Millie Mackintosh never fails to make us envious with her amazing wardrobe, but now she's managed to do it in the accessory department too.

Despite the colder weather and clocks turning back (boo!), the former Made In Chelsea star proved that having a swanky pair of sunnies is still very important.

Millie took to Instagram to show off her latest designer splurge, a pair of seriously luxe Chanel sunglasses. The fashionista shared a selfie while wearing the chic shades, along with the caption "Obsessed with my new winter @chanelofficial sunnies."

Yep, we think we'd be obsessed if we had these babies too!

But these aren't just any old designer sunglasses. Oh no. These black cat-eye frames are actually emebellished with a row of teeny tiny pearls. We're officially in love.

However, no matter how much we adore them, their pricy tag will cause some serious damage to your bank account – they cost a whopping £342.16. Sigh.

Luckily we've found a pretty good solution – just make your own! Pick up these plain black frames from ASOS for a mere fiver, and then grab these craft pearls (£3.47).

Although they're meant to be for your talons, they'll work just as well on the sunglasses. Simply stick 'em along the top of the frame with some super glue to make your own.

Or alternatively, we love these round shaped sunnies from Topshop that are £22. They're gold-hued frame and pearls will amp up the glam factor even further.

Either way, we can definitely steal Millie's look here, even if we don't have the Chelsea bank balance!
