Can You Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Bag? Authentic vs. Replica Louis Vuitton Neverfull Comparison

louis-vuitton-neverfull-authentication-guide-fake-vs-real

One bag is a GM (the one on the left with the white background) while the other is an MM so please keep that difference in mind while reading this guide!

Louis Vuitton is and always will be one of the most wanted designer brands out there! The Neverfull bag specifically is one of their most famous bags – celebs and fashionistas from all walks of life have shown their love for the bag. I personally love the Neverfull because it is one of the most functional bags in my wardrobe – it is big and fits EVERYTHING! Especially if you go for the bag in its largest size – the GM! This handbag review will compare an authentic Louis Vuitton Neverfull Mimosa bag to a replica version of the same bag. So can you tell off the bat which is fake? Whether your answer is yes or no scroll down below to see if you’re right!

louis-vuitton-neverfull-authentication-guide-fake-vs-real-2

1) Look at the canvas quality of the bag

This is a hard difference to spot between these 2 bags since the canvas quality is on point for the replica, but a bad knockoff will have a plastic-y feel to the canvas material. The canvas refers to the monogrammed brown material used for the body of the bag.

2) Look at the stitching of the bag at the sides & underneath the bag

Once again the replica bag featured in this post is of a very high quality so it is hard to notice a major flaw, but make sure that the side of the bag’s stitching aligns. The shapes on the Monogram Canvas should also align on the sides of the bag. If you spot poor or spotty stitching, or stitching that is very loose quickly then you most likely have a bad fake on your hands. Looking underneath the bag is very important as many replica sellers get lazy when it comes to the bottom of a bag and cut corners on a spot they think most people don’t pay attention to so make sure you peek underneath!

3) Look inside the bag to see the quality of the lining

As mentioned before replica sellers often cut corners on areas they perceive to be less important on a bag such as the interior so make sure to look inside your potential purchase before spending any money! The interior of a Louis Vuitton neverfull is a cotton lining that is sturdy. Make sure to pay attention to the lining print and the pocket where the Louis Vuitton logo is printed. If anything looks off or the logo looks funny you may have a fake on your hands. The interior of the authentic bag in this case has a bit of a cleaner look around the seams of the bottom however other than that the two interiors look virtually identical.

louis-vuitton-neverfull-authentication-guide-fake-vs-real-5

4) Look inside the bag to see the stamping

One final think you can take a look at in order to determine whether your bag is fake or real is to take a look at the stamping on the interior label of the bag (which is on the pocket on the inside). Not only should you inspect the stitching around the label but you should also look at the way the words are stamped. If you see the T’s connect in “VUITTON” or if you see poor stamping quality this may indicate you have a fake. The replica bag pictured above is of a high quality (or it can be considered a superfake) so once again it is hard to spot these issues on that specific bag.


So how did you do? Did you easily figure out which bag was the fake? Well if you haven’t by now it was the one of the right hand side of the screen (the bag with the darker pictures/non-white background). This bag is actually a very good replica (a superfake or counter quality replica) so the tips given in this article don’t necessarily apply, but most replica bags out there are not superfakes so you will be able to easily spot these flaws. I hope this guide is helpful for either a replica buyer looking to buy a copy of the Louis Vuitton neverfull handbag (so they know how to purchase a top quality bag) as well as anyone looking to buy an authentic and wanting to make sure they don’t get duped into paying the authentic price tag for a knockoff Louis Vuitton!  Feel free to comment below and let me know whether you’d go authentic or fake for this Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag!

Replica Bags on IOFFER – How NOT to Buy Replicas from Them!

Hi y’all.

I received an email review from a lovely blog reader named Helen who had her first replica shopping experience on IOFFER and let’s just say it didn’t turn out pretty. Helen is a novice shopper and this was the first time she ever bought a fake or replica bag. At first she was impressed with her replicas when she got them even going as so far as to recommend IOFFER to other readers on the blog. But a few months in things started to fall apart – literally her bag and wallet turned out to be replica duds and Helen has some words of wisdom to share with her fellow replica shoppers (including you and I) out there! Here is what she had to say (with photos to follow):

I paid $50 for the bag and $10 for the wallet, in this case I got what I paid for.  This is the epitome of what a fake really looks like. Made out of cheap smelly material. I don’t remember where I answered someone’s question about wanting help in finding a good site to buy a good quality LV bag and I answered by recommending ioffer. Big mistake I take back my recommendation in purchasing women’s LV bags from this site. I’m hoping the question was from your blog and if so I hope she reads this comment.

Helen followed up with a second email to send me photos and had this to add on:

Hi Angie,

I am going to start all over and send you 13 photos again because I don’t know which ones you received and which ones you didn’t and last time I did it through my phone but this time I’m going to send it through my computer which will be better in sending photos.

I had bought several LV bags from ioffer but from 2 different sellers. The photos I am sending you the LV Metis and the double zipper wallet are both from seller: “gagamall”. I had also bought men’s wallet and the set of 4 cosmetic bags from this seller but those weren’t too bad for the money spent. I had also bought another LV Neo bag from a different seller from ioffer but haven’t gotten that bag yet but from this experience not going to expect a good quality bag I’ll let you know how it turns out as soon as I get it. Even though there are allot of different sellers on ioffer, I think they are all using the same stock photos from someplace other than their own photos. In other words the photos you see of all LV bags are fake on ioffer.

Louis Vuitton Babylone PM Mahina Leather Replica Review

louis vuitton babylone pm mahina replica authentic

Ok so it is time for me to officially share my FAVORITE and most stunning replica Louis Vuitton bag purchase this month. As you all may already know I previously shared that I kinda went all out on LV bags this month and I have saved the best for last in terms of reviews – what is it? It is the Louis Vuitton Babylone PM in Mahina leather. I have always been a fan of the Mahina leather but last time I tried to purchase a Selene replica (totally love that model too) but the leather was way too overly plastic-y and the bag was totally off, and left me feeling like a compete faker carrying it. So surely enough that bag hardly saw any light of day and I dropped it off to a thrift store about 2 years ago, and that was the end of that.

Ever since then I have always thought that Mahina leather was something replica sellers would never perfect and I would simply be stuck dropping money on an authentic one from a Louis Vuitton boutique. The Babylone PM costs a pretty penny at the LV store coming in at $4,100.00 USD. Back when I was totally into buying authentics I would usually do a bag two times a year – one for my birthday and one for Christmas. With prices like this you can totally understand why! Anyways when I first saw the Babylone PM on Counterlux I was like OMG I have to have it. But then memories of the Selene crept back to me and I realized maybe this bag is simply too good to be true – even though the pictures on the site showcased the depth of the leather pretty well. After emailing back and forth with the site’s customer service I decided to take the plunge and order this model (unfortunately DD did not have this one in their catalog which is where I got my other LV bags this month from). Why do I love the Mahina leather series so much? Well I think it is so sophisticated, dare I say even more so than the canvas series because the LV logo is not as prominent and so much more subtle!

The bag took about two weeks to arrive to my apartment, and once I opened up the parcel I was in total disbelief and beyond happy in how good replicas have become! I mean if you could see and feel the leather of this bag in person you would be in awe as well. I have taken some photos of the bag and done my best to try and showcase the quality below! As far as replica Louis Vuitton bags, and replica bags in general go this bag is a 10/10 when you take into consideration everything including the hardware, leather etc. These are the kind of replica bags that get returned to the boutiques and dupe sales associates! Take a look at my pics (although note my camera went weird causing different looking shades in some pics) and let me know what you think in the comments

Neverfull MM Neo Mimosa Replica Review

Hey guys!

I had a bit of a Louis Vuitton replica haul this last month … my excuse: I was treating myself for the New Year (2016 bring it on) … that is justifiable right? Well anyways I bought a few bags from Designer Discreet – all of them Louis Vuitton. I have already done a review on a comparison between the Favorite from them vs. a cheaper replica I got elsewhere to identify the quality which you should totally read if you haven’t already because I think it really portrays the difference between a good replica and a “meh” replica in depth – photos are worth a thousand words after all! I will be posting all of my haul in the upcoming days on the blog, and as a precursor I must say I am really impressed by how accurate the replica makers are becoming – the quality between my bags I have receiving lately are crazy good – and I mean crazy good!

Anyways back to my Neverfull MM. I absolutely love the Neo Mimosa series and my favorite interior lining is the yellow – I love the pop of color it gives, but the fuschia interior is also beautiful as well! I honestly plan to buy every color of the Mimosa series because I think that the Neverfull is such a functional bag and hey when they are replicas at a fraction of the cost – why not right? So I was super impressed with the bag and I think you will be too once you see the photos below … take a look and let me know what you think!

The authentication card + care pamphlet.

The canvas is nice and firm and can stand up on its own with a counter quality replica. Cheaper replicas are usually very flimsy!

MUST READ: Good Fakes VS. Bad Ones: Louis Vuitton Replica Guide

Can you spot the better replica? Hint: look at the overall composition of the two bags. They may not look overly different but the symmetry is more accurate in the left bag than the right one. 

Hello y’all!

This post will serve as a very important guide to anyone looking to buy a knockoff or replica bag for the first time for any brand, even though the focus will be on Louis Vuitton in this particular post. The points made however are applicable when shopping for any brand out there so pay close attention especially if it is your first time you may be purchasing a fake bag!

Anyone who has bought a fake or replica bag out there knows that we are bombarded with many claims of various qualities and it seems like every replica seller in town has the best purse if we listen to their claims. But the truth is that there is a tiered system of quality when it comes to replicas and I would say as an educated guess after buying so many for so many years that the tiers are roughly 3 levels. On the third bottom rung is the super disgusting and really really bad knockoffs that never deserve to see the light of day on anyone’s arm or shoulder (yet they still unfortunately do – we’ve all seen one). These are the bags that give replica bags a bad rep and make people think rightfully so that they’d rather be caught dead than wearing a replica purse. However if you are a seasoned replica purchaser you will have most likely come across the second tier as well. The second tier is in the middle – the bags aren’t bad, they get about 75-80% of the original right and they can pass for a fairly decent fake. These were the kind of bags I myself bought when I first dabbled in replica shopping.

But the third first is where it is at my friends if you are looking for quality. This is the tier that exceeds the 90% zone in terms of accuracy and can please even the nittiest of buyers. This is the only type of replica I personally buy as I like to collect bags and these are pretty much as good as the originals in my opinions. Do all brands come in all 3 tiers? I’m not sure and can’t answer this with 100% accuracy but from my purchasing experience most of the popular brands are covered in all 3 tiers. In this post I will compare what I think is a 1st tier replica Louis Vuitton Favorite in Monogram Canvas (which I bought from Designer  Discreet) with a 2nd tier Louis Vuitton Favorite in Monogram Canvas (I bought this one a long time ago from a replica seller through email). I didn’t bother buying a 3rd tier for the comparison as you can simply use your imagination to come up with how ugly the bag in that tier looks.

As you can see the replica on the left side has a nice sheen to it like the authentic Louis Vuitton purses while the bag on the right is more dull.

A closeup of the bag on the right. The quality of the canvas is certainly not bad – but not as good the one on the right.

Top down is where a difference is totally visible. Just taking quick look at the two bags can help one see that the one on the left is superior to the one on the right. The overall composition and structure of the bag is very on point with the original LV.

The canvas is very vibrant on this replica and the stitching is very well done making it a 1st tier or counter quality replica.

Once again a more lux sheen can be observed on the bag to the left.

The chain is more faded for the 2nd tier replica while the 1st tier replica is nice and vibrant and gold!

Louis Vuitton Totally GM Review (Replica Handbag)

I have already done a comparison between the replica Louis Vuitton Totally GM handbag I recently purchased, and an authentic handbag of the same model for you guys to get an idea of how the two compared since it is often hard to really understand without a clear visual. If you are interested you can click here to read that article! In order to accompany that comparison I thought I would upload some more detailed pictures for those interested to get a good look at the handbag. It is overall a good replica although if I could change anything about it would be the interior cotton lining which I feel could have been done just a bit better! I have a Totally MM in Monogram Canvas I previously purchased which has a better interior lining so I am not sure if I just got unlucky this time? Anyways it is not really a big deal since the bag is overall well done, and the interior is always the last of my worries when I shop for a replica as long as it is decent!

One tip I will give anyone who wants to buy a good replica Louis Vuitton is that you should pay most attention to canvas quality of the handbag as that is the key defining distinction between a good replica and a bad one especially in the case of Louis Vuitton since their coated canvas bags are the most popular. Many years ago I purchased a Damier Azur Neverfull that had a very weak canvas material that kept falling over when I put the bag down, but the authentic Louis Vuitton’s have a stiffer canvas that do not act that way so please keep this in mind when you are shopping! The bag came with all the bells and whistles of a good replica including the authenticity card, pamphlets, dustbag, box etc. (even though I don’t really usually care about those accessories personally, but I can see why they would be nice to have especially if you were giving the bag as a gift to someone). Take a look at the photos below if you want to get a good detailed look at the replica version of this particular Louis Vuitton handbag and let me know what you think in the comments – is it a good fake or would you go authentic for this handbag?

Louis Vuitton Noe BB Replica Review

louis vuitton replica noe side

My lovely Louis Vuitton Noe BB replica

Hey guys in this post I will be reviewing my replica Louis Vuitton Noe BB handbag. I purchased the purse in Damier Azur for my summer vacation last year when I visited both Europe and Turkey and thought it would be the perfect go to bag when I was visiting the various tourist destinations because of its small size. Anyways unfortunately I damaged the bottom of my bag by spilling my skin toner bottle on the inside which leaked to the bottom of the bag and damaged the cowhide trimmings.The funniest story I actually ever heard about a damaged bag (although many might argue it is cringeworthy) was from a blog reader that told me  that her dog chewed up her Louis Vuitton which was actually authentic – that must have been a definite ouch in the wallet and heart! However I think that once the bag patinas out it will look half decent again as once the color is darker on the trimmings it will be hard to notice the damage at all! The bag was a really good replica I would say as the canvas quality and leather cowhide trimmings were both of the original quality.

How could I tell this? You can feel a good weight to the canvas on authentic Louis Vuitton bags, and many replicas do not have this heaviness but instead are super light and flimsy. This is the difference between a good and bad replica. Another sign of a good replica is that the bag kind of keeps it’s form on its own and does not simply down right away once you place the handbag down. Most replicas do not keep their form, so you have to know what to shop for online or in person (which is obviously easier) to look for a good knockoff. Anyways aside from the stain the quality of the bag is actually pretty good!

One thing which I noticed on this bag that most Louis Vuitton replica handbags lack is the accuracy of the trimmings. A lot of Louis Vuitton replica bags have a red lacquer which is more of a bright red used to finish off the edges. Louis Vuitton used to use this finish back in the day so it is not deadly to buy a replica bag with this kind of trimming, but it is always nicer to have the latest method of production used on your bag. What Louis Vuitton does now is use more of a matte brown seal on the sides of the cowhide trimmings for the handles and you can see in the pictures below that the Noe I am reviewing does indeed have the dull brown trimmings as opposed to the red.

Overall aside from the damage I inflicted upon the handbag myself, I would rate the bag a 9/10 on the replica scale as it has all the key details down, and the stitching is well done without the bright yellow look of many Louis Vuitton replica threads. A tip for anyone with a damaged Louis Vuitton bag similar to mine is to use olive oil on the trimmings and then place the bag out in the sun to help the patina process speed up a bit. I will try this trick myself and post updated photos once the look of the bag improves a bit! Let me know what you think of the bag in the comments below and whether you have personally ruined any of your Louis Vuitton or designer handbags (real or fake).

Can you spot the damage at the bottom? I am praying the patina will even out the color and make it noticeable.

Replica Louis Vuitton Bags: Is it Hard to Buy them Online?

chatwithus1

Louis Vuitton is arguably the most copied bag in the world meaning there are many replica Louis Vuitton bags out there! This makes it even more challenging however when you are thinking of buying a knockoff as it means you have your work cut out for you in terms of finding a good replica Louis Vuitton. In this article I will compare and review a replica Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Totally to an authentic Louis Vuitton Damier Azur going over key tips to guide when you are shopping online! Take a look at the photo above! Can you spot the fake right off the bat or did it take you a few moments to compare the two? It can be really tough for buyers to decipher between real and fake nowadays due to the improving standards of replica bag manufacturers. If the first thing you looked at were the handles of the bag and noticed a color difference, do not let yourself be fully thrown off! The handles on the bag pictured on the left side have been patina’d which means they have oxidized due to exposure.

Louis Vuitton handbags are made with cowhide trimmings which naturally patina over time, giving the handles a darker look. When you buy a brand new Louis Vuitton (real or fake) it should look like the bag on the right where the handles are very light and untampered with. If you buy a used bag you can expect the handbag to have a patina’d handle(s), and if it doesn’t that is a warning sign that is a) fake, and b) a really bad fake. Anyways back to the initial question: could you tell which bag was the knockoff? If you guessed the bag on the left with the darker handles you are wrong, and if you guessed the bag on the right with the lighter handles you are right! Let’s take a look into the differences between the two bags. One note I would like to make is that the handbag pictured on the right is one of the best Louis Vuitton replicas available out there, and so if you are looking for one this would be as close to the real deal as you can get without buying an authentic handbag.

damier-azur-totally-fake-vs-real-replica-vs-authentic1

The bottom of both handbags are equivalent and there is no difference at all that would cause one to second guess the authenticity of the bag. The only difference is that the bag on the left which is used has lost some of its shape and become a bit more “loose” unlike the handbag on the right which has yet to be used. This loose-ness is not a factor in authenticity in this case however!

damier-azur-totally-fake-vs-real-replica-vs-authentic

A side view of both handbags once again showing no noticeable difference between the two handbags. The handles of the used authentic bag are a bit more stretched out and worn out compared to the replica handbag on the right.

damier-azur-totally-fake-vs-real-replica-vs-authentic2

Once again the biggest difference I would say Louis Vuitton replica handbags have from their authentic counterparts is the stitching quality. If you take a look on the bag on the left it is just a bit more well done than that of the one on the right which is not sewn in as deep. Other than that the tags are generally comparable.

damier-azur-totally-fake-vs-real-replica-vs-authentic3

The interior of both of the handbags are shown here. The light was a bit dark when I was trying to photograph the replica LV so sorry about that folks. You still get a general idea though and the interiors are fairly comparable. The interiors of replica handbags are one thing which I don’t usually sweat about as long as it is a quality interior and good enough to hold my stuff. However if something is off here or there it does not really matter in comparison to the total design so I would suggest you don’t sweat about it either!

Let me know what you think of the Totally replica bag in the comments below. Was a good fake or was it easy for you to spot?

Spot the Fake Louis Vuitton Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM! An Authentic vs. Replica Buying Guide

Chiara_Ferragni_for_Louis_Vuitton_Soft_Lockit_handbag_campaign2Chiara_Ferragni_for_Louis_Vuitton_Soft_Lockit_handbag_campaign5

With the likes of Chiara Ferragni carrying the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit, it’s no surprise that this particular Louis Vuitton is very popular currently as a replica bag as well! I am personally a huge fan of Chiara Ferragni and love her blog The Blonde Salad where her awesome style is showcased. Unlike Ms. Ferragni who has first and free dibs on most luxury handbags (her prominence in the fashion blogger world cannot be denied!) most ladies (and gentlemen) like myself do not have such access, so sometimes a replica bag will do for me (and many others). The replica LV Soft Lockit I purchased was of very high quality and can be described as a superfake designer bag or a counter quality replica handbag. If you examine the photographs you will see that this is one bag that is virtually identical to the original of the same make by the authentic Louis Vuitton factories. The original price of the bag is over $4,000 USD on the official Louis Vuitton boutique’s ecommerce website but I purchased the handbag for only $389 USD which is a steal if you think about it! Sometimes when I see the extremely high prices on some models like the Soft Lockit I have a feeling Louis Vuitton is really overcharging, but that may just be a matter of opinion. Anyways take a look at the pictures below and let me know in the comments whether you’d go authentic or replica for this Louis Vuitton handbag!

LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM fashionphile

This is the original listing of the purse I have used for comparison in this review/article.

LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM fake vs real comparison

The handbag on the right is my replica Louis Vuitton handbag while the handbag on the left is an authentic Soft Lockit up for resale on the consignment website Fashionphile. Could you spot the fake right away or did you pause for a moment?

LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM fake vs real logo front of bag1

The logo of the replica handbag is pictured on the left while the logo stamp of the authentic is pictured on the right. The logos of both purses are well done but I have to say that if I were to judge based off this photo solely the stamp on the replica (left picture) actually looks sharper and more well done than that of the authentic purse pictured on the right.

fake vs real LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM tag inside bag

The interior tag of both handbags. Which one do you think is the tag on the fake bag? The one on the left? No that is actually the authentic Louis Vuitton handbag’s tag. The tag pictured on the right is that of the replica bag, and as you can see it has one more detail on the stamp which is the location the handbag was produce in which is France in this case.

fake vs real LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM inside the bag

The interiors of the two handbags are both suede although the picture on the left which shows the authentic handbag’s interior shows a more used suede hence why it is almost slightly pilling. My replica handbag is fairly new in comparison so the suede does not show any wear at all. The interior is smooth to the touch and actually my preferred interior type for a handbag – I usually hate the cotton lining most Louis Vuitton models have and think the suede is more of a lux feel generally.

fake vs real LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM bottom of bagThe bottom of the handbags are virtually identical and there is no honestly no visible difference between the authentic or replica handbag in this case. The four silver pegs at the bottom of the bag are awesome as they really do help prevent the handbag from getting dirty at all. If you own a designer handbag it is very likely that a pet peeve of yours will be the bottom getting dirty!

fake vs real LOUIS VUITTON Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM side shot bag

Lastly the back of both handbags are pictured! The back of each bag is virtually identical as well as there is nothing to differentiate between the two.

One thing I would like to note is that when you are shopping for the Soft Lockit as a replica, if you choose to do so, make sure you buy one that is a good quality replica. Most websites sell AAA handbags which are either half leather half plastic or fully plastic and it does not do any justice to the original Louis Vuitton model. The handbag I purchased is one of the most accurate Louis Vuitton replicas I have purchased yet and since it is a recent model I guess we can assume that the manufacturers are getting more and more sophisticated everyday!

Sound off in the comments below and let me know what you think of the comparison and the style of the Soft Lockit as I personally think it comes off as a love it or hate it kind of bag!

Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Replica Handbag Review

Hey guys! So I bought the LV Soft Lockit in the darker beige/camel-ish color tone (not sure of the official name) from Designer Discreet (their website is www.designer-discreet.cn) and it turned out beautiful! The leather is very soft and you can definitely tell that the quality is up there in terms of replicas. The interior is actually genuine suede as well, and the stampings are generally on point! The only thing I will say is that the hardware (as with all replicas) is not as substantial as my authentic bags but nonetheless this is not something that you can really spot visually, and is more of a weight/feel thing. I have yet to see ANY replica bag that has hardware comparable to the authentic except one C****L bag I bought a while ago which was a lucky shot I guess. Anyways I have posted the photos below. Let me know what you guys think of the bag in the comments!
