But I’m REALLY REALLY angry to see that recently, sites which sell counterfeit merchandise have been a source of traffic to this blog.
Counterfeiting is a crime. Period. The people who make and distribute fake fashion accessories are the same unsavory lot who make and distribute fake prescription medications, baby formula, automobile parts and airplane parts.
If you can’t afford an expensive handbag, then don’t carry one. In no way is your personal style diminished because you’re not wearing a bunch of visible logos – quite the contrary. But don’t kid yourself or anybody else that you can “pass” by carrying a fake, or that in doing so you are clever. You’re a criminal. There’s no other word for it.
I’m dead serious. If this continues, this blog will close down faster than a strip club with a broken ATM.
