Time for round 2 of my summer hall ’17 reviews! This time I will be reviewing the Lady Dior bag I purchased. The Lady Dior bag is part of Dior’s timeless classics series, and I’m sure we can all agree that the history, structure, and look of the bag all certainly support this. Fun fact – do you know why the Lady Dior bag is called the Lady Dior bag? Well after doing some snooping I found out it was named after none other than Lady Di herself – a.k.a the late Princess of Wales, Diana. So if you are already lucky enough to own one of these bags then now you know your bag is steeped in a bit of royal history. And for those who have been coveting the bag – in other words dying to get one – it only gives you an extra reason to move it up on your wishlist!
I myself can certainly see why Princess Diana loved the bag. It has a regal essence to it and I believe it can make the least sophisticated of gals – myself included – look a little more elegant by sporting this look. As you can tell from the montage above, Princess Diana was obsessed with the bag and had the black color in every size and leather! When I decided to get the bag I naturally floated towards picking black myself – so hey I guess Lady Di and I have something in common when it comes to gravitating towards black accessories! Anyways jokes aside I decided to go for the Lady Dior in the original size in black lambskin (not the mini or the large) with gold hardware. I love the look of silver hardware on a Lady Dior too, but for some reason felt the black really popped out against the black and I fell in love with the look. The original a.k.a authentic version of the bag retails for around $4,100 USD while I got mine for less than a 1/10 of that at about $400 USD.
I paid for a counter quality replica which means that the bag is as close to the real deal as possible – if you have been reading the blog in the past you know I don’t like to mess around with poor fakes – they are a waste of money in my opinion & I am buying the bag to last as long as the original therefore I only shop for the best. The features of this specific bag that make it counter quality include the leather quality, the hardware quality, the stitching, the interior of the bag, and the overall feel of the bag. I will go into detail about all those details below:
The leather of the bag is genuine lambskin leather and I must tell you it is uber supple. Genuine lambskin leather should have a super buttery feel and the leather on this bag gets a big pass when it comes to this criteria. The leather is very comparable to the Chanel classic flap series which should also be super butter-y. If you buy a poor fake with fake leather that would ruin the whole look of this bag as the quality of the leather will be visible from a mile away.
Good quality hardware should be as heavy as the original. Some brands have lighter hardware while others have a heavier hardware. Dior is a brand that is in the middle when it comes to hardware heaviness. The charms are a bit heavier than the zipper and handles, but overall the there is a good weight to the hardware on this bag. The bag also has little pegs at the bottom to prevent it from getting dirty and also prevents the leather from getting scratched. I personally hate it when brands make bags with delicate leather like lambskin and do not include feet at the bottom (especially if you end up going for the real bag and spending 4 grand), but fortunately the Lady Dior is not one of those bags!
The stitching quality of a bag can either make or break a replica, and the case of this Lady Dior replica it makes the bag. Each square has a 9 count stitch which is on par with the authentic. Once again making a comparison to Chanel, the stitching is something that easily gives away a fake when it comes to that brand too as you notice an overly puffy classic flap. If your replica does not have a good stitch count on par with the original you don’t need to look at any other characteristics as it is bad fake period.
My last and favorite place of a replica bag I peek at in order to judge in order to assess the quality is the interior of the bag. A counter quality bag and a mediocre bag may look similar in many regards however the interior is usually what gives the bag away as fake. Most replica manufacturers use fake leather on the interior of a bag because they are cheap and trying to maximize their dollar made. I always look for a counter quality model of a bag that has real leather or original quality fabric on the interior, and in this case the Dior’s interior is made with real leather trimmings on the interior leather zipper while the actual interior is outlined with a red logo imprinted fabric.
The bag came with a strap that can be used to wear the bag on your shoulder as opposed to simply holding it.
Overall this Lady Dior replica bag is a good example of what a good replica bag should look like and what you should look for when shopping for one if you decide to go for a replica instead of a used or authentic!

Has anybody bought a Lady Dior demo DD lately ?
Thank you for your blog and yet, it is disappointing to find that you won’t just say from where you purchased this or any other bag you review!
I was wondering if the serial number was included inside the bag as well?
Thank you xo
Can you please tell me where you bought this bag from?
Where did you get bag?
Hi Jackie it was purchased from here 🙂
Thank you. Do you have a site you know of that carries a quality LV never full PM?
Hi! Do you know if it’s the same company as pursevalleyfactory? If it is then they told me they don’t actually accept credit card payments. Extremely rude staff. Required me to order first to hear more details on how payment would work. And the worst? To prove they are legit they showed me a screenshot of their latest shipments. It had full names and addresses of their customers. It makes me feel uneasy to see how little respect they have for the privacy of their customers. Was your experience at all similar?
The site I linked was DD’s old domain which is now taken over by some pursevalley impersonator. Stay away from pursevalley or any site linked to them they are total garbage. DD has been good in my opinion, and you can read more recommendations from myself and others here.
Hi PQ- I was wondering if the DD you mention is the same one as is recommended on your page?
