I'm not being snide - it's true. Ashlee Simpson was criticized in 2006 for carrying the bag and the folks on the purseblog posted 4 years ago how dated this bag is. Jessicasimpson has made some bolds statements to others - like if you buy a pre-loved LV bag, you should stick with guess, so I guessing she has thick skin and take some real opinions on high fashion. Whether the spy bag and its place as a classic versus passé is rather common fonder for discussion. I'm on the dated fence and certainly hope that LV does not rip off a bag that has already had it's day in the sun. That would signal the end of LV as we know it - it is a fashion house, not a sad rip off factory.
