Topshop vs. Isabel Marant

Just browsing Topshop, as you do, and came across their ARLENE Western Side Zip Boots (similar style here), now is it just me or are they a near spit of the hugely popular Isabel Marant Dicker boots that every other person in the fashwan world wears?

And to be completely honest I breezed straight past them, it was only because earlier today I was looking at a picture of Kate Bosworth wearing said Isabel Marant boots that I thought well I could just buy them for £62 instead of the £345 price tag the Dicker boots have.

But it just goes to show that we covet the brand and status not the actual design of the product itself, I don’t think I’d pick a pair of boots like this but if I had the money sitting there for me to buy the Dicker boots I probably wouldn’t hesitate. Well maybe if I considered I could buy a Mulberry bag with the money instead…
