Chloe electric blue chunky ribbed wool sweater
This sweater is described as electric blue but I don’t know if that’s just the seller taking artistic license because on my screen it looks more of a baby blue or stronger shade of powder blue.

Speaking of Stella McCartney→I have to admit a curiosity about something here. It’s probably evidence of my ignorance to ask this but, why are Stella McCartney’s faux leather items so expensive? I mean, okay I do get it–it’s Stella McCartney; but is it supposed to be so blatantly out there that it’s all about the name? I love that Stella McCartney stands for something higher and does not compromise her convictions. She seems pretty awesome and I love her stuff. I can’t wait until I am in a position to buy a few of her blazers; but I’m not sure I would be willing to spend over a thousand dollars on a handbag that is 100% polyurethane when other bags that are 100% PU get treated like they are worthless trash for lack of a high end designer name attached to their labels.
I’m not suggesting Stella McCartney’s faux leather goods aren’t worth their money. I’m just wondering if there is another reason they are priced so highly or if it’s really just plainly and simply the name that is attached. They are still gorgeous. I love the Falabella bag; and I appreciate the significance of Stella’s message. I guess that should be really all that matters. Maybe it’s a good way to try to set an example to other designers that they can still sell their bags at the same high prices without using real leather.
