THE REAL DEAL

Fashion (Canada) - - Letters -

Af­ter read­ing “Knocked Up” [Septem­ber 2017], I was re­minded of the time in my life when I pur­chased my fair share of knock-off bags in the al­leys of many U.S. cities. On the cusp of my 30th birth­day, I thought: “Why and for whom am I car­ry­ing around these fake bags? If I’m try­ing to project an im­age, do I re­ally want a fake purse to be part of that?” I de­cided to never buy fake again. Once a year, I treat my­self to a new bag. When my daugh­ter turns 21, she will be the lucky re­cip­i­ent of my col­lec­tion. She will be able to carry a part of me wher­ever she goes, and I hope that is an im­age she can be proud of. —Laura (Toronto)
