Accessories are normally an afterthought, so much so there was actually a accessory store named “Afterthoughts” in the 90’s.
But thats not the case for me. I think accessories ARE the outfit. I worked in retail sales a looooong time and I know my customers. The biggest concerns a customer has while shopping is will anybody else have this on? I can’t tell you how many times customers have asked me “how many of these have you sold?” because they fear they might have a TWIN!
The sure way to make sure you dont have a twin is to accessorize, period! Unless you had a piece custom made the odds of someone having the same outfit as you are very likely. Remember Its not what you wear but how you wear it. I love that with my pieces I am able to show women you do not have to spend your entire paycheck on one bag!
I select my pieces based on pure passion. Not trend, not because somebody else wore it, simply because I love it (not like it I love it). As much as I try to stay away from trends my team and I can’t help but notice the similarity between our pieces as some high end pieces.
When I first launched my site a friend called to congratulate me and she also told me that Cardi B wore a bag that looks exactly like my Dynasty Bag. So of course I started digging and low and behold there it was. When I saw the resemblance I was first of all surprised that my Dynasty bag looked as good as Balenciaga's handbag.Here are these bags of similar shape and style but a $2300 price difference. Let that sink in!
Im a fashion lover so I appreciate the quality BUT lets be honest this one is kind of a no brainer.
This is prime example of customers only buying into a brand name. High End brands have gotten so comfortable that they feel they can put their name on anything, even styles they did not originate, and they will sell for big bucks. I am not saying don’t buy designer bags. Im saying you don’t have to nor should you break the bank to fashionable! Labels do not validate you!
If you have true style you appreciate labels but you don’t need them.
