First, I’d really like to let you know I ADORE your blog, how you love fashion and good life but in most of your posts, how you still seem smart and down to earth, not the “lavish bimbo” many of these famous jet-setters look like.
Something I didn’t read yet, and it would be an interesting topic to talk about, is the difference of the Real jet set babe and the Wannabe jet set babe.
Let me explain: as there are women who really live in huge wealth and show it off, there are many women, oftenly even good looking, but who probably are on budget, and spend their time trying to seem as rich as the first group, trying to boast the same status.
For instances, among your jet-setters photos, I discovered some girls who seem to live on “fake”: the reason why I thought so is that I saw an AMOUNT of totally fake designer clothes, and I’m telling you with quite security that they are fake as I worked for 5 years in a shop selling the the best designer collections (from Hermes to Fendi to Louboutin, a multibrand) and as I did it with passion, I could spot a good replica anywhere.
The same for all those girls taking pictures next to luxurious cars or yachts that are not theirs, nor of their men – but just trying to make people believe it.
So, what’s your method of spotting a real jet-setter and a wannabe jet-setter? Thanks in advance for your answer.
Thank you for your email! 🙂
I know exactly what you mean and what type of Jetset Babes you’re referring to. I personally know of several famous Instagram girls that I personally often post pictures of and whom you would describe a “Wannabe Jetset Babe”.
I know from several different sources that these girls on purposely take pictures of themselves in borrowed designer clothing, inside friends extravagant cars/yachts and in luxurious resorts/restaurants where they’ve been sponsored to attend in return for promotion on their instagrams account with high amount of followers.
And yes, they also have many designer purses which are fake – but they get them in high quality from China which makes it not easy to spot on a simple image. (Just search for Chanel & Celine replicas on google and you’ll find tons of websites selling bags that look very genuine, it’s more common then we think to use replicas!)
My answer to you is not going to be very exciting, as it’s hard to spot these type of girls; there isn’t a universal code which they break that make them stand out as “wannabes”.
On the other hand I feel it’s not really that important to spot them anyway.
I mean, in the end of the day, why do we need to care about the fact of them having the need to pretend to be rich but in reality they’re not? Some people go through fases in life where they want to put up an image for the world because they have not come to a form of acceptance of who they truly are.
I don’t want to look down on these girls and call them “Wannabe JetsetBabes” because it makes me feel bad. I can with full compassion understand in a way why they do this, because the jet set world can be quite toxic and giving you the feeling to be someone you’re not in order to play with the cool kids.
Sure, it’s not a behavior that I agree on but again – the Jet set world is built upon superficiality so it’s kinda expected to have people like this around. And not to mention how many MEN do this too!
It’s a shame that people think that wealth is the coolest thing on earth. I think living a comfortable lifestyle is very cool, but when it reaches the point that people want other people to know they have money – it puts me off so much.
Sorry for my boring answer, but I don’t know what to say really. I think getting in to the circle of people, listening to reliable sources and seeing for yourself is the only way to “discover them”.
My advice is to put your energy on ignoring them and just take them for what they are: great people just like us but who have different needs of validation. That’s it!
Feel free to email me again if you want to follow up! Big kiss xxx
