Double Mint Double Bubbles and a Tiny Rant
So this is an OOTD from over the weekend but I spent most of the week working from home in sweats so this is much better - trust me!
Before I left for Hawaii, Groopdealz had an awesome sale on bubble necklaces and I could not NOT get one. I mean, I know they are trendy but I still kind of love them and I haven't yet found a replacement for them (except for lace necklaces, of course). Anyway, for $9 each, I swooped up a light pink necklace and a mint one (as shown above). Not a bad price for something I might be sick of in a month or two! :)
As for the pave bracelet, that one is real - well, real as in an actual J. Crew - not real diamonds. However, now that I see so many great knockoffs, I am kind of bummed I spent so much money on mine. I saw GD had one for $25 and StyleLoveLiving has them in now - same price! I feel like I can justify the expensive one because I think this could be a piece that I will wear for a lot longer than a bubble necklace.
So as you can see, I have no issue buying knockoff styles, but I do have an issue with knockoff logo items or things with fake labels - like this..
I'm sorry this just bugs me. I totally get knocking off "styles" but when it comes to logos - no way. If you are buying a logo item, buy the real one or don't buy it all. Please don't fake it! Those logos are there to signify brands or designers who usually produce high quality items and most fakes are really cheaply produced. What irks me the most is a knockoff logo item produced in a material or color that the real designer would NEVER use. Ugh.
I am truly sorry if you are into buying these types of knockoffs and I offended you, but coming from someone who has worked with many designers and has a marketing/branding background this just gets on my nerves. #EndRant
How do you feel about bubble necklaces and other trendy accessories? What are your thoughts on knockoffs?
