to faux or not to faux
Interesting post on garance's site recently about faux pieces (of the "inspired by" variety, not fur as suggested by the pic). E and I have had numerous discussion on the merits/demerits of copies and personally I have to admit I'm still undecided. There are definitely things where I think only the real thing will do - bags for the most part and definitely shoes fall into that category. But other times I wonder, especially with clothes since so many retailers do great versions of runway pieces at prices I can actually afford! So what to do? I suspect until I'm a billionaire (or A. is) the dilemma is destined to continue.
