Why You Should’t Buy Replica Bag

At first, we are all intrigued by fake bags, so intrigued that we’re actually considering buying this type of product. We are tempted by its beautiful appearance and by the idea that we could look more stylish with a designer bag on our arm, even if it is just a replica. The truth is that a fake purse isn’t as great as it may seem. It has numerous downsides and if you make the mistake of buying a knockoff you may end up regretting this decision. Why is that?  Well, I can list you at least 4 reasons.

  1. Replica bags aren’t perfect copies

The first thing replica sellers tell us about fakes is that these are perfect copies of the original purses. This is the biggest lie ever. Maybe for a person who isn’t familiar with the authentic design, a clone may seem pretty genuine looking, but for someone who knows a thing or two about these products the difference is more than obvious. The first important difference is the fabric used for manufacturing the purse. The factories that make imitation bags do not have access to good quality leather or canvas and because of this they use inferior fabrics that, obviously, look very different and have a distinct feel. Authentic designer handbags have a very elegant shine and a delicate feel while replicas are too shiny and have a cheap texture.

  1. Replica bags smell

That’s right, ladies. You can smell a replica from miles away. This isn’t an exaggeration, but rather a normal consequence of the fact that these copies are made from poor materials that need very strong chemicals to shine and have a suppler feel. The Internet is full with complaints from customers who were tempted by the illusion of getting a replica bag at a fraction of the price of the authentic purse. After receiving the knockoff, these ladies were shocked to discover that it was impossible to wear the fake handbag due to the very strong smell.

  1. Poor quality hardware

On a bag, the hardware is very important. Each designer uses a certain type of metal that is unique due to its shine, color, craftsmanship and embossed logos. All metallic parts of a bag are usually stamped with the brand’s name or logo. The problem with replicas is that they have poor quality hardware that fade off in time, start to rust or do not have the correct logos.

  1. It’s all in the details

Of course, the complexity and beauty of a luxury designer bag consists of its intricate details and the gorgeous way that these blend together to create an exquisite fashion accessory. Details like the symmetry of the stitches, the shape of the handles, the authenticity tags, dust bag and the font of the texts make the difference between a replica and the genuine handbag. If one of these very small things is distinct then anyone can tell that your purse is a fake.

The conclusion here is that the perfection and uniqueness of an original bag consists of its flawless craftsmanship, refined materials and delicate feel, and, unfortunately, replicas will always be just some cheap and tacky copies that aren’t worth anyone’s attention and money.

The crop top actually appeared in the 90s and since then it only had one comeback, in the 2013 when people started wearing it everywhere. If you remember how Spice Girls dressed you probably know what the crop top is, a top that is just above the navel. The top may be a bit too much for some and it’s definitely one of those that can be worn after a certain age but if you are under 30 you can definitely pull off this lovely fashion item.

The first glance at this type of top reminds us of those 90s clips with fashion models and you kind of have to be one to wear one because it is very revealing.   However, there are solutions for those who are a bit shyer but would also love to wear one of these, you can definitely opt for something that comes with more material and only shows part of your abdomen. The 2013 catwalks have shown women wearing crop tops with skirts and pants but the most impressive designs have been the once that tried to give this sporty item a more elegant touch. Crop tops that exposed just a fine strap of the abdomen,  those that exposed the lower part of the abdomen or tops that had a transparent material over the abdomen are just a few of the compromises fashion designers had to do to make sure that they make this elegant.

So, no matter what your style is, there’s a crop top for everyone. You can wear them with a trench coat and even with high waist skirt. Make sure that you add a few accessories such as long necklaces that reach the exposed part, this way you will have a chic look. Also, don’t be afraid to use color combinations and make sure that you give your top the entire spotlight it deserves.

3 Reasons Why Replicas Are a Really Bad Choice

No one can deny it. The replica industry is getting stronger and more alluring by the day. And the reason for this is mostly our misinformed believes regarding the quality and utility of a fake watches. Replica merchants tell us that these products are 1:1 copies and we are tempted to believe them. This is very far from the truth. The quality, functionality and the durability of a knockoff is considerably inferior to the ones of the genuine product. In the end, the choice is yours, but I feel that before buying a fake, you should know why replicas are the worst possible choice.

  1. Quality

The actual problem with replicas is that these are made from very poor quality materials and there is no quality control whatsoever. I know that almost all fake stores say that their imitations are perfect clones, but you can’t actually believe that. No couple hundred dollars product will ever match the quality of a $10,000 luxury designer watch that is equipped with an extremely precise automatic mechanism. An authentic timepiece is the result of decades of innovations and it uses only the finest materials available on the market. On the other hand, a replica is a similar looking watch that is made from a light and cheap stainless steel and uses a very fragile and inaccurate self-winding movement. Wearing such a poor quality imitation makes it obvious for all those around you that it is just a fake and that you are pretending to be someone you are not. And this is, honestly, the biggest mistakes of all. No matter the brands on your clothing or accessories, you should always be true with who you are.

  1. Functionality

The main purpose of a watch is to tell correct time. It isn’t just a fashion accessory, but a high precision time keeping device. This is the reason why authentic luxury timepieces are considered a real work of art, because of their complicated and extremely precise automatic mechanisms. Of course, a replica watch will never be as accurate as the original product. The original watches use a very expensive and intricate movement and no matter how much replica manufacturers try to clone its functionality, they will never make one that can match up to these remarkable performances. Fakes have an inferior quality mechanism that can’t keep accurate time or support the stop-watch, date and chronometer functions correctly.

  1. Durability

Replica watches are not meant to last. These usually break after a short period of time. If you get to wear your replica for more than a couple of months then you are really lucky. The low durability of knockoffs is a consequence of their low quality materials and poor mechanisms. Most fakes break after a couple of weeks or arrive defective. The worst part is that it is very difficult to replace or repair the product because replica manufacturers have their warehouses in China and the faulty watch must be returned there. The final costs of returning a knockoff are very high and these make the whole thing seem pointless.

This is why I highly advise you to take a minute and review all the pros and cons of buying a fake watch. Once you do this, you will realize that a replica watch is the worst choice ever.

Alessandra Ambrosio

April 11, 1981 was a celebrated date if we consider the fact that it marks the birth of Alessandra Ambrosio, a famous fashion model that started her career early on. Since the age of 12, she knew exactly what she wanted to do for the rest of her life and so she enrolled in modeling classes. After 3 years, when she was 15 years old, she became a model for Dilson Stein. The thing that launched her modeling career was the fact that she won the Brazil’s Elite Model Look, after that she had a big modeling opportunity when she appeared on the cover of Brazilian Elle magazine. Needless to say that with such big modeling jobs in her portfolio, Alessandra Ambrosio was in great demand.

While she looks great on covers and on the catwalk, it seems that she also likes to be on the small screen; she appeared in quite a few TV shows, including an appearance on the show Entourage. Fans also got to see her along supermodel Tyra Banks as she was a guest twice on the show. A quick glance of this superb fashion model was also available in the hit movie Casino Royale where she had the role of a tennis player.

Aside from being a pleasure to the eyes and a model for young girls everywhere, she also has a spirit for business and her line of swimwear is quickly expanding ever since 2004. With such a great image for a swimsuit line, it is no wonder why so many customers choose it to represent their own style and look amazing on the beach.

While she had many fashion shows, Alessandra is most famous for her work for Victoria’s Secret, a known lingerie brand. She started in 2000 and her work with this known brand still continues today with subsequent shows. During this long history on the catwalk, some outfits stood out in a very interesting way; in 2005 she had an outfit made entirely out of candy.

Being one of the world’s sexiest women is a constant work but Alessandra Ambrosio does it perfectly and no matter if we see her on TV or on the cover of the latest fashion magazine, we can’t help but fall in love with her.

Kate Moss

One of the most popular models in the world and an icon of the 90s is Kate Moss. Her raise to fame started at the age of 14 in an airport where she was just getting back from a vacation in the Bahamas. Here is where the founder of Storm Model Management saw her potential and decided to give her the opportunity of her life which marked the beginning of a rich career in modeling. Her first modeling job was at the age of 15 when she appeared in the popular magazine The Face in a black and white photo shoot. This simply rocketed her towards the top and it would seem that her face was everywhere from small magazines to large panels.

What made her image grow is the fact that she appeared in Calvin Klein ads. When we say she appeared in Calvin Klein ads, we don’t mean that her face was in one or two but that she was the image associated with the brand; lots of commercials for different products and it seemed that the public could not get enough of this young supermodel. Fashion ads did not stop with Calvin Klein although this is the name responsible for her career boost and names such as Dolce & Gabbana, L’Oreal, Versace and more saw their style in Kate Moss and presented it to the public, each in its own unique way.

As any supermodel, Kate had her fair share of the catwalk with clothes from the top fashion designers and she also took a liking in cinema and the extravagant life that comes with it. No matter if we are talking about the small screen or the big one, Kate Moss appeared on it and not just once. It is clear why so many people consider her a fashion icon and it seems that everything she touched turned into gold for the fashion industry.

Kate also showed the world that she can create something by introducing her own line of clothes in 2007. These were designed by the famous model and only available through the Topshop chain. She then, is the total package with incredible looks, sense of fashion that goes beyond anything else and a drive that made her become who she is.

Ray-Ban Sunglasses

Famous all over the world for the quality of their products as well as for the technical and aesthetic innovations they have constantly brought on the market, the American sunglasses manufacturer has recently issued a new line. Impregnated by the pastel colors of the season, Ray-Ban’s Erika sunglasses prove to be particularly compelling. There is nothing like a revived iconic accessory to give the right amount of twist to a classic outfit.

Ray-Ban Sunglasses

Between a Louis Vuitton collection dominated by the sweet marshmallow colors, a Givenchy collection showcasing baby pink tones and an haute couture show by Elie Saab where colors range from tangerine to aqua green, fashion trends are undoubtedly in favor of the pastel side. After an orgy of Post-it colors during the previous seasons, the fashion world has finally decided to abandon the bright flash of the “stabilo” trend in favor of the soft and sweet aura of faded orange tones, light purple and sky blue.

However, if almost all the ready-to-wear collections are now full of pieces honoring this new color-code, fashionistas should be careful not to turn too quickly all their wardrobe to milkshake tones because there is nothing like a  mismatched lagoon green or an awkwardly accessorized orange to end up with a bland look.

The slim gummy textured frames and tinted lenses of the oversized Ray-Ban’s Erika sunglasses will provide a classical outfit with a fresh and chic touch. However, they are not to be combined with a daffodil yellow perfecto, for which a timeless accessory is more recommended. Ideal for spawning discreetly with the sweet pastel shades of the season, Erika should have no trouble upgrading liberty silhouettes, to update the total denim looks, to bring a twist to medium length skirts and to make a little urban touch to the famous Paul Smith pajama style.

Louis Vuitton Paris Fashion Show

Fashion shows are organized works of arts where people can go to see the latest things in fashion and admire their favorite designers. Paris is one of the biggest fashion cities in the world so you can be sure that the recent fashion show in Paris was seen by everyone interested in fashion. There were many elements that made it great and Marc Jacobs managed to end the week in a great way with a Louis Vuitton train that amazed everybody there.

Models present creations by US fashion d

The show made by the famous designer was amazing down to the smallest detail as it was a night to remember with steam coming from the train and gorgeous designs on the black catwalk. There were some common aspects between his fashion show and the image of Willy Wonka but in a much more fashionable way.

Taking our attention towards what actually was happening on the catwalk, there were some beautiful stiff coats that had jeweled buttons and the fashionable dresses that were over the tailored pants. It all looked like it came straight out of a fairy tale and the patent leather with metal rivets set the tone for the Fall/Winter season.

Other fashion items on the catwalk were cashmere dresses in some interesting colors such as mustard or red. Blue and brown were also not far away and Louis Vuitton seems to have done it again.

A noticeable accessory seen at this fashion show were the large hats worn by the models. These were tall and fluffy, colored to match the dress and low enough to almost cover the eyes of the models. The look was certainly completed by this touch and they worked great with the long coats. Another aspect that made these outfits so amazing was the fact that there was a man in a uniform, with white gloves right behind each model carrying their suitcase and this brought a very distinct and classic style to the catwalk.

It is safe to say that every aspect was carefully considered at this Paris fashion show and that Louis Vuitton offered exactly that, a show. A last thing to mention was the dress worn by Marc Jacobs which he wore at the end of the show to take a bow.

Bolero – An Essential Item

It can be really difficult to go outside in the cold after putting on a sleeveless dress or a top.  This is why having a bolero is very useful and it can be a great top part for your outfit that will enhance some of the best aspects of your body like your waistline or hips if you have a tight outfit.

bolero

The bolero, also called a shrug, will cover the top of your body, the shoulders and your arms while revealing the rest of your waist and hips. It’s a perfect piece of clothing to wear over something that is too revealing or to have around when the weather gets too chilly. This is also perfect for brides as they can cover the top part of their wedding dress if it doesn’t have any sleeves.

There are many types of bolero jackets or shrugs, made from different fabrics. Some of the most common are those made from wool or other warm materials as they can be easily worn throughout winter. Also, there are also bolero jackets that are suited for more classy and elegant outfits so they can be worn indoors.  They can also have buttons or be wide open but it’s best to get one with buttons if you plan on wearing it during winter or autumn. The ones that don’t have buttons typically only consist in a fabric that goes along your back with sleeves attached to it.

There are some interesting combinations you can make with your bolero jackets. If you have a very dark outfit you can add a bit of color with a brighter bolero. On the other hand, you can soften bright colors with a more neutral bolero jacket. It’s up to you to find which combination suits you better. If you are good at knitting, you can create your own bolero, there are many patterns on the internet and you can easily find one that you like and make it on your own. If you are not good at crafts, there are thousands of shops online and shops around your area that have a great selection of bolero jackets.

Toms Shoes

If you want something different and fashionable, why not get some TOMS shoes. These cute fashion items are very lightweight and comfortable and although the company is relativity new, the shoes have made quite an impact on the fashion world. The design is based on alpargata, an Argentinean style that uses light materials such as cotton to create light footwear with a flexible rubber sole. Usually, there is no heel to the design to maintain the simple look and feel.

 Toms Shoes

When TOMS was founded, in 2006, the main goal was to help people in need. This idea came when Blake Mycoskie and his sister were in Argentina while participating in the popular TV competition, The Amazing Race. Since they started making shoes, for every pair sold, they donated one to a person that was in need of shoes but didn’t afford them. This mentality brought a lot of positive attention towards the company and the shoes quickly became a fashion symbol.

TOMS shoes can now be found in a wide variety of models and they are quite fashionable. The price is also affordable and most models cost around $50 although there are some that can set you back $100; a small price to pay for such a nice pair of shoes which you can hardly feel on your feet. They are perfect for the warm season or for wearing around the house. Once you buy one pair, you will surely come back for another, and another.

There you have it, a pair of shoes that is very stylish and which you will forget you have them one due to their light weight. The fact that with every pair you buy, you help a child in need makes TOMS shoes a must have when it comes to fashion items for every season.
