Or should I say… Real vs. Steal…
Unfortunately I am living the ‘student life’ and cannot entertain you guys by filming a ‘unboxing video.’ one day, I hope to, but at the moment it just isn’t feasible. I am sure I am not the only one who has seen and dreamt about wearing and/or styling the Chloe bag. I have always had a passion for fashion, thus my being drawn to designer products. I always appreciate the design and the craftsmanship behind it, however because it is not something I can necessarily afford, I do strive to find products of a similar design or that have a similar look to it. I realize that dupes anger some people, saying it is a fake and it is an insult to the designer. This I understand, and is why I tend to gravitate towards look-a-likes, which are brands who have been inspired by the designer and not dupes. They are not trying to pass it off as a “Chloe” or a “Gucci” simply a similar style by their own name, that of course has its unique differences to separate it from the original. If you are a fan of the design and designer I do not find it a bad thing to want to/can find something similar within your desired price range. The way the fashion world works is that things trickle down from the designers to the high street, everything is influenced by something. That is my opinion of the matter, anyways.
Happy shopping babes xoxo
