This is so funny I thought I share the story with you all. For a very long time I have always loved purses. My husband understood and agreed to my obsession before we were married LOL. So my boys (10 yrs and 14 yrs old) are constently present whenever I discuss how a purse looks, leathers, styles, designers, etc... Actually my oldest son has a taste for finer things (LV wallet, agenda, belt, ipod holder, messenger bag, 2 H belt). You really dont expect that sort of taste from him when you look at him (very tall athletic plays football and rides motorcycles with his daddy). My youngest doesnt have any designer leather goods yet...but he has a taste for fine clothes and shoes LOL. Anyhoo we were at the Mall to shop and get something to eat. As we sat down at the food court my oldest son tells me " Mom is that a fake???" I take a look around and low and behold he spotted a fake Birkin!!! I NEVER seen one! It was plastic looking, NO feet, the handles were WAY too long, and the color was a pepto pink!!! The Hermes stamp was soooo big. PLUS the inside was BLACK material. I was staring so hard she finally turned around. I didnt know I was doing that, I felt so bad. I seriously didnt want to affend her. Well we left the food court and headed toward Neiman Marcus and an older woman was coming out and she had a beautiful Kelly. My son said "Is that a fake? Wait nevermind its real.." even before I could say anything!LOL I had to stop and look at him..."Son, how did you know?" He rolled his eyes and told me "Mom how could we not know this stuff...your always talking about it." I laughed so hard. My poor babies. I had to tell them not to worry about that sort of stuff right now, they have too much stuff on their plates already just growing up.
