Women who love designer handbags but can’t afford the high prices shop around for handbag knockoffs.
Most women want to own at least one designer handbag. But to spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on a handbag is enough to make them choke. Anyway, why would they want to do that when they know they can get a replica of the bag they’re yearning for?
Imitation Is The Greatest Form of Flattery
You know the saying, “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery”? Well, I don’t think most designers are flattered by the replica knockoffs. After all, this booming side business is taking money out of their pockets. Because some of these knockoffs look almost as good as the real thing, the designer knockoffs business is alive and well. And if you live in a major city like New York, you’ll surely find handbag stands on many corners.
Some handbag knockoffs look almost real and may even be made from the same materials as the real thing. They are inspired by the designer creations. And some women feel there’s no need for them to pay all that money for such designers as Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Louis Vuitton or any of the other well-known designers.
A majority of these replica knockoffs are available over the internet if you’re not in a major city. Coach handbag knockoffs and others are being sold at online stores at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. These sites are the not so secret world for women who are not ashamed to carry a copy of a designer’s creation.
They simply must have the latest and greatest designer handbag without paying the heavy price. And they’re even more pleased when the average person can’t tell the difference. Some women don’t even know that real Fendi bags have an insignia on the zipper and that another designer uses tracking numbers on the inside of its bag.
And why do women want to own designer bags in the first place? Well, some think of it as a status symbol–instant status. Others are simply obsessed with owning the latest and greatest designer handbag and will settle for handbag knockoffs when they can’t afford the real thing.
