Cheap and chic of the week


Don’t these $50 moto jeans from Zara look an awful lot like these crazy wicked pricey ones from Balmain?

    The Zara are mid-rise compared to low-rise on the Balmain pair. Even better! 🙂

    yes!! I know because I wanted the insanely priced Balmain when they came out!

    I thought you were boycotting Zara due to some antisemitic sentiments?

    Those are damn nice. But I am trying so hard not to shop Zara.
    Not easy!!!!!

    Not shopping Zara or any of the other places where the prices are so cheap I can be sure somebody got paid almost nothing to make the thing that will rest on my skin…

    I guess Zara bought the Balmain version too… And promptly copied them.

  7. After watching The True Cost documentary a couple of weeks ago, I’m trying to avoid shopping at Zara and other fast fashion retailers.

    With that said, I can’t do zippers on the front of pants. It’s really unflattering on me.

    Are we mad at Zara? I can’t remember. The labor issue is a perennial of course, with almost every retailer?… but was there something else too?

    Not to worry though, right now I am trying to work up the energy for a big closet cleanout.
