We laughed so hard when we read Amy Claire's article on designers who spot their own fakes. She ran into Kate Spade at a party, and asked if Kate had ever confronted a woman carrying a faux bag. Turns out, it happened: Once in Soho, she saw a woman with an obvious fake, raced across the street, and asked where the bag was bought. "[The woman] said, 'Oh I didn't buy it, my husband did!... Anytime you ask someone, they say that... Oh, I don't know, it was a gift." We've never designed accessories, but we have similar feelings - whenever we save for a designer bag, then hunt it down, it makes our skin curl to see its plastic evil twin on the subway or bouncing on a shoulder down the street.

But would you ever confront your friend about carrying one?
