I purchased the replica version of a Stella McCartney Falabella Mini Tote because I had previously purchased a replica wallet of the same designer and the quality was superb so I figured I would take a chance on the bag. My intuition was right and the quality turned out to be fantastic. Stella McCartney, as you may or may not know, is a fashion brand owned by Paul McCartney’s (yes – the Beatles band member) daughter. Her line focuses on sustainability throughout its manufacturing chain. Additionally, her bags are completely vegan for those who are trying to shop for cruelty free products. I think that Stella McCartney’s vision is respectable and her some of her bags are to die for! One particular model that celebrities have adored and is a staple within the closets of people like Meghan Markle (yes – the Duchess) is the Falabella.
The bag comes in so many sizes and is uber cute. I think that the bag has an edgy and sophisticated look all in one. It is very practical for everyday use and adds a bit of sparkle to any outfit, especially with the vibrancy of the chains. I personally chose to purchase the bag in the Mini size which is in between the Normal, and the Tiny size. The bag is made with black faux brushed-leather which looks and feels like real leather; has a snap fastening at the open top; and came with a dust bag.
Even though I have many years of experience purchasing replica bags, shopping for replicas can still be hit or miss even for those of us with experience. However what sets apart a seasoned replica bag shopper from a newbie is that we take it all in stride, and expect to get a bad apple every now and then amongst our purchases. This particular replica bag I purchased was a Gucci Ophidia in the chestnut colour in the size small.
The original retail price is $1,790 USD and I purchased it for around $250 from a replica bag seller that I tried for the first time. The bag’s look from a distance is ok but the hardware is super light and fake looking, and the interior is not good quality. The dustbag was also very cheap looking and feeling – usually dustbags are not my first concern as you can get a good replica bag and a cheap dustbag however in this case the dustbag was super horrible giving me a sign of the quality beforehand.
You can take a peek below at the photos yourself to see the lack of quality, and take it as a lesson that even those of us with a lot of experience can get burned sometimes when shopping for replica bags:
With authentic designer wallet prices skyrocketing, it is not hard to imagine why many turn to fakes. Some people buy fakes because they can’t cough up the cash for authentic designer goods. Others may have the cash, but simply want to save money if they can get the same product at a lower price. Regardless of where you fit on this spectrum, this post will provide key tips and guidance on how to pick a good replica wallet to purchase.
Buying a fake or replica wallet is a great way to gage whether you can stomach buying fakes. There are several reasons why including:
The uber popular Céline Luggage bag series was part of Phoebe Philo’s first collection for the House of Céline once she took over as creative director in 2008.
