It is fun.

Though, i would never dare to go up to a stranger and ask if her bag was a fake, it's just not something i would feel was right.
my bf and i do that too..we followed a girl in the stonestown galleria the other day because i noticed she was carrying a seafoam..but something just didnt seem right, i dunno if it was her clothes or what..on closer inspection we saw that it was a really cheap fake. i dont look down on ppl with fakes-ive thought about buying a fake paddington-its just fun to try to guess if its real or not

I was carrying my fake balenciaga on BART and 'stalked' another woman on the train platform who was carrying what I thought was a real one, saying, "ooh, yours is real, isn't it?". Turns out hers was fake, too! We had a laugh over it.

Yeah. I mean I have nice expensive clothing mixed in with low-end stuff but there are days when I feel yucky and bloated or tired and I just want to throw on something comfy even if I'm carrying a designer bag.Oh well.

I'm not sure as to this being worse... but instead of asking if it was a fake, they actually asked if it was real. Assuming that I'd be carrying a fake in the first place... however I wasn't offended because I didn't expect the accuser to know of very many women who carry real designer handbags.

hahah i love that!! when i see someone w/ a might be real designer bag i always follow them to try to get a good view of it loll. i'll be out at the movies or the mall and then i just start wandering off and my friends give me a weird look, and im like "oh, i was tryin to see if that ladies bag was real" and they're like "ohh" and give me a weird look heheh it is fun, and i would never dare ask anyone if their bag was real or not. i almost did once though, it was a bottega hobo.

I think I saw one too! it was brown and strangely shiny. I see fake birkins all the time -- it's pretty obvious.

Some family friend called my Epi LV plastic. I wanted to cry. Then she went, "oh, Louis Vuitton... fake right?" I quickly said "No..." She knew I was really offended and talked about other small things.
I never ask if a bag is real or fake.

Awww... she problaby diden't know any better.

This thread makes me feel perfectly normal, when going after people to get a closer look of their bags!.

It's just my curiousity.

LilyGirl, how can you tell a fake Birkin? I have see so many of them lately, only when going high end shopping, and do wonder but i can't tell.

I also think it's really rude to ask someone whether their handbag is fake or not, I've been asked many times, I was even asked if my no-brand sunglasses were authentic! I suppose people ask because so many people have fakes. I've never asked anyone if their handbag, or anything else, was fake though.
