Real life experience - The REAL and the FAKE Okay...So I'm in a training session today with a woman that felt the need to carry her LV with her ALL DAY in the facility. Mind you, our facility has hidden cameras and people would know if someone lifted it. I had never seen another authentic LV where I work so when I saw this woman's authentic Speedy 30, I immediately thought it was mines. I said...out loud, "I didn't realize I brought my bag with me". She immediately said, "that's MY bag". I laughed it off. Upon further inspection, I realized that it was indeed a 30 (I have a 25) and the handles were NASTY! I asked her when she got hers and told her that I was a collector. She responded that she's had hers her about a year. I thought to myself...only a YEAR and the handles are just NASTY! My Speedy 25 handles are in GREAT shape .thanks to the PF Meanwhile, my Black Epi Petit Noe was safely under my desk...2 floors up THEN, I spotted a FAKE from some other women! It was a very, VERY bag fake! I saw her eyeballing the other womans real Speedy and I just laughed. The fake had that imposed patina bad, just BAD! To add insult to injury, we have a person at my job that sells knock-offs. She saw me coming in carrying my PH and said, I sell those! Let me know what you need. I told her Sorry, but I dont buy knock-offs. She had the audacity to tell me that the bags she sells are REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:censor: :censor: I cant wait until tomorrow to see whats next.
