i got this beauty-full wildfox ouija board shirt/dress/tunic in the mail today.. and i have to say GO WILDFOX! i love this brand, and i am by no means a brand whore or do i know much if anything about fashion.
i wanted to comment however, that i’ve seen a lot of folks asking the wildfox girls about the prices of their items, and why wildfox clothing is pricier than say wal-mart, or other fast fashion discount stores like forever 21..
and let me say this, and it rings true for just about anything..
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
it’s just fact. if you spend $15 to get a tattoo, compared to the person who is spending $700, there’s going to be a marked difference in quality (unless of course you’re banging the tattoo artist in which case, discounts are generally awesome)..
if you spend $6 on a tank top from wal mart and wear it five times and it looks like shit.. you’ve gotten what you’ve paid for. wildfox clothing might be a little pricier but in the grand scheme of things, i own several wildfox pieces and i’ve worn the hell out of them.. they’re soft and buttery and are still gorgeous as the day i’ve bought them.
the same goes for better quality jewelry (this includes wildfox, disney couture - don’t hate.. i love fairy tales).. all it takes is to pick up a piece of that jewelry and feel the weight and the quality in comparison to say something from claires.. if i grab something cheap from claires i’m not surprised when it’s broken or half ruined a month later..
there’s also nothing saying you have to have a bling bling wardrobe either.. most of my clothes come from second hand stores, ebay, thrift shops, yard sales, and very occaisionally from sale racks at the mall. i fork over my hard earned cash for quality pieces once in a while and i am glad of it.
i believe in supporting designers who are trying to make a difference.. fashion is an art form.. and plus - just go look at wildfox clothing. it’s so fun and fabulous, and it makes me feel like a francesca lia block character! now if only i could find a pair of those platform ballerina slippers in my size. stupid size 8 feet, i will cut you off.
anyways, the point of the matter is.. go wildfox.
