Hello beautiful blog readers,
Below you will find my review on my YSL Sac De Jour replica bag which I purchased this past Christmas. I have a new haul coming in the mail so I’m getting all these way overdue reviews completed to give you all some shopping advice as to which replicas I’ve recently purchased are good vs. garbage.
Why Did I Buy This Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Replica Bag?
I bought this the Sac De Jour Nano replica bag as an everyday bag. I got the smallest size because I am really into mini versions of every bag by every designer at the moment – and I’m not sure if this obsession will fade because the more minis I buy the more addicted I become. Anyways I digress – back the YSL Sac De Jour Nano … this bag is a beaut and I believe it can really help dress up any outfit because it has a flair of sophistication. I would not suggest you get the Nano size unless you have a light load to carry with you on a daily basis – but the good news is the bag comes in larger sizes as well so if you love the look you can easily just purchase a larger size!
The bag is described on the website as a signature Saint Laurent bag with soft construction, tubular handles, accordion sides, compression straps with tabs, embossed SAINT LAURENT logo, and comes with an adjustable and removable shoulder strap. The bag retails for around $2,100 USD for a brand new one from the original YSL boutique or website.
Judging the Leather Quality of the Replica Bag:
The leather of the bag is grained calfskin in the color black. The leather on this bag is authentic and real. This is the first thing you should check when receiving a replica bag, and will be the biggest pointer as to whether the bag is a piece of junk or a quality replica. If you are unsure the leather on your bag is real then an easy way to check is to simply take it into a local leather smith shop and ask their opinion.
Judging the Hardware Quality of the Replica Bag:
The hardware of this bag is original quality. It is nice and heavy. The authentic version of the bag comes with oxidized nickel hardware, and the replica version I received is on par with this. If you purchase a replica bag and the hardware seems uber light or flimsy chances are you may have a bad replica, however hardware weigh does vary by brand and model (e.g. some Louis Vuitton bags have lighter hardware than others).
Judging the Inner Lining Quality of the Replica Bag:
The inner lining of the bag is made from the same calfksin leather as the exterior of the bag, the only exception being that the interior leather is smooth as opposed to grained. On the website YSL describes the interior as “unlined”.
My Overall Rating for this Bag is a 9.8/10:
This replica bag hits every mark of quality I have assessed personally, and I can’t find any flaws with it so I am super happy with it. The ONLY 2 flaws that I can outline are 1) the bag was a bit bent which is a result of the shipping process; 2) the dust bag’s quality wasn’t perfect. The bag got a bit bent on route to me so I have to fill the interior with plastic to help keep its shape. However luckily this is a fixable issue so I’m not super worried about it.
