Hello everybody... So I have 2 semi-big problems. I am here just looking to kinda vent and get some advice. So here goes, Problem A- My very best girlfriend bought the large miroir alma (the one like Paris Hilton) and she carried it EVERYWHERE. I am not super knowledgable about LV and how to tell if something is fake. But she told me her bag was authentic. I mean it had all the right markings and everything and I didn't ask. Then we were at the mall the other day and a sales girl pulled me aside and asked me why my friend was carrying a fake bag. And I told her it wasn't and I almost got in a fight. So when we got to her house I asked, " is your bag real?" And she smiled and said NO!!! I couldn't believe it, she went on to tell me that NONE of the designer bags she has are real!! Like this girl was my idol for her designer collection not just LV but like, Chanel and Coach. She told me that all of her bags look "exactly" like the real ones and she spends good money on them. I swear, I started to cry. She asked me why I was so upset, "it's not like anybody can tell the difference." I told her it's the fact that they are FAKES!! I got really upset and left. Now here's the problem, I don't know if I want to be friends with her anymore. People will see her fakes and think mine are too!!! What should I do Now with that being said here is my second problem.. Who ever said there is a "certain kind of person" that carries LV bags is wrong. I see a lot of you here you look like models and up class ladies and gents. I'm a punk rock kinda girl with piercings and tattoos. What gives someone the right to tell me "I'm too trashy to carry LV?" Seriously? I don't have to look like evrybody else that carries designer labels!? I mean I don't judge anybody especially if they want to carry a designer!! Grrrr... So that's my long rant and rave!!
