The one perk (or disadvantage for my wallet) in working for Donna Karan on 7th Avenue is that I’m a block away from the brand new four floor Forever 21 stocked with new merchandise every day. Walking through this amazing store not only made me feel like a kid in a candy store, but it also made me realize that most of the pieces I found are direct copies of expensive pieces that make a dent in our pockets. See a difference in these pieces? Is it moral to buy these pieces? What are your thoughts?
