    Sigh . . . I was passing by a little boutique on Ventura Blvd and saw this gorgeous pocket bag. I spent 280 for it, then I go on eluxury and GASP there it is but that one is a Marc Jacobs.

    I had NO idea it was "inspired" I just loved the bag!! Is this totally a fashion NO NO to wear it?? I already wore it so I can't return it, but I hate fakes!!

    Not sure what to do :(

    Its not exactly a fashion no no to carry an "inspired" bag. If you spent that much on it, you may as well keep it and get your money's worth.

    But I agree... 280 is still plenty for a knock-off, in my opinion...

    Since you can't return it, just keep it and use it. Keep in mind that you fell in love with it in the first place and that's why you bought it. So who cares if its not Marc Jacobs, it was still the one you fell in love with. You got to work on your relationship with your bag :flower:

    I agree, though I personally wouldn't pay 280 for a bag unless I was familiar with the label (or within a store that I knew was carrying up and coming labels) you bought it because you loved it and thats all that matters. Carry it with pride and be happy that you aren't a slave to a label.

    I agree with the others. You got it because it called your name and you fell in love with it so carry it with pride. Most people won't care what brand it is anyway.

    Remember...you fell in love with the bag, so you bought it. Don't worry about it not being Marc Jacobs. I may be a label addict, but a great bag is a great bag. :flower:

    :blush: Thanks ladies! You are right . . . I do love the bag and still think it's wroth ever penny, it a gorgeous functional bag that will last me for years to come.

    P.S. I forgot to mention the bag came with the matching wallet so 280 for the bag and wallet (with optional wristlet strap) so not terrible.
