Reader Weigh In: Real vs. Replica

I know I'm not the only one that has champagne taste on a TAP WATER budget. But, am I the only one that doesn't mind a nice replica when the opportunity arises? I'm not talking about your average bootleg from the backroom of shady boutique. I'm talking quality replicas, made with quality materials and stood behind by decent sales people.

Everyone isn't able to call of their favorite Chanel or Birkin sales rep and have them hold the latest handbag to hit the market. These bags retail from $5,000 to $20,000! As my bestie would say, "GET YO LIIIIFE!!!"



But if you stumbled upon a credible seller, with quality products...and new you weren't doing anything illegal...would you spring for these coveted handbags if they were available at a price like $200-$300???

What about those infamous Christian Louboutins??? Would you spring for them if they were made to fit into your price range???

Personally, I live for a deal, so if I can get quality materials in high-fashion styles, I'm all over it!, But I want to know how you feel about it, so I need you guys to weigh in on this. How do you feel about real vs. replica. Would you fake it til you make it? Do tell!

  1. Hmmmm... That's hard. See back in the day I would hit Canal street in NYC and rack up. Now as a mother I often wonder if the claims that children are forced to work in the factories that produce these goods so I stay away. CNBC did a special not too long ago about counterfeit goods. It was CRAZY.. I had no idea

    1. So did I! I felt like it was the "in" thing to do when visiting NYC. I think I'll just stick with the "look-a-likes" that show up in Target, H&M, etc. They're more of my price range anyway.
