i've been wondering and i need you guys' opinions about this. when somebody asks you what brand your bag is, do you tell them it's Balenciaga? I've gotten a few compliments on my bbag the past 2 weeks that I've had it (my very first one, in Truffle) and there was one (coworker) that asked what brand it is, so I told her, now she's on a quest to get one for herself. it's quite amazing how a bbag can *shine* the way it does even without the logos!! anyways, i guess all i'm saying is that in general, i don't mind telling people the brand if they ask, but there are certain people around me that like to copy for the purpose of competing, you know? and i dont want to let those people know the brand i'm carrying. do you guys go through this too? part of me thinks i'm being selfish, but then again, i can't stand it when somebody buys these nice things in order to be 'better' than others. i hope that made some sense....sorry if i couldn't explain it better. i would appreciate your thoughts..... sorry so lengthy!!
