A while back, Rosel wrote a fascinating post about getting pressured into carrying a counterfeit Louis Vuitton handbag. Her rather insistent aunts bought it for her, and essentially forced it on her. She did what I think most of us would’ve done in that situation: Succumbed to their wishes, carried the bag a couple of times to be polite, and then stashed it.
She then dropped me a note to ask for my thoughts on designer fakes and ask how women should react to social pressure to buy and wear/carry designer goods.
