High end vs high street

Recently I was thinking quite a lot about high street brands copying or being inspired by fashion designers. The newest collections in many shops are literal copies of high end designs and many brands don’t even try to pretend they imitated some of the best sellers or even entire collections. While I was walking around local shopping center I’ve spotted some of the most obvious ones. Even though I quite like some of the items I think such a strong ‘inspiration’ by someone else’s ideas isn’t alright. I totally understand not everyone can afford real designer stuff and it’s nice to have something that is trendy and in fashion right now – especially when you’re a fashion junkie;) But on the other hand such ruthless stealing high end designs it’s not really okay. I think there should be a balance between being inspired and trying to incorporate some of the elements into a collection and copying the garment just using cheaper materials.

Take a look below and let me know what do you think:

There’s many many more examples just these ones really caught my eye. I’m really not sure how I feel about it – is it good or is it bad? I know for sure if I had money I would always buy the original designs and support the creators. For now I guess I will have some moral issues whilst debating buying something super trendy and totally copied from other brand 🙂

 

Festival glittery make up

The other day the weather was terrible outside and to cheer myself up a little I decided to recreate my favorite festival look – featuring some glitter and face gems.
Nothing makes you feel more like a fairy than putting some sparkle on your face 🙂

Here’s the quick tutorial of the make up + it lasts VERY long 🙂
(tried and tested 6 times so far ;))

Some pictures of finished look:

If I had money

For the past few days I got sucked into looking at luxury, high end products. Every now and then I get so obsessed with this – checking all the designers websites, fancy Instagram accounts, haute couture outfits and collections etc. And every time I decide that I will start saving money for this one and only designer bag that will last me lifetime and I will sped more than my monthly wages on it 🙂 Do you feel the same sometimes? Daydreaming about all these beautiful and super expensive clothes and accessories, visualizing yourself wearing them.. Ahhh amazing!:)

But anyway I decided to create little post with my dream bags/shoes etc. so enjoy!
And make something similar yourself – it’s great to have goals 😀

70s inspired outfits

Recently I was really inspired by 70s fashion – boho and hippie vibes, floral patterns, frill sleeves, western belts etc. so I filmed a short video showing my take on this trend. Some outfits could be great for festival and I think I might be wearing one or two very soon – I’m going to Poland for an Opener festival which is gonna be super fun! Can’t wait 😀

Take a look at video and maybe you’ll find some inspiration for yourself! xoxo
