Quality above quantity?

I'm not a big fan of those cheap Asian webshops. You know, the kind of shop that sell's copies of designer items. If you are in doubt about a shop, check the bag section, much likely that you'll recognize the current it-bags! And that's the main reason I don't like them. The prices are great, but the circumstances are probably less great, and originality is hard too find. Although the designs are often really pretty, and these type of shops are the only places to find cheap knock-off's of high fashion clothing. But I do think it's a pest for designers. Every season they work hard to finish their collection in time and promote it. Imagine suddenly spotting cheap and of much lower quality copies of your hard work. Quality above quantity!
But still the temptation is quite strong, if you spot those beautiful designs, that you'll hardly find in regular stores. I might consider making an exception for these beauties:

All from Sheinside.

The two coats on top seem like the perfect coats for the type of the year, since the weather feels like the end of September. Aka still quite warm. Two years I was looking for a black cape-like coat (remember?) which I didn't find, but which I still think it's cute. Especially with that cute furry cap. And that dress is a perfect basic exemplar for autumn. I imagine you can style it like a Little Black Dress in a million ways.
Although I completely fell in love with the olive shade on top (trendy!), I went absolutely head over heels for the first coat. So if you are in a random-giving-gifts-to-strangers-mood, you know where to find me! ;)

  1. Aah ik twijfel ook altijd zo hard over die sites! Maar ik kies dan meestal niet voor de cheap knock-offs maar voor de ontwerpen die mij aan niets doen denken. Zo voel ik mij toch lichtjes minder schuldig en heb ik nog leuke dingen aan voor weinig geld :)
