i wish the internet didn't lie..







here's a fun game: search taobao.com and see how many obvious fakes/incorrectly labelled things you can find.



for those not living in china/with knowledge of chinese websites, taobao is like a chinese ebay.



and one day I thought I'd put Rodarte into the search bar.



Behold:





Are these not in fact the Christian Louboutin for Rodarte (or at least a copy that vaguely resembles the original) spiky beglittered beyond high heels?

And are they not priced at, not joking, MOST EXPENSIVE PAIR 650 KUAI.

that's...they can't be real. why does the internet TAUNT poor people with promises of cheap designer labels...?!
Well, at least in China there's always a copy of everything. Even runway shoes made for a not exactly mainstream (at least in Beijing) brand.
Adieu,
Hannah
