...very, very overpriced versions of items you could have bought in the 60's/70's for a fraction of the price?

Yes, but surely everything could be bought for a fraction of the price 30 to 40 years ago?!

Well, yes, but since time travel isn't an option, I don't understand your beef?

I like Orla stuff. I think its fine. You don't have to buy it if you don't like it so try not to worry too much smile

I am partial to a little OK but being naturally frugal, I wait for the sales - I've bought the midi sling handbags for half price 2 years on the trot. I've also scored some lovely OK bedlinen from TKMaxx of all places earlier in the year.

Not sure what point you are trying to make but I think I can help. If you don't like it or think it is too expensive then don't buy it. This is a nice and easy AIBU!

Orla Kiely - shite.

Cath Kidston - even more shite.

Not an original idea between the two of them and thousands of suckers fall for it. [sigh]

It has a retro vibe but it's way prettier than most of the actual 70s stuff, and you would have been hardpressed to find patterned sheets in Egyptian cotton 40 years ago. Polyester yes.
The handbags are really very nice.

Don't understand the current resurgence - she's Been around about 15 years. Never been a fan and think OP is right. But then I don't like the original 1960's style. Think it is boring but each to own.
