If you know it is fake, news flash everyone else does too:
If you are wearing jeans from Wally World and carrying a LV (Seriously there are no words)
If I can smell you coming a mile away? Why do these things all smell like gasoline? I can only assume you are highly flammable - beware! WTF are these things made out of?
If the gold or silver hardware looks like and actually is plastic
If the bag is broken and has not been repaired- designer bags NEVER break and if they do the store will repair it or replace it for free. A lifetime warranty is the least you can expect on a purse you opted to buy over you medical insurance for the year - fashion is always the cure
If you are driving a car that has an exterior item held on with duct tape. If you can't afford to fix your car how are you carrying a $2000 Gucci bag?
My favorite part of the recession is being able to afford bags that I could not always afford before. Opt for brands such as: Michael Kors, Coach, Cole Haan and Kate Spade rather than that "el cheapo" fake. Carrying a moderately priced designer bag during an economic crisis lets everyone know you still have a job (or at the least a fat severance check).

Seriously I know it is tempting, but put down the fake already! Everyone knows you are fronting when you take your Motorola razor out of your D&G bag.
