Upcoming Reviews: Month of January! Louis Vuitton, Celine, Chanel, Stella McCartney and Prada Haul!

Hello lovelies!

I just wanted to share with you some pictures of my latest bag haul for the month which I will post detailed reviews of each piece shortly (the Chanel I have already posted a review of!).

I will link to each review in this post as I make time to update the blog in between being a mom and leading (like all you other lovely ladies and gents out there) a very busy life!

A group shot of the latest gems I have added to my ever growing collection. I will probably start doing giveaways for all my extra purses soon that I no longer carry! 
My haul this month includes the following replica handbags (of original quality only - y'all know I only buy the best of the best now after doing this for so many years!):

1) Louis Vuitton Lockit purse in Soft Leather from Designer Discreet

2) Prada Saffiano Double zip Tote Large from Designer Discreet (amazing bag that I will compare to an AAA+ Prada I had previously ordered which cannot compare at all)

3) Celine Nano in black smooth leather from Perfect Celine

4) Beige Chanel Lambskin Doubleflap with Gold Hardware from Chic Chanel (you can read the review for this purse by clicking HERE!)

5) Stella McCartney Falabella Clutch from Designer Discreet

6) Black Lambskin Chanel wallet on chain (WOC) from Chic Chanel

I also have a Louis Vuitton men's wallet, and Gucci belt bought for my hubby from Designer Discreet that I will post detailed pics of the the lovely gents that visit this blog as well (I'm trying to get him to buy more replicas so I have something to share with all the men that frequently email me!). 

Chanel Beige Lambskin Jumbo Flap Review

My new beige lambskin baby! I am beyond head over heels in love with this purse!!!!
Hey dolls,

First of all happy new year my lovely blog readers, and I hope your resolutions from the beginning of the month are working out successfully (although I must admit my personal resolution of trying to go wheat free is faltering :-P). I will be posting all of my January purchases in the coming days, and must say I have some lovely bags in store for you ladies 'n gents to see! I have one word to say about the latest bag I purchased from Chic Chanel: OMG. Ok well technically that is 3 words combined into one, but I will say it again: OMG. I have obviously shared my love for Chic Chanel's bags in the past but this time I am honestly in awe of the bag I have received. I am not sure if all y'all remember but they used to sell both machine made and handmade Chanel replicas but apparently they have changed their factory or something now, and they only sell handmade bags for the same price they used to sell their machine made bags, and so naturally I took temptation's bait and ordered a bag and wallet on chain (WOC). The bag I chose was the Jumbo beige lambskin flap with gold hardware. I have been in love with beige Chanel bags for the longest time, and I was debating between beige and white, but decided that white was a bit too high maintenance color wise for myself at this point and ended up going with the beige lambskin jumbo.

Inside the flap. You can definitely see the
 buttery smooth texture
of the lambskin here!
The bag has turned out to be beautiful to say the least, and I can really see the difference with the handmade stitching as the bag is literally a perfect copy. My close friend I have previously mentioned who is solely an authentic handbag puritan was even in awe of the bag and has for the very first time in her life asked me for their contact details to buy her first fake so that should be an indicator of how good their handmade bags are because I never in my life thought she would give in to a fake, especially for Chanel!

The first thing I will say regardless of whether you are planning on buying a real, fake, used, or whatever bag is that lambskin is GENTLE! Yes guys 'n gals the lambskin bag is super soft. I have traditionally always gone with caviar because I've heard and known that the lambskin is hard to maintain, and after owning this bag for only 3 days I can tell you that I am already becoming a bit of a wary wearer since I am honestly afraid of ruining the bag with unintentional harsh treatment! I have decided to only take the bag out when I am not with the kiddo (who would tear it apart), and know I will have a safe spot to put it on because clearly the bag is high maintenance.

Price wise I got the bag for $495 with the shipping charges included. The bag came with the whole works (box, dustbag, authentication card etc.) that you'd expect from a replica. I paid through Western Union for the bag since the company no longer accepts credit cards, and must say it was worth every penny and more. I have included lots of pictures of the bag below and also a video (on my new Youtube where I will store vids of all the bags for you lovelies to reference). Take a look at the pictures below and try not to ogle too much (oh who am I kidding; the pictures of the bag make me ogle too as well even though I have it!). I have also started a Youtube channel where I will be uploading all the videos of my purses (authentic and replica). I uploaded all my Chic Chanel purses, and you can view them by clicking here!

As mentioned before I am not sharing Chic Chanel's information publicly since Chanel seems to keep removing their sites (and after getting this handmade bag I can clearly understand why!). Feel free to leave a comment below or shoot me an email!

Hermès Birkin Crocodile Review

Love at first croc! ;-)
Hello darlings!

The holidays are a near and I don't know how all y'all are feeling, but I am VERY excited! I love the holiday spirit and the happiness it evokes in people, and just the general feel good atmosphere. I find that the only thing wrong with the Christmas season is that we are so focused on treating others that we forget to treat the most important - ourselves! Sound selfish? I think not; at least in my case I feel I am always on the giving side for the most part (handbags and fashion are my only indulgence) and thought hey maybe in the midst of all the shopping we ladies ('n gents) should take a moment to stop and treat ourselves! So yes maybe this is a justification for  handbag I have been itching to purchase, but oh well, life is short after all! Which handbag? Hermes.

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to Hermes, but all I can begin off by saying is pure elegance exudes from these bags. They are not just a designer bag, but ultimately every fashionista's dream, and in my opinion the ultimate designer bag. When you have a Hermes in your collection it almost completes it in a sense! Anyways I already had a smaller black Kelly, but I thought it was a bit blah and boring, so I decided to go for something a little, no ALOT more special. So I did some research, and ended up finding Hermes Reflection, which seems to be THE spot to buy a replica Hermes if you want one that is extremely well done. Now well all know these crazy crocodile Birkins go up all the way over 100k plus for the authentic versions, and they are still rare to find! This has created a big gap in the market where buyers (including those with deep pockets) are left looking elsewhere. There seems to be a rainbow of quality when it comes to Hermes handbag copies, and the Crocodile edition seems to have many qualities as well. I have personally seen the super cheap models that make me literally shudder they look so fake, and I have also seen models that are so close you'd need an expert to make the call.

The Hermes I bought is much closer to the latter. When I purchased from HR they gave me two options: croc embossed, or real croc - as it they would kill a croc on their croc farm to make you a full out Birkin. I chose the former because I didn't want to spend over $10,000 on a bag (although i can definitely see why others would pay so much when you compare it to the original bag's price tag) and must say that although it is a bit more matte, it is still an awesome bag. The model I paid for was $799 since it was only embossed, but I LOVE it. The bag came packaged in a beautiful Hermes box complete with ribbons and all! I picked a grey tone croc pattern, and love it so much I think I will eventually (maybe as an anniversary gift in 2015?) ask them to recreate it for me in the authentic farmed croc leather! It is definitely a bold bag and an attention grabber, so it's definitely not for a girl who like the subtle look!

When I was on their site they also had the option of custom hand making a bag with imported French leather according to Hermes' official handbag blueprint, and I am now seriously contemplating going for a Birkin in a fun color in togo leather. What do you guys think? Should I give myself a second Christmas gift? ;-)

Well here are the photos, let me know what you think in the comments below!

The feet of the bag are super helpful in keeping dirt away - one thing you'd definitely want to keep away from your Birkin!

Céline Phantom Croc Embossed Leather in Red Handbag Review

Love at first sight was definitely true in the case of this Phantom!
Hello lovelies,

Ok so I am super super excited about this post, and I have one word to say to introduce it: Céline. Yes this is the brand that you see right now all over Instagram, and basically everywhere else that fashionistas lurk in real life and on the web! Céline is basically in my opinion: edgy, chic, feminine, tom-body, and minimalist all in one word. Why? Their bags are filled with flare yet so so functional, and that is why I have personally been a tad obsessed! Ok so now the color. Obviously black is my safe choice, and that is really what I was considering buying when I was picking out this bag, but something stopped me when I saw all the color options. I realized that Céline is a fun brand with so many colors, and as a usually neutral person who likes to play it safe I decided to go all out and get a very bold (maybe the most bold?) color: RED! Yes, I decided that if I am getting this croc embossed Céline, I should do it right and do it with some color. And so I did. Last I checked the Spring 2014 price for the Phantom in croc at the official Céline boutique is $3,450 USD, but by playing it smart and buying replica I only paid 1/6 of that price by buying it from Perfect Céline (UPDATE: a lot of you ladies have been asking me what happened to their site; it was down so I just emailed them at perfectcelinebags@gmail.com to order since I REALLY wanted this bag), and must say I am much more impressed by the bag as I initially thought may be a hit or miss replica purchase. That I am pleasantly surprised, is to say the least. The handbag has a very matte feel to it, and honestly as soon as I pulled it out of the box I realized that if the word lux was ever to be used, this would be the case!

To be honest, I was also unsure of the overall square shape of the Phantom before, even when I saw it in the Céline boutique, but once I held it, and wore it out for the first time I realized that I really fell in love with the Phantom overall. In fact I think I will be going for a suede Phantom for the holiday season, as I think it would definitely compliment my looks for the season!

Here are the pics of the beaut, and yes the handbag is every bit as elegant in real life as she is on our digital screens. I will definitely do an OOTD (outfit of the day) shot with this baby, and add those to this post eventually as well! So without much further ado, here is the lovely Céline croc embossed Phantom replica:

This pic came about a bit pink with the sunlight but gives you a good idea of the back!

Love the touch of gold on the feet of the bag at the bottom!

LOVE the braided zip! 
Another sign of a good replica Phantom is suede on the inside of the bag. If it is not real suede it will never be as good as the authentic bag!

Another thing to notice on the croc Phantom is that there is no Céline stamp on the front of the bag unlike many other models, but I personally like the incognito status since any true fashionista will know it is a Phantom right away!
The side of the bag! Love the matte look of the bag, as I wasn't sure if it would be too shiny, and am very happy it did not turn out so!
The bottom of the bag. Notice: no stitching across as that is an obvious sign of a fake bag!


Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière 35 Review

Hey dolls,

The holiday season is comin' up, and we all know what that means: shopping, LOTS of shopping! But the good news is that if you have any handbag lovers on your list, I will be posting my annual favorite bags for the holidays, that can help any lady or gent buy their friend,lover, or loved one an awesome handbag or accessory which is both hot for the season and amazing in terms of quality (I will try each one out myself). Today's review will be on the Speedy Bandoulière 35 in Monogram Canvas which would definitely fit perfectly on the list of perfect gifts as it is not only a Louis Vuitton classic, but a designer handbag classic in general that any purse infatuated individual would LOVE (and I gladly speak on their part) to receive!

I have decided to keep the reviews going forward more picture oriented as I know that you really have to see it to believe it with replicas. It is tough to trust anyone's advice on buying them, especially since the internet is full of oh so many scams nowadays. So I am going to let my pictures do the talking (not all of it, but most of it :-P) going forward! So let's begin by showcasing the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière 35 in Monogram Canvas that I purchased. Ok so why this bag? I know I recently did a review on a Speedy 35 in Monogram Canvas without the shoulder strap from Rep-a-Porter and the bag was great, but honestly after wearing it I realized it was a bit heavy to carry around especially if you carry around a ton of stuff like me. Well the only reason I got a 35 was so that it would have the capacity to be stuffed up with all my things on a high maintenance kind of day. But alas it was really really heavy, and I began to long for that strap. So I gave away my first Speedy to my sister, who of course quite happily accepted it.

Now that I have received my 35 with the shoulder strap I feel much more happy, and love how the weight of the handbag is more so on my shoulders than just my hands. In fact I think I will buy a strap-less Speedy 25 (not 35) for the future for my more minimalist days as I still love the look of the strap-less Speedy as well. Replica-wise I noticed RAP was down so I ended up just buying the 35 from DD, who seems to have really improved with their LV collection if this bag is a good representation of their whole selection! I spoke to one of their sales reps through their chat window, and apparently they have stopped carrying AAA bags since they are poor quality - a good move on their part in my opinion. After receiving this bag I realized that I have really come a long way from my days as a replica newbie, where I would buy horrible canvas with a plastic quality and think it was amazing, but these 1:1 bags have really given me a new appreciation for the quality that replicas can truly give a person! Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what y'all think:


Fake vs. Real: How to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Neverfull!


I love the blue stamped Neverfull! It is definitely on my wishlist! What about yours?
Hello darlings,

This article will explore some key tips for those shopping for a Louis Vuitton Neverfull (whether it be fake, authentic, used etc.). One thing I must say is that Louis Vuitton's are probably one of the best replicated handbags since they are so popular (I can't blame everyone though - Louis Vuitton is so iconic, and my heart personally swoons everytime I get a glimpse of a monogram print!). Now if we are to go even further into the LV line, the Neverfull is probably THE most replicated handbag. What does this mean? There are some pretty good copies out there.

So if you are a lovely lady (or gent) lookin' for a real Louis Vuitton Neverfull there are certain things you must pay close attention to in order to ensure your handbag is authentic and NOT fake. At the same time if you are looking for a good knockoff these tips can help you too, since there are many Louis Vuitton Neverfull replicas out there at great prices which fit most of these conditions (I have one myself). Here are the key features to pay attention to when perusing around for a Louis Vuitton Neverfull handbag:

1. Check the Date Code!

The easiest way to find out if your bag is a knockoff is to check the date code on the handbag! Louis Vuitton has a very particular way of labelling the date codes on their handbags so if it is replica it is usually off. Obviously the date code is one of the more subtle differences which cannot be noticed by the naked eye, but if you are looking for an authentic (especially if it is second hand) it is always necessary to check the date code before you pay a hefty fee for the bag! On the other hand if you are in the market for a replica handbag, I would suggest not paying much attention to the date code since it is inside the handbag and nobody will be able to see it when you carry the bag, unless you wear it inside out (in which case you should be carrying a Louis Vuitton :-P).

So what is they system Louis Vuitton uses for their date codes? Well there is a letter indicating the factory in France which the handbag was produced in, followed by a few digits which represent the month and year of production. Basically the two first letters refer to the factory, and the 1st and 3rd digits refer to month, while the 2nd and last digits refer to year of production. Kind of confusing, but I am assuming it is done to prevent the ease of replication by the fake manufacturers. In case you were curious about the factories in France which make up the list of letters used, they include:

A0, A1, A2, AA, AN, AR, AS, BA, BJ, BU, DU, CO, CT, ET, FL, LW, MB, MI, NO, RA, RI, SD, SL, SN, SP, SR, TH, TR, VI, VX

A lot of replica handbags use the MD factory in the date code which gives away that the bag is a replica. If you look at the date code first usually a lot of your troubles will be avoided if you are considering buying an authentic handbag!
2. Leather Oxidization!

Louis Vuitton handbags come with lovely light leather trimmings when you first buy them however they don't, and certainly shouldn't (at least if they are real or very close to the real) stay that light over time if they are authentic. Real leather is affected by the elements of nature, and is prone to change. The trimmings on your Louis Vuitton handbag are no different in this regard, and will certainly darken over time! Now if you are buying a replica handbag you can certainly find a replica which fits the bill with this characteristic, as good replicas come with this feature. Personally I own over 5 Louis Vuitton replicas which have all oxidized. If it does not oxidize it is usually PU leather, and you have not bought a bag which is the best of the best - so be careful when shopping!

Overall girls in my opinion Louis Vuitton Neverfull's are one bag which it is better to go with a fake as opposed to a real because of the high quality of fakes out there! In my opinion it is better to buy a replica Neverfull in good quality for around $300 bucks as opposed to $1300 for an authentic, and splurge on an authentic Louis Vuitton Empreinte handbag which is SO much better in the authentic than the fake! It really is a matter of priorities, and spending your money right when it comes to designer goods! In other words sometimes it is better to buy fake, and sometimes it is better to buy authentic. In this case the knockoff is just as good as the real! If y'all are still feeling doubts about what I am saying feel free to click here to read a thread on the Purse Forum which really backs up my thoughts. The lovely lady who started the thread said,
Hi all,
last weekend I went to a mall near by. I was so shock that one of the boutique are selling Replica Neverfull, which was I saw detailed, it looked so real with the original one I have...The sales counter said it's the super one which is close to the authentic one. Oh my...I can't believe, how they can find such material, color, inside motive ,models, threads and sizes that looks really alike.Even me, I can not find the difference. I have even touch and feel the bag. The soft leather also feel no different than mine. The one that different only the price. Compare the authentic LV I bought for Sing$1000, this fake Bags only around US$110...I really shock when she told the price

Any comment from you all. What's make the major different between the super replica and authentic. Now I feel really down cause My lovely authentic neverfull has the replica which really looks alike with hardly no difference

See what I mean? To finish this article off I have attached a picture of my tried and true (aka very old) replica Louis Vuitton Neverfull in monogram canvas which is patina'ing just fine! 

Let me know what you think in the comments below, and your favorite spot for the Louis Vuitton Neverfull to buy it as real or fake! If you ever have an eye on a bag and want it authenticated feel free to email me at replicahandbagreviews@gmail.com!

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Speedy 35 Replica Handbag Review

When seeing THAT brown box you gotta know there is a good surprise waiting inside ;-P
The Louis Vuitton Speedy is definitely one of Louis Vuitton's most iconic bags, alongside the Neverfull of course! Louis Vuitton's official website describes the bag as, "The first ever carry-all city bag, the Speedy is a must-have for women with a love for fashion. The perfect accessory for getting around town in style whilst carrying all the essentials," and I certainly agree. If you love Louis Vuitton's classic line, then you should definitely have a Speedy in your bag collection because it is one of the brand's defining and timeless pieces!

I personally bought a Speedy 35 to use on the weekends as I think it is the perfect bag in terms of both size and shape when you do not want to feel over the top, but want to haul a decent amount of stuff with you. I contemplated getting the handbag with the strap, but decided to go against it, as I think I have way to many crossbody bags, and thought that the strapless Speedy would push me to try and wear my handbag a different way! I decided to go for the classic Monogram Canvas look because I personally think that is the best print for the Speedy. I am not really personally feelin' the Damier Ebene canvas for the Speedy at all, or any of the other leathers for that matter. Only the Azur has intrigued me as much as the Monogram, but I feel as if I have way to many Damier Azur handbags and think the Monogram Canvas is perfect for the fall season with its brown tones, and warm feel.

I purchased the Speedy 35 from Rep-a-Porter which is one of my favorite sites for Louis Vuitton, because their canvas feel on the handbags are just so darned good! I have purchased a LOT of Louis Vuitton replicas so far, and I have to say they have the best material quality in my opinion. There are many replica websites that sell flimsy canvas handbags that just look off, and I can personally spot a mile away as a fake, so after being forever in search for the real LV feel, RAP has certainly won my heart! The handbag came nicely boxed (for free surprisingly), tied up with ribbons to complete the look. I love when my orders come in boxes because that extra protection is always amazing to have, and we all know how rough of a trip it is for a package to make from all the way in China to the States, or west in general!

The handbag also came with the dustbag, lock + key, and the usual booklets. I don't know about all y'all but I personally do not have much use for those things so I don't really pay attention to them as much as the actual bag itself! Anyways I have posted pictures below revealing the bag. I think that even the picture captures the difference in quality for the handbag as it just looks so much more lux, and gets that feel of LV down to the tee. The only critique I have of the handbag is that the manufacturers are still using the old style of lacquering the red on the sides, but at the end of the day authentic Louis Vuitton handbags used to be made this way so it is no biggie!

Take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think in the comments below! If you have a review or any questions to ask please feel free to ask them below or email me at replicahandbagreviews@gmail.com.


Three Most Commonly Asked Questions About Replica Handbags

Too much to buy... too little time! Any fashionista know this age old adage!

Hello darlings, 

This is a copy of the same post I wrote under the "First Time Buyer?" tab I'd thought I'd share with all y'all as these tips are really golden when you are new, or even experienced in purchasing replica handbags, or a copy or replica of anything else for that matter! Let me know if you have anything to add in the comments!

1. What brand should I go for?

There is good news, and bad news when it comes to deciding which handbag you should purchase a replica for. The good news is that there are good quality replicas for every handbag brand, but the bad news is that not every model of every brand will be available in a replica form at all - let alone a good replica! So be careful when picking which handbag to buy a copy of - a good rule of thumb I always take into consideration is the popularity of the model of the handbag. Think of it this way: we all see Cara Delavigne, Chiara Ferragni, Olivia Palermo, the Kardashians, Kate Moss, Angelina Jolie, or any other celeb/model/blogger with a certain designer bag like a Celine luggage tote; this bag is very popular so the factories follow the old demand/supply rule, and create better copies of this bag as opposed to a Fendi Baguette which is not as in demand. So basically when shopping for a replica set your sights on a popular model since those tend to be more well done as opposed to the lesser known bags. 

This is a good way to decide which handbag to buy fake vs. which to buy real - the models which are less well known are usually better to buy as authentic to maintain the beauty of the original design. However on the other hand I would never buy an authentic Neverfull since the replica ones are so well done, and I'd really be wasting my money. 

2. Can replicas really be THAT good?

Those glances - yes you know what I am talking about - those negative glances that give that vibe of "oh that is a fake; she can't afford that; who is she kidding" from strangers is every replica buyers nightmare. Now when you are new to buying replica handbags these thoughts and worries increase tenfold. Darlings, after many years of saving thousands, and gathering a big collection of bad, decent, good, and excellent copies of designer handbags I think it is safe to say that your worries can be valid depending on where you shop. Yes that is the key - some replica sellers sell poor excuses for bags, while others sell bags which cannot be told from the original unless rulers, and authentication numbers are brought in - these are the types of replicas I like to go for. 

As someone who has many friends who are quite fashion conscious, I have been exposed to a lot of designer goods, so my eye is a bit more discerning than your average Joe, and I can honestly say that the increasing quality of replica handbags continues to pleasantly surprise me and my wallet as they are becoming darn good - depending where you shop of course! 

3. What should I buy first?

If it is your first time dipping into the dark, yet dazzling world of replicas I would suggest you go for a small item such as a wallet. This is an inexpensive, and easy way to test the waters of a seller you are considering to buy from. You can get a glimpse of their leather quality, stitching quality, logo placement, accuracy etc. without spending too much money. Once you receive your first order, you can make a good judgement and decide whether the vendor deserves any more of your time or money, and make a decision about their quality! 

If you are contemplating where to buy from you can check out my personal favorites on the Replica Gold List I have compiled based on my experiences (feel free to contribute to it by emailing me at replicahandbagreviews@gmail.com). 

What quality should I look for?

Replica handbags are like any other knockoffs in that every knockoff is not equal. There is the good, the bad, and the ugly. There are many A's and +'s involved when looking for replicas online so it really becomes quite confusing to decode what a seller is trying to sell you, but after many years of interacting with Chinese sellers I have a pretty good understanding of their labels. This is the quality grade as per my knowledge:

AAA+: The typical market replica copy; the quality is so so; in my experience it is good enough to fool many, but lacks that lux feel of the original copies you buy from the brands.

AAAAA: This is the same as 1:1 

One to One: This is the same as counter quality.

Original Leather: This is the same as counter quality. 

Counter Quality: This is the "good stuff" as one would put it if they were discussing drugs - counter quality replicas are what Chinese sellers consider the best replicas in that they are apparently good enough to be placed on the counter at an authentic store, and this relates to both craftsmanship and leather quality. 

So after reading that list I am sure you have come to same conclusion as myself - there are way too many labels for the same thing! I have also ready many other descriptions like "seven stars" etc. but I find those labels deceptive, and it is usually always a good idea to ask the seller what the standard is in terms of the letter "A" to get a good idea of its quality. 

Another thing to remember, especially when it is your first time buying replicas is that many, if not most, sellers lie about their quality. This really sucks for us as buyers because we go in with honest hearts usually, and it always sucks to be scammed. This is where the reviews come in, and trial and error play a large part of this, but once you find a good source, it is best to stick with them and establish a relationship to make sure you always get the good stuff! The more friendly you are with them, the more care they usually put into your order! 

So there it is folks - these are my key tips for any first time buyers. Feel free to email me with any questions, or concerns, and also feel free to email any additional tips you think I should add to this list.
