A few months ago, I took Jade into a photo studio for some pictures. The man who checked us out at the front desk took one look at my handbag and asked me
“Is that Michael Kors Handbag real?”
Is this guy serious right now?
“Yes it is.” I responded awkwardly, not knowing if I should laugh, be offended or ask him if he knew something I didn’t. He started to back peddle and went on about his wife was looking for one and he really liked mine.
Thanks. “I got it at their store in City Creek, I bet if you go into the store you’ll be able to find her something.”
Okay, if I’m being totally honest, it did bug me… Mostly because I don’t wear things because they are “name brand” I wear them because I like them. With that being said, I don’t believe in wearing knock offs of a real brand. If I can’t afford something, I’m not going to purchase a fake one to pretend like I can. I don’t mind when others wear knock offs, I just don’t for personal reasons. That comment was kind of rude right?
I know these photos are from a few months ago, but with all of the craziness from the holidays they never made it onto my blog. So in honor of two more inches of snow last night, here is a pre-snow look that makes me happy.
For this look I took the basic tee and jeans look to a whole new level. By adding heels, a poncho cardigan, some jewelry and one of my favorite REAL Michael Kors handbags, I went from my basic mom look to ready for a night on the town. I bet you’ll never guess where the cardigan is from, anyone? Its from Walmart! I love that they are carrying so many cute fashions for everyday and activewear. Who is impressed? Surprised? Shocked? I think we can all agree that if you like something someone is wearing just ask them “Where did you get that cute….whatever?” Please don’t ask if the things they are wearing are real, thats just tacky people!
Would you wear something that was a knock off if you couldn’t afford the real one? Why or why not?

I don’t know if I’d go as far as rude, but yes it is awkward and a little tacky to ask that question. I think there’s a difference between a straight up knock-off and a similar style. I’m not interested in trying to pretend my purse or clothing is something it’s not, but I’m also not interested in exorbitant prices.
You’re right, tacky is the word I was meaning.
