If Victoria's Secret knocked off an Elle MacPherson bra, even we probably wouldn't realize, (until we tried it on, of course). But if Victoria's Secret knocks off Marc Jacobs' Fall 07 runway booties, we notice. Especially when readers email us their own investigative work. We're not really sure who buys shoes from Victoria's Secret in the first place, in fact we kind of forgot they've turned themselves into an entire brand empire hawking everything from lipsticks to teddy bears to teddies, but we'd never guess that the girls who do are looking for the perfect grunge ankle bootie to wear with their military socks and PVC leggings or knit tights and velvet coat like Tao Okamoto. We'd also never guess they'd wait over a year to knock them off, after fashion's taken a turn for the ladylike and even Marc's getting ready to show Spring 09. But we would guess they'd only cost $88 instead of almost $600
