And it turns out to be fake? Argh that happened to me today. When I see Louis vuitton I always give benefit of the doubt unless it's blatantly fake. The first sign today should have been that this woman had brought vachetta to the swimming pool for her baby's lesson. Second sign was the fake looking patina but I didn't inspect it before commenting. I only got a 2 second glance at it before I said 'I love your bag!' and she said thanks. We are in the same lesson so thought I'd make small talk while we were getting our baby's ready so told I collect them myself and she laughed and said oh no, hers is a "bali special". I don't know what pissed me off more, the fact it was fake or her laughing about it... Then going on to say real ones are $2500, who in their right mind would pay that? (after I already said I have a collection!) And then her mum piped in saying "especially when you thought it was real anyway!" I was seething on the inside lol. I know fakes are everywhere, and that I shouldn't care what others carry but God damn the attitude they carry with it is appalling. If you can't afford, or don't want to pay the money for LV, cool! Then don't... But don't try and look like you're carrying one anyway. And then to, in a way, brag that its fake, was equally weird! Anway, rant over lol and lesson learnt. Have you ever had similar thing happen?
