Well, I have to tell you something that’s been on my mind for a while now… I purchased a fake YSL camera bag! Now, before you start judging me for this, just hear me out. Let me start by saying there was something about this bag that I just couldn’t ignore. I mean it was gorgeous! It had that classic YSL gold emblem amongst the soft calf leather, and a beautiful trim of chain. It just screamed luxury and class, and I couldn’t resist.
So here I am with this fake bags YSL camera bag, and I am determined to make it work. I pair it with my classic black blazer and a white tank, and I feel like the chicest girl ever! Granted, it may not be a genuine article, but it does a damn good job of looking real. I can tell that people are kinda doing a double-take when I pass them by and my confidence is so high that I’m sure if one of them ever asked me, I’d proudly admit that I got my bag from a random vendor and not the boutique.
Plus, this bag is really quite versatile. You can use it as your everyday bag, a dressier bag, a casual bag, louis vuitton outlet a travel bag…. I tell you, the possibilities are endless! I love how it can make anything instantly look super high-end. It doesn’t matter if I’m going to a dinner or a cocktail party – it makes me look uber fabulous as soon as I put my hands on it.
The best part of all is that I didn’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get it. I definitely paid a fraction of the cost I would have had I gone with the real thing. But even with all that, the bag still stands out and looks pretty good. It’s not cheap looking – it has the look and feel of something expensive. Sure, I’ll probably never know if it was produced with the silk lining and the double-hinged top, but it doesn’t matter. I still get all the looks and compliments without the huge cost.
What’s more, I now always look in fashion magazines to see what pieces I could replicate with my bag. Seriously, reverse engineering designer pieces is a real art and I’m a real pro at it. I may not be able to afford them all but if I use my fakes I have the freedom to explore new trends with a lot less risk.

I can find fakes of designer items, which can save me some money and add a hint of luxury to my look.
