I do own and carry my bags because *I* love them, but it still is just so frusterating to see people walking down the street with blatantly fake bags. I hate the assumptions that if Im carrying an LV it must be fake, or if it's real, it isn't because I appreciate the bag and the (timeless) history of the brand but because I want people to know what I am carrying. The hate for LV on other message boards astounds me! Does anyone else ever feel this way? I always kind of feel like you're "damned if you do and damned if you don't" if that makes sense.
