My Lesson Learned About Fake Bags vs Genuine
As a youngster, I had always admired beautiful designer bags and I dreamed of having a nice one of my own. However, being a student at the time with very limited funds, I experienced reality as to its affordability told differently and snapped out of my daydreaming. Until one day, I visited a local market, selling a wide array of handbags and was told that all of these bags were genuine designer bags. Ignorant of the fact that I had no knowledge of discerning an authentic from a counterfeit bag, I eagerly purchased one.
Oh boy, was I wrong! As soon as I got home, I saw flaws in the construction and design of the bag that was completely obvious. Even for someone with as little knowledge as me, I was able to determine that the bag could not be genuine. Although I didn’t experience the wallet-breaking cost associated with purchasing an original item, I did learn quite a lesson in buying fake bags from the market.
Sure, the price might seem too tempting to resist, but the amount of remorse I felt for buying a counterfeit was enough for me to never want to go back down this path. The bag I bought didn’t look like a replica bags, but it just had a different feel and construction that differentiated it from the authentic item. I then remembered that quality should never be compromised solely for price.
The idea that we can save money by getting replicas of designer items is an alluring opportunity, especially for individuals on a budget. But let me tell ya, deep inside my soul I feel so much regret for falling into this trap and having to pay for the ‘discount’ in the end. It’s not worth it and I’d hate to see my fellow friend making the same mistake as I.
Now I know that the chances are pretty slim for someone to identify a fake bag, especially those who don’t know much about enumerating the differences between a real and fake item. That’s why it’s better to do your own research, know every detail of the item and its features. If you want to buy something, make sure that the vendor can provide you the official verification documents in order to assure that the product is the best one.
Being wise about our spending and avoiding the urge to purchase something that doesn’t look like the real deal is one way to save ourselves money. The key is to slow down and take our time to assess the credibility of a purchase before we actually commit to it. It’ll save us money and time in the future, and most importantly, it’ll help keep us on the right track. After all, it’s cheaper to buy something things right than having to swap it out for another one that costs more money.
