I think the word is plagiarism...

Ten letters, starts with B.


Topshop do the best, if not most obvious, catwalk copies. I'm not going to lie, I quite enjoy. And that is saying a lot as I LOVE the designer they have takes 'inspiration' from. I think the fact that it is so blatantly copied is what amuses me. Hmm, structured, panelled jackets and skirts with huge floral prints it's not like it a tradtional wardrobe staple.

I seretly adore catwalk knockoffs. It's virtually the olny way I can manage to purchase clothes I covet.

However, much of the time I find the high street retailers knock off the wrong things. It's always the stilettos, never the brogues (maybe that's just Australia though..). I'm impressed Topshop went out on this limb!

Your blog is very lovely, too!!
