Buying Replica Handbags Online? Here are Some Key Tips!

I was a newbie when it came to buying replica handbags online a while ago just like many others so I have compiled a list of what I think are the most important tips when it comes to buying anything replica (or not) online whether it be a handbag, shoes, watches etc. I would have personally found these tips very useful when I was new at buying replicas so I have posted them since I am often asked what tips are important! Read through and feel free to comment what you believe is more important when it comes to shopping for replicas online, or share any recent shopping experiences!

Tip #1: Don’t Fall in Love Too Quickly!

When you are shopping for replicas remember not to fall in love too quickly and make a purchase right away. Unfortunately since replica handbags are a more shady industry than stepping into a Louis Vuitton boutique for example and buying a bag in person, you need to always vet any store before you finalize a purchase with them! How can you vet them? Just do a quick online Google search to see if you can find any reviews!

Tip #2: Don’t Believe Just Any Review You Read!

When you do search reviews online make sure you also vet the blogger! Unfortunately there are individuals like Eva Knox who runs Pursevalley who owns the blog through which she promotes the site so there is some deception out there and you have to be careful when shopping to make up for sneaky individuals!

Tip #3: Look at the Quality Description on the Bag! 

When you are browsing a particular site make sure you look at the description of the products you are looking at to see what the level of quality of the handbags are. If you read my previous post called “The Art of Buying a Replica Handbag” you will find out that not all replica handbags are truly equal and you can definitely find some bags that are better while some that are worse! If you avoid qualities like AAA, and instead look to purchase the counter quality handbags you will save yourself a big headache and a lot of dollars, if you are after superfake handbags that is (a.k.a as good as the real deal)!

Tip #4: Communicate with the Seller!

See if the seller is responsive before you go ahead and place an order with them. If they are not responsive then you should avoid them as they could very well be scamming you. The more you vet the seller beforehand the less worry you will have afterwards!

Tip #5: Make Sure the Product Will Look Just Like the Photos!

Perhaps the most important tip is to make sure that the handbag will indeed look as advertised on the seller’s website. Many times sellers will put up one photo of a counter quality bag for example and then send you an AAA model. In order to avoid this you can send a message to the seller to make sure that they will indeed send a bag that looks like the photos advertised. Also reputable sellers usually indicate this on their website!

Tip #6: No Website? No Purchase. 

Always make sure that the seller you are interested in has a website through which you can link them and contact them if necessary. There are many cases in which people buy off a place like Instagram and then never see the light of their handbag or money again! Avoid shopping on social media generally as with a simple click an account name can be changed, or worse even completely deleted and you may lose complete trace of your order and money!

So You Want to Buy a Louis Vuitton Replica? Tips for Snagging as Close to the Real Deal As Possible.

We all love Louis handbags – we can’t say enough about its timelessness or general chicness. But when you are in the market for a used or replica Louis Vuitton bag there are certain dead give aways that you need to truly be aware of before you make a purchase in order to avoid the “fake stare” – a term I have dubbed to describe the leering eyes of those who have trained themselves to spot a fake a mile away and give a smug look to the owner once they have done so. It is a horrible feeling but oh so preventable if you educate yourself on what to look for when shopping for that perfect LV (whether it be a Neverfull, Palermo, Tivoli, Speedy etc.). The following are key tips I recommend:

1. LOOK AT THE T’S ON THE LOUIS VUITTON STAMP.

The T’s on the handbag are distinct and do not touch one another or come close to even doing so. This what the authentic handbag looks like and what any handbag you are considering purchasing should look like.
Spot-a-Fake-LV-Purse-Page-004This is a fake LV handbag. The T’s are touching one another giving away that it is fake right away to any discerning eye. Please watch out for this if you are after a handbag that looks exactly like the original. If you are not willing to give as much scrutiny then you need not mind this post.  

2. LOOK AT THE “MADE IN FRANCE” STAMP

If the handbag says “made in France” it is correct. If it is written in caps “MADE IN FRANCE” the handbag is a fake and this a deadly giveaway to anybody who knows anything about LV’s. Please be careful about this ladies as this is one thing which is easy to miss yet so important! However do keep in mind that LV does not only produce their handbags in France but it can also be stamped with a different country’s name such as the US or Spain. As long as it is not in all caps you are safe.

3. MAKE SURE THE COLOR IS LISTED ON THE LV WEBSITE

Looking for a handbag, and found a color you have fallen in love with? That is fine my darlings but please make sure the color is part of the official color collection by LV otherwise it will certainly be a dead giveaway indicating your handbag is fake. So please double – and maybe even triple – check to make sure the color is an official color. This will save you a LOT of embarrassment when you are asked about it by others.

4. MAKE SURE THE INTERIOR OF THE HANDBAG MATCHES THE PRINT ON THE OUTSIDE

Louis-Vuitton-Neo-Neverfull-Bag-Interior

Louis Vuitton has recently released more variety in their classic Monogram Canvas Neverfulls in that the interiors are available in other colors including the fuschia and mustard yellow we can see here. These are called the Neo Neverfull bags. I personally love the mustard yellow interior. Which one do you prefer? I need to get my hands on a good replica of these and share with you guys!

If you are buying a piece from the Monogram collection please ensure that the inside is the same lining color as the authentic Monogram Canvas collection (brown interior) and not the deep red like the Damier Ebene collection. There is nothing that screams fake as much as an incorrect interior does. Remember that when it comes to buying a designer handbag – the inside is just as important at the outside. It is all about vanity at the end of the day, and it would be a horrible injustice to own a handbag from a manufacturer that couldn’t even respect the basics elements of design of the brand they are seeking to mimic. Let me know if I missed anything important in the comments below and I will update the post!

Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Replica Handbag Review

Hey guys! So I bought the LV Soft Lockit in the darker beige/camel-ish color tone (not sure of the official name) from Anna (her email is: annalong8182@gmail.com) and it turned out beautiful! The leather is very soft and you can definitely tell that the quality is up there in terms of replicas. The interior is actually genuine suede as well, and the stampings are generally on point! The only thing I will say is that the hardware (as with all replicas) is not as substantial as my authentic bags but nonetheless this is not something that you can really spot visually, and is more of a weight/feel thing. I have yet to see ANY replica bag that has hardware comparable to the authentic except one C****L bag I bought a while ago which was a lucky shot I guess. Anyways I have posted the photos below. Let me know what you guys think of the bag in the comments!

The Art of Buying a Replica Handbag

prada handbag saffiano comparison fake vs real black

An AAA replica of a Prada Saffiano double zip tote and a counter quality version. The AAA was one of the first AAA replicas I bought and boy was the quality bad!

Replica handbags are oh so alluring. The idea of saving thousands while dropping only hundreds for a perfect copy of THAT bag you just saw in THAT designer boutique is enough to make anyone drool, myself included. However you shouldn’t think it is just that simple to purchase a replica. After shopping for replica for over 8 years (began of course when I was a not so wealthy teenager) myself I have realized there is an art to it just as there is as an art to anything else. You don’t just do a quick google search for “replica handbag” and purchase on the first website that pops up when it comes to replicas since there is a lot of investigation necessary to make sure the website you want to purchase from is legit and is not a scam that will rip you off!

First of all if you are going to purchase a replica handbag there is one thing I have realized throughout the years: you must be willing to take a risk. Yes purchasing replica handbags is very much like a game of Russian roulette; you can either get lucky or you can bite the bullet! For example many of the good sellers I have found only accept payment through money orders such as Western Union and although at first this frightened me greatly since I risked basically losing all of my money, I have grown quite comfortable with the process over time – I just always make sure to vet any seller/company before I actually send my payments through to avoid being scammed. The way I personally see it however is that after a few bullets you will get lucky and find a trustworthy seller or few who you can stick with and will take care of you! At least that is how it has worked out for me, although I am always open to finding better sellers who have more precise quality and work with better materials.

Another part of the art is to be able to recognize quality! This once again does come back to the trust between yourself and the seller however there are a lot of other factors which come into play as well! The most basic thing you can do is to check what quality the seller is advertising for their bags. There are several tiers of handbag qualities when it comes to replicas which include the A grade replicas which range from disgusting bags which scream 100% fake upon first glance, to bags which may have the form down but lack the quality in terms of materials. I personally stay away from any bags labelled AAA, AAA+, AAAA etc. since they usually equate to junk.

For myself personally when I am shopping for an item whether it be replica or authentic I like to make sure I get the cream of the crop; just because you are buying a knockoff does not mean you have to buy one that screams fake. The quality of bags that I personally purchase are strictly one to one or counter quality as they are called in Asia. The counter quality bags are considered bags which are good enough to be placed on the counter at Celine, Louis Vuitton, Prada etc. so those are the handbags you should aim for if you are after a replica or knockoff! Anything less and you will be feeling queasy, that is if you have any experiences with the authentic bags.

If you have never purchased a real designer handbag before the AAA might seem like amazing quality but once you get your hands on an authentic bag you will be able to see what you are missing out on, and you’ll never be able to look at the bag you just purchased in the same way. My first time I ever got tricked into buying an AAA purse was when I shopped on Ioffer a few year ago and I purchased a Prada Saffiano. The bag was adorable to me at the time, but once I stopped by the Prada boutique to see the Saffianos in person I was heartbroken as I realized I had spent so much money on a piece of absolute junk! Luckily I found a seller later on who sells amazing Prada’s and I will post a comparison between the two handbags for everyone to get a glance at the quality in depth. Overall as you may have realized by now purchasing replicas can be very rewarding (I’d like a single person who wouldn’t like to save thousands monthly especially if they are a fashionista like myself to comment below) but you just need to make sure you know the art of buying one well!

celine-luggage-nano-mini-micro-authentic-replica

Another quality comparison between two Celine bags I have purchased. One is an AAA while the other is a counter quality – the difference is in the details even though both look similar from afar. If you are a detail oriented person it is always better to go for the counter quality bags as you most likely like myself don’t want anyone to think your bag is fake!

Can Fake or Replica Louis Vuitton Handbags Patina?

This is a question often asked by people who are looking into getting a fake Louis Vuitton purse, and I actually had the exact same question myself! Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to google any blogs back when I first started buying replicas so it was more of a trial and experience process for myself. I have purchased MANY Louis Vuitton fakes over the years and have definitely learnt a thing or two about what you can realistically expect from a faux bag.

The most important feature I would say to look for in a replica Louis Vuitton purse is the patina ability of the bag as this will tell you a lot about the quality of the purse overall. The patina basically refers to the ability of the handles to darken over time. My authentic Louis Vuitton purses patina beautifully in that the handles age over time and gain this darker look to them. This is basically one of the indicators as to how you can tell a new Louis Vuitton from an old or aged one. Below you can see a picture between my old LV Totally MM Monogram Canvas which has patina’d over a 6 month period vs the new Louis Vuitton Totally GM in Damier Azur I just received a few days ago from my latest order. I bought the bag for a trip and have abused it quite a bit but it has been an amazing travel bag and I would definitely recommend it! The two pockets on the side make it even an ideal diaper bag I would say if you have little ones and need a nice big bag to throw all of their junk into – I will definitely be using the Totally as a fashionable diaper bag if I am ever in the position to have little hands around!

Louis Vuitton bags look much more gorgeous with age, in my opinion at least. I personally don’t love the sight of a new Louis Vuitton with the super light handles as I don’t think it looks as sophisticated as bags with the patina that have an overall darker look. When you are shopping for a Louis Vuitton handbag whether it be real or fake make sure you check to the handles for the color to get an idea of the quality of the bag. If you are buying a fake the buyer or company should mention that the handles are made of real cowhide leather and thus able to patina. I have tend to found that if the bag is AAA it is usually made of plastic handles (I bought a horrible Speedy in the past that did not patina no matter what I did!) which do not patina but if the bag is a counter quality model then it is made of real cowhide handles and will patina. A bag that will not patina is a telltale sign of a fake handbag so stay away from any seller that does not promise or claim their bag will patina!

If you want your bag to patina more quickly there are a few things you can do including putting olive oil on the handles and leaving it out in the sun for a bit! You will notice the handles darken a bit and loose their super light color. Otherwise if you don’t want to force the patina you can just the bag be and enough use over several months will cause the color to naturally change on the handles. Overall remember that if you want to buy a fake or replica Louis Vuitton make sure the handles will be capable of patina-ing if you don’t want to waste your money!
