i don't think she thinks it is a chanel...she said in her orig. post that it's by alfani & just wanted to make sure it didn't look like a fake chanel.
And what is an "Authentic Chanel knockoff"? Phrased that way, it sounds like you are saying there are "authentic" as in "official" knockoffs, and you can tell they are "authentic" by a full shoulder chain. Which is just silly.
