An apple a day…

What’s this, you ask? Why, an apple badge, of course. I have yet to do so on this blog, but ‘in the real world’ I do tend to bitch about how wrong it is for the high-street to copy designer bits so blatantly. One thing is to take inspiration, another thing is to do replicas (so now I have just bitched on the blogoshpere as well as in the real world). However, after coming across this apple, I think I better shut up. ‘Cause let’s face it, at the end of the day it’s a lot healthier for my wallet if I spend a couple of quid on this super cute badge from Mango than £100 on a pair of Miu Miu earrings.

Let’s just say Mango might have taken inspiration from Miu Miu… the badge isn’t really that similar to these cuties, is it?

OK, maybe it is… I don’t regret getting this badge, since I am pretty much in love with it, but it is proving to be a bit of a tricky piece. I’m still trying to figure out what kind of things I can match it with. Any suggestions or ideas would be much appreciated!

    I just love fruit-themed jewelry! And you shouldn't feel guilty about buying an imitation of a designer piece. Besids, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery 🙂

    Aww I love that pin!! I actually almost bought it at Mango, and then I didn't… one of those stupid moments where I thought to myself, "Eh, well, I can think about it and come back." Well, when I went back, it wasn't there anymore since everything was bought up during the sales! 🙁 PS Is it weird I think the Mango pin is way cuter than the Miu Miu earrings..? 😛
