Balenciaga Classic City (Metallic Edge) Replica Bag Review

Hey everyone! So last year as part of my bi-annual replica bag haul I scored a Balenciaga Classic City in taupe gris with the metallic edge detailing. The real bag retails for $2,490 on Barney’s and is completely sold out on Balenciaga’s official website. The bag is super luxe yet very functional at the same time. The shoulder strap the bag comes with makes it a no fuss bag in the sense that you can simply throw it on your shoulder and go out. I’ve always personally had a soft spot for bags with shoulder straps since they make carrying the bag so easy, and help add a nonchalant vibe to your overall look as these celebs showcase while carrying the bag:

Another aspect of the bag I love is all the small details starting with the braided handles. I think that the braided handles add such a defining touch to all of Balenciaga’s models and really think it is one of those signature touches that can help you easily identify the brand. The braided handles add a beautiful sense of femininity to an otherwise very tom-boyish bag in my opinion. Another defining feature of Balenciaga’s classic bags are the tassels. There are tassels on every zipper of the bag (on the top and the front) and this is another signature design feature which screams Balenciaga to me.

Hello dolls!

Hope everyone’s (almost) summer is going well! This is a brief post in which I wanted to give everyone a sneak peak of some of my recent (and AWESOME) replica bag purchases. I will be doing detailed reviews on each bag within the next couple of weeks but decided to quickly post a group shot of the haul for everyone to take a look at. My purchases include: a Louis Vuitton Keepall 40 in Damier Graphite (for my husband), a Gucci Dionysus, a Balenciaga Metallic Edge City, a Lady Dior, and a Goyard St. Louis tote. The bags are all outstanding (some a bit more than others), and I look forward to sharing more in depth reviews of each bag with you! In the mean time, let me know which review you are most looking forward to! 🙂

Replica Balenciaga vs. Authentic Handbag Buying Guide

This post will be dedicated to mentioning all the things you should look for in a replica Balenciaga handbag before purchasing it in order to ensure it truly is as good as the real thing.

balenciaga replicaSo beautiful… how I love Balenciaga! What do you think of this replica?

The Zippers:
Although this may seem like such a small feature of a handbag it is actually one which you must really pay attention to in order to make sure the replica is reflective of a real balenciaga handbag. Balenciaga uses zippers created by Lampo. Usually fake handbags come with zippers engraved with the capitalized word Lampo – these are clearly fake. Good Balenciaga replicas should have Lampo zippers which have the word Lampo written in a slanted or italics font. In addition to this the “L” from Lampo must extend to the end of the word. A trademark symbol should also appear beside the world Lampo. Usually when my friends show off their replica Balenciaga’s to me I take a look at the zippers first. If the replica artists have paid attention to the zippers it is a sign that they have an eye for detail and will follow through with other finer or subtle details on the rest of the handbag.

The Leather:
Leather oh leather. This is the most visible part of your handbag so clearly it is a big point to consider when purchasing a replica. Authentic Balenciaga uses either goatskin or lambskin leather depending on which collection a specific handbag is from. The leather is very soft and feels quite smooth and carefree in your hands. It is almost silky in a sense. Authentic Balenciaga leather also has a shine which is not overpowering (as many of the fakes are) but at the same time noticeable. Its leather is distressed but not over the top cracked out. The tassels attached to the handbag should be equally as soft. The leather of a Balenciaga plays a big part in creating its elegance which is why it is important to pay attention to this when you are shopping around for a replica.

A lot of replicas unforutnately are overly cracked out and overly shiny. This completely takes away from the beauty of the Balenciaga and trust me girlfriend will be noticeable from a mile away to a true fashionista. I think that replicas don’t offend companies like Balenciaga when done properly but when it is horrible its completely misrepresents their product.

So check with any site you are thinking of buying from to make sure the materials they use are the same as the authentic and if they aren’t DO NOT BUY. Your bag will look tacky and spotted as a fake from a mile away.

The difference is clear and upsetting. The fake does not hold the beauty of the real handbag.

Another more minute yet equally important feature of a Balenciaga.If the end of the straps are folded over this is an immediate sign that the Balenciaga is fake. Fake Balenciaga handbags usually have a more squared off bale.

The Handles:
Finally one last key part of a Balenciaga I would like to discuss with my fellow shopping peers. The handles of an authentic Balenciaga should not have a finished or coated look. The Balenciaga should have handles which are weaved, or braided with leather. Balenciaga themselves call it “sueded leather”, which has a raw appearance to it and looks more like rope or a shoelace. This is a detail fakes often miss unfortunately.

You should really pay attention to all these details if you want to find a replica handbag which truly reflects the edgy yet chic personality of a Balenciaga handbag. 

Also I will be posting guides for Celine replica buying, Louis Vuitton replica buying etc. in the near future! We should aim as shoppers to buy what I call “authentic replica designer handbags” which means they have every part of an authentic bag with the price tag being the only key difference if you know what I mean.

Balecianga Replica Handbag Review! … www.designerdiscreet.net

1. Website Usability: The website design is actually slightly cute compared to the typical replica handbag out there on the web. It seems as if the operators of this site have put some effort into marketing, The usability is actually pretty decent too, however I wish they would label their products with the actual designer handbag names as it would make it a lot easier when you know exactly what you are looking for. I actually emailed them this suggestion and they seem to be open to change and improvement so I guess the usability should become better since they say they are fairly new in the market.

2. Selection/Variety of Bags: The variety of handbags isn’t as much as I’d like it to be, but once again I guess they are new and still expanding. Right now they seem to have 4 brands: Chanel, LV, Hermes, and Balenciaga… but I will say this since I have purchased my bag a while ago, Chanel wasn’t up then so clearly they are updating and adding to their site. Another difference about this site compared to the usual is that they say they are very “picky” with choosing what handbags and that really helps us shoppers have to worry less about receiving a crappy product after placing an order. They also have a request a handbag service which I haven’t tried but I guess could come really handy in finding a specific bag you have been searching for forever! Apparently they will have shoes as well soon since their wording makes reference to it… I hope Louboutins are added cause I definitely have been on the search for a good pair of those 😉

3. Order Process/Customer Service: They are paypal verified however you can’t login to your paypal but instead it seems to be integrated into their shopping cart and you put in your info and paypal charges you. My statement was charged by Paypal under the name T.A.G which is I guess their merchant name? I definitely feel safe with the site cause paypal is probably the most trust-able payment processor out there on the web right now.

4. Quality: I ordered a Balenciaga Dark Brown City Classique and I have to say I am truly truly impressed with this purchase. I actually have a friend with a real Balenciaga and I gotta say the two are really fully alike! Down to the s

mallest details of the zippers and how the handles are sewn, this site seems to have it down in terms of quality! Everything seems to be spot on. The leather has a very rich feel to it, and the bag came with a dust bag and authenticity cards to help it seem even more real. I have added a lot of pictures of the bag and comparisons to the authentic thing to this post so you blog readers can really get a good look at it. I will have to say I am truly impressed and have even placed an order for 2 more bags from them (an LV and a Chanel) since there is a multiple buy discount (on their front page) and am looking forward to receiving them… I truly hope their quality is as impressive as the Balenciaga’s has been!

5. Image Comparison: The bag does match the picture posted on the site, which is a very comforting fact. The lighting does make it seem a little bit darker than it is in reality though.
