It all started back in the 2008 (as I remembered) when people queue up over night just to get their ands on the all the “limited edition” collection which makes up all the hype.
Don’t get me wrong, I love this idea, as it gives the opportunity for us to explore and experience different styles and not only limited to the generic colour block dresses/shift dresses (which I appreciate having available for plus size girls already). As I am a size US14/UK16, this is the only time we get to fit in some of these nicer designs. And most importantly, I am one of those broke girls who has a small budget for clothing items per month so really not complaining!

To the people who can afford luxury / contemporary designer clothes you
can suck it if you diss these collections, because it’s not like everyone can afford to pay US$500+ on a dress
which you only wear for 1 season. So quit complaining about how it “downgrade” your fashion label.
However I do agree, for timeless pieces, if anyone can afford it or can
stretch their budget for something that is longer lasting, go for it.
