My best friend got a fake black Spy from her mom for Christmas. The "leather" is obviously plastic, and the handles are squishy, and there's no engravement of "Fendi" on the metal spy part on the front. I love designer purses... and I tried explaining to her what was so bad about having a fake. But alas.... I couldn't really think of what to say! So what is so bad about fakes? She argued that only people who have weird obsessions with bags would know. She bought hers here: Amazon.com: Black Fendi Inspired Faux Leather Spy Bag: Apparel. She says no one who isn't obsessed with bags will think it's fake. So is it an obvious fake, or a good one? Ummm so I'm not trying to sound rude or mean here lol. You're probably thinking I"m really mean to my friend... but honestly she and I always are brutally honest to one another.
