The Same Game: Hervé Léger

This weekend, we received a very excited phone call from our dear friend, Kim Chee. She told us how she was out one night and spotted a friend wearing the same Hervé Léger bondage skirt.

This would normally be unremarkable except that her friend was not wearing the $600 bondage silhouette but rather, gasp, a designer impostor.The doppelganger skirt was not Hervé Léger but rather a $148 BCBG Max Azria skirt. Hervé Léger happens to be designed by Max Azria, as well.

Could the two skirts really be identical? Well, yes and no. The $600 version has a zipper while the less expensive skirt has an elastic waist band. Even as we are usually sticklers for quality and craftsmanship we would pass on the $452 zipper and in this case hit the local mall for the BCBG version.

Take a guess which skirt is Hervé Léger. No cheating!

Great coverage. However, we must spell it "waist" and not waste--unless you are calling the skirt garbage!

I would guess that the second skirt is the more expensive but only because i like the shoes better.
