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:
