I love this bag SO much and I spent SOOO long waiting for one that was actually authentic (and basically brand new!) to show up on eBay to get a deal, save a couple hundred. I never wear it and I got it in mid July. The allure of this bag for me has been tainted by so many fakes of it. I feel so ashamed for feeling this way! Anyone else feel this way about the large chain horsebit hobo, or another Gucci bag that is heavily faked? I couldn't tell you why I care but I do! I wish I didn't, I still spent a ton of money on this bag that I do still love but that I never wear. I can't seem to be able to carry it with confidence!
