Who are you?

The Purse Queen was started in August of of 2010 by me, Angie (short for Angelina), as a blog that reviews authentic & replica handbags I have purchased throughout the years, and  replica websites as well. I am your typical fashion obsessed woman in her 30s (think Blair Waldorf or Serena van Der Woodsen post-Gossip Girl) based in New York, but frequently travel around the globe (my favorite vacation spot is essentially anywhere in Europe).

When I stepped over to the dark side of replicas there was zero guidance on where to shop, how to shop, what to shop for, and how to pick out a good replica bag so I was literally shopping blindfolded, and made many big purchasing mistakes along the way. I have been disappointed, scammed, and also amazingly surprised as to what I have been able to find throughout the years and believe I have gained somewhat of a strong expertise on the area of replica bags (I never thought I would know so much about fake bags – but hey, here I am!).

Why do you buy fake bags? Can’t you just afford the real deal?

Many people like to assume that those who purchase fake or replica handbags simply cannot afford to purchase authentic ones. This is a big myth as I am personally able to walk into any designer store and drop the money for the real deal, as I am financially fortunate, which is a great blessing, however the truth is I think many luxury goods are way overpriced and not convinced I am getting my money’s worth. I know I’m not the only one who believes this as many of my friends, and blog readers with deep pockets agree. Other reasons many have turned to buying replicas include that they want to make sure they love a specific bag before splurging on the real deal, or they want a spare bag to use while their authentic bag is kept in good condition (as they are hefty investments).

So after years of paying full price at Harrods, Nordstrom, Selfridges, and the designer boutiques themselves I took a plunge into replicas and mostly haven’t turned back since. However it is important to note that there are still many bags that I would only buy the authentic version of (and have) as their replica counterpart’s leave much to be desired. I believe I now know how to accurately guesstimate which designer handbags are most likely to turn out as a good as opposed to bad.

Why do you blog about replica bags?

As mentioned earlier when I began to shop for replicas the replica world was a scary place with zero guidance. There was very little information on sellers and every purchase was a  gamble. This resulted on me personally wasting a lot of money before I got into the groove of replica shopping. I have created this blog to cater to a community of wonderful shoppers that seek both authentic and replica bags.

This blog is for fashionistas who want to know how to hunt for a good replica bag. I provide bag reviews, brand guides, website reviews, and general shopping advice on designer handbags. I have aimed to create a useful shopping tool to help navigate the murky waters of the replica world.

Another reason I blog about replicas is because I find it absolutely crazy how good some replicas bags are and need people to share my hauls with, as the excitement is too much for me to contain just to myself!

How can I contact you?

Before you contact me I suggest you peruse the site. A lot of information is sprinkled throughout the blog about almost everything replica-related. However if you are craving for more, you can feel free to follow me on social media including Instagram, and Youtube. If you have any personal questions feel free to shoot me an Email!

    Hello Angie,
    I’m from Spain, and it’s my first time buying a replica, and I’m going to buy it from Designer Discreet, as you recommend.
    I can’t decide for a model, but I want a gucci, in particular, the “Marmont Matelassé”, and I’d like to know if you recommend me to buy that model.
    I’d also like to buy one prada, and I was wondering if you could recommend me a model in particular (the most close to an original one),
    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Best Regards,

    Hi, I’m handbad obsessed as well and have spent a fortune on the real thing. Now I’m done with that!! But not my obsession. I’m looking for a really food Chanel. I see them on many sites but I want one that looks real! And I don’t want to get scammed! Any advice on where I can order one? I would also like a Gucci disco bag that’s very authentic looking.
    What’s your advice? I’m new to this!

    Hi Angie, I love your blog! So informative. I’ve been checking out counter luxury and saw a LV wallet I want (start small like you suggested). Their the wallet in their photo looks really authentic, but I’m still hesitant. What questions should I be asking them before I make a purchase? I’m just worried that the final wallet I get won’t be like the one in the picture

    Hi, I was just wondering if there’s anyone who’s brought a Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM from DD? If so what’s the quality like? I know people talk about it being ‘counter quality’ but what does this actually mean? Is the bag made out of the same leather as the original? Also what’s the difference between the original and the replicas other than obviously price tag and that one is actually made in the Louis Vuitton warehouse?? I’m really wanting to order one but just want some more info off someone who actually has one. Thank you xx

    Hi Angie! I’m new to this world – really excited to dive in, but doing some preliminary research first – and your blog is fantastic. Just wanted to mention, in case you don’t already know, that there’s someone using your writing as the basis for a very shady seeming site. Here’s the link to it, if you’re inclined to check it out or ask them to stop using your work: https://storify.com/YLightluxe4life/the-world-of-replica-handbags-1

    Thanks for all the great information you’ve shared. I feel *almost* ready to make a purchase, now that I’ve read through your posts.

    It came at 6-7 weeks and would have been longer if I didn’t change my bag type. They wouldn’t give me a straight answer on the hold up, so I switched and it came in 1.5 weeks.

    I recently made a purchase from DD. It’s been a week and I just received a tracking number. It hasn’t updated yet, and I realzie that it could take a few days to. My question is approximately how long does it take to get once tracking number is received? Thank you,
