My Style

Buy Experiences or Buy Designer

I purchased a fake Gucci belt on Amazon for $29. I was ashamed of myself at first for buying a dupe (disclaimer: this belt was purchased before the whole Gucci scandal but the company has made great strides to overcome its mistakes of poor taste) but now I wear that belt with pride.

The fake Gucci belt sat in my basket for a few days but I decided to pull the trigger after I realized I could purchase a plane ticket for the cost of a real Gucci belt. I thought to myself, you love to travel. Why not purchase experiences and look good while traveling instead of spending your hard earned money on the real thing? Honestly, the belt looks real and that’s all that matters, right?

I do enjoy certain designer bands. And I own some real and authentic pieces from these brands, but when you’ve figured out what’s important to you and where you’d prefer to spend your cash, the designer bags and shoes may take a back seat when a trip to the beach is calling your name. Some may call me a “poser” as the kids say (Is that really what they say these days? Goodness I’m getting old!) but in the words of my girl, Ariana Grande, “I see it. I like it. I want it. I got it.” I like the Gucci belt. I also like to travel. I can have both by buying the fake. Seems logical to me.

So secret’s out, friends. I have a fake Gucci belt. But will my next designer purchase be real or fake? The world may never know! 😉
