I'm soooo mad! This AM, as I was leaving work, I got on the elevator with this...woman...whom I dislike very much for many reasons which I will not go into here. We work together (she in a position quite subordinate to mine), and most likely she has heard me talking about my newly discovered love of LV and my recent acquisitions of same. WELL. She proceeds to mess about very obviously with her bag, which is a FAKE LV. It resembles a monogram pochette bosphore but had a big, cheap-looking wide, ugly seat-belt-type strap with "Louis Vuitton" embroidered on it . !!! I didn't say anything but it really cheesed me off. I know her and she can't afford a real LV. Is this wrong and small-minded of me? I DO NOT buy fakes and frankly I am really starting to despise people who do!! It seems somehow to devalue the real thing, you know? I mean, I know my LVs are real but with so many fakes out there...and some of them quite good ones...it's not like I want everyone staring with admiration and envy at my bags (well...not really ), but on the other hand I certainly don't want people to just assume it's a fake because fakes are so easy to come by. Does this make sense? Why oh why do people make fakes?? Why do other people buy them? This madness must be stopped!!
