Cheap JAP speaks her frugal mind on Pierre Hardy's Gap collection and Jimmy Choo for H&M: "Let’s play a little game called What Are You Willing to Pay for Shoes from GAP and/or H&M? I’m willing to pay $50-$75ish, maybe a bit more if the shoes in question are very special (unlikely). Let’s play another little game called What Would You Do if You Saw a $178 pair of platforms or a $345 pair of boots at either store? I’d laugh my ass off." [Cheap JAP]
