my DIRTY little secret

  1. Before 2003 I wasn't aware of what Louis Vuitton was. I like in a small town in Louisiana, which only has one LV store @ Saks. I've heard references being made to Louis Vuitton before. Well I was dating a guy named Benjamin. He like a couple hours away from me && went on a lot of business trips. I used to worry about what he was doing when he was gone. One time he came home from Houston with a Purse for me. I was EXCITED. It was my first Louis Vuitton. I carried it around like it was a prize. I even took it out to Bouron Street one night to see my Friend preform in a drag show @ one of the gay bars. I had a couple people ask me if it was fake, but when they opened it up && saw the red lining they took back their remarks && appoligezed. Well Benjamin && I broke up not long after that. It was a rough break-up so I decided that I didn't want to hold on to our past. So I made an e-bay account && attempted to sell my Louis Vuitton online. Well to my suprise I got some hateful messages about selling a fake.

    Come to find out the purse was indeed fake. I was devistated && wanted to burn it. But for some ODD reason I kept it. I call it my DIRTY secret because I know how much fakes are hated. && the thought of me owning one upset me completely. But it's not like I bought it or knew any better. I should have known when the zipper broke after 4 months.

    I'm proud to say that my current boyfriend bought me a real one, which you have all seen. I'm so in love with him && my Mini Lin. So.....I took some pictures of my old purse before I threw it away. I thought u all might want to see thing DIRTY secret of mine.....


    I'm soo worried that everyone will think badly of me know.....oh my goodness.
    I just had to get this off of my one knows it was a fake but Ya'll...
