We just arrived in Rome, Italy this morning from Frankfurt. Italy is home to many world renowned labels like Armani, Gucci and Prada. Another Italian label called Emilio Pucci is synonymous with geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colors. When a woman wears a Pucci dress to an event, she is bound to stand out in a crowd. The only problem is that the prints are just so distinct that when she wears it once, it will retain in the minds of her friends for quite some time.
This fashionista who belongs to the medical field has been photographed in the magazines wearing her Pucci dresses. Her stature in life gives the people around her an impression that all her Pucci dresses are authentic. What these people do not know is that she mixes her genuine collection with over runs (euphemism for knock offs) purchased from Metro Walk Mall. The problem with what she is doing is that once these people discover that she buys knock off pieces, they will think that everything in her collection is counterfeit. One rotten apple spoils the whole barrel.
We should not patronize fake items because this is a way of supporting piracy. Instead of buying something counterfeit, I advise her to save her shopping money and buy something unbranded. If she is truly a fashionista, then she should be able to carry an inexpensive outfit effortlessly and make it look chic and elegant.
Do you know who is this fashionista? I will give you a clue. She has been commended by a magazine for being consistently well-dressed. I just don’t know if the people who gave her the recognition know that she is not only a fan of Pucci but also of Poochi.
