Copy Cat: LV vs. BN

While perusing through the local Barnes & Noble recently I came across one of their new signature reusable totes and it looked startlingly familiar.

After a few moments I placed where I had seen the bag before... no, it wasn't a similar bag from BN's counterpart, Borders Books.

The tote was a dead ringer for the 2005 Louis Vuitton Globe Shopper Cabas MM . Yet another example of how over time all things follow the trickle down process from High End to Main Stream.

While both bags are constructed almost entirely out of canvas, the original LV version retailed at $1280 meanwhile the BN bag costs a mere $29.95. Goes to show that you really are just paying for the name...
Hmm curious. Would you spend over $1K for a canvas bag?!

Happy Thursday All!

Shoes... Shoes: I'll Fly Away

Remember my previous post about the lovely Vivienne Westwood winged platforms? I stumbled across a pair of equally amazing and much more affordable winged ballet flats by Jeremy Scott for Adidas. I have  love affair with ballet flats.. so, why not choose a quirky and unique pair.  Currently on sale for $89.00 at FarFetch (also available in white and black w/polka dots)! Anyone feel like buying me an early birthday present?! =)
What do you think.. would you wear shoes with wings?

Happy Friday!!!
What are your plans for the weekend?
