Okay, so three posts ago, I talked about my profound dislike for knock-offs!
I had a dear friend visiting from another country, I know she meant well but she so missed the plot on this one; she also forewarned me, she said, " I got you something.... I hope you like it....and if you don't... you better brush up on your acting skills before I come" oh, but she knows me so well, obviously not well enough to know that I detest freaking knock-offs.
She brought me the very knock-off I cannot stand, you know it, the LV monogram that everbody and their mama carries, first off I am not a huge fan of the original monogram and the fact that there are so many "replicas" -yes, that's what they are called now, makes it even worse for me.
Well, I tried to play it off but she knows....oh, yes....she knows!!!! I humoured her for a day, what one would do for a friend but only after I gave her a lesson in the value of buying originals.
This thing was copied down to the stitching and some extra detail was even added to fool the unsuspecting procurer, ohhhh!!!
I love my friend but you know how one says "thanks, you shouldn't have", she really shouldn't have.....
