I thought maybe here I could get a little understanding from my fellow coachies. Last night I hosted a family birthday dinner. My brother shows up with his live in girlfriend sporting a fake chocolate sig Carly. It is a replica of my real chocolate sig Carly. My brother proceeds to announce to all present how stupid I am for spending $500 for a coach bag when his girlfriend can get coach bags for $40. I proceed to tell him It's not real and he says yes it is it says coach on it. I was so peeved. It was so obvious it was fake. The plastic handles and bright white stitching. I'm stickikng with all leather from now on. Thanks for letting me vent.
