Nada Prada ...



... nope, it looked fake.


The Coach looked like it was made of couch material.




The Chanel's would have made Coco pirouette in her grave.


Kate Spade would have used a spade to bury the bags being pawned off as hers and Louis Vitton would probably deposit a lugie in the one's with LV on it.

Can you tell I wasn't impressed?

I went to a knock-off purse party. I had heard they were made cheaply, but not bad for the price. Price my Burberry covered butt. These were priced at $100 to $150 bucks. If I am going to spend that much on a knock off, I'd rather wait and save for the real thing.

They also had "Tiffany" inspired jewelry. I won't even bore you with my opinion of that.

So, because I stayed waisted my time at this party, I didn't call John. I plan on it tonight.

I am ALL about the knockoffs....but not for that price! UGH!

Q of M: Believe me, they were so fake looking, you would have passed on them too.

*shhh* I know a guy..

Nah - seriously, I agree with you - I'd rather save up for the real deal. And who is going to pay $700 for a vinyl bag? If I'm going to pay that much that sucker better be real leather *glares at LV* However, I do have a few fakes in the closet, but I've made a conscious effort to no longer buy anymore, even if I do know a guy (or in my case a gal that gets really good ones from overseas)...

Call John!

That's a lot of cash for a "knock off", especially a knock off that looks it. I very much dislike parties like this...I'm glad my friends don't do these!

A friend at work had one of these parties that I didn't get to attend. After reading about your experience I'm glad I didn't! I've learned over the years to respect your opinion. Thanks for the save.

All very tacky!

I've been dying to go to one of these. A friend at work "has a friend" that holds them and I'm supposed to be on the next secret invitee list. I've seen the purses that have come out of the parties and I loved them (specifically a Prada and Chanel) complete with tags and nice interior fabrics. Hers were only $40-60 per bag though. You didn't bust my bubble, I'll still look and probably buy cuz I ain't about to spend $300+ for a bag. No way unhuh.

The knock-off purses were huge when I was in Italy last year. I got Rachel a "faux" Burberry and Prada for like 20 Euros a piece.

Can't you get arrested for selling those here?

I go downtown for my knock-offs. I'll pay $40 at the most and the quality is good, not great, but for $40 I guess you get your monies worth.

Nancy said...

Sure, $40 would be fine for these. I think because I live in Snob Hills (Rochester Hills) the lady just put the higher prices on them .... any women were buying like 2-3 of them each!
