Hi guys, I’ve missed my replica world, sorry about that I haven’t updated my new collections of replica bag for such a long time, thanks for my followers’ emails, but sorry I cannot reply them one by one.

This time, I bought Louis Vuitton Pochette metis, Onthego Monogram GM and Chanel classic flap bag in medium size. There are too many beautiful replica bags, but now I have to control my budget more carefully since I have a baby: ( Finally I still chose the most classic and popular ones. What do you think? I will share my reviews on every bag very soon, stay tuned, love you!
They say “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” but we say “hell hath no fury like a woman who just found out her bag is fake”. Perhaps it’s a bit of an exaggeration but we all can imagine the gut wrenching feeling of purchasing your dream Chanel bag only to find out it is a knockoff. Read our 10 key tips below to help authenticate your Chanel bag below.
1. Look at the leather!
Chanel bags are famous for the quality of their leather. Whether it be buttery smooth lambskin or pebbled caviar leather, the quality should be top notch. The same goes for their bags made with fabrics like tweed. Basically if the quality of the leather or fabric seems off it may be possible your bag is fake, especially if you purchased it as a gently used or new bag.
2. Look at the stitch count!
If your bag is an authentic Chanel it should have more than 10 stitches per inch. This is considered a high stitch count, and anything below this usually indicates the bag is fake. Replica manufacturers do not usually put the same care into crafting the bag as their authentic counterparts do, and in the case of Chanel specifically a low stitch count makes the bag look “puffier”. So grab your bag and start counting the stitches!
3. Look at the chain strap!
Prada, like most other designers, is plagued with the issue of fake or replica bags selling as the real deal. We’ve put together seven key tips to look for when looking to authenticate your Prada bag to make sure it’s not a knockoff!
7 Tips to Authenticate Your Prada Saffiano Bag:
1.Look at the stitching!
Authentic Prada bags have their stitching done at an angle. The stitching on authentic bags is also done with a thick thread. Most fake bags will use a flimsier thread and the stitching will usually be done straight. The stitching should also be singular and not double backed. Looking at these details requires a sharp eye and a magnifying glass in many instances as they are very easy to miss.
2. Look at the feet of the bag!
If your Prada bag comes with studs at the bottom (remember: not all Prada’s necessarily do), you will want to pay attention to the engraving on the studs. The word PRADA should be printed on the studs in the same font as used on the front of the bag. Replica manufacturers usually use a font that is off, or the printing is not done as crisply as the authentic counterpart’s.
3. Look at the leather!
The Prada Saffiano leather is a distinctive calf leather that is cross hatched. This calf leather is of the highest quality and the cross hatching on the bag is produced by a process in which the print is pressed onto the leather which is meant to coat the bag. Replica manufacturers may use real calf leather however they are usually not able to replicate the cross hatch design as accurately. This detail may seem minute but the photo below makes its importance clear.
4. Look at the logo!
Most fake Prada bags miss the curve on the letter “R” in the Prada logo. This is one of easiest ways to spot a fake Prada as you can simply compare the logo on your bag to to that of an original, or simply pull up the logo on the internet to see if it matches. The engravings on the logo should also be printed crisply and should present themselves as easy to read. The spacing between the letters is also important as many fake bags have crooked or uneven lettering which is a telltale sign of a fake.
5. Look at the lining!
Authentic Prada bags almost always have a signature lining that repeats the name of the brand continuously. Most fake bags have a similar lining however leave out the name of the brand. This is a really easy and quick way to spot whether your bag is a fake or not.
6. Look at the dustbag!
Authentic Prada bags come with a dustbag that is white in color and has the Prada logo printed on the front. If your dustbag is not white or has something else other than the simple Prada logo printed on it, your bag may be a fake!
7. Look at the authenticity cards!
The authenticity card for an authentic Prada bag usually comes sealed inside of a small envelope, which is usually black in color. The card contained in the envelope should have a serial number written on it that matches the serial number on the inside of the bag. If these two numbers do not match the bag is most likely a fake.
If you are a first time Louis Vuitton buyer and you hear the word “patina” you may be thinking what the heck does that refer to? Well fret not, we’re here to tell all! The term patina actually refers to a process of leather darkening which occurs to the vachetta or untreated cowhide leather on your bag. Not all Louis Vuitton bags are made with untreated cowhide leather, so it is important to note that not every Louis Vuitton bag will undergo this process. The patina essentially refers to a darkening process which the leather undergoes as it is used over the years.
If you have purchased a new Louis Vuitton bag straight from the store you may notice that the leather trimmings on your bag are a rather pale beige. This color begins to darken over time eventually looking like a dark honey. The forces which cause your bag to patina are entirely natural: it includes oxidation, sunlight, oil from your skin, and dirt. We liken the patina process to that of aging a bottle of wine – both become finer with age. When you see a Louis Vuitton bag that has clearly patinated you know the wearer of the bag has had it for some time, and been through many adventures with the bag. The bag is literally marked by being exposed to your life.
One key benefit of a patinated bag is that you won’t be accused of having a fake bag as replica manufacturers traditionally did not make their bags with genuine cowhide leather, however this is not necessarily true anymore as fake bags become increasingly accurate. Generally speaking, some people like their bags patinated but others don’t. Some try to speed up the process while others try to slow it down. It really comes down to a matter of personal taste and subjectivity.
What do you personally think of the patina process? Sound off in the comments below.
Why did I buy a replica Stella Falabella tote?
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.

What size of the bag did I buy?
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.
