I’ve been mamed for thirty years and I’m still. in lovewith the same woman. Ifmy life ever finds out. she’ll kill me .
I did it. I broke down and bought a nice Chinese Louis Vuitton replica on iOffer. And it’s so awesomely bad that I kind of love it.
Maybe I don’t understand cyber bargaining, but I had no idea that fakes cost hundreds of dollars. I bought the cheapest bag I could find, a $38 version of the Heartbreak style, which would never fool anyone in the know.
Where the snakeskin on the real bag is purplish, mine is bright fuchsia. The turquoise rising from the bottom isn’t quite right. The jokes have been mangled (perhaps “mamed” would be more accurate) into near gibberish with wild misspellings and odd punctuation. There’s a clip meant for a shoulder strap, yet no such strap was included. The surface is glossy rather than dull like the finish is meant to be.
I have no idea how these purses get manufactured but I imagine they’re just copied from photos. Though I’m certain that if I were to try and transcribe Chinese characters from a second-hand (or original) source, the results would be equally kooky. Perhaps I could try mimicking Chinese brands and selling my goods back to them. It could totally be a social commentary art project.
