Ever confessed to wearing fakes?

A friend of mine asked to help him paint his office today. I went wearing clothing I didn't care about, including the first pair of fakes (supposed SFAM sigs with crystals) I bought on ebay years ago. I knew there was a reason they were still in the back of my closet.

On my way back home I remembered I had to run to the post office and while I was in line, this woman complimented me on my jeans. And I was struck with this dilemma: do I confess to wearing fake jeans or do I just thank her?

I just couldn't accept that compliment; I ended up telling her they were fake and about the painting this morning. She confessed to once using a fake Coach bag. I felt so sheepish...I couldn't get home fast enough to take them off!

So - anyone been caught wearing fakes that's willing to admit to it?

I plead this excuse: I wore them before I knew better!

yup! I was so mortified when I found out some stuff I had were fakes. They have been disposed of properly.

I don't mean to give the impression that I wear fakes regularly - I've never worn them since discovering AF. But I kept this one pair for something like today. But now they're covered in paint, they will be trashed. I was just amused that I wore them to one place in public and I had to "out" myself!

We should start a new thread, "Creative Ways to Dispose of Fake Denim".

the first pair i ever bought were fakes and then after she sent them to me something looked weird, plus they weren't stretch like the auction said, so i saw Idalis' authentication guide on ebay, saw they were fake and returned them on the grounds of not being stretch cuz i woulda felt bad if i told her they were fake...

Hey BabyLolek --> it's because I spend all my time in the MALL here!

I love my R&R's! But SFAM are still my fav - I usually don't have to get those hemmed. ;)

no reason to confess to someone who is ignorant to denimology.

^Neither have I, but there have been some close calls! I don't know what I would have done without AF (and before it existed AND when Pam was there, HF)!
