    Angry OUTRAGE!


    I cannot believe this article was in the miami herald. I can't wait to read the slew of comments from angry tbf-ers!! This woman ought to be ashamed of herself!!! She delights in her piece of crap purchases as well as offers tips on how to score a great piece of crap, just as she did! Reading the comments on the article are great too but there are a few people still who are like, "this wouldn't happen if the real bags weren't so expensive" and "i think its fun, i don't see any harm in it. getting drugs is easier." WTF?? Seriously, now?

    I know I'm just preaching to the choir but I feel the public outcry should get this woman fired for encouraging illegal activity! It's shameful.

    It's really sad to read some of the comments people made about the article... I mean, some of them are so naive! They say things about there's no harm in bargain hunting and that fakes don't hurt anyone. They also talk about how they think all of the people who are outraged about the article really have a fake Coach bag sitting in their closet. I can definitely say, without a doubt, that this article was outrageously immoral on multiple levels AND I don't have a fake Coach bag sitting in my closet (or any fake bag for that matter).

    Unbelievable.

    Counterfeit goods are a federal crime for a reason. The sales from this merchandise aids all levels of criminal activity including child labor, labor slavery, human trafficking and organized crime. I'm kinda scared the Miami Herald would give that writer a platform to spread the crime of counterfeiting. Aside from being a clear case of unethical journalism, she seems to have fabricated some pieces in her storytelling. Appalling!

    Speaking of stupid fakes... I just saw at the mall a new store that opened up. It's called Zida Fashions, or something like that. Well, right up front by the door (I didn't go in) are a whole bunch of "Balenciaga" bags. I'm not sure if they were illegal fakes or not... they didn't say Balenciaga on them or on signs around them. But they were the exact style of the Weekend style... tassles, studs, proportions, the whole works.

    I saw someone link to that article. It's so terrible =(

    To me, there's a difference in getting a good bargain bag (on sale at my fave stores - brick & mortar, or online), and supporting counterfeits.

    I'm always proud to say my purses are all authentic.

    yea I got one of those as a Christmas gift this year, Its cute, but I don't want to carry it, i really want a real one.

    i met up with my cousin in Chinatown this year because she had some shopping to do, instead of fake bags she finds these crazy huge costume jewelry shops, i bought so many adorable pairs of earrings and you cant beat $5 scarves. My best friend bought some knock of bags, and by that point she ran out of money and i was lending her cash. I was hiding my louis vuitton purchases and shopping bag in my purse when i was there because i felt like someone would grab it from me if they saw it then turn around and begin crazy bartering! even though i found some cute jewelry and the experience is a bit hysterical, i wish i would have just bought a pair of sunglasses from burberry instead, i'm still regretting not buying them since the chinatown fiasco took up too much time to run back to burberry afterwards
