Classic Lady Dior Bag Replica Review

Hello everyone!

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:

LEATHER QUALITY :

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.

HARDWARE QUALITY :

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!

STITCHING –

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.

INTERIOR –

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.

EXTRAS-

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!

Goyard St Louis Tote Replica Review

goyard replica st louis tote reveal review copy

Hello everyone!

This is the first review of a five part series outlining my Summer ’17 haul (to read my sneak peak article click here), and the first bag I will be reviewing based on popular demand is the Goyard St. Louis tote which I got from DD. The Goyard St. Louis tote is highly sought after, and unlike many other brand (ahem ahem LV) you aren’t likely to spot them out and about as much. This is what really attracted me to the Goyard St. Louis tote because it’s nice to have a bag that is undercover luxury. The Goyard St. Louis tote really reminds me of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, and I like to liken them as cousins that are similar yet very different. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull in the classic Monogram print is very in your face – the brand LV’s initials are splattered all over the bag.

The Goyard St. Louis tote on the other hand is much more demure, and the print is optical-illusion-esque with small logo brand imprints all over. Like the Neverfull the Goyard St. Louis is very functional and versatile offering a LOT of space, and a neat little pouch on the interior to keep your small stuff in. The bag has gorgeously soft leather finishings. Now as a replica bag, I will say that I have not seen many good copies of the Goyard St. Louis. There are a lot of mediocre replicas out there but they aren’t made with the same care and usually something about the pattern tends to be off. However, as usual, I ordered a counter quality copy of the bag which means that these small things are taken into consideration by the manufacturers and this is what make the bag look pretty much identical to the original.

Anyways I will let the pictures speak for themselves (they are worth a thousand words after all), and have a peak below to see them for yourself. Let me know how good of a fake you think it is and if you can spot anything “off” about the bag in the comments.

Prada Esplanade Replica Bag Review

Hello my lovely blog readers!

I had promised to share this review back in 2016 but never got around to it. So sorry for the super long delay but here are the pictures of the amazing Prada Esplanade bag I got in two tone (white/navy blue combo). The bag is a counter quality replica – as you all know by now is the best grade of replica which exists out there. The bag is a mix of calf leather/saffiano leather and I think that the leather combination works well. The bag is the super sophisticated and I think it looks bets paired with a cute little black dress on a night out. Although you could totally pull it off as a day bag as well. The Esplanade is definitely a statement bag – it is not a subtle piece, but it really really stands out so if you are looking for something to give your outfit a bit of a pop or wow factor I would really suggest this Prada model. Without further ado here are pics of my bag:

Perfect Hermes Birkin Replica Review

WHY DID I PURCHASE A HERMES BIRKIN REPLICA?

Ok guys I’m gonna have to preface this post with one word: O.M.G. I have found possibly the best source for Hermes replicas ever. Now before we get to discussing the actual bag I want to say that Hermes is probably one of the most popular knockoffs people go after. Why? Because it is extremely expensive, and puts a dent into most people’s budgets. I mean if you think about it, you can get about 10-15 Louis Vuitton bags for the sticker price of 1 Hermes – that’s pretty crazy considering Louis Vuitton is already a fairly pricey luxury brand itself.

What makes Hermes stand out compared to other brands? I’m gonna have to say it is the emphasis on the leather quality and the overall simplicity of the bag which oozes elegance. At least that’s what stands out to me. As you all know I have been a handbag lover for many years (since my teens) but I have never thought about owning a Hermes bag until very recently.

Another reason why I’ve always hesitated to buy a replica Hermes is because it requires a pretty big investment (the really accurate replica Hermes bags are always over $1000). But I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a 25cm Birkin (I love the smaller Hermes pieces) from Perfect Hermes which came recommended in an email from a blog reader. I bought this bag around 3 months ago when I decided to splurge on my summer haul (I scooped up about 5 new bags during this shopping spree)

WHY DID I PURCHASE FROM PERFECT HERMES? HOW IS THE QUALITY?

The site for this replica Hermes company states they only produce 50 bags a month since they use Hermes’ original hand sewn method to make the bags so it was nice to see how much dedication they show to the process of making the bags. I purchased my bag in a natural tan color with gold hardware, and contrasting white stitching. The bag’s leather is amazing – apparently the import it in from Europe.

You can see through the photos of the bag I have taken the immense quality of the texture. The hardware is also very precise – it’s not real gold hardware (they state no replica company produces it with real gold hardware), but it’s anodized which is good enough. I’ve compared the bag to my friend Michelle’s real Birkin (she has a big authentic Hermes collection – lucky gal), and the differences can’t be spotted by the naked eye. Here are pictures of my bag (get ready to swoon):

HOW DOES THE STITCHING COMPARE TO AUTHENTIC BIRKIN BAGS?

I also went on the consignment site 1st Dibs and searched a Hermes Birkin in a similar contrast stitch color and found it to be actually sewn with much less care than my replica. I found this really shocking since the bag is going for $16,606 on their site and I paid $1400 for my Birkin 25 which is 1/10 of their price.

I often see authentication guides calling out fakes for their sketchy stitching but clearly it seems that the authentic manufacturing standards are hell-bent on perfectly straight stitching either. I will do a more detailed fake vs. real Hermes comparison shortly to compare my bag side by side with an original.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Overall this bag was a great purchase and is holding up very well. The supple leather really stands out and I think you are getting an excellent replica for the price being charged. The bag came packaged in the Hermes gift wrapping with a bow and all, and they used DHL for shipping (which was free). Since every order is a custom make they take about 2 weeks to actually make the bag and then the shipping took about another week.

The company took a deposit for half the price of the bag by wire transfer in order to begin the work on it. They emailed me photos of the bag once it was done, and when I gave them the OK and paid the remaining half they emailed me the tracking slip. It was a fairly smooth transaction minus the fact that my DHL tracking number changed midway through causing some alarm on my end. Overall though I really think they are worth checking out if you are looking for a spot on Hermes replica.

Designer-Discreet.ru Review: Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Cassandre Tassel Chain Replica Bag

yves-saint-laurent-cassandre-replica-authentic-fake-real-designer-discreet

Ok so I really don’t know who hasn’t seen photos of the YSL Cassandre Tassel Chain bag floating around on social media by now, and totally fallen in love with the bag. I personally have had this bag on my mind for about a year and a half but never really got around to taking the initiative to purchase it until the end of this very summer that just slipped by us. I LOVE the va-va-voom style of the bag. I personally think the YSL Cassandre is a bag you carry when you want to stand out, not when you want to blend in. I have seen a couple of people carry the bag in person and it just has this magnetic pull (for me at least) which usually leaves me wanting the bag that second at any cost. As you all read in my previous review about the Chloe Hudson bag (click here to read it if you haven’t!) I had a mini haul from Designer Discreet this summer I never got around to properly reviewing for you all, but I finally found some spare time to put it up!

This Yves Saint Laurent bag is a superb replica – I mean I could go on talking about it but I really feel like for both the YSL and Chloe bag the photos speak best for themselves. Both bags are basically perfectly crafted and as an experienced replica shopper (I guess I can call myself that … I have been doing this for over 7 years :-P) I really am finding it hard to find any flaws with them. Of course there’s things like date codes, but I’m not trying to resell the bags as originals (which is completely unethical in my opinion) so I could really care less.

A lot of YSL chain bags I see are in a soft calfskin leather but I decided to opt for something a little more glamorous which was the coated leather. I love the coated leather because I find it harder to scratch or dent than smooth calfskin, and we all know that on a night out having to worry about keeping your bag pristine is not ideal. I went for black – not surprising to any reader who understand my favorite color palette a.k.a neutrals. Overall I am very pleased with the bag and love the contrast between the black and gold hardware. I’ve posted many photos of the bag to follow which you can take a glimpse at, and let me know what you think in the comments!
