"Potato Sack Fashion".

While im getting tired of hearing the word "recession" everywhere, I read an interesting article in the New York Times (fashion section) talking about designers who opted for cheap materials such as Burlap (potato sacks anyone?) to create bags, dresses, and shoes. And while some may think that since it is a recession, and the designers are using cheaper materials, that prices will be at a lower point? Well it is far from that! Im all for splurging on quality, but a burlap miumiu dress? Come on!

And do you think those burlap items will cost any cheaper than if they used luxe items? I highly doubt it!

Those designers are just doing old fashioned propaganda.

i wouldn't splurge on a potato sack, although these stuff look great! the dress is cute and doesn't look like its burlap
