Designer Knock Off Purses – Right or Wrong?

You’re a woman and you love to look great and part of looking great is having the right accessories which includes jewelry, shoes, and purses. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all afford a designer handbag? But some of us can’t so the designer knock off purses may be an option. Right or wrong? That depends.

Now wait! Before we start the judgment game about what’s right or wrong. There are different types of designer knock offs. There are the illegal ones which are “exact” copies of the designer bag and break copyright laws and then there are styles that resemble but do not break any laws.

What else is wrong is when a site sells knock offs as originals. In fact that’s more than wrong. That’s fraud! In recent years this has been a big problem especially on some sites like eBay. If you are looking for a true designer bag, whether it’s Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or another designer, make sure you get what you pay for. Here’s how to spot a fake designer bag.

1. Fabric

Designer handbags use top of the line fabric that has no flaws. There will be no fake leather or fake skins. When you buy a designer bag you will always get 100% the real thing every time. If the purse is faux leather or made from an inferior fabric then it will most likely be a knock off.

2. Detailing

A designer bag will have extra stitching, wonderful detailing in the buckles and zippers such as a tiny diamond accent. Knock offs will have no diamond touches or nice detailing, the stitching will be basic and there will be nothing that stands it out from the rest unlike a designer bag which is unique and takes hours to make.

3. Labels

Most designer bags have a custom label or logo on their purses which is their mark of authenticity. You might find it on the zipper, embossed on the bag, or even inside the bag. Know that you are getting what you paid for. Knock offs won’t have proper markings.

4. Follow Your Gut

Follow your instincts. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Designer bags don’t magically fall in price to a fraction of their original price. If a designer purse usually sells for $1000 and you can buy it for $50 there’s something not right. Follow your gut!

Listen To The Celebrities

If it’s good enough to the celebrities it’s real. Celebrities don’t use fake bags so watch what they have in hand. By watching the celebrities you’ll become very good at telling fake from real.

There’s an old saying that there is a time and a place for everything. I guess designer knock of purses could be classified as such. Right or wrong – you’ll have to decide for yourself but what’s most important is being able to tell real from fake and knowing that what you thought you were buying is what you get.
