With more and more people looking to save the planet and keep the world in tip-top condition, many people are looking to major brands and corporations to change their ways. Yes, this is even the case in the fashion world. Sustainable fashion is the hot new trend, with more and more designers and fashion houses choosing to invest in organic fabrics and materials, and reducing their carbon footprint. Thanks to pressure from animal rights groups, many corporations are now limiting or excluding completely the use of animal products and exotic skins. This major fashion brand has been the latest company to join the ranks.
Using Animal Skins In Fashion
The world of fashion revolves around various different materials, shapes, and styles. Because every item is different, designers are always looking for new and improved fabrics to make their clothes out of. In the past, there has been a huge number of items made from animal products. Yes, clothing and accessories have been made from fur, leather, and exotic skins from the likes of crocodile, python, lizard, and more. Over the past few years, the use of leather and fur has reduced significantly, and now it’s the turn of exotic skins.
Taking The Skins Away
Because more people are becoming aware of their impact on the world, they want to buy sustainable products that save the planet and the environment. So, the need and the demand for exotic skins has reduced. This, coupled with the pressure from animal rights charities, means that fashion brands have become more aware of their own footprint on the world. In the past few years, the likes of Chanel, Victoria Beckham, and now Selfridges have all pledged to stop using these exotic animal skins.
A Plan In Place
Although this major British department store will not stop using exotic skins straight away, they have put a pledge in place to stop using them by 2020. They have not used real fur within their products for over a decade, and they want to make the move to become even more animal and planet-friendly. This has gone down extremely well with those who shop in the store, and those who have been fans of the department store for a while now.
With more and more people becoming economically conscious, it’s about time more fashion brands followed suit.
Coming across coincidences that are too good to be true, are sure to get a double look, if not a photo taken to remember the funny moment. Thankfully, this is exactly what happened with these, and a collection of our favorites are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
If you’re ever on the hunt for a blonde lady, look no further than the ever promising British public bus. Credited for their good public transport links, it is no surprise everyone hopes to hop on and off the big red buses to get to their destination. However, it seems that this bus had a particular description of their travelers that day and the requirements were blonde and women. This would not have been a great day when any brunettes turned up and got turned away by the driver.
Construction is usually an inconvenience for most drivers trying to make their commute to and from work. The work being done on the roads is sure to set their traveling time back a considerable amount, so it means leaving the house earlier or getting back later. While most will be sitting in their cars horrified at the sight of the orange and white cones staring them in their face, pedestrians are taking another response to it – If you can’t beat them, join them.
The person who caught this on camera was definitely at the right place at the right time. The way the twins are sleeping on the right of the photo, with the twins on the left giving the same expression as one another, is pure gold. Twins, in general, deserve a double take, but when it gets to the point where they are dressed the same, acting the same, and look the same all at the same time, does not happen every day – especially not two sets of twins next to each other.
Getting rips in your stockings in one of the most annoying problems that women have to deal with. Your outfit is complete, you look great and before you know it a small little snag turns into, well… this. They say clear nail polish is the simple hack that can stop a rip from expanding, but we guess this lady didn’t have that handy. At least you can say that the tear in her stocking was architecturally sound.
Lost in her own thoughts, this woman riding London’s tube was biting her nails while thinking about the stressful day she had just had at work that day. Knowing she would return to the office just hours later stressed her out even more, and she could not concentrate on any other thoughts. Hopefully, this stressful time will pass so that her nail-biting does not become a serious issue, or even fatal. If only she could lose concentration for a moment to see the newspaper headline to her right.
This is a once in a lifetime photo to say the least. Was this butterfly looking to reconnect with his family, or he perhaps wanted a quiet place to rest in good company? Either way this magical photo is a coincidence like we’ve never seen before. It’s unclear whether the butterfly stayed around for a while or just dropped by for a quick pic, but either way we’re happy this photo was caught and recorded.
Sometimes you’ve got to look really closely to see what was in front of you the whole time. As for shoe shopping, you never want to miss out on the perfect pair, so it is important to keep those eyes peeled at all times. At $1.99 we’re not sure how you could go wrong with these stylish flip-flops and it is unclear as to why they are priced at such a good bargain! Perhaps it is the winning prize for whoever scouts out these hidden gems.
Karma Is A Snitch
We’ve all been there. Someone has offered to take a picture, and either yourself or your companion in the photo has found it funny to play the joke of the bunny ears. While this can be deemed as a funny and harmless prank, it is not always seen this way by everyone and could be seen as a joke played on someone else’s expense. That wouldn’t be the case to worry about here since the lighting has formed a shadow of the bunny ears behind the perpetrators head as well.
Sofa(r) So Good
The news never lies, and if it is written in the newspaper, then it must be true. While you may read that and laugh thinking it is complete nonsense, we’re going to have to follow our words on this one after agreeing with the headline. What are the chances that a newspaper with the advertisement using a picture of a sofa would be the same sofa found in the house? Hopefully, this house owner saw this as a sign to be out with the old and in with the new.
Employee Of The Month
Sometimes taking your own advice rather than just giving it out will work to your advantage too. While many employees look to get their work done and not face the wrath of their boss for any wrongdoings, we are sure their boss would hope their safety comes first. While putting up a poster which clearly states, ‘Think Safety First!’ we’re having a hard time understanding how this gentleman thought it was appropriate to balance on the handrails while hanging it up.
Make Up Your Mind
If the Evening Standard wants to be taken seriously, they may want to reconsider their writers. While publishing a story about the problems of millennial behavior such as being on social media, the newspaper has used this same page as a platform to promote their own Twitter page. If we’re meant to ‘stop tweeting,’ how could we possibly follow the Evening Standard on Twitter? At this time, we have to choose our actions wisely and listen to one or the other.
I’ve Got A Bad Feeling
How can we trust a psychic medium such as Joe Power when he can’t even see that his show was going to be canceled. Stating it was down to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ certainly is not going to work in the psychic’s favor, and could perhaps be the end of his career. We would ask what other career paths he see’s himself doing, but then again, can we really trust anything he see’s anymore? Whatever it may be, we’re sure it is better than looking into the future.
Testing The Taste
To help keep pets off house furniture and other items you don’t want to find destroyed, sprays are sold with a bitter taste to repel your furry friends from going anywhere near. However, it seems that this spray is not doing its job too well since the pet of this homeowner has found the spray bottle and left his mark. Clearly not deterred from the bitter taste, the pet has destroyed the bottom of the bottle, so any other item sprayed with this is not going to have much luck.
Remember when you were at school and the teacher would label certain items in the room so you could remember the word? Well, it seems that Moon Street is helping out anyone who passes, to remind them exactly what the white circle in the sky is. Of course, the eclipsed moon is more of a rare sight and an astronomical phenomenon, so the fact it was perfectly positioned where the Moon sign was pointing to, just makes it even better!
Gene Screams For Ice Cream
After hearing “Kiss” being played time and time again in his own home, this middle school student felt like a fan himself, and how else to show your favorite band than wear their face on a T-shirt? With arts and crafts getting slightly out of control the day before, an ice cream sticker ended up on the back of a chair and Gene Simmons just could not resist the treat when the student took his seat. We’re sure that’s how his famous pose began in the first place!
Good Head On His Shoulders
The United Nations was established as an international organization that worked on promoting international order and cooperation following World War II. However, even with its best intentions at maintaining world peace, it is one of the most criticized organizations in the world. It seems as though that even its own employees are starting to feel the same as the public towards the organization, which was made apparent when this soldier stood in the perfect place. Perhaps it was not his intent, but his UN helmet made for a great funny coincidence.
Life Imitating Art
If it’s good enough to go on the wall of the Art Institute of Chicago, then it is good enough to wear. After all, you could say you are wearing art. When the museum hosted “dress like your favorite painting” day, this guy took the easy way out by finding the most simple piece in the museum. Fortunately, he had the perfect jacket to go with the color block canvas, and we’re not sure which one is more worthy of being on the wall.
A Bit Too Trendy
You know you’ve got your marketing right when a guy who’s walked into the store has walked out looking exactly like the model in the window. The model was certainly working his shirt, beige pants and glasses in the shot, that this shopper just could not help himself but completely follow suit. Perhaps he thought if he dressed like the model, he could be the next big thing! Otherwise, he is just a walking advertisement for the store, and we’re sure they’re pleased with that.
I Mustache You A Question
This news reporter seems to have got quite the shock when he saw his exact clone come up behind him in regards to a robbing story. Many must have suspected that this journalist was hiding something, and perhaps he wasn’t exactly who he said he was. While getting on with his evening role as a reporter, he was probably hoping to get out of their quick before the cops started having their suspicions. Actually, it was too late; they were definitely already heading straight to the news station.
Save The Date
We’ve all seen the movies when some guest in the crowd gets up during your vows and tells you you’re making a huge mistake. While we hope that happens very infrequently in real life, there are perhaps other signs during the day that let you know that this union may not be the wisest decision of yours. This couple picked up a newspaper on the day of their wedding to keep as memorabilia and its headline may have been a clear warning to the couple.
You Are What You Eat
It’s the end of year party at your kid’s school, and once again you’re made to turn up with a forced smile and pretend as if you’re enjoying the day’s events. While the whole thing can be quite the drag, there are ways to keep yourself entertained, and one parent decided to find things that looked like the foods they were eating. Having taken the best seat in the house, their chocolate covered marshmallow looked exactly like the man’s head in front of them.
Camouflage For The Air-Conditioned Jungle
These house owners must have loved their carpet design so much that, when they went to get themselves a house pet, they subconsciously went with a cat who had a similar fur pattern to that of their carpet. While it may have been in their taste, they would perhaps soon regret their decision when their cats become camouflaged in the carpet, and they cant find them. This would be a good time to consider changing the carpet or getting their cats UV jackets.
Thrown Into The Deep End
Visiting Siofok, Hungary during the summer season is the perfect vacation spot. Thanks to its beautiful beaches, it is a popular destination for many vacation goers, but that does not mean it is summer weather all the time. While the sun may be shining during the year, the strong rainy season does cause the occasional flooding and city streets become filled with water. That doesn’t stop those surfing fanatics from putting on their swimwear and hitting the flooded streets!
Following in the footsteps of Louis Armstrong seems like an unobtainable dream to most. We can all daydream and wonder what it would be like, but not all of us are cut out to be astronauts. Luckily, scientists have come up with a new way to make that distant dream a reality. Forget the rockets and all that we know about making our way to the moon, the moon is now coming to us. It may take a while to get to Earth, but things are looking promising.
Nurse For 28 Years
As a nurse, you take care of many patients young and old. A nurse in the U.S. took care of a premature baby 28 years ago. There is not necessarily anything strange about that, right? Well, that baby found himself going through medical school and ended up working in the same hospital as the nurse. Now, they work together as doctor and nurse. They took a photo to immortalize the moment and share with the world this funny coincidence.
Time Heals Everything
Everybody loves fortune cookies, especially children, as they may contain funny and inspirational messages. This man’s daughter recently had a chin surgery, and after that, they decided to enjoy Chinese takeaway. Nothing out of the ordinary… except… Her fortune cookie had something prepared specifically for her. The message in the fortune cookie told her to keep her chin up and all her wounds will heal with time. What a funny coincidence!
Every time we visit a landmark, taking a photo is a must to show off to our followers on social media. This is exactly what two Chinese people did, which is nothing weird. They later found themselves married and going through memories and photos. That was when they discovered that he had photobombed his wife’s picture in their teenage years, appearing in her life long before they knew each other. You could call this love at first sight.
Taking an Uber to work or while going out is nothing out of the ordinary, but imagine what it feels like getting into the car and seeing someone who looks like they could be your twin brother. This happened to one man who had never thought of ever taking a picture with his Uber driver. The two look very alike, like two peas in a pod. The only differences are a couple of pounds and a mustache.
Together Since Birth
The world is not as big as it seems, and this next funny coincidence proves it. A man got married and thought he met his wife for the first time during his early twenties, but this proved to be wrong. His parents showed one particular photo that proved their mothers were actually good friends during high school, and the married couple first met when the wife was born. The husband was present and standing next to her as a baby.
Hide And Seek In Traffic
Everyone loves playing hide and seek, and the phrase “peekaboo, I see you” will surely put a smile on your face no matter the age. This funny coincidence appeared in the middle of traffic. One car had a license plate that read “PEEKABOO,” while on its right side came another one that read “I SEE U.” Time for everyone to run and find a good place to hide.
Brothers In Arms… Or Shirts
Women are known to have a not so friendly approach when they dress alike and meet at the same event, but matching creates a sacred bond for men. Two men found themselves attending a wedding wearing the same shirt and even jeans of the same color. But the coincidences do not stop here. Notice the glasses and identical bow ties. These men are bound to be brothers from other mothers!
Like Father Like Son
Matthew was always destined to make a name for himself. However, Matthew took this notion quite literally and decided to follow a career path which used his name to begin with. While most parents are hoping for their children to become lawyers or doctors, Matthew’s parents had essentially set him up to be a Europe Correspondent when he was given the name, Matthew Correspondent. With a last name like that, Matthew never really had any other chance to try out something else.
There are so many car brands and models produced, each one of them with different specifications and options. Therefore, finding one with the same color as yours can be a little tricky, especially if it’s not a common model. However, this next photo shows three identical cars parked beside each other, all of them sporting the exact same color. Here is where the next coincidence strikes. The color of the cars matches the color of the building, too!
Storms can be devastating and often result in significant damage, with tiles being blown away from buildings and even trees ripped out. Nonetheless, one lucky guy managed to bypass God’s fury during a storm and found a perfect spot to park his car. Not just one, but two trees were pulled up by the roots and fell down next to his car, the vehicle getting away without a scratch. That’s some lucky event, isn’t it? We hope we’ll be at least half as lucky as this guy when the next storm strikes.
Having a dog in your household means a little furry friend to play with. But two dogs are even better, as they can play with each other when you find yourself busy. Someone adopted a dog that looks like a miniature version of the older, 3-year-old German Shepherd. The most distinctive thing to notice is the right ear of both dogs seems to lie down instead of standing up. The two lovely balls of fur certainly look like they are related, don’t they?!
It must be hard to go for a drink with a friend and remain incognito when your face is being plastered over screens just behind you in the bar you’re at. Any passerby is going to do a double take on the man and then at the screen to realize that the celebrity is just meters away from them. If he wants to remain incognito, then perhaps he should remove the hat and invest in some sunglasses. Then he’ll just be another man in the bar with an impressive beard.
Inspired By Nature
Palm trees are found in hot and exotic counties, so they bring a sense of warmth and excitement. Taking that in mind, this girl wanted to bring that same tropical feeling wherever she went and got herself the ‘Palm Tree’ haircut. Making this the new trend of 2018, everyone can walk into a salon and get this same new look. While you may be mistaken for a houseplant when visiting friends or having guests over, it does not beat the warm and sunny feeling you’ll have with it.
Rainbows Are In Stock
Finding that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow has always been the unattainable dream, but perhaps we’ve been mistaken all this time. What if a rainbow just came from the Rainbow store in the shopping boulevard? There, right in front of our faces, we have been shown the light, and one of the biggest answers in life was right there under our noses. It has also saved us a lot of trouble for searching for that pot of gold.
If you’re going to go for a personalized license plate, you would expect it to be the car owners name, or perhaps something to do with their job. So, when this guy got ‘1EARUP,’ he undoubtedly faced some ridicule and comments for his choice of words. That was all until this photo proved his decision was a very meaningful one. It was after his beloved pup which has his own unique look of one ear up on most occasions, and he is ever so proud of him.
When you see something like this, you cannot just let it go, and thankfully someone caught the cars in the act. The odds of finding a license plate similar to yours is very rare, so seeing these two side-by-side one another, is certainly shocking. Perhaps they found each other one day, and never looked back. They now go to the grocery store together and take day trips together because, how often can you find someone with the same car manufacturer and similar license plate to yours?
Glitch In The Matrix
This moment would have certainly caused a double take for passengers. Not just one Gandalf lookalike on the city bus which is sure to make anyone swoon, but two! What looks as though clones of the wizard have been made to make that morning commute more enjoyable, it certainly would have made many people’s day. Undoubtedly, commuters would not have minded the lack of seats on this morning ride and been more than pleased for the wizards to ride comfortably.
Representing your favorite brands is nothing new to many consumers, but nothing could have been more perfect than when these guys sat together to bring the Cookie Monster to life. Their clothing branding was probably a sheer coincidence of choice when they decided to meet to watch the wrestling over a beer, but it turns out to be a great decision by both. While they may have entered the bar as two single supporters, they would have left the bar as a dynamic duo.
Mario’s Castle And Luigi’s Mansion
To not know who Mario and Luigi are, means that someone has been living under a rock. As for the majority of the world who are familiar with the Nintendo video game franchise would revel at the sight of these two restaurants situated next to one another. Since they are offering baked goods, pizza, kebabs, and burgers, what more could we possibly ask from this absolute dream in front of our eyes? With some mushrooms on our pizza and no shells in our muffins, we are set to go!
The Smashing Book
When a cockroach comes and disrupts a perfectly restful moment in your own home, you can’t help but think an unwanted creature has invaded your personal space. Your response? To grab the closest book in arm’s length and get the insect before it scurries off and remains unfound for another week. In an ironic twist, what better book to reach for than The Smashing Book? It is full of insightful ways to get those unwanted cockroaches but also seems to be the perfect murder weapon in this scenario.
Most of us go to the grocery store and focus in on the matter at hand – choosing the best produce, checking sale prices, and reading over caloric values of different products. One person, however, managed to catch a glimpse of something very unexpected. It’s not every day that you go to the grocery store and find two perfect strangers dressed exactly alike. But it seems, that’s exactly what happened here.
I Knew She Was Trouble
Taylor Swift went from good girl, pop princess to a girl with a lot of revenge. With her name on everyone’s lips, she has made sure to pop up whenever she can, and in the most unexpected ways. Regardless of whether it was Taylor or Kanye who was right during their spat, Taylor is proving nothing will stop her. You would think she would just shake it off since she must have known he was trouble when he walked in, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
Bird Is The Word
Brother, is that you? Thought this little bird who stumbled across someone’s book. Confused by the uncanny resemblance to his brother who flew away one day and never returned, this bird needed to find out more. As for the young fella reading the book, his bird watching just got a whole lot easier. He did not have to look far and wide to find this particular bird, and he had the privilege of the bird coming straight to him. Guess there was no need for binoculars on his bird quest.
An Ageless Wizard?
Mesut Ozil is up there with one of the best soccer players in the world. His performance on the pitch makes him an in-demand player for many teams and managers, and we are now learning the secret to his success. Ozil has taken the spirit of his biggest doppelganger, Enzo Ferrari, whose looks and features are remarkably similar to the soccer player. The Ferrari factory taught Ozil all about the need for speed, and he has certainly shown how it is done on the pitch.
We all know Jack Nicholson is full of talent, and with an accomplished acting career under his belt, we would not be surprised if we saw him on any movie billboard. However, none of us realized that the Oscar winner was cast to play Jean Valjean in the film adaptation of Les Miserables. Based on his facial expression, we’re sure he is going to bring on an award-winning performance, but perhaps it isn’t quite what we were originally expecting from the musical.
Out For Blood
Just as your drive up to the blood bank to do something special, you feel as though something is not quite right. This time it is not butterflies turning in your stomach before giving blood. Rather, a quick glance to your right and a license plate informing you that a ‘Vampyr’ is in the vicinity proves that your bad feelings were right. They have come to their favorite place on Earth and need to be stopped. It is important that anyone who finds the car owner reports them immediately!
A Mother’s Priorities
Just when we’ve read all the facts on the dangers of underage drinking, we are once again being given discoveries and studies which prove otherwise. Not just for teenagers, but even younger. While we may have recently discussed the advantages and disadvantages to feeding our babies with breast milk or formula, we are now being told that the answer is beer and wine. Forget the dairy products, liquor is proving to be the answer to the ongoing debates, and we can understand why.
Not What She Intended
Graduation is an amazing time in a young person’s life. It’s also such a fond memory for many to look back on. You are young, you’ve just finished studying, and now you have the whole world at your fingertips. This candid photo, however, may not be looked back on with the same excitement. It seems the letters “c” and “l” from the word “class” were flipped up, leaving this young graduate with a less fortunate end-of-year photo.
Perhaps the fight should have started with the feature “Do not try this at home” because not everyone realizes the dangers and injuries caused by such a sport. These cats certainly did not get the memo without it and tried their luck at copying their favorite fighters on TV. While many cat lovers will smile with joy at the adorable nature of these felines embracing one another, we can’t help but think they are replicating their celebrity icons from WWE. May the best man win.
Love And Marriage
Taking your vows in marriage and committing yourself to another person for the rest of your life is a pretty big deal. Many people object to such a union because they believe it limits individual liberty and can allow for control over another person. We have a feeling that one of these firm believers was in control of dealing with this section of the library and wanted to make their point clear, putting both the theme of marriage and slavery in the same section.
All Fun And Games
Teamwork makes the dream work, and if you work together, you can achieve greatness. This is exactly what these two team players, Gross and Butt, set out to achieve out on the football pitch one fine Sunday evening. With their supporters watching in the wings, they were set to give another outstanding performance, just as they do week after week. However, this week something distracted viewers before the game even began. While these two work well together, they should perhaps consider not standing side by side in the future.
The Republican newspaper did not lie with its journalist oath, and we sure love good marketing. Promising to provide news which really hits home, The Republican was once again doing its job by being the news reporters who pride themselves on being the first to reach their audiences home. This time, however, they proved to be a little too eager to committing to their promise, and their truck went straight into someones home. While they do wish to hit home, we do not think they wanted to be too literal.
Everyone can appreciate a good shortcut and will take their chances in saving their precious time. When this truck which clearly read “On the road to success, there are no shortcuts,” we hoped they weren’t right. Shortly after, our hope became a reality, because they were caught trying to go straight under a bridge which was too low to get through. The driver was obviously trying his luck at getting passed rather than going a long way around, so now we may think they have a point.
While having a little nap on the beach for some relaxation time, this man’s eyes couldn’t have been open long enough to see that the mountains behind him were a replica of his figure.
One Fell Swoop
Many street signs have been issued with great meaning behind them. Usually, it is to do with a famous person who left a great mark on the world, or perhaps a close-by monument which brings culture and history to a place. Other times, they are pretty random and do not hold any great meaning at all. When ‘Fell’ was chosen for this suburban street, who knew it would embody its name so well. “Fell Street” was proving it was just as important as any famous or historical name.
