Mixing brand and replicas?

Hoping this isn't too much of a stupid question: How do you feel about mixing replicas with brand items of the original set?
Also, how do you feel about mixing several brand logos in one outfit? Not just mixing brand, but really obvious logos, like say a AP tote and parasol with that BABY dress that has like 4 rows of 'BABY THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT' around the skirt.

More people seem to wear replica shoes than the original with their brand, but I've also heard about people (mostly in stories about japanese lolis) feeling guilty when they find themselves buying things outside thier favorite brand. Is this generally a japanese thing, or are there people around here that feel the same way?

I ask because I really like AP's Melody Doll stuff in black + white, but I'm a little bit too big in the bust to fit it, so I was thinking about matching the Bodyline replica with the AP beret. Would people care, or just the "raawr replicas are bad" crowd?

(Those aren't my photos btw, but I can't seem to find stock of either items in those colorways. Also, does anyone happen to know how much that beret goes for 2nd hand? The only sales I can find are old and have been deleted.)
