Louis Vuitton's version of cheap chic

Fashion kills me sometimes.

You guys have seen these bags before, right?

Apparently, Marc Jacobs also found inspiration for Louis Vuitton's spring-summer '07 ready-to-wear collection from these popular shopping bags commonly found on the streets of Chinatown. Or the dollar store. Or your local laundromat, whatever. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE these bags. But, come on now:

Granted, the tote above is hand-woven leather. But chile, please. If I'm going to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on an LV purse (I'm more of a Gucci fan anyway, but I digress), I want it to look like it costs hundreds or thousands of dollars. OQUAY?

Plus, I'd much rather keep it real and buy these bags from the dollar store, thanks.

(Props to I am Fashion for the link.)

As much as I love handbags, I will have to pass on this one.
