#latergram from march 2013. Saw this in goodwill, I love it so much you don’t even know.
It is time to watch Titan AE. For the millionth time in my life, but for the first time in years.
If I have 25/30 dollars burning a hole in my pocket, I like to search ebay for religious item lots. This is just the saint medals I got in a huge lot for $26. #saintmedal #saints

"There has never been a time without unicorns. We live forever. We are as old as the sky, old as the moon."
The Last Unicorn (1982)
I’m only posting a screen shot of this because I don’t want to stir the pot with the original poster and their fans who are agreeing wholeheartedly, but… I legitimately do not understand this. Honest question: is this a parody of some sort? Because… that is just a word in the Barbie font on generic articles of clothing. There are so many designers that use the Barbie font for their name, I am pretty sure they are all ripping off Barbie, not this girl. Like isn’t that the whole point of using the Barbie font? To rip off Barbie? This has been a mega trend in the past handful of years.
Yeah, I don’t really see it, either. If the actual articles of clothing themselves were closer to the ones shes selling I could see where she’s coming from, but just being in the same font and on pink clothing doesn’t seem like a rip off to me.
I guess her “clothing line” is like a large sized crop top and a mini skirt, which I guess this sort of is. But even then, it’s a pretty generic item of clothing that is massively popular currently because it was massively popular throughout the 80s and 90s. Like every designer is using it. I have no idea who this person is, but I am really surprised that they are getting a bunch of “OH NO HOW DARE THEY RIP OFF YOUR RIP OFF!” comments and it’s just very perplexing to me. How can so many people be such dummies?
This isn’t the first time this designer has ripped
off & has ripped off other independent designers as well.
But how is this even a ripoff? I can see that the first one might be, but this is literally just that they are both using the Barbie font on a crop top, which many (many many many) designers have done lately. They are simply both dipping from the same very shallow, very popular, well.
If you’d refer back to the original post before you might have realized that the I’m a mess shirt was also lifted before. it just seems mighty strange that hes been accused in the past of jacking other peoples designs to sell at outlandishly inflated prices. Refer to this click through link to an open letter article posed about his past transgressions against other fellow designers/Artists .
Yes, I get that the “I’m a Mess Shirt” was a ripoff and I believe you that they have ripped off designers in the past. But I still do not see how, in any way, that doesn’t involve including “just like Barbie did”, this is a ripoff of an indie designer.
I live in a cave and I do not know who either of these people are, like even a little bit, but all I am seeing are 2 Barbie knockoff dresses and one caps-lock, literal crying, accusation that they were the inventor of the Barbie knockoff and a bunch of reblogs saying “how dare they knock off Barbie too!”. If this Jeremy Scott dress is another in a long line of ripoffs, it’s obviously a ripoff of Barbie, not those “Babe” shirts.
Anonymous said: ...if she had just launched her stuff, how would Moschino see it, design it, print the fabric, sew the garment, schedule the show, put on the show, photograph the dress, and have it get posted online by the next day?
That is just one of the many things I find perplexing about this whole thing! I can only assume they mean that the sneak peeks they were posting were what was “plagiarized” but the whole post is just so bizarre that I really don’t know.
