I had some time to kill before a meeting in Central so I decided to pop into an adorable local boutique called Etoffe. I was planning only to browse, not buy, but as soon as I saw this unique purse I knew it would be coming home with me! (you know how that happens ;) ) 

As you you may know, Asia is well known for their high quality copies of a designer bags.  For some of the best known brands-Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc-the copies are nearly indistinguishable from the real thing, which is one of the reasons I'd be very hesitant to purchase a designer bag online.   Normally, I'd never consider carrying a bag that is such a blatant copy of an Hermes but I found the addition of the Gold Stars ( à  la the Chinese flag) a fun, tongue in cheek reference to the whole issue. :)
