Hi there - I'm newish but really loving this board. Have a question, when somebody admires what you are wearing do you find it acceptable if they follow it by asking from where it was bought? I'm totally ok with this but a friend finds it odd as if the admirer wants to buy same or work out cost etc etc!! What do you think please?

I don't think it's odd to ask where you got something- it may just mean that they like the general syle and like to see more, not necessarily that they want to rush off and buy the same item.

Oh and welcome OP! grin

Thanks - it's fun here! But getting hooked!!!

Our friend was wearing this very convincing understated necklace which looked very much like the real thing - but when asked where it was from it was Swarovski. No big deal, right? Other friend felt it was a bit off to question origin of jewellery. Not the most pressing issue in the world I'm aware, just interested in your take!
