I recently had the pleasure of being gifted a fake Louis Vuitton bag. It was like a dream come true! I had always looked up to this iconic brand, and was overjoyed to finally own something that looked so luxurious. When I propped up my Louis Vuitton bag, I couldn’t help but to feel overjoyed.
At first glance it looks just like the real thing. All my friends praised me for it – and they all assumed it was real. The craftsmanship of the bag and all of its minor details gave off a very authentic feel and quality. The hardware was bright and carefully cut and not overly ornate or busy.

And sometimes, you really just need something that looks and feels good without having to break the bank.
It is in these cases, where I’d opt for a fake Louis Vuitton bag. But either way, being true to yourself and knowing what you purchase is ultimately the most important thing. It’s okay to buy replicas, as long as you’re aware of what you’re buying.
Though, to me, the biggest takeaway I had from my fake Louis Vuitton bag was realizing how much I valued my own opinion. Besides not breaking the bank to purchase a designer item, I had freed myself from feeling like I needed to stick to the ‘normal’ route and succumb to the social pressure of carrying an authentic luxury bag.
