Instead of doing work in English Literature class yesterday, I spent the period engaging in an excellent conversation about fashion with my friend Caileigh and two fabulous ballet dancers. We talked of Paris, Rock & Republic and most notably, knockoffs. Apparently there's a kiosk in the local mall that is hawking knockoffs. I thought they just sold bad perfume and pyramid belts but apparently I was wrong. When inquired if he sold any Burberry scarves the small Indian man opened up a secret drawer and revealed "I have a black one and a brown one. And if you come back in a week, I will go on Ebay and get more" . He's also been glimpsed selling faux Chanel purses among other brands. I'm not a fan of knockoffs at all, but this mall man is intriguing me and perhaps I will go to investigate his wares sometime this week.
