Fake or Real by What is Style by Yellow Tulip

I don’t buy fake anything – even when fake tan was in, I refused to be like everyone else, rushing off to the beauty parlours to turn a lovely shade of orange. I did it the good old-fashioned way, and enjoyed a light smattering of sun (well as it turns out my heritage has a little Maori in it) – so ended up with a helping hand.

But this week, I was asked the question that often gets asked in regards to something I own. Was it fake or real? I tend to be insulted by the question initially, and then feel somehow that I have to justify it is the real thing.fake_for_real_70

Should I be hiding my possessions away that I have lovingly saved for, or just tell them how it is? Others I guess just can’t see the value.  I always try to buy quality over quantity – something that has been with me from a very early age.  Ask any girl, and I’m sure they’d rather have 1 quality handbag or pair of shoes, rather than 3 or 4 cheap pairs. Guys may have a different perspective, particularly when it comes to shopping for clothes!

The debate over fake versus real, takes an ugly turn when it comes to fur though. I don’t think anyone would be seen dead (pardon the pun) to admit they were wearing, or have a real fur coat hiding in the wardrobe. It just isn’t worth it. I have to say though that many of the more artificial or let’s say fake fashion items for sale more often than not, do a great job in pretending to be something that they’re not.

For me, I know and have to live with the conscious decision that what I put on my body and/or wear has to have originated from somewhere. Individual choice dictates how we choose to spend our money and the price we pay for quality.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

  1. In my personal opinion, if it is something trendy, don´t spend a lot of money buying it. Lets call it, buying a low cost version. If it is something classic then buy the real thing.

  2. Makes alot of sense as too often people get caught up in the trend rather than spend the money on something that will never date. Thanks for your comment. Nice to hear from you.

  3. We say no to FAKE!!!!!!
