Imitating is Intimidating

Saturday, July 19, 2014
Jamaican women who can not afford the hefty retail prices for designer handbags are willing to settle for the next best thing - "MADE IN CHINA". But what about that sassy diva who purchased her $500USD Michael Kors handbag that our Chinese "frenemy" are so gloriously imitating? Talk about a horror story when a total stranger who is admiring your handbag walks up to you and asks you if it is real! Be honest! You want to slap the hell out of that b@&$h!

Wearing a beautiful leather accessory that can be mistaken for a knockoff is so-so in comparison to paying the original price or more for a FAKE. It happens many times and it can happen to you if you don't know where to shop or what to look for.

Where to shop:

  • Designer brand's website.
  • Authorized retailers. Don't be afraid to shoot an email to that designer's website asking them for authorized retailers in Jamaica.

How to shop

  • If a store or individual has too many pieces of a $300USD or more Dooney & Bourke handbag for sale then start asking questions.
  • Prada for $100USD? Let's get real.
  • Feel the quality of the material and inspect the craftsmanship. An authentic piece looks like a work of art because attention to details is of utmost importance.
  • Smell it. The smell of fake leather often makes me feel nauseated. It is almost like plastic.

Now that you are armed with a little more ammunition you are ready to go into the retail wild. I am just an email away if you need any more advice.
