Why do you own both authentics and replicas?

then i found out bout NBF! i wanted to give it a try. was happy with the 1st purchase but the 2nd one, i wasn't so happy bout. those are the only 2 fakes i've gotten so far and i don't think i'll be getting any soon. i paid almost $500 for those 2 fake bags. and for $500 i'd rather get an authentic Linea Pelle or some other lower end designer brands. i don't know. personally, nothing beats the authentic.
i can say that when i was a teen what urged me to buy fakeys were lack of funds. and now that im in my 20s what urged me to get those NBFs were curiosity. and if budget is to be an issue in my life now, i think i'd get an authentic bag of some other more affordable designer than spend dough on a fake.
those are just my sentiments!
OMG are we the same person?! haha. My first designer bag was Coach too. Then the first time I bought a rep was when I couldn't afford a Balenciaga in college. So that started the buying of reps.. as I started to work I felt like I did not want to spend all that money on reps anymore. It was after I bought LV reps for the first time..I felt sick because I realized I didn't want quantity over quality anymore. I felt like I wasted money and could have just saved up a little bit and bought an authentic one.
Now I buy the auths of what I truly want because I feel better knowing I worked hard and earned it to buy a truly well-made bag that I love. I do still look at reps but I can't help but think that when I spend money on reps, I could save up and get an LV easily.. or save up a little more and just get a Balenciaga or a Chanel.
