Do you buy replica bags?

Like Tree21Likes

A recent thread on a Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Trevi for sale (against the rules, btw) got me thinking about replica bags and their popularity. It was very obvious to me that the bag in question was a fake. Have you ever bought or do you buy replica bags?

If so, why? If not, why not?

My mother has closets full of of the real stuff (and I don't mean $500 Coaches...I mean $1500 LV, $2500 Chanel, $5000 Hermes, etc.)

And she has a few $20 fakes from Chinatown scattered in. And she is just as pleased w/ the fakes as she is w/ the real stuff...will tell you in a second if it's fake.

She might buy the fake bc authentic Birkins aren't made in periwinkle blue or whatever and she just happened to need a bag in that shade and saw a fake in that color as she was walking down the street.

People have all sorts of different motivations for buying stuff.

She's the same way w/ real and fake designer watches.

I don't buy fake designer purses. I don't buy authentic ones either. I am just not interested in anything "designer". I feel like if something is sold on a mass scale as designer, it's not very stylish. Not to me anyway. Designer stuff makes me feel like a sheep. A foolish sheep.

I love luxury. I buy all sorts of luxury items for myself. I'd be more apt to buy a custom designed (by me) leather bag than I would buy one that designed by a designer. I can get a bag made to my exact specifications, that will fit my lifestyle perfectly, using top quality leather goods and fittings, for much less than a designer bag. And I'm not providing free advertising for any multi-billion-dollar corporate conglomerate.

If I like it, I buy it. I'm not too into "designer" items. Even the real ones look tacky and too flashy. Gaudy. Just... No. BUT if I see a knock off that I actually like, I'll drop 10 on it.
