Both look cheap. The bag looks obviously fake and that jacket is hideous, IMO.
Save and find something much better!

I don't like either option but it's kind of hilarious that people are giving her investment advice on a fashion and beauty board...

I'm a guy and fur is a turn off to me. If it looks real you look like Cruella Deville.

If it looks fake you look like a lady of the evening. Both of these these seem to scream that you want attention.

Try to figure out how you think others will perceive you if you are wearing these ...garments.

Please don't waste your money on junk.

I don't like knock-offs either, says cheap and trashy to me, imo, and it's probably vinyl. But go for it if you like it, I'll admit it's a cute design.
But why not take that money and get either a nice leather bag that's not a knock-off, or a jacket that doesn't look like a muppet? For $130 you can get a nice quality trench, denim, or maybe even a leather jacket. In general, I stopped liking any kind of fakeness once I moved past 15. It just cheapens your look. Either get the real thing or something that's not pretending to be a luxury item when it's not. JMO.
Plus one to all of this.


As an aside, even the model looks hideous in the ad.

Love the bag, I do think you should go for that.

The fur however, yuck! I'm not one of those PETA people, but I do dislike fur because I think it looks outdated, no one wears that stuff anymore.

I wouldn't spend that much money on knock-offs/fakes. Especially since they both look it. I can buy that off the street for like $20. If you really must have these items, I'd save up and buy the real thing.
