Chanel Real VS Replica Identification Guide

chanel jumbo flap real vs fake replica vs authentic guide

Can you tell which is real and which is fake? Keep in mind the lighting makes the bags colors look slightly different but both are equally black in person!

Hey guys!

I just wanted to do a quick post sharing what to look for when shopping for a Chanel handbag to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck when shopping for an authentic or fake new, or used, or replica purse. Firstly I’d like to start off by saying Chanel is a very hard to find replica as the parent company actively seeks out any replica sellers who sell their products (and when you see the superfakes you will understand why) as they want to stop the devaluation train for Chanel. This is completely fair and I would do the same if I were Chanel as well.

I do however want to start with a few gripes I have with them, as a Chanel purse lover. Firstly dear Chanel why do you no longer coat your hardware with 24k gold? As a serious Chanel lover and collector I can say that there is a significant decline in quality within the Chanel brand over the years as they seemed to have lowered their production standards. I highly recommend well kept vintage bags that have the gold coating as these bags are in my opinion from a Chanel era in which quality was at the top of their priorities. Anyways enough chit chat. This guide is meant to give you a glimpse at a comparison between an authentic and replica Chanel with tips for spotting fake bags which have been very poorly constructed.

One thing I would like to say before providing this information is that Chanel replica manufacturers have been getting increasingly accurate to the point that I have heard many stories about fake Chanels being returned to authentic boutiques, which is really scary if you are dropping a couple of thousands on what you hope will be a real bag. Overall remember to be vigilant even if shopping in an authentic boutique! Take a look at the guide, and I hope it helps everyone out there!

When looking at the first photo I am sure a lot of people were confused – aren’t both bags real? Well they aren’t. These pictures feature a superfake Chanel being compared to an authentic so the subtleties are more minute and harder to spot, but I thought it would be worth showing! I will do another guide soon that outlines the really bad Chanel fakes I encourage you to burn if you see in person, on the spot, since they totally misconstrue the beauty of the originals, and are a total disgrace to Miss Coco’s designs.

The replica looks a bit more “puffy” since it is newer compared to the used jumbo pictured right. Overly puffy bags are a sign of a fake Chanel however this comes down to the number of stitches! All Chanel bags (authentic and superfake) look a bit more puffy (but not overly) when new because they haven’t been subjected to the use and abuse of being worn on a daily basis! I’ll add a picture of the superfake Chanel jumbo once it has reached a point of use comparable to the authentic bag on the right!

A shot of the bottom of the bags. Make sure if you are shopping for a jumbo that there is a stitch down the middle otherwise you are dealing with a terrible fake.

The interior C’s are very important! In very poor Chanel replicas you will see very strange stitching that is either too skinny or too fat. The bag on the right is an authentic Chanel’s stitching while the bag on the left is a superfake that gets it close enough (the camera’s angle for the photo makes it look a little strange however).

Depending on the production period of the bag a lighter or darker interior can be expected. What you should pay attention to inside the flap is the leather quality – if it seems fake or non-genuine leather then you are dealing with a bad replica my friends.

The interior hologram sticker is always a give away with a replica. Make sure to really pay attention to this if shopping on auction sites for a used authentic purse as the Chinese models usually have a standard number (10218184) that they use. However I have heard of cases of custom stickers being printed so once again be vigilant!

The hardware on the right is that of an authentic bag. The one on the left is the hardware of the superfake. As you can see both are equally well done. The heaviness of the hardware is a key giveaway to the authenticity of the bag. Once again many vintage pieces are coated with real gold for authentic Chanels, however their newer lines are not, and no replicas are coated with gold.

fashionophile ad chanel jumbo black double flap

The fashionphile ad I used to compare the replica and authentic. As you can see the bag is going for $5250 on fashionphile, while the supefake cost 1/10th of that.

Overall I hope this guide is helpful and makes everyone a wiser shopper when looking for Chanel whether it be online or in person as you are looking to drop down a lot of money on these beauties so make sure it is worth it!

Prada Saffiano Replica Wallet Review

Hey guys it’s been a while since I have posted! I got super busy with work and life, but my purse and designer addiction never left me and I have been collecting more beauties (both real and fake) to add to my collection! I’ll be sharing them all with you guys over the next little while and wanted to start with a wallet that I am completely in love with right now. I am a hot pink girl. I know … a lot of people are not into pink, but I embrace it. Especially during the fall and winter seasons – I think it really adds a nice color pop to an otherwise boring or neutral outfit (which is how I tend to dress when the weather is chillier).

A shot from the side – you can see the zipper lining and quality is very high as well – you just have to know what to look for when shopping for a replica!

A super close-up of the saffiano leather and stitching – both well done!

As you guys probably already know I have seen a lot of very very bad saffiano replicas out there – both in terms of bags and wallets – but this wallet has all the check marks of a good replica Prada as it a) has the exact same leather standard (often a very big giveaway when it is poor); b) it is put together well (there is no point of paying top dollar for good leather when the manufacturers can’t sew it together well – but luckily this replica’s manufacturer did); and finally c) the hardware is heavy and very close to the original/the same (this is another big giveaway as often times plastic-y hardware is used that has a weird shine to it and can be spotted a mile away).

The retail price of this wallet on the Prada estore is about $665 USD, and I snagged it for about $179 – killer savings right considering the quality is basically identical to the real deal?

So what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below and I absolutely cannot wait to share the rest of my purchases with you guys in upcoming posts!

Ps. Since this is probably my last post before the XMAS celebrations, Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever you celebrate!

Speak to you soon dolls!

Replica Balenciaga vs. Authentic Handbag Buying Guide

This post will be dedicated to mentioning all the things you should look for in a replica Balenciaga handbag before purchasing it in order to ensure it truly is as good as the real thing.

balenciaga replicaSo beautiful… how I love Balenciaga! What do you think of this replica?

The Zippers:
Although this may seem like such a small feature of a handbag it is actually one which you must really pay attention to in order to make sure the replica is reflective of a real balenciaga handbag. Balenciaga uses zippers created by Lampo. Usually fake handbags come with zippers engraved with the capitalized word Lampo – these are clearly fake. Good Balenciaga replicas should have Lampo zippers which have the word Lampo written in a slanted or italics font. In addition to this the “L” from Lampo must extend to the end of the word. A trademark symbol should also appear beside the world Lampo. Usually when my friends show off their replica Balenciaga’s to me I take a look at the zippers first. If the replica artists have paid attention to the zippers it is a sign that they have an eye for detail and will follow through with other finer or subtle details on the rest of the handbag.

lampo zipper
The Leather:
Leather oh leather. This is the most visible part of your handbag so clearly it is a big point to consider when purchasing a replica. Authentic Balenciaga uses either goatskin or lambskin leather depending on which collection a specific handbag is from. The leather is very soft and feels quite smooth and carefree in your hands. It is almost silky in a sense. Authentic Balenciaga leather also has a shine which is not overpowering (as many of the fakes are) but at the same time noticeable. Its leather is distressed but not over the top cracked out. The tassels attached to the handbag should be equally as soft. The leather of a Balenciaga plays a big part in creating its elegance which is why it is important to pay attention to this when you are shopping around for a replica.

A lot of replicas unforutnately are overly cracked out and overly shiny. This completely takes away from the beauty of the Balenciaga and trust me girlfriend will be noticeable from a mile away to a true fashionista. I think that replicas don’t offend companies like Balenciaga when done properly but when it is horrible its completely misrepresents their product.

So check with any site you are thinking of buying from to make sure the materials they use are the same as the authentic and if they aren’t DO NOT BUY. Your bag will look tacky and spotted as a fake from a mile away.

real-fake-balenciaga-black-calf-leather-twiggy-bag
The difference is clear and upsetting. The fake does not hold the beauty of the real handbag.

Another more minute yet equally important feature of a Balenciaga.If the end of the straps are folded over this is an immediate sign that the Balenciaga is fake. Fake Balenciaga handbags usually have a more squared off bale.

The Handles:
Finally one last key part of a Balenciaga I would like to discuss with my fellow shopping peers. The handles of an authentic Balenciaga should not have a finished or coated look. The Balenciaga should have handles which are weaved, or braided with leather. Balenciaga themselves call it “sueded leather”, which has a raw appearance to it and looks more like rope or a shoelace. This is a detail fakes often miss unfortunately.

balenciaga replica handle authentic

You should really pay attention to all these details if you want to find a replica handbag which truly reflects the edgy yet chic personality of a Balenciaga handbag. 

Also I will be posting guides for Celine replica buying, Louis Vuitton replica buying etc. in the near future! We should aim as shoppers to buy what I call “authentic replica designer handbags” which means they have every part of an authentic bag with the price tag being the only key difference if you know what I mean.

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 Phantom Replica Review

replica-celine-bag-review-phantom

Hey guys I just wanted to share a review of a gorgeous Celine Phantom I had purchased several months ago. I completely forgot to post the review of the bag until I wore it out a few days ago. Anyone who has read this blog even a bit will know that I am currently addicted to CELINE bags, and as we all know not everyone wants (or in many cases can) pop out a couple of thousand for the authentics in every style. I personally have two authentic Celine bags (one is my belt tote and the other is a tri colored nano which I completely fell in love with – I will post my entire CELINE collection soon!). Anyways I have noticed that there are indeed some very good CELINE replica bags out there which is why I am honestly pretty deterred personally at this point from buying any more authentic pieces as the knockoffs do justice to the original design. As I mention all the time it really comes down to knowing how to shop for replica handbags, whether they be CELINE or any other designer out there!

Here are the photos of my Phantom which is actually a replica of the croc embossed version in red. The leather of the bag is quite stiff but it is definitely authentic and I like how the croc embossed bag keeps its shape a bit better compared to the other Phantoms made from calfskin since I think that the form of the bags are what make CELINE’s personality. Take a look at the photos below and let me know what you think – would you go authentic or fake for the Celine replica bag shown below?

bottom-of-celine-bag-stitching-replica-authentic-comparison

One very very important thing to remember if you are shopping for a replica Celine Phantom bag in particular is that you MUST take a look at the bottom of the bag. If you do not get a shot of the bottom of the handbag please do NOT buy the bag! You have to make sure that the bag does not have a stitch through the middle. Although there are some older editions of the croc Phantom which did come with a stitch, CELINE has discontinued this production method and a stitch through the middle is considered a tell tale sign of a fake bag! This is the #1 sign that handbag authenticators and any keen CELINE fan would use to judge the authenticity of bag, and so if you want to invest in a good replica then make sure that the centre is not stitched!  celine croc phantom

A closeup of the bag for you to get an idea of the stitching which is very well done on this particular replica handbag. celine-phantom-replica-bag-review-2 celine-phantom-replica-bag-review-3

A close up of the hardware on the bottom of the bag! CELINE Phantoms come with little pegs on the bottom of the bag. This is another thing to look out for when thinking of purchasing a replica Celine as many knockoffs also miss this detail!celine-phantom-replica-bag-review celine-phantom-zipper

Make sure that the inside zipper of the Phantom is stamped with “Made in Italy” right below the zipper line and nowhere else! celine-replica-bags-zipper A closeup of the braided zipper on the Phantom which is just one detail of the bag that I love!replica celine phantom zipper  replica-celine-bag-zipper replica-celine-bag

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!

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!

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!

Celine Trio Replica Crossbody in Black Review

I purchased the ever gorgeous Celine Trio replica crossbody bag in black! I think this bag is the perfect crossbody since not only is it split into three separate pouches but the style is to die for literally! I personally love how Celine is modern minimalism embodied in a brand! I love love all of their bags and think that the Celine Trio is possibly my most favorite piece from their whole line currently (aside from the hobo I am also dying for!). If there was one brand I could currently own every bag from I would definitely say Celine would be the winner since I am in love with the lifestyle portrayed by the brand and the purses in themselves!

I purchased the bag in black (which you should know is my favorite color by now) since as I always say it is very hard for the replica manufacturers to screw the color black up on any bag, and as always I would rather be safe than sorry! The quality of the bag is definitely a counter quality after inspecting it in person. The leather grains are very defined and the bag is quite smooth and rich in feeling to the touch. The leather has a slight sheen and is not matte like many of the Celine luggage series handbags, but I don’t mind personally even though I do usually have a preference for matte leather over shiny leather. The box the bag was in became a bit dented up and marked up through international transit (imagine the journey from China to the US!) but the bag was well protected inside with a dustbag and is gorgeous! I would definitely recommend buying a replica Celine Trio over an authentic version as the bag is a crossbody (come on people you don’t need to spend thousands on a crossbody!) and it is honestly really well done. I have seen the Trio in the authentic Celine boutique as well where I was tempted to take the plunge and purchase it full price, but am very glad I waited it out to see what the fake would be like! This Celine is definitely a superfake, and one of my new favorite bags! I must note however that I personally would wear this style of bag more so in the fall and winter, but I already have numerous outfit ideas and can’t wait to make it work for the summer time. Take a look at the photos below and leave a comment to let everyone know what you think!

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!
