I have never understood the appeal of knock-off bags.

That sums it up nicely. For me it is also that especially IF I could afford it, I really would not want to pay through the nose to carry around an advertisement for some luxury brand. I know not all "designer" bags are filled with logos, but too many, for my taste, are.

LOL, the test was pretty fun. I had no idea about the jeans or the sunglasses, nor the perfume, but I got the others right.

My mama always taught me to try to get a good deal when you can. But something I have learned along the way is you get what you pay for. I have never wanted a purse that was a label brand nor would I be so superficial to make people think that I spent that much. It's very immature. If I wanted the expensive bag because I liked it that much, I'd buy the real thing. They are much better quality.
