Early this week Phoebe Philo released her much anticipated collection, and it was priced way out of most people’s budgets. It was actually pretty shocking and disappointing.

It was up to The Row levels of prices and higher, which I guess is apparently affordable to enough people that it sold out really fast.

After, came some funny memes regarding Zara running off to make Phoebe Philo pieces which is both funny and sad because it is true.

And while we all dislike fast fashion, sometimes it is the only way we can get the looks that we love at an affordable price.

Just like The Row, even on the secondhand market, I will still be priced out of buying it.

It looks like I am going to have to stick with trying to seek out old Celine pieces if I want the Phoebe Philo vibe.
