Call me whatever you want but I am not an advocate for the fakeage. I don’t do fake handbags or knockoff shoes et al. If I can’t wear the real thing I don’t wear or buy it at all. When I ran across this article on Twitter I had to cheer. I mean, when I’m dead and gone I want my wardrobe to be worth something to someone. I don’t want the value of it to be brought down by the constant fakery out there. Seriously.
Here are some diehard resources on how to tell if your handbag or those red bottoms (I hate that term though) are fake.
