I recently found out that I own a Miu Miu knockoff bag - the Coffer. I loved my bag before I realized it's origins, and my appreciation for it has only grew. Interestingly enough, if I had seen it on the arm of the likes of Mischa Barton before actually buying the bag, I don't think I would've been intrigued by the celebrity favourite.

Really, I just picked it up on impulse because I had decided the day before that I wanted a new bag, and the store I bought it at had a "Buy One Get One Free" deal. So a friend and I both got a Coffer replica.

And then, I saw the bag in another store's window last week. I thought it was strange that these stores would imitate each other, or that they had the same manufacturer. But after asking around, I found out that it wasn't just any bag design. Somehow, I appreciate my lovely impulse buy even more now.

Here's to dishing out less than $30 on a bag that could've run me upwards of $1000!

Do you still use it, or are you ashamed?
