What would you do if there’s a branded handbag you are badly obsessed with? Buy it? Would you still buy it even if the price is overwhelmingly luxurious for you? Say, $1.5K to $2K which is more or less P75K to P100K if converted to peso. Well maybe, it’s only chicken feed to some of you. Unfortunately not for me!
But what if… you found an almost perfect clone for the price of only P7K and still can get it for a discounted price of P5K. What would you do? Grab or would you still ignore? There’s no question about the quality. As I've said, it’s almost perfect if only for the color which is slightly darker compared to the original. But I’m confident, for those who are not too intensely familiar with the original one won’t notice it at all, not even the embossed logo that happened to be vaguely bigger. Other than those unnoticeable disparities, all is well. …It has the serial no. found inside the bag, accompanied with a protective bag cover and the card with instruction on how to care for it.
Taking all considerations, the fact that it is still a pirated thing,, a copycat, a fake, a replica, an imitaition or whatever you want to call it,. ....is it worth buying? I chuckle as I mull over this confusion. By the way, the cheaper clone is still pricey compared to the unbranded handbags found in big malls but super great deal compared to the original. Now, I'm seeking your opinion. Should I follow my obsessed heart or be guilty and just let it go? Can you please help me decide?!
