I have mixed feelings about copying popular high end styles. Whether it is an exact copy or an "inspired version", its still somebody else's idea. As a software engineer, I totally get patent infringement and intellectual property rights. Believe me, I do.

But on the other hand, it does make high end styles available to those of us without Ms. Miller's deep pockets or not wanting to have to wear real leather.

Tell me dear reader, am I only one that feels this way? Is there a happy medium in between?
