Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves... three months later, I'm a gal in trouble and I haven't seen him for a while
Ahhh, the necklace I have lusted over since 2007, and despite working a 5 minute walk from the Tatty Devine shop and having had over 4 years to save for it... I still don't own it. *COUGH COUGH HINT HINT* You can see it here in all its glory or here IN TOPSHOP plagiarised in the jewellery section.
Oh man it is the bad times. I was so shocked, contemplated buying it, then thought I would be so upset with myself never owning the real thing. I know this isn't the first time topshop have done this, I believe they did it to my friend Jackie over at this charming girl, and numerous other places. I know, working in a large corporation, that the feeling of guilt rarely comes into making business decisions you just can't have that sort of mentality, copying one cable knit cardy is one thing, but come on, blates copying jewellery as unique as this, is not supportive of the British designers in anyway. Bad times Topshop, real bad times.
It is my birthday tomorrow, despite being into a 12 stone cast I am now really looking forward to a nice day at work, cake and my new polaroid!
