Hi-Low concept

I am a believer in finding good replicas of a certain trend, but lately I've been getting annoyed at how fast the cheap stores can put out a copy of the real designer item. It seems like they cancel each other out and magically a trend vanishes way before it even blossomed. Case in point: Short Shorts with rolled up hems; before the season even began there were the most beautiful See by Chloe khaki shorts and then the that week Forever 21 had the SAME style short! Same with those patent cork platforms Christian Louboutin put out that were absolutely edible, the next thing you know Steve Madden had the same pair. It is a positive and negative because those who love fashion can afford it now, but what is to separate the true fashionistas from the average mall shopper? Just a thought.
