9 Signs Your Frenemy's Designer Bag is Fake ...

COMMENT

Let's face it, we all have frenemies, and there is nothing worse than running into one looking fabulous and showing off her new designer bag...

unless...

the bag she is so proud of... is not authentic!2

I know it's bitchy, but, come on, wouldn't you want to know if that Prada on her shoulder is fake?

;)

Well, here are a few ways you can find out!

1. Find out How Much She Paid for It ...

And then compare it to the price on the designer website or at a reliable online store (like saks.com, e-luxury.com, neimanmarcus.com, net-a-porter.com etc.).

No matter how great the clearance is, a good designer bag can not cost less than $450 - $500 (and this is the lowest Gucci went this season for their $1200 clutches).2

So if she says she was just that lucky to get the bag at a huge sale for $200, your dear frenemy is lying and that bag is as fake as her extensions...

2. Find out Where She Got It ...

And see if that store really carries that brand and that particular bag.

She might casually say that she got that beautiful Dior bag in Saks on 5th.

But, wait, what a pity - those gorgeous dark blue clutches were sold out 3 weeks before Christmas...

Hmm...

And another thing, if the suspicious "designer" bag was purchased anywhere but in the official boutiques or department stores (Saks 5th Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom), it's 99 to 1 that it's not authentic.

Your frenemy might confess she got it from a dealer who said: We get them directly from the factory, that's why the price is so low.

But here's the trick, many designer bags are handmade, and even if the bag in question was partially made at a factory, Fashion Houses order a very exact amount of merchandise they later redirect to the boutiques and department stores.2

So, every single designer bag ever made is registered and there are simply NO designer bags that just wonder off the factory and miraculously end up at some guy's garage!
