Oh, fashion friends – there is a problem in Nashville and abroad. Regular chicks with regular jobs, carrying imposter, fake, conterfit, luxury bags/purses. I know you seen them, you know, girls like the chicks below (from www.hotghettomess.com), walking around with a $3000 imposter bag – like we believe that mug is real – WHATEV!
Now, I know everyone is not me. Everyone doesn’t study bag design, or visit the LV store just to touch the purses, or read up on the manufacturing of a particular brand like I do. I can detect a fake bag in a minute. Most people don’t even CARE.
Plus, I really don’t have a problem with chicks carrying fake bags, I know it’s something that WILL NOT be stopped. So, since I can’t change the game, I can certainly try to improve the game -It’s all in how you carry your bag.
Here are my TOP tips for carrying a fake:
Do they even make that style of bag? – I have a friend that works for Louis Vuitton – all he does is study LV bags/style/lines. The stories he’s told me about females walking into the LV store demanding that their bag be repaired -WHAT! Chick walking in with a Stephen Sprouse monogram book bag – LV don’t even make that style. So make sure the style you’re faking is the style they are MAKING!
Can you actually afford it? – I’m not gonna lie, I have rocked a fake bag OR two, but I follow this one rule – If I really wanted to, could I afford that bag? If the answer is yes, then I bought the fake. If you work at McDonald’s and come to work rocking a Fendi Spybag (retail $2,250), I’m gonna give you a SUPREME side-eye – GIRL STOP PLAYING! Slanging burgers won’t get you a $2000 bag, now slanging something else might – haha. Stay in you fake bag lane – Coach and Dooney are about as far as you can go, maybe a Kate Spade if you act like you save money.
Does your WARDROBE style match your fake bag style?
Last thoughts – You don’t have to carry a label to show you have style. A purse is just a place to carry things that can’t fit in hands or pockets. ITS NOT A BIG DEAL! If you really want a designer bag try SAVING the money to buy a bag or try one of the sites like Bag, Borrow, or Steal. Work on you personal style before you try throwing a high-end label into your wardrobe. Many who know me, know I am the TARGET queen. I will rock a Target bag like it’s a Burberry Limited Edition. But, because I worked on my personal style so well, people THINK I payed big money for my bag. It works, just try it.
