Buying Fake Designer Goods Makes You Look Like An Idiot

I can’t count how many times I’ve seen some random toting fake Louis Vuitton, Burberry or other luxury brand bags.

Trust me on this: you look like an idiot.

Luxury brands signify a luxurious lifestyle. If you’re hauling around a Christian Dior lookalike while wearing a scruffy outfit that does not match the level of the bag, you’re not accomplishing anything.

The thing is, you’re paying these people good money to look a fool.  Anyone you would be attempting to impress will see right through the cheaply manufactured façade, so why even bother?

Either way, it’s always wrong to support a black market; so next time you’re on vacation (or anywhere else for that matter), tell those replica hawkers you’ll take a pass.

paying $1500 + for a purse makes you look like a bigger idiot. Especially since all the things you tell us to look for are stitching details, interior pockets, etc… I happen to agree with you, though, that faking luxury is foolish, but if they’re so easy to spot, why do we all need so many “how to spot a fake” guidelines??

Let’s face it, people aren’t that smart.

Wearing a fake purse is gross, really you look retarted. If you can’t afford the real thing then your better off buying something that you can afford like a guess purse or something. People make me sick. SICK! I would never be caught dead with a fake purse. Also, 1500 isnt that bad for a purse, I think its rather resonable, especially for a Louis Vuitton.

Well well well… a lot of people try to make themselves look incredibly idiotic in a lot of ways than one… and I agree to that comment above… if you can’t afford one, why settle with a fake item… it doesn’t make you less of a human being to be wearing dignified real but cheaper ones… fashion is not about faking it, it’s about style, color coordination and poise…

Darn! I remember a girl walking by the mall with a gucci monogram shoes, fendi monogram skirt and a louis vuitton monogram bag… DISASTER! It’s the real thing though…but it spelled disaster right at the very moment she stepped out of the car… Really! All those monograms on you don’t spell “style… even designers themselves don’t do that in their runway shows…common sense before bragging…LOLS!
