I don't mean replicas, but let me give an example. I believe that Jessica Simpson put out her own line of shoes with red bottoms, and lots of people would say OH they look JUST like CLs. Also, the people that say "oh they have the same thing at Target, it looks just like it". Are these people blind? Perhaps some people have an eye for things...and others don't... I realize that you are paying in part for the name brand, but you are also paying for extraordinary quality. I guess that's what divides us here at the Purse Forum from the rest of the world.
