What I Wish I Knew Before Purchasing Fake Bags

I wish I knew the truth about buying fake bags before purchasing one for myself.​No matter how convincing it may have looked or seemed, it still wasn’t worth the hassle and regret that I would later feel.​ Fake bags don’t have the same quality as the real thing, and I now know that I should have put in more effort to find the original one.​

At the time, I was so dazzled by the similarities and thought it was cheaper and better to buy a replica bags.​ Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case as soon as I started using it.​ The leather felt different, it was screaming cheap from a mile away and even started falling apart after a few uses.​ I wish I knew how these fake bags looked, and what the real ones looked like; that would have saved me so much trouble.​

But now I’m wiser in this area, I know what to look out for and I won’t be easily fooled.​ I’m now on the lookout for specific signs, like the make of the bag, the types of zippers, stitching, labels, locks and I even check the interior at times.​ Quality matters when it comes to bags and jewelry, and the right one is worth the effort.​

I also wish I knew that these fake bags can be a total waste of a money, no matter how cheap they looked.​ That logo or designer might look great on the outside, but if it doesn’t last more than a season, it isn’t actually worth it.​ With spending, it is better to be safe than sorry and so I now remember to be more cautious when buying my accessories.​

It would have been a lot easier in the long run if I had more knowledge about purchasing a genuine item.​ The real designer bags are made to last longer and look better then their ersatz counterparts.​ All that said, it is important to now know what to look for, so I don’t make the same mistake again.​

I also wish I knew more about the quality of workmanship that goes into the originals.​ The real designer bags come with delicate yet strong details and is almost exactly how you see it in the pictures.​ The zippers work perfectly, the straps are good quality, and the perfect stitching is such a delight to the eyes.​ With replica bags, you’ll only get the rough versions of beautiful things.​

It was obvious that I was fooled by the looks, as I didn’t bother to check the details and went in for a replica.​ I’m thankful that I learned my lesson in time and now I’m not afraid to check the details, and ask around to make sure I’m getting the real thing.​ It’s all about taking the time to do some research and find out if it’s worth the price before splurging on something.​

I also wish I knew that buying these bags was nothing to be ashamed of.​ After all, everyone loves a good deal, and it isn’t wrong to look for one.​ Now, if I want to buy a designer bag, I first look for replicas and compare.​ After all, there’s nothing wrong with being savvy with your money if you can get away with it.​

Now that I am more familiar with the authentic and fake bags, I’m also more aware of how the fake can truly impact the fashion industry.​ I’m not only helping myself but I’m also helping the brands and designers who handcraft each genuine item with time and patience.​ I also understand how this helps curb crime and exploitation, as well as preserve the value of authenticity in the fashion industry.​

I also wish I knew that creating a real item requires a level of skill and craftsmanship that easily differentiates it from a replica in terms of look and feel.​ With the real thing, you can tell that a great deal of time and attention goes into creating each bag.​ The craft has a soul to it that many replicas miss out on, and that’s something you simply can’t replicate.​

It isn’t easy to find a good-looking, quality bag at an affordable price.​ Now I’ve learned to be more careful, and if I find something that looks amazing and is way too good to be true – I keep my eyes open for similar designs that may be at discounted prices.​

Rather than going for a replica, I’m now more inclined to opt for vintage or lower range bags if I want something that looks good and is a nice accessory to have.​ It is also important to remember that not all designer bags may exceed my budget if I keep my eyes and my wallet open.​

Finally, I have to remind myself to never become complacent and stop researching.​ It is important to know names, production techniques and materials used for different types of bags.​ This way, I can really dig deep and research for answers before investing into any product.​ After all, the right knowledge can make all the difference in my purchase decisions.​Free photo close up  knitted bag still life
