The Revolting World of Fashion Rip-Off’s.


Well, it’s safe to say that my lovely work folk have had to put up with a lot from me this week, especially my sheer anger and frustration of brands ripping off other brands and designers. It’s actually SHAMELESS and without naming and shaming *ahem*COUGH TOPSHOP COUGH* or going too deep into particular products it’s quite frankly revolting and has actually made me red with fury.

However, that aside, I will share with you the Chloe AW08 rip off that Office are currently ‘promoting’. I actually don’t know how brands get away with it, hopefully they won’t for much longer! Fair enough, take “inspiration” from brands and catwalk, but hell, don’t just copy like for like! That’s not cool.

Kate Bosworth never had these beauts off last Autumn!

These are the Office ‘fakes’. The literal only difference is the stud colouring, which in the fake pair is silver not gold. I’d prefer gold anyway. Damn me and my expensive taste!

So what do you think of the whole designer/brand fakes scenario? Good, bad or plain ugly?

Topshop AMELIE Boots Vs Gucci BABOUSHKA Boots.


picture-35

My two favourites:) Amelie Topshop Boots and my Classic 2.55 Chanel Bag.

I wanted these Amelie boots for soooooooo long! I finally managed to get a pair that were on the last chance to buy section – size 3! Could not believe my luck! FATE. Absolute fate!

Anyway, I saw a graphic from last year Gucci Baboushka Campaign and saw a verrrrry similar pair of my Amelie ankle boots…

Gucci Baboushka Ankle Boots: RRP around: £980.00.

Topshop Amelie Boots, £75.00.

Obviously I’m going to be a little bit biased here, but I have to say, I think my boots are much much nicer than the original Gucci ones. The studs are way more subtle and sophisticated…

What do you think in the Topshop V’s Gucci war here?
