It's fabric, people!



Dear Pull&Bear,

You know I'm one of your most loyal customers. A big part of my wardrobe consists of clothes, shoes and accessories I got from you. I love your designs and I really don't have any complaints about the quality. You get what you pay for, they say. And, until recently, I was equally content with your pricing too. But only a few days ago, I walk into one of your stores, and what do I see? A pair of cute red peep-toe flats. I was sold. And then I caught a glimpse of the price tag. 35,95 freakin' euros for a pair of fabric flats? Once again: They're made of fabric. Not leather. Not even pleather. And don't get me wrong, I don't want to come of as a cheap-ass bitch here, but as I mentioned before, I am and have been a loyal customer of yours for quite some years now, and I have come to a point where I know how you normally price your stuff. I can guess without even looking at the tag. So, in this case, where you actually trying to say more like 24,95? Think about it. Cause those flats are damn cute!

Sincerely,
A worried customer

Hi Lopi, I totally agree with your new post. Beautiful red flats though... Well, you could check out H&M's flats, or even better - Oysho's wedges/espadrilles, quite similar to your Bershka ones, in different styles and colours, and good prices= always!

agree ... last year I bought a similar pair from H&M for 9,90 and littlestylist bought them also in a different colour.

plus this particular design of p&b is a rip off from camper's adorable twins (which I wanted to buy, but I'm over my spending limit for this month)
