The Lion Chain - High Street Dupe!

I'm a fan of the whole sports luxe look, not sure it's a massive fan of me and despite buying numerous floro beanies and owning at least 10 pairs of trainers, it's a style I fear I'm yet to successfully pull off....

So I've decided to put the dungarees and varsity tees to one side and compromise by using the trends key accessories to achieve the look - think bright perspex bags, wedged trainers and chunky jewellery - like THAT lion necklace.

After spotting it around the neck of Sport Luxe queen Rihanna in many of her pap pictures, I knew it wouldn't be long before a replica hit the High Street.

Mango was one of the first brands who were quick on the uptake and begun selling a similar pendant at £17.99. I'd be 'lion' to you (hehe - geddit?!) if I wasn't slightly disgruntled at the price tag. I know this disposable piece is likely to be a one-season-wonder, so did I really want to spend nearly twenty quid?

It didn't take too long for me to be feline better (ba-boom ching!) as accessories mecca Forever 21 come up trumps with a spot-on replica sporting the more satisfactory price ticket of £5.65. 

It's still available to buy in store (although not online unfortunately). 

So there you have it, a cheap & cheerful High Street alternative. I thought it was only right to share my find and let the cat out of the bag... *groans* 

Ok. I'll stop with the jokes now. :)
