When you see girls carrying designer bags (Coach, Kate Spade, Vera Bradley, etc.), do you assume they're real, or knock-offs?

I actually don't give a flying f*ck if it's real or imitation. I have other more important things in my mind than sh*t like this.

Well here, it's a big deal for some people to buy the knock-offs for some reason.
I had heard SO many women talking about going fake purse-shopping that it just sort of stuck with me.

I wouldn't be able to tell real from fake if it came down to it, tbh, but I always hope they're fake. Otherwise, that person just spent hundreds of dollars on a BAG, which is idiotic.

Does it really matter? all handbags do the same thing, hold stuff lol
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 6:24:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Unless it's a really obvious knockoff, I doubt I'd notice or care.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 6:32:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
depends on the girl. if it's some college brat with bleached hair, sweatpants and a huge purse with ostentatious branding, it's probably fake. if it's a well dressed girl and the label isn't the first thing you notice, and the bag looks well made, who knows? could be the real thing!

I assume it's fake if it's Louis Vuitton because those purses are ridiculous. And the fakes are pretty good.

I assume they're real if they're cheaper, i.e. Coach, Vera Bradley.

Why is it a big deal? Most Greeks here even if they don't have the money for it they buy the brand stuff anyway....They don't like imitations although lately they've been coming around and actually buy good cheap clothing etc.

Because there are some people who like to give off the appearance of affluence even if they don't really have the money.

They want to LOOK like hot sh*t with their "designer" bags, but they can't afford the real ones, so they go fake-shopping.

It's seriously a thing that a lot of women here do, for some reason.

I don't get it...a purse is something to carry your sh*t. And most of the designer ones aren't even cute anyway tbh - every time I see a Vera Bradley, I want to puke.

I'd never heard of Vera Bradley before, so I googled it. Looks like something a little old lady in Boca Raton would bring to her bridge club.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 7:38:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't know a designer bag if it hit me in the nose, so I make no assumptions about the purse.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 12/3/08 - 7:45:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
the only designer bags i notice are these chanel ones:


i used to want one, but i see them everywhere. it seems like every girl my age has one. i assume they are all fake, because even the replicas are around 200$.

i just assume theyre fake
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/08 - 11:52:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can usually tell the difference.
I don't get why people buy fakes. You don't get quality that way. I'd rather buy a genuine mid price brand, like Coach, than pay the same price for some made in China crap that only looks like Prada from a distance.

I can tell a fake bag if I get close to it, if I have one of the designer's bag. But also if they get out of a Ford Taurus wearing Wrangler jeans and those big foam platform flip flops and look beat up I'm going to think it's a fake until I can see for sure.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/08 - 7:47:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't put thought into stuff like that.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/08 - 7:50:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I assume they're real bags. I wouldn't know whether they're "designer" bags or not, even if I saw a label.

I wouldn't judge that way. I've known many a girl who had a old, beat up car and wore casual clothes, but spent tons of money on purses and jewels.

It depends on the person carrying the bag, tbh.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/08 - 10:11:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Doesn't matter. They are way more likely to mugged like that.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/08 - 10:21:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't really care..=| or notice..or pay attention.

Honestly, the only people I ever see carrying "designer' bags are the girls at my school with rich mommies and daddies. With that being said, I could assume that they're real.

I have a pink one, my dad bought it in Chinatown for $20.

Vera Bradley bags are very affordable. I think the most expensive one is under 100. They are all I carry, and I have 12 all in different patterns. I've never paid over 25 for one though, as my baby sis works in a resale shop, and she holds all of them for me. I love that they're washable, durable, and cute. Oh, and it's easy to tell a real Vera from a Dollar General knockoff. Now, I have one Dooney & Bourke, and I think it's the ugliest thing ever, but it was a Christmas present from Grandma. I don't give a rats butt about any designer bags except for my Vera's.

Oh, I tend to assume they're real because my BFF works at the drugstore here that sells VB, D&B, Chanel... and she says they can hardly keep them in stock.

I tend to assume preteens with Louis Vuitton bags have fakes. Or those Chanel bags that someone posted earlier.

But Dooney and Bourke, Coach or especially Vera Bradley, no. Vera Bradley isn't that expensive. D and B is on the very low end of designer bags. Coach is on the lowish end too and both my Coach bags have lasted forever.

I own a real Louis Vuitton and can tell a real from a fake. Almost every one I see being carried around is fake.

Because I'm youngish and do go around in my flipflops and such, I'd say it's safe to say most people who see me would assume my bag is fake, too.
