Knockoffs. How about that?

So, are you a bag freak, too? Don't your eyes just lit up every time you see an exclusive bag store? Don't you love checking out the most popular designer bags that all celebrities have? Don't you just love to stare at them for hours? Okay, I might have over exaggerated here a little bit, but I must say that I love the sight of a pretty handbag.

When you are a teenager life is so easy and carefree. Okay, some might argue with that, but life really is much more simple when it comes down to fashion. Of course, you love shopping for new and pretty clothes, bags and shoes. But, unless you are from a rich family, you shop in ordinary stores and do not care much for designer brands. You see a pretty item and you buy it. Some of us stay like that for ever. Some, unfortunately, don’t. We want things that are better, prettier and definitely much more expensive. Handbags are definitely not an exception.

But what if we can’t afford a real designer handbag? That is where the cheap knockoffs come into the picture. Yes, some of them really do look like the real thing. These knockoffs are pretty expensive themselves. The really cheap knockoffs can cost next to nothing, but they do not look anything like the bags in the real designers’ collection. Neither do they last longer than a few months. The quality is truly bad.

I myself have bought a few replicas before and I am never doing that again. First of all, it doesn’t feel great. It might look pretty, but it don’t feel great inside. You know it’s fake, everyone else knows it’s fake, then what is the point of having it? Well, it does look pretty. Although, there are other bags, cheaper non-designer bags that look pretty, too. So is it really the bag that you are after or the reputation, the prestige? With a fake bag I felt like a fake myself. Since then I decided that I either buy cheaper non-designer bags or I save enough money to buy the real thing.

So, if you are like me and you just loooove pretty bags, decide for yourself what or who you want to be. After that it’s all very easy. Sometimes it really is worth to give up buying many different cheaper bags and saving up for the real thing. The real thing will last very long and will bring you joy every single day!
