I like to think that I am an open-minded, fashion-forward kind of person. I love clothes and can happily click away the hours admiring various genres of style and sartorial garb.
Even if I don't wear a certain style myself, I like to think that I can appreciate a wide variety of fashion whims.
However, recent items on Net-A-Porter are making me question myself.
Perhaps I am too old and cynical, but the following items really do make me wonder:
Thongs (flip-flops) are a beach staple in my wardrobe. But not ones that cost over $30 or so. But they're Valentino, so they must be worth it? right?
Dungarees. A worker's staple. These at $578 just scream overpriced scam to me, as do the espadrilles.
Perhaps I should støp here. I just can't understand that headband or hat for that price. Ditto the tie-dyed chiffon jumpsuit.
And my daughter who is 12 has some lovely neon cut-off shorts that cost $15 from Target.
I'm dead certain that J Brand are paying their seamstresses a decent wage..... well at least let's hope they are.
And don't even get me started on those Kenzo sweatshirts.....
Anyway. Apologies if anyone is planning to purchase any of the above. Put it down to me being a cynical old git.
To end on a happy and less bitchy note, here's a pic of the view down to Bronte beach yesterday.
What gets your goat in fashion?
Hope you're having/have had a great weekend!
