to find out if you’re t

I’ve wanted a regular old, gold men’s style over-sized watch for a while, but now I’m contemplating the merits of trading that in for a rose-gold timepiece. I actually saw a woman on the train with one of these this morning, and as hard as I tried to play it off I couldn’t take my eyes off of her covet-worthy watch. Something about the tinge of pink makes these watches a little bit more flirty, and although I do like the idea of stealing my boyfriend’s watch, these are beauties. Rectangular or circle, the only difference between these two timepieces, besides their shape is a couple dollars and cents.

The Fake Out: Striped Shorts

One of these pieces is a mere $189.00 less than the other


The Fake Out: Striped ShortsThe Fake Out: Striped Shorts

With my hips horizontal striped are a no no, so if I’m planning on wearing striped shorts, they’ll be of the vertical or diagonal variety. Although these shorts kind of remind me of the Osh-Kosh variety, but for grown ups and they’re kind of really growing on me. My best friend’s mother once told us that if you’re around the first time a trend is in style, it’s your duty not to wear it again, but I think I can sneak past my toddler style days with these. From the bolder, thick black stripes on the right to the thinner, almost unnoticeable grey stripes on the right, these pairs of shorts could become one of my favorite summer fixtures. They’re so simple and neutral that they’ll go with just about everything, except probably a nautical horizontal stripes that will only end up creating some warped optical illusion that clothing probably never should.

It’s not enough that everyone is wearing them. The maxi skirt is back with a vengeance this season, and I’m loving these insane blends of color that utilize a nice sample spectrum of the rainbow. The burnt orange, brown and green on the piece on the left is totally hippie chic, a little brown leather belt will suffice in topping it off perfectly. The vibrant palette of the skirt on the right makes me feel all summery inside and out, I want to tie my hair up in a bun and slip into a leotard and pull it on underneath, or weat it with a bikini top and sandals while strolling on the beach. Both of these skirts were practically love at first site, so here’s to a summer full of maxi skirts, the wardrobe piece you’ll want in every color and pattern you see.

Potentially the best accessory of the season, straw fedoras have made their way into every crevice of my life except my own hat collection. Every where I go I either see one in a store window, see someone wearing it on the street or find it in my favorite magazine. Even the CEO at my office wore one today. I’m a hat hoarder that buys a ton of hats that I never actually wear, but I can totally see myself wearing on of these with my curly tresses poking out underneath. One Christmas, eons ago my parents gave me $100 shopping money, to buy my gift, and in an act of sheer ridiculousness I spent it all on one of those ascot caps, I’ve worn it a grand total of three times. Suffice it to say while I covet hats deeply I’ve had to restrict myself to spending a reasonable amount on something I’ll only wear once or twice, one of these Fake Out straw fedoras fits the bill, the other does not.

The Fake Out: Butterfly Brooches

One of these pieces is a mere $1360.00 less than the other


The Fake Out: Butterfly BroochesThe Fake Out: Butterfly Brooches

They definitely have their place in vintage wardrobes, but regardless of the decade brooches are still delicate and lovely. These butterfly brooches kind of give me butterflies, the inlaid stones and the frames mimic the ethereal beauty of one of natures most beautiful insects. The one on the right is positively adorable, the multi-colored stones bring a brightness and vibrancy that are certain to add a little retro excitement. On the other hand, the brooch on the left is delicate but sort of gothic, it’s a definite beauty, with its wire frame and strategically placed stones. I’d like to thread it onto a piece of thick rope and use it as a waist belt.

The only puzzle left to solve is which one costs more. Click the images to find out.

The Fake Out: Serpent Watches

One of these pieces is a mere $565.00 less than the other


The Fake Out: Serpent WatchesThe Fake Out: Serpent Watches

To be honest I’m afraid of snakes in real life, but I think these serpent watches have a certain allure that I can work with (possibly because they don’t possess the slithery tongue and scaly body of the real thing). I love the big green emerald eyes of the one on the left, it’s eerie without being too dramatic and something about the scaling details and the way the face was designed makes it a little bit cute. The piece on the right is more like the real thing, the piercing red eyes remind me of that mind control device Jafar had in Aladdin and the crafted scales mimic the body of a snake to a tee. It’s safe to say that I think they’re both diving, but for surprisingly different reasons to go along with the different price tags.
