I need some advice as to protocal with confronting a fake... Last night I was out with my boyfriend and another guy-friend (neither of whom know anything about purses or designers) and across our table at the bar was a chick with two of her girl friends and she was wearing the same bag I was wearing, but clearly a fake! I was offended to say the least. As we left, I walked over to her, held up my real bag, and said "get the real thing and stop desecrating the [designer] name." So, I only own one designer bag: THIS designer bag. I have lots of designer shoes, but only one bag. Maybe I'm taking this too personally b/c of how much I love that bag, but I'm new to this and I need some guidance. It's also my understanding that the ppl who make fakes, usually make them under less than tolerable standards for the "employees," making my belief that you should always support the authentic designers for thier artistic designs, but also for the labour involved in making them. But please help. Tell me your stories and suggestions. Was I too harsh, or diplomatic enough? Am I being catty and self righteous?
