Designer Inspired buy or not to buy?

Do you have $8 grand for a bag? Yeah, me I'll meet you out back, in the dark alley....

Buying Designer handbags or "knock offs" as some people like to call it is a touchy thing. Some people snicker at the thought of buying anything but authentic, while others have no problem with it at all.

Where do I fall? In between. I do think it's unfair to the designers when you try to sell or buy handbags with their logo and/or design and try to pass it off as the real thing. On the other hand I see no problem buying a handbag that looks similar to a high end design as long it doesn't try to sell as the actual bag

Check out this designer inspired boutique (shop suey boutique) I recently came across for example. They sell similar designer designs but in no way, shape, or form, do they try to sell the name, brand, logo etc. As a matter of fact if you really don't know your designer bags you would probably just think you're buying a pretty handbag. See for yourself...

The O' so famous Hermes Birkin Bag/ Celest Satchel-$68

Marc Jacobs Stam Bag/ Samantha Satchel $38

Gucci POP Bamboo Bag/ Catrina Satchel-$58

Miu Miu Vitello Lux/ Vanessa Satchel-$58

Knock offs have such a bad stigma but Shop Suey Boutique has been featured on People Style Watch, Glamour, Cosmo, InStyle, Life & Style, and Redbook...So hey, if these major publications have no problem featuring them in their designer filled pages then I see no problem with you?

Let me know what you think!
