OK girls, need your opinion.... Me and the DH went to dinner last night with his best friend Eric and Eric's new girlfriend! We met at the restarant near our house. I notice her Carly and comment on it... "Nice Bag". She says "thanks" and looks at mine... She said oohh an Ali, where did you get that?" I said at the outlet in AC, New Jersey she said can I see it I said sure. She said it's really light (its signature) I said yea thats why I picked the factory version, it's lightweight and it was 50 % off plus 20% off so I got it for like $150.00. She said, Oh, I won't buy the factory bags because it's just like buying a fake! WHAT!?!?!?! I said no it's not, Coach makes them in the same place they make there other bags. So we finish dinner and she proceeds to pull out her fake LV wallet! By the time we left I was dizzy! My husband said to me in the car... I don't think she 's gonna last and I said why, he said because Eric likes them smarter than that...I said ME Too!!! Do you think factory bags are the same as carrying a fake? Just want your opinions!
