Don’t be a knock-off Nigel!

How’d I miss this cute little video from Ratatouille!

Remy says, “No, no, no, no, no… Don’t be a knock-off Nigel. Why settle for second best, when you can have the real thing!”

Such a wise little rat! And it so relates to everything: not just pirated DVDs, but handbags as well. It’s a good reminder that you can carry the real thing.

There was a head’s up in the New York Post yesterday that there’s a real problem with Fake Hermes Birkin’s popping up all over the city. It warned:

“Attention, fashionistas: New York is on fake Birkin alert! There’s been a sudden influx of faux Hermes Birkin bags around the city, popping up especially on subways and buses.”

Ladies & Gents, I know the recession has hit hard, but there’s no need to settle. If you love Hermes or Louis Vuitton, or Chanel, or Gucci- whatever… you don’t have to spend full retail to get it- but don’t carry a fake. If you want a deal- get it second hand. Sure, we’d TOTALLY LOVE IT if you bought it from Fashionphile- but if not, search other reputable sellers, on eBay or the web.

Just be careful, and get the real deal!
