While waiting in line a little while ago I got a compliment for my small Chanel flap bag. I was quite flattered and happy to share what I know about this bag with the woman. Of course can just you imagine my surprise and exasperation when she then asks if the bag is a fake. I must have looked at her with disdain in my eyes because she immediately tries to explain herself and share with me how much fake bags cost nowadays. At that point, I just didn't want to speak to her anymore. I mean how rude to just ask a complete stranger if the bag is fake. Even if it is fake, why will I divulge that information to a complete stranger, right?
While visiting various places in my travel, I have encountered counterfeit bags at such discounted price I must say can be quite tempting. But, I usually stop myself because I know these bags are fake myself even if no one else knows it. And, these designs are intellectual properties. It's wrong to just copy and paste someone's work. Besides, if I own a brand, I will be so unhappy to see counterfeits. So let me ask you, do you fake it or only the real thing will do?
