Website Review: Pursevalley and Poshmoda Shopping Experiences

UPDATED: This is an old post which is being updated to reflect new information! The post was first published in 2012. I just wanted to let everyone know that it has been confirmed that Poshmoda and Pursevalley are connected so if you are wary of one you should be wary of the other! Feel free to share your experiences (good and bad) below shopping through either seller/website. 

Purse Valley Eva Knox Scam

Hey guys!

So I was going to make a purchase from starshandbags.co/pursevalley.cn/poshmoda (they are the same site operated under different names in order to trick people) since they are advertised all over the place however after receiving some emails from several blog readers I decided not to even spend a penny as these sites seem to clearly sell poorly made replicas, and have even scammed people it turns out in many cases. Here is what I have heard:

Hi Angie, I posted this on another site but I thought I’d email you too to let you know. I had ordered 4 purses from pursevalley.com. First, delivery was late. Secondly, the quality is inferior. Third, they didn’t have one of the purses I ordered so they cancelled without informing me. Fourth, I tried to call, email, and use live chat to get authorization to return the purses (they only allow 10 days for returns AND the package has to be mailed to China!) and they will not return my calls or emails. To make it all worse, I ordered 4 purses so I would get a 30% discount but because they cancelled part of my order and only sent 3 purses, I didn’t receive a discount.
The quality of the purses is inferior. I have real Chanel purses and these are not even close. You can buy nicer, cheaper faux purses in L.A. for a fraction of the cost.
I started calling on Jan. 3, 2011, and have called 4 times, emailed 4 times, and tried their “live chat” 4 times. I left my number in each case, and I have yet to receive any correspondence from them. I used a debit card to pay so I am very concerned.
I hope you can put this on your blog to help prevent this from happening to others.

Another email I received said:

Do not waste your time. Pursevalley.co is full of dishonest people say money back guarantee but refuse a refund then cannot get a response from customer service I am out of $640 plus $80 shipping charges for returning their products. I am disgusted and am very careful before I purchase online now because of this experience.

Finally a few other shoppers have mentioned:

Wish I had seen all the negative reviews about pursevalley before I made a $600 purchase. First of all, their shipping is horrible. I ordered stuff for an event coming soon and it’s taking forever to ship. I try to contact customer sevice and they are either very rude (one hung up on me!) or dont reply to the couple emails I sent. they wasted no time at all getting my money. (Should have not send it through western union cos I cant get refunds now). I was decieved by Eva Knox from spot bags because of all her false reviews, no one who does not work for a company will have such high praises in all her posts. I ordered an lv evora from another well known replica company and the service was great and I recieved my bag in no time, Quality was flawless. I still havent recieved my order from purse valley and I have no idea how that will turn out as most of the real reviews I see are negative. I wrote a complaint on the facebook page and they removed it immediately, hence the mostly positive reviews. I’m very sure if they were honest, the negative reviews would bypass the positive by far. Will never purchase from this company again and I hope you tell others not to either.

“I recently ordered a bag from www.ipursevalley.co and it was a really bad quality bag. When I complained, they asked me to send it back which costed me £30 and promising a new bag. The bag arrived but it was broken as soon as I opened it and it was a poor replica of the MM artsy. It did not look anything like the actual bag. Now, they wont give me the money back and want me to spend another £30 to send this broken bag back! I am disappointed and they ripped me off. I would never recommend purse valley or club couture for replica bags!! horrible horrible quality bags!!

I would really like to thank you girls for emailing me before I created a potential headache for myself, and hope that these experiences will help others! This site operates under a lot of aliases so you really need to be careful when you are shopping online to avoid one of their traps! If anyone else has a horrible/amazing experience feel free to email me (with pictures preferably) at [email protected]. I hope this post will serve as a warning to anyone out there who is shopping for a knockoff.

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?

Celine Replica Bags: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

celine-replica-bags-good-bad-ugly-review

When it comes to buying CELINE replica bags you have to be very careful since they are extremely popular at the moment! You could easily fall for what I call replica ugly which is as low as you can go when it comes to buying a fake bag, let alone a fake CELINE. Replica ugly basically refers to the deep waters of fake that nobody wants to be swimming in especially when these bags don’t sell for cheap online (yes even for a fake!). This article will explore the three different qualities and I will review my personal CELINE replica bags showing you how I fell for a mediocre replica and eventually how I ended up finding the best quality of CELINE in the black nano I purchased which I am still in love with till this day! First of all I’d like to note that the CELINE nano is my favorite CELINE model after the trio because it is so petite and functional, and I am personally in a stage in my life where less is more and I think my purse choices are beginning to reflect this personal philosophy.

Anyways lets get back on point. The ugly replica as you can see is pictured first and when you compare it to the third picture a.k.a the good CELINE replica you will shocked and astonished to hear that some people pay for that ugly replica and even consider wearing it. The bag is COMPLETELY off. Everything from the zipper placement, to the dimensions, to the handles, to the logo are done extremely poorly. It can hardly be considered a bare bones replica bag and I think you can guess just as well as I can why that is. I will have to say that when you hear people dissing fakes, it is the ugly replicas that they are most likely referencing as these bags are a shame to the original design and to bag making in general. I think that if you are going to buy a replica you should purchase one that at least respects the original design or don’t even buy it at all as it will quite frankly turn out to be a waste of your money. Ok so I had to do some googling to come across the ugly replica and it is not part of my personal collection but I think right off the bat anyone with any knowledge of CELINE will be able to point out the flaws. First the loose handles completely defy the original CELINE design which is so structured. Secondly the logo has been maximized and looks terrible. The zipper on the bag has been placed too high and makes the bag lose the original CELINE symmetry which adds to the beauty of the bag in my opinion.

The second bag pictured was indeed one I purchased on my own and although it is not an ugly replica it is just a mediocre one and shows that even if you think you know designer bags, you have to be careful with their replica equivalents as there are so many details you need to pay attention to. The second bag is a lot better than the first but the quality of the leather (which is something you have to see in person) is generally poor overall as it has a half plastic feel to it, making me personally doubt whether it is real leather at all. Additionally the dimensions of the handbag are off by a bit (it is supposed to be a nano) and if you can see it has more of a rectangular shape to it than a square shape. This bag is what most replica sites sell and they are good enough to dupe most people into thinking they are authentic CELINEs an expert would be still able to spot the bag as a fake. I have posted detailed photos below for you to take a look at to see all the details, and what the manufacturers missed in making it.

celine-nano-replica

Front view of the bag. This bag is probably around 80% similar to the original CELINE.

celine-nano-replica-bottom

The bottom of the handbag has pegs which a CELINE nano is not supposed to have since it is the tiniest model!

celine-nano-replica-back-of-bag

The bag is of the bag is ok, but you can see the shiny sheen on the leather here which makes the bag look really fake.

celine-stamp-replica

At least they got the stamp on the replica bag right!

celine-zipper-replica-bag

As you can see there is an overall unfinished look the the purse!

inside-celine-bag-replica

The interior stamp is very off compared to the original CELINE design. The good CELINE nano replica I reviewed had an accurate interior stamp.

inside-celine-bag-replica

Although I do not care too much about the interior of a replica bag I want the quality of the materials to be good. this bag had a plastic lining on the inside which was not very good compared to the genuine leather lining of the good nano replica pictured before.

celine-hardware-handle-zipper

The hardware was a bit clunky and large compared to the good CELINE replica and the authentic version of the nano as well, although at least they go the stamp on it!

 

Finally the third bag pictured is the good replica and honestly compared to an authentic CELINE replica it is very hard to tell the difference between the two. Everything from the leather to the interior are on key and right off the bat you can see that the square shape of the CELINE nano is accurately represented in this replica bag. If you want to see a detailed comparison between the third bag and an original CELINE in my original review of the purse you can click here.

Overall the moral of the story is that you have to be careful when shopping for not only CELINE replica purses, but generally all replica purses online as it is easy to end up wasting your money on a poor excuse for a bag! There are good CELINE replicas out there, you just need to make sure you know how to spot one and spend your money right the first time!

Burberry Replica Handbag/Tote Review (hint: it’s beautiful!)

So I very recently purchased a Burberry replica handbag or tote which I am in love with. Burberry is one brand which I personally at least cannot justify buying a real purse from. Especially after I watched this documentary on Youtube in which it showed Burberry deciding to move their production from the UK (where they originated from – they are a British brand for those of you who don’t know) to South Asia. As a business decision this makes a lot of sense as the owners of the company can now make their bags for dirt cheap and enjoy maximum markups. However for the heritage of the brand and in terms of the luxury radar it was a big mistake. Why would anyone in their right mind pay full price for a Burberry purse when you can buy a knockoff made in the same country, and most likely in the same factory for a much lower price? At least companies like Louis Vuitton, Chanel etc. assemble their handbags in Europe to give it that feeling of lux (even though many of their parts come from China as well!). I feel like when I look at the label of a purse and it says “made in China” when I pay over a thousand dollars for it, I have been ripped off in a sense. I personally support true artisanal craft especially when it comes to leather and purses, for which I am weak at the knees, but Burberry has definitely dropped the ball when it comes to the whole luxury factor surrounding their brand. I still can’t get over the part in the video where all the British Burberry craftsmen were worried about remaining unemployed for the rest of their lives after the factory was due to close.

Anyways, due to those reasons and more I will personally NEVER be able to justify purchasing an authentic Burberry handbag, or anything else for that matter! I personally purchased a gorgeous tote with the renowned Haymarket print (for which Burberry actually lost a trademark suit for meaning anyone can use that checkered print they are renowned for – another negative for their luxury image) and am very impressed by the replica bag I have purchased! The bag is more than gorgeous and if you peruse the pictures below you will definitely see why. The canvas weight of the bag is nice and heavy like the authentic pieces (I actually do have 1 authentic vintage Burberry crossbody that was my mom’s and she handed it down to me, so I compared the weight of the two). The finishing are also real leather indicating that the bag is truly a counter quality or superfake model as opposed to the lower quality of fakes which use plastic to finish off the trimmings to reduce costs. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Pursevalley Review on Prada Saffiano Tote – Negative Shopping Experiences

Hey guys! So I just wanted to do a quick review on Pursevalley which is one of the most advertised replica handbag sites out there! Who is it mostly reviewed and fetted by? Evan Knox and her similar cronies (e.g. Hannah Handbags is also owned by Eva Knox who owns Pursevalley). Anyways I personally wouldn’t really care about the fact that Eva Knox owns Pursevalley if it did actually sell what it claims to – the best replica handbags out there – I mean it would be a win win situation for everyone I guess. But unfortunately this claim just does not seem to be true which is where her deception begins to irk myself and many other people out there. It is completely unfair to get people to spend their hard earned dollars on bags which are just simply not as good as truly good replicas out there! So I just want to do a quick comparison between a Prada Saffiano I had purchased from Pursevalley a few years ago when I was pretty new to this whole replica buying process and obviously couldn’t tell the best from the worst, or the in between (boy how that has changed now!). Ok so I really think that the pictures are really the best tell tale sign in terms of pointing out the quality as you can just simply see why Pursevalley is not as good as they claim to be! Maybe if you are an amateur replica purveyor as I once was you may love the bag you get from them at first but for the more trained eye it is obvious on first glance that the bag is a fake! I went with black for the Prada Saffiano as I usually do with a lot of bags since I know that they just can’t get it wrong in terms of color (which is a common worry for anyone out there that buys replicas). But aside from the color the quality of the hardware, the leather in itself, and all the small details that are supposed to make the bag feel special just aren’t there! I have added a lot of pictures below for anyone who is interested to take a look at! I just think it is unfair that Eva portrays PV as the best when it is clearly not. I am happy to say that I have outgrown Pursevalley and Eva Knox’s faux blog Spotbags.cn generally but I know that there are many people out there who are still being duped which is why I was inspired to write this post in the first place! Ok so enough chit chat let’s get into the details of what makes a good fake or good replica handbag a good one vs. what makes a poor replica handbag a poor one! authentic prada saffiano black doublezip tote gold hardwareOk so this is my awesome Saffiano. Let me tell you that this replica Prada Saffiano is the bees knees! I got it very recently and was floored by how authentic the handbag was in comparison to all the beauties I had seen in the Prada store! Now take a look at the next picture which is the Prada Saffiano I had initially purchased from Pursevalley. prada saffiano black doublezip tote replica authentic vs fakeCan you tell which bag is the better fake or replica? Let me give you a hint look at the sheen of the leather on the bag – that is a big giveaway as to what quality of a replica handbag you have just picked up or ordered! Alright so if you guess the one on top is the horrible fake while the one on bottom is the superfake (meaning it is an awesome fake and as close to the real as you can get out of China) then you are RIGHT! As I mentioned before all you really have to do is just take a quick glance at the leather. The leather on the top bag is so dull, and I am not sure if it is even really real leather but the one on the bottom has that sheen which Prada Saffiano’s that are authentic are known to have! I paid a bit more for the one on the bottom but compared to the original price, and the fact that I will own the bag for life it is a steal!

More pictures of the really bad Prada Saffiano replica handbag from Pursevalley which you can see seems to have been put together quite hastily by whatever factory produced it! I will be donating this fake bag to Goodwill as I am definitely not wearing it out ever again, and am quite frankly upset that I ever did now that I realize how poor the quality truly is!

The two bags side by side! It really is super hard not to notice the very clear difference in quality between the two replica bags as one looks like a joke compared to the other one – quite literally!

Last but not least a picture of the inside of the bad fake which had a poorer interior lining as well compared to the superfake Prada which has a much better lining as well!

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!

REP-A-PORTER Review – Black Prada Saffiano Replica Knockoff

So I purchased from REP-A-PORTER after they relaunched since I always heard good things about their Prada bags. What do I think of the bag now that it is here? It is actually a pretty good replica. The leather feels good, and the inside of the bag is nicely done as well. I remember reading somewhere that you can judge a replica handbag by its interior quality. I agree with this statement since every replica handbag I have purchased which turned out to be a piece of c-r-a-p looked disgusting inside. But every decent replica I have bought has had an interior which matches the exterior’s quality. Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think.

The customer service of REP-A-PORTER was better than other replica sites I have dealt with since they at least knew English. I had to pay with Western Union which I have gotten used to now that I have bought over 3 replica handbags. I think you just really have to know where you are shopping. After owning both real handbags and replicas I have to say that finding a good replica is like hitting a small lottery win since you know how much you have saved from the authentic. Here is a link to their website: www.repaporter.com

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!
