Description: Signature metal studs lend chic edge to this leather hair accessory.
Ok, Valentino: Who doesn’t love a studded headband? I mean I see that studded headband constantly.
The problem I have is its ludicrous price of $245.00.
I’m sorry, but there is no headband worth $245.00. Although, I admit to owning a Chanel headband which probably cost me about that much. But it’s a classic and I think at that time, I deserved it. How long is a studded headband in style? A week? Plus it looks dangerous if anyone were to tap you on the head.
I’m not trying to belabor the point, however, at ETSY, I was able to find this very similar studded headband.
This sells for $12.00 by Lonely Hearts Boutique.
2. Proenza Schouler Pocket Tee
Description: The classic tee, finished with a sporty breast pocket and rendered in soft cotton jersey.
What really gets me other than the fact that it sells for $525.00 is that it also needs to be dry-cleaned. Really?
I found this Tee at Amazon.com:
Derek Heart Juniors Plus-Size One-Pocket V-Neck T-Shirt
This T-shirt goes for a whopping $19.00.
- 53% Cotton/47% Polyester
- Machine Wash
- Slub-cotton tee with single chest pocket and turn-back cuffs
- Banded V-neckline
It also comes in about 7 different colors.
3. Mind Cutout Cork-Wedge Bootie
These gorgeous wedge shoes look like they’re meant for the AARP crowd. Also, if you have unnaturally wide calves, these just might do it for you. Anyway for all of you on Medicare, these might actually be considered as orthopedic. Ask your podiatrist for a prescription. Just kidding….
They sell for $395.00.
Description: Dolce & Gabbana white and multicolor floral-print cotton-silk blend jacquard strapless dress.
I’m not even going to pretend that I know what ‘jacquard’ means, but maybe that’s why this dress is almost $3000.00?

5. Tory Burch – Beach Zip Canvas Tote
I know that Tory Burch is THE DESIGNER now, however. when I go to the beach, I don’t want to need security watching it while I’m out swimming since it costs $195.00.
Totally Ludicrous is this statement on the site about this tote:
DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, A CUSTOMER MAY ORDER NO MORE THAN 3 UNITS OF THIS ITEM EVERY THIRTY DAYS.
That cracks me up. Really? I can only order 3 of this bag? Color me disappointed.
Description: Durable canvas tote featuring a contrasting Tory Burch logo design.
Here’s a tote from Sears.com:
East Coast Co. White Beach Vacation Tote Bag with Small Zipper Pouch
This tote is perfectly suited for the beach
It sells for $8.00 and there is no restriction on how many of these you can buy at a time.
Nylon beach bag has zipper closure / Large outside zipper pocket / Bag measures 20″ wide by 13″ high (not including handles) / Removable zipper pouch is 9″ wide by 7″ high / By: East Coast Co.
So, that’s it for now.
I know that a lot of people feel that everything they have must have that designer logo, which I have never understood.
What do you think of the comparisons?
I really think that the ‘cheaper’ items looked a lot better.
