Actually my boss and I have talked many times about Real Vs. Fake. No matter what I say she still rather carry a gross fake. She thinks because she drives a brand new Mercedes R350 and wears a very large real diamond wedding ring and will eat dinner at a place that cost her over $200 per couple that people assume it is real.

What I don't understand she pays a lot of money for these fake bags and they fall apart immediately. I keep trying to convince her to spend a little more for something that will last many years if not forever. But she insists that she rather buy fakes. She is proud of them. I have gone into the whole sweat shop, illegal issues and her comment is at least they have some work it is better than no work.

She bought a fake LV rabbit fur purse (which is wrong on so many levels) She paid over $500 for this thing. And within 2 months it was unusable. And she was like but if I bought the real one it is over $1000.

I rather buy what I can afford as long as it is real. I just recently got into buying LV and Gucci. I would love to get some Chanel and Hermes but right now I can't afford it so I am sticking to want I can afford.

"Accidentally" spill white-out or coffee or something on it and then offer to take her shopping for a new one. :nuts:

Maybe you could give her a real Coach for Bosses' Day and make a good impression! Hey, if you get a raise/promotion/bonus out of it then it pays off! I am lucky the girls I work with loooove Coach and buy only the real deal! We share our purse purchases and they come see what I have that's new...the only bad thing is I cannot hide the amount of money I spend or have spent because they know how much they cost and when the bags came out. I always have to make up excuses, "Ï had a gift card," ""It was a gift," "I exchanged one of my other bags," "Got it on Ebay," "Sold an old one on Ebay to get the money..."

^^ I was certainly trying to cause I didn't want to start a conversation about it. Luckily, the bags we were positioned behind the laptop we were training on so that I tried to make it look like I was staring at the computer screen as opposed to comparing the bags.
:roflmfao: That's something I would do. Stare at the bags and pretend I was looking at the screen. My boss use to carry a fake and once she seen all of mine she began getting the real deal. I think she has 5 bags now, all thanks to me.

My boss carries fakes too. She went to China a few years ago and came back with fake everything-shoes, bags, coats-everything! From all different designers. She bragged and bragged and bragged how much money she saved.

It kills me, but what can you do (besides laugh behind her back!)?
