Where I live half the people I know have fakes. It makes me quite mad because they act as if they're better than me because of the fact that they can get away with it. Me on the other hand? I'd rather shell out full price for a bona fide Louis than be caught with my pants down (no, not really, but you get the idea) making a counterfiet purchase. Theyre not really sticklers for that crap down here bc I live on the Mexican border, but when they DO bust you (and they will eventually) the shit hits the fan. I knew a woman who would make bundles of money selling to the 'elite' and she drove a Range Rover. She got busted and the next time I saw her she was driving to court in a Jetta.
