I can’t count how many times I’ve seen some random toting fake Louis Vuitton, Burberry or other luxury brand bags.
Trust me on this: you look like an idiot.
Luxury brands signify a luxurious lifestyle. If you’re hauling around a Christian Dior lookalike while wearing a scruffy outfit that does not match the level of the bag, you’re not accomplishing anything.
The thing is, you’re paying these people good money to look a fool. Anyone you would be attempting to impress will see right through the cheaply manufactured façade, so why even bother?
Either way, it’s always wrong to support a black market; so next time you’re on vacation (or anywhere else for that matter), tell those replica hawkers you’ll take a pass.
