Well, as you know my BH arrived yesterday. Well, I took my BH to the Grocery store this evening and I was walking thru the aisles and I saw this girl with the LV petite bucket -FAKE, man I should of taken photos of this thing - the purse was in such horrid conditions - it was awful, the vinyl faux-leather straps were shall I say shaffing? So many cracks in the vinyl, this thing was so worn....And here I was posting questions about the patina and wondering if b/c the leather is so light would people think my BH was fake....man, walking down the asile past that purse ~ man, I know that imposter was just calling to be put to rest! HA!HA! Sad thing was the faux-leather had NO patina so it was light and shaffing! UGH!!!! Man, if I only had a camera! HA!HA! I should start doing tht taking photos of imposters, HEE! HEE!
