Sarah Palin's wardrobe: the Louie Vuitton is a fake
Advertisements [?]
Huffington Post has a slideshow up of Palin's new $150,000 wardrobe. One of the photos shows Piper carrying her mom's Louie Vuitton handbag. It is an older bag since the leather is aged, so it is something that Palin has owned from before she was put on the ticket. The bag is a fake. It is a bit off from the authentic version and it has little brass feet on the bottom, which the real Louie Vuitton bag doesn't have.

Why is this important? Because it appears that Palin purchased an illegal counterfeit handbag that was most likely made by a child in an underdeveloped country. I have a HUGE problem with counterfeit designer goods. I am not going to feel a whole lot of pity for Louie Vuitton, but on principle no company should get ripped off. I think it says something about her character. These products are illegal to produce and they are made in sweatshops, often by children. The real Louie Vuitton bags are made in France, Spain or the United States by adults who work in "up to code" workshops and are trained in handmade leather goods.

Some may not think it is a big deal, but again I think it says something about this woman.
