Buying an authentic designer bag online is tricky

My opinion is that the best source for authentic handbags is an authorized dealer. Buying a purse from the Internet is a very risky decision. It doesn’t matter if you are planning on purchasing it from an online store or from ebay, there is always a high change that you’ll get tricked into paying a small fortune on a cheap knockoff. If you aren’t an expert than it will be really difficult to know what to look for when checking how authentic looking a bag is. This is why I highly advise you to go to a Louis Vuitton store if you want to be sure that you are actually buying a Louis Vuitton purse.

The price is an indicator for its authenticity

Indeed, second hand designer handbags can be found mostly online so there is no getting around it. This is why you should use the price as a realistic indicator for its authenticity. Even if it is a pre-owned purse, it can’t cost only a couple hundred dollars. A second hand designer handbag usually comes at half of its initial price, so if the new bag has the retail price of $2,000 then the pre-owned one should cost at least $1,000 depending on how well preserved it is.

Take a look at the hardware

When we are talking about ways of spotting a fake designer handbag, the hardware is one of the main things we should consider. Cheap quality replica designer purses have metallic parts that are made from a light stainless steel, with rough edges and without the proper markings and logos. Also, pay attention to the color of the hardware. Make sure that it is identical to the one of the authentic bag.

The stitching should be flawless

Designers pay great attention to the stitching of a bag, they make a real art from decorating their purses with some of the most complicated and flawless stitching patterns in the world. This is why it is essential to be careful at the stitching of the bag you are planning to buy. If the purse has an uneven, slanted or sloppy stitching then the product is surely a poorly made replica handbag. The number of stitches, distance between the stitches and the color of the threads- all of these are very important details that influence the authentic look of a purse.

Heat embossed stamp

It is no secret that the original brands have turned every stamp they emboss on their handbags into a complex way of authenticating the products. These stamps are very carefully designed and applied. This is the main reason why the heat embossed stamp represents one of the best ways of spotting afake designer handbag. My advice to you is to study very well the color of the ink, the font of the letters, the size of the stamp and the distance between the upper stitching of the bag and the stamp. On an authentic look designer bag, the stamp should be pretty high and close to the stitching. If the stamp is located in the center of the distance between the lock and the stitching then the product is definitely a cheap looking replica handbag. A very useful tip: on a genuine purse, the stamp will be look as it is part of the material.

A particularity of genuine Hermes handbags is that these have a blind stamp. Hermes does not make its products with the help of complicated machineries, but with the craft of experienced artisans who hand made every purse. These artisans are the ones who apply a blind stamp on the products, and this blind stamp represents the trademark and includes the date when it was made. This is why you need to examine the stamp of the Hermes bag and make sure that this isn’t embossed too deep, like machine stamped bags. On an authentic purse, the stamp can be barely seen, especially from a distance.

Simply follow these tips and you will surely be able to find easily a high quality replica bag to purchase, a pre-owned designer purse or even an authentic one. No matter what you are planning to buy, the above guidelines are very useful for identifying an authentic looking designer purse. I know that they may seem just some small details, but these are so much more than that. These are the actual differences between a fake designer bag and a genuine looking one, the differences between a satisfactory purchase and a huge disappointment.

Another Louis Vuitton Dilemma: The Truth About Fake Neverfull Bags!

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Some replica handbags are as wildly popular now as they were years back, when they were just released and fake Neverfull bags are the perfect example here.

Fake Neverfull Bags

Fake Neverfull Bags

Many women really want to have their very own replica LV Neverfull but at the same time they are worried that they will get a cheap-looking bag that has all sorts of flaws.

I understand all of your worries just as much as I understand your love for fake Neverfull bags! There are many guides on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton bags but that doesn’t mean that all the guidelines you can find there are also true. Some of the people who write these guides don’t always know what they are talking about and give misleading information.

One of the oldest myths regarding fake Neverfull bags is that the pattern should always match on either side of the seams. I’m sure you’ve read about this before. Well, guess what, that’s not actually true! And this goes for authentic Louis Vuitton Neverfull bags too!

Please keep in mind that even on authentic LV bags the checkers don’t always line up! So if the squares on the sides don’t have the same size, are not complete or are not aligned on your fake Louis Vuitton bag, don’t panic! That’s not a sign that you’ve come across a cheap knockoff. And this goes for the checkers on both sides of the bottom too.

It’s true that LV is very careful with their Monogram and USUALLY makes it symmetrical from side to side in all Monogram types but not always! So stop listening to absolute rules like “the pattern should always match precisely on either side of the seam”.

And since I know that photos are more trustworthy than words, here are some pictures of authentic LV bags that don’t have a symmetrical pattern:

How To Spot Good Replica Louis Vuitton Handbags Out And About

Categories:Louis Vuitton

There are all kinds of Louis Vuitton handbags out there. Some are the real deal, some are crappy fakes, and some are pitch perfect replicas. If you want to look great, you’ve got to know the difference between a good and a bad fake.

Replica Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag

The first step to know on how to spot good replica Louis Vuitton handbags is knowing what you’re looking for. I hope this guide will help you make the right decisions and buy wonderful Louis Vuitton bag. Here is what you need to know:

Like I said, the first thing to do is:

•Picking a style that you like to check out
•Finding that style on the Louis Vuitton site and checking out the specs
•Knowing the features that are particular to that bag
•Looking at some high resolution shots both on the site and of celebrities wearing the bag you want (this will give you a sense as to how these bags look when worn)

But, beyond looking at the specs and pics that the official Louis Vuitton site provides you with, you’ve got to know a little about Louis Vuitton bags in general. Louis Vuitton is the most popular maker of luxury handbags in the world and with good reason – their bags are marvels of fashion and design. The canvas, leather, hardware, and special features of a Louis Vuitton bag are unique and particular. You simply need to know a thing or two about LV so that you can avoid getting duped by inaccurate fake Louis Vuitton bags.

Knowing the Features Particular to Louis Vuitton Handbags

Louis Vuitton Canvas

Some people mistakenly believe that Louis Vuitton is all about leather. Maybe this is because leather is supposedly a fancier material. But, the fact is, Louis Vuitton made its name with amazing canvas prints. Starting with the Damier canvas in 1888, Louis Vuitton has continued to unveil gorgeous canvas print handbags including the ubiquitous classic Monogram and its many variations.

Real Louis Vuitton canvas is sturdy, waterproof, and scratch resistant. The material was created for luggage, so it is built to last. Good replica Louis Vuitton canvas will be heavy, but not stiff. Make sure to check that the monogram logo is properly replicated. Look closely at the photos that the replica site provides – do they match up the photos of the original bag?

Make sure that the canvas has the proper thickness (not flimsy, not too stiff), that the color matches that of the original, that all patters match up and that all the markings are not only correct but are accurately rendered.

Leather Trim

So, Louis Vuitton may have made their mark in canvas, but they are no slouch when it comes to leather. Louis Vuitton handbags usually feature high quality leather trim. Excellent quality leather (the kind found in real LV bags) will grow richer, darker, and suppler with time. You can tell real Louis Vuitton bags because the leather becomes honeyed with time.

When checking the leather trim on fake Louis Vuitton bags, make sure to look at:
• The coloring (real bags have a beige color at first that slowly becomes like honey)
• The seams (should be made with strong yellow thread)

Hardware

Louis Vuitton handbags feature gold toned brass hardware; not silver. A good replica will feature this same material, and a bad one will often have cheap, light hardware. It’s important that you make sure the hardware of your replica handbag is heavy – otherwise it may fall apart (or fall off!) with every day wear.
• Make sure that the material is up to standards and is heavy
• Make sure the color matches that of the original
• Check for engravings and make sure they are identical to the original

Special Features

Each Louis Vuitton handbag has its own special features. This is one of the areas where many fake bags are lacking – they can get a decent canvas and put it together fine, but they haven’t paid attention to important details that are unique to individual bags. It’s up to you to know what is particular about your bag of choice and make sure that your replica matches.

Things to look for include:

• Exterior and interior pockets
• Handles and adjustable straps
• Clasps and closures (and whether they have engravings)
• Engravings and logos (on hardware and plaques)
• Extra pockets
• Draw strings, tassels, etc.

Remember not only to check for what is missing on fake Louis Vuitton bags, but also whether there is something on your bag that shouldn’t be there. If you thoroughly check all bags before buying and read this guide on how to spot good replica Louis Vuitton handbags, you’re on the right path. This is the only way you will be sure to get the bag you want and that you’ll get something that looks and feels as it should. One of my favorite sites is so you can check if out if you’re looking for a great bag.

There are a lot of replica advice and guides here on the blog. Make sure you read them to find out where to get the best fake Louis Vuitton bags.

How To Spot A Fake Chanel 2.55 Bag From Scammers?

Categories:Other Brands

chanel-paper-bag

It really baffles me that fake Chanel handbags are sold everywhere online. It’s so easy to search for fake Chanel bags and have them pop up on eBay. Most of them look exactly like the authentic Chanel bags. However, don’t be tricked. The only place you can buy an authentic, brand new Chanel bag with a %100 guarantee is from a Chanel boutique.

Scammers have tried their hardest to replicate the authentic Chanel bags, but they will never come close to real thing. The production process of a Chanel bag is extremely costly, so it’s less likely for scammers to do it right. This is the reason why scam artists don’t put much effort into the designing the bags just like the real ones. All they are after is a quick buck, and making the bag cheaper contributes to that, if the bags actually sell.

Is It Worth It to Pay $200 For a Fake Chanel Bag Online?
Really, is it? Are there any downsides? Well, you could end up paying $200 for a fake bag. Or, you could consider purchasing a secondhand Chanel handbag. The problem with that route is that there is a possibility that you could still purchase a fake. If you do purchase happen to purchase one, and the Chanel boutique cannot identify it then it is, indeed, a fake bag. That would be the worst feeling knowing you paid thousands of dollars on a Chanel bag that is not authentic.

So, I guess, purchasing Chanel on the internet is not the way to go. If you’re already set on spending thousands of dollars on a handbag why not save a few more thousands for the guarantee of purchasing a fresh, brand new Chanel 2.55 reissue bag. But if you really insist on purchasing a Chanel 2.55 Reissue Bag online here a few tips to consider.

Is Your Chanel 2.55 Reissue Bag Real? 
One thing to consider is that fake Chanel bags can never be a complete replica of the real bags. Why? Because Chanel’s creation and production process is one of a kind, and it’s extremely costly. When buying online, NEVER rely on the pictures.

1) If the price is pretty low on the bag, then it’s most likely too good to be true. The Chanel 2.55 Reissue is a pretty expensive bag. My two year old bag, that I paid $2,500 for, can easily be sold to a consignment store for about $3,000? So, why would anyone in their right mind sell their authentic Chanel 2.55 for $500 on eBay?

2) Before making the transaction, ask for the card of authenticity. This is only a little extra reassurance that you’re walking into a legit purchase. If the seller cannot produce the card then the bag is most likely fake. However, still be vigilant if the card is produced. There are some crafty scammers out there who also make replicas of the authenticity cards. Usually the fake cards have a gold trimming around the edges, so be on the lookout.

3) Ask the seller for the serial number. One the scammers haven’t figured out is how the Chanel serial numbers work. If the seller refuses to provide you with the serial number then the bag is most likely fake. If the seller does provide you with the serial number double check it with the list below.

The serial numbers indicate when a Chanel 2.55 Reissue is being created. Here’s how to test the seller.

Try to match the serial number with the year of the initial purchase that the seller provides you with. If they tell you that the bag was bought this year, but provide you with a 5XXXXXX digit number then he/she is lying. The only Chanel bags with that type of digit were produced from 1997 to 1999.

year-production-6-digits
year-production-7-digits
year-production-8-digits

Final, Most Important Tip
This tip is for all of those who actually go through with purchasing a Chanel bag online. If you have purchased a fake bag, get your money refunded. I know this may seem impossible, but it’s not. If you bought your bag with a credit card, then everything should be just fine.

Credit card companies take fraud very seriously. If you called and told them about your situation it would be easy for you to file for a refund. I actually know from personal experience. There have been a few times where I purchased fake bags online, and within a few days I received the refund.

Credit cards are the best way to purchase online because the companies investigate the matter immediately. Paypal is an okay choice, but they aren’t too vigilant like credit card companies. So always be mindful to use your credit card when purchasing, but that doesn’t mean walk blindly into an online purchase.

Greenwich Gucci Handbags Are a Supple Leather Dream

Categories:Other Brands

It’s my second post of the week, and I get the sneaking suspicion already that this is going to be a Gucci handbags week. Today we have a Gucci Greenwich bag with stirrup in lovely lambskin. The first thing I love about this bag is how soft it is. Goodness, lambskin leather is absolutely divine and it is clear that PV spared no expense sourced top-quality materials on this one. The second thing I love about this bag is how simple it is – it’s luxurious, supple, and elegant without the need for excessive adornments. In other words, it’s a perfect go-to, regular rotation day-bag.

The third thing that I really love about this bag is how it matches the original to a tee. I guess I should expect that though, coming from true experts in replica handbags. And, this bag is only going to get better with age as this leather gets better with time and use (it will gain a warm, matte look). There’ll be no mistaking these Gucci handbags fake – just mistaking them for authentic bags! Check them out right here.
