What about hand-me-downs?

They're not taken into account; neither are constrained budgets generally. One must concede, though, that the context is a rarefied one, and the comment is entertaining. As reported in the November Vogue, Diana Vreeland is alleged to have remarked to a companion at a gala evening event: "I want you to think for a minute about the fact that every person in this room walked into a store where other things were available and CHOSE what he's wearing right now." In the fall fashion mags, Nordstrom is running shorter or longer ad segments featuring fashion illustrations by Ruben Toledo. Nobody that I've noticed has remarked on the resemblance to Bratz dolls; the only detail lacking is that the feet in the ads are not quite large enough to meet Bratz standards.
