Copy Cat.

I love a bargain just as much as the next girl. I actually consider myself quiet the hunter and really do enjoy the thrill of seeking out trend pieces in chain stores and on eBay, even at suitcase rummages and wardrobe clearances, you know what they say "some ones trash is another persons treasures". Most of us are part of the majority that are affected by the trickle down effect of fashion. What the buyers see on the runway and in stores overseas are brought back here to Australia, reproduced and replicated and  sold in stores such as Sports Girl, Just Jeans, Target, Payless Shoes, Witchery, Portmans, Dotti, just to name a few. We all covert and want the latest trends (How ever Australia usually is behind because of the seasons) and most of us appreciate fast Fashion because it's affordable. People are constantly criticising and condemning fast fashion chain stores on  the basis that true fashion takes time and quality, but realistically the people that can afford high end labels are the minority. Why shouldn't everyone be allowed the same opportunity as those who can afford high end labels ? The blogging world worship people like Rumi Neely and Chiara Feragni who constantly mix high end labels with chains store copies to create lust worth styled looks.

During my hunt for on trend items at affordable prices I came across the following ...

1. Asos Banana Crop Vest (here) V.s Prada Spring/Summer 2011 (here)
2. Asos Smudge Flower Print Prom Dress (here) V.S Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 (here)
