Cheap Brand? Is it Possible?

Okay, so I'm relatively new to lolita- and VERY new at purchasing it. This is also my first time posting on EGL so please notify me if I messed something up. Thanks!



So I was reading this entry on EGL, and it had something to do with people purchasing knock offs of brand name lolita clothing. The debate was that even if it's cheaper and more people can afford knock offs, is it ethical? Well I agree that it isn't very nice to make knock offs and all, but I saw someone say that they bought brand name dresses and skirts for no more than 60-80 dollars (I assumed USD).

Well, I got very excited and went hunting on second hand shops, Yahoo! Japan, Mbok, and the like. However, I couldn't find anything that cheap! So I was wondering, am I just looking in all the wrong places? Or is this so called cheap brand name shopping impossible?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, it's just I don't have much money but I love brand clothing ^^" I want to do whatever possible. Thanks for your time!
