The other day my husband and I went out with his business partner and his wife. She had (what I think is) a 30cm black clemence Birkin with PHW. The thing is, she has a history of getting fake bags... Every time I see her, she has a new bag, that she admits she ordered from a replica site online. They are various brands such as Tod's, Gucci, etc... mostly "showy" bags. We talk about clothes and bags whenever we see eachother, but we aren't "close" enough for me to come right out and ask if this "Birkin" is a fake. She carries it around like it's real, and even said "Dave just bought me a Birkin"! The thing is, they have all the money they could want to buy the real thing (she just likes to buy fake so she can have a lot more bags for her money). I just highly doubt he was able to procure one (he's not that nice of a guy just to go out and buy a bag like that). He even tells my husband that he hates her...so why would he buy her a REAL Birkin? I have talked with her about Hermes before and how I appreciate their bags (but I don't have a Birkin yet), and I even talked with her about the Birkin... I just can't figure out if she's doing this to spite me, or just because she wants the status (she has low self esteem anyway). How can I figure out if it's fake or not? What would you suspect if this was something you were trying to figure out?
