The Issue of Fast Fashion Companies Copying Big Brands

Over the last couple of weeks I came across a few articles that were about the ever increasing problem of fast fashion companies like ZARA, Mango and H&M copying designer brands’ pieces in order to sell copies for much lower prices and a lot quicker. Is it OK? Is the argument that this keeps the fashion industry turning valid? Should the brands take it as a form of flattery? Just like to any other story, there are two, or even more sides to it, which both fast fashion industry and designer brands might have to acknowledge.


Quick Tutorial: Eyeliner for Hooded Eyes

At the beginning of the month I posted a quick guide – Eyeliner for Beginners with a couple of key tips that make all the difference.
This week, I’m helping out my ladies that have more hooded eyes and don’t think the classic eyeliner suits them that much. I felt left out of that beauty look for the longest time, simply because I didn’t know there’s an alternative I could easily do! No more ladies, we got this one too! ;)


Tips for Buying Essential Accessories

I used to buy bags that were only appropriate for chic city lunches (think: Serena VdW) to wear to uni only to find out they don’t go with my style (I was only dreaming about it) and they were really annoying when I tried to stuff in my notebooks and the rest of ‘just in case’ nonsense. Took me too long to notice that I ended up carrying only the Adidas messenger bag. I had no other fancy occasions to wear those bags to and that’s where I realised that buying accessories based on your activities (and style!) is the smartest (and cheapest) way to do it.
