Do you think it is possible to go to any retailer, online or offline, and find any bag at any price that cannot be said to be Inspired by one designer or other, especially ones who have been fortunate to have one or more of their creations become "hits," (or "its")? How about shoes? Dresses? Bras? Are there any that are not Inspired by somedesigner or somedesign that achieved such great success in the marketplace that consumers demanded "one that looks like (insert wildly poplular garment or accessory here)? This post was actually inspired by the knowledge of the people here. I have two bags, one chocolate brown, one red, each one purchased for $12.99 at an "outlet" style store called The Burlington Coat Factory. I just bought them because I liked them, they were colors I needed, and they were being sold at a Poor Person-friendly price. While I do have 3 little bags that are arrogantly proud to be Distinguished NotChanel Representatives of the Inspired Pride Movement (all bought on eBay, from different vendors, all for under $20, and none misrepresented or sold with claims to be anything but "designer look" or "designer inspired) it really never occurred to me that these two from the Burlington Coat Factory had been inspired by anything except the desire of the Dolce Vita Company (that's what was on the tag) to sell inexpensive bags in popular colors. After looking around here, however, I discovered that both bags are indeed Inspired by a popular designer. And the more I have availed myself of the expertise here, the more I began to wonder: Is there anything that we buy, especially fashion items, that is NOT Inspired? Is anything Truly UN-Inspired? What do you think?
