21 Oct This means war.
It’s no secret that I’ve been copied to death, but when people try to copy Nakedglory; something I’ve poured my blood, sweat and tears into – that’s just crossing the line. I know it’s business, but FOR SHAME man! Seriously?
From my style of phototaking (watches on wood textures) down to category names (Large & Petite??? Surely there are OTHER words you could use? Big and small for example??? Even going so far as to call vintage watches “True Vintage”, almost ALL the terms I personally coined?? May I suggest thersaurus.com ?). And now it’s been taken one step further. Copying my printed watches, from florals right down to maps. Where does it stop? I mean, of course mine are still prettier, but it’s just the principle of the matter, isn’t it? Plus, one of the most blatant copycats actually had the gall to block me on instagram. Gotta say I was thoroughly offended by that; felt like an unprovoked slap to the face.
Some people have told me to just take it as a compliment. They tell me imitation is the best form of flattery, but I call bullshit. It’s just downright disrespectful and frankly quite gross. I shall mention no names cause’ I refuse to give them (yes, there are several now) any sort of fame and recognition. I can’t deny it gets under my skin that there are people that unscrupulous, but it makes me strive to be better. Rage has me raring to go; raring to grow my business and to make Nakedglory more awesome than ever. We’re kicking ass and takin’ names and will do so for a long time to come. Now we’re bringing in vintage bags, and I’m striving to add more and more goodies to the site. Did I also mention I’m working on a KICKASS new website? Stay close, friends.
On that note, check out our new printed collection! More maps and florals than ever before, and they’re ALL so pretty! Swear I almost shed tears today whilst I was unpacking! Every piece is handmade, and will only be going for $28 each or $25/each for 2 pieces.
I’m considering $23 each for 3 pieces and up but I’m not too sure yet. That’s at least $10 less than my usual printed watch prices (although those came with warranty), but hey I gotta stay competitive, right ? I’ve decided that they’ll be $25 each or $45 for two :D !
Grow where you’re planted :D
Quotes, textures and even a lil’ something something for all those hipster chicks ;D !
Pinapple prints; one of my personal favourites! So cute and bright! But I truly love pineapple prints so I may be a little biased. Or not. Still chio la!
Feathers, patterns and even tribal. Told you we’re kickin’ ass hehehe
Ombres, Chevron, Geometrics. Chevron is also another personal fave! Keeping for myself ^_^!
Florals with and without dials (just testing out the dials to see if they would look good and they turned out pretty nicely if I do say so myself :D !
And of course, maps. I put a lot of effort into these, hope you love them just as much as I do! They’re approximately 3cm in diameter, not too big and not too small (: ! Did I also mention … that there are also 50 pcs of printed petites as well ;P ? Stay tuned for sneaks!
Do take note that we’ll be at Scape this coming Saturday. I only have 1-3 pieces per design so fastest fingers first (: ! We’ll also be at the Geekspiration Roadshow at Singapore Poly on the 30th of Oct, do drop by and support if possible :D !
On a final note, I just wanna say thank you all for reading my sporadically updated blog. I really am trying, and frankly am limited to certain topics as, now that I’m working, I can’t afford to offend certain people. All I can do now is bitch loudly in private *sheds tear*.
Have a good week ahead y’all, 明天会更好 (: !
