Spot Replica Louis Vuitton Bags: Authentic vs. Replica Monogram Totally Buying Guide

authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv1

Pictured is the Louis Vuitton replica bag I will be comparing to the authentic model. Please keep in mind there is a size difference between the two as one is a PM, while the other is an MM. Can you guess which is the fake handbag and which is the real?

I have compiled pictures to compare my replica Louis Vuitton Totally MM bag in monogram canvas to an original (albeit used) for resale on Fashionphile. I purchased my handbag for approximately $279 USD with free shipping included (from Designer Discreet) over 2 years ago while the handbag on Fashionophile is listed for resale at $1,150 USD. The bag’s condition is listed as:

Item Condition: Preowned – Very Good

Exterior: patina of vachetta, wear on piping trim, light corner wear, light surface wear

Handle: patina, surface wear, small marks, light water marks, light scratches

Interior: small minor marks on main section, ink marks and wear in side panel pockets

Hardware: scratches

I have really used and abused my replica Totally MM bag as I have taken it on several vacations where it has primarily served as a beach bag and has bared more than its fare share of the brunt of my travels (I am not sure about you guys but I tend to be very careless on vacations and so I never take any authentic purses with me!). Anyways the bag has held up very well considering all of the abuse it has gone through under my care and the patina has shaped out quite nicely as well. I  hope this post helps those who are looking to buy an authentic purse avoid getting a fake in its place as we all know Ebay and the online world are generally quite notorious for that, and even our most favorite of consignment shops can slip in a fake here or there (these services are run by humans after all)! Take a look at the photographs before to picture the differences between the authentic vs. replica Louis Vuitton Totally MM, and let me know whether you’d go fake or real in the comments below for this particular Louis Vuitton! I would personally go for the fake as the differences are really nonexistent between the two as shown by the photos!

This is the Fashionphile listing for the authentic purse. The handbag is selling for $1,150 USD + free domestic shipping within the United States. The bag is alright overall in terms of condition based on the photographs but definitely looks used.

Starting with a sideshot of the handbag the differences are not very pronounced between the two. The only key difference that shows through some replicas is the stitching which is not to bad on this replica bag.

The bottoms of both the bags are identical except for which pattern falls to the centre where the stitch occurs. This is where the size difference’s importance comes in as the bag on the right (the authentic) is a PM which is a smaller size so the stitch pattern falls at a different placed. If you take a look at the authentic Totally MM I have pictured below the comparison photo you will notice that the alignment is the same as the replica as both have the Logo cut through and the stitch occur between the two.

The tags of both the replica bag and the authentic bag are not too far off. Louis Vuitton’s fonts have been known to variate slightly throughout the years so the two are quite comparable. The color of the thread on the tag of the authentic purse (pictured right) is less vibrant and more dull compared to the replica and the stitching is a bit more well done I will say. In person however this difference is quite negligible as I have walked into the Louis Vuitton store many times with my replica handbag on pictured on the left.  authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv comparison inside of the bag

Last but not leas is the interior of both handbags which is virtually the same (the lighting variance on both photos may make both look a bit different but I have compared the interior to my authentic Louis Vuitton handbags and it is not too far off.

Overall the canvas of the handbags are the same which I will say is one of the most important qualities you should be on the watch for if you are looking to purchase a replica Louis Vuitton bag as it is the biggest giveaway. If the replica manufacturers improve the stitching of the bag to a finer degree I personally believe it will be extremely difficult to tell between the two purses at all as that I will say is what can really separate the two when it comes to the nitty gritty details. Other than that however it is very hard for the average Joe or Jane to decipher between the two! Once again let me know what you think in the comments below!

The Classic Louis Vuitton Handbag Reference Guide!

lv-neverfull-replica

Oh Louis! How many hearts have your handbags captured? Millions I am sure, and that is exactly why LV is one of the brands a person automatically associates with luxury. But who can help it? That classic monogram logo, and the timeless style of the brand make it irresistible, and deservingly so! This reference guide will go through the most popular LV styles and give some tips on what to watch for when in the market for a used or replica Louis Vuitton. The guide may be updated on an ongoing basis as new information is gained! 🙂

Neverfull: The Neverfull comes in 3 sizes (PM, MM, and GM) and is the quintessential Louis handbag. It comes in both the classic designs (Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene, and Damier Azur), recent collections (e.g. the Epi leather version, or the recent Summer 2013 collection) as well as more limited designs. If you are in the market for your first Louis Vuitton handbag you can never go wrong with a Neverfull as its versatility and function is truly top notch. The varying sizes means it can accommodate both small and large needs, while maintaining that effortless cool! Make sure to pay attention to the dimensions when shopping for an LV as that is a dead giveaway indicating whether the handbag is “fake”. Additionally the straps on a Neverfull (or any Louis in general) are very important as their quality can also be a giveaway. Make sure the straps are not overly flimsy or of low quality trimmings! The quality of the canvas is also important but it is easier to spot flaws in that and make sure to pay close attention! Additionally the actual canvas print is crucial and make sure it matches the authentic to a tee!

Replica Handbags Review # 1: Bassaboutique.com (UPDATED)

Well girls this is one site I have used to buy handbags from so far and here is my review of it:

1. Website Usability: The website design actually looks nice for a change (usually replica handbag sites have quite ugly layouts if I do say so myself). It seems professional and all the categories are laid out effectively and are simple to use.

2. Selection/Variety of Bags: They have handbags from all the top designers that a person could be looking for and even has some of the newer popular ones like Proenza Schouler. One disadvantage though is that the individual handbags in the categories do not have titles so when searching for a LV Galleria you literally have to look through all the pages to find it.

3. Order Process/Customer Service: Although they do not take Paypal they do have an agreement with Alertpay which is just as trustworthy. The company itself does not gain any of your credit card information but it is all processed safely through AlertPay. When I contacted the company through [email protected] they responded within a day and were very willing and helpful. They could also speak proper English which is quite a highlight. In terms of shipping the product arrived within 8 days after I ordered it through EMS. The shipping was free so that was definitely a bonus.

4. Quality: I had ordered a LV Azur Speedy, and it came with a dustbag and authentication card. It is pretty good quality, as it made of cowskin leather and there are no flaws in terms of the logo symbol being cut off (a clear indicator that it is a fake). The leather is also nice and heavy and not flimsy at all. As you guys know I like to order up a mix of real and fake handbags so I compared it to my real LV Cherry Speedy. I have posted pictures below to show the comparison!

5. Image Comparison: The bag does look just like the pictures they had posted, and one other advantage of ordering from this site is that a refund is guaranteed if the product does not look like the picture/description.

UPDATE: Hey guys this site is out of service now, I had heard from many people that their service begun becoming shady and unreliable and they would send horrible products to consumers but the site has now been shut down luckily so nobody else will get ripped off!
