A reader sent us an outraged email this weekend. She's shocked and appalled at these pretty ballsy Stella McCartney knock-offs. The mesh basket sandals are this season's hit and Bebe made sure their imitation hit floors in time for summer. They've included three separate sections of mesh and the elastic heel band (which actually looks painfully uncomfortable in patent leather). And they've matched the heel height at 4 1/2 inches, placing both on angular platforms. What's different? Bebe thought they'd one up Stella and make their platform gold, which takes the shoe from sexy to tacky (a word we never use, but deem necessary on this occasion) in half a step. -- CARSON GRIFFITH
