You're probably going to come across this question many times. If you have access to the real stuff, why would you buy a fake?
It's simple. Do you know how much a Prada bag costs? We're talking about over $5,000 per bag. I'm not even talking about Hermes or upper-end Louis Vuitton.
The difference between a replica bag and the real thing can be as high as five figures. Wouldn't you rather have some money left over? Wouldn't you rather have some cash left over for accessories or the rest of your wardrobe?
The answer shouldn't be a no-brainer. The excellent high-quality quality replicas are that you get status, recognition, and people would see that you have class and sophistication. This is not something that you see ordinarily, especially with the higher end copies.
I view myself as a frugal yet sophisticated fashion consumer. That means I look for the very best, but I always look for low-cost alternatives.
I'm always up to date with fashion trendsetters like Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner. And my friends are also very fashion conscious.
As you can well imagine, hanging out with such sophisticated people (who often go on global travel tours at the drop of a hat) and showing up with a fake bag or purse would be social suicide.
To say that I am straddling two uneasy worlds would be an understatement indeed. And that's why I'm convinced that I'm in a unique position to advice you on this very tricky proposition.
