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:
Below you will find my review on my YSL Sac De Jour replica bag which I purchased this past Christmas. I have a new haul coming in the mail so I’m getting all these way overdue reviews completed to give you all some shopping advice as to which replicas I’ve recently purchased are good vs. garbage.
Why Did I Buy This Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Replica Bag?
I bought this the Sac De Jour Nano replica bag as an everyday bag. I got the smallest size because I am really into mini versions of every bag by every designer at the moment – and I’m not sure if this obsession will fade because the more minis I buy the more addicted I become. Anyways I digress – back the YSL Sac De Jour Nano … this bag is a beaut and I believe it can really help dress up any outfit because it has a flair of sophistication. I would not suggest you get the Nano size unless you have a light load to carry with you on a daily basis – but the good news is the bag comes in larger sizes as well so if you love the look you can easily just purchase a larger size!
It is often requested that I review more men’s replica items, and in this post I will be honoring that request by reviewing three Louis Vuitton men’s wallets.
One of the wallets, the Multiple wallet in Damier Graphite, was purchased for my husband about two years ago, and I never reviewed it initially but asked him to borrow it for this post to show you guys how you can expect a good replica wallet to hold up through the wear and tear of everyday life. My husband uses this wallet everyday and he is not super gentle with it so I’d say that the average person could expect the same results.
When it comes to buying replicas, especially for the first time, I have always suggested that people start with something small like a wallet because: a) you are not spending a lot of money so if you get burned it shouldn’t be too bad, b) it allows you to judge a seller on their quality without once again spending a lot of money, and c) if you are on the fence about replicas it will help you become more familiarized with what to expect when shopping for them. Wallets are one thing that I personally would never buy an authentic version of because the replicas available are of amazing quality, and the authentics are priced disproportionately high – I would rather purchase a fake wallet and then use my savings towards an authentic bag where I believe I am actually getting something I can justify dropping that much cash on.
I think that the Multiple wallet is the one of the best wallets for men offered by Louis Vuitton, regardless of whether you are buying fake or real. The wallet has room for bills as well as just enough slots for any credit cards or ID you may carry with you. The original price on the Louis Vuitton website for this wallet is $490 USD. Take a look at the photos below to see how the wallet has held up:
Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Multiple Replica Wallet
I have A LOT of reviews in store for y’all in the month of January as I had a mega haul that I received for Christmas, and also things I treated myself to for the new year! When I first began this blog it was because there were literally zero resources for replica handbag shoppers, and I decided to try to create a site where people could send in reviews so we could filter the bad from the good. However now as I’ve become a seasoned replica handbag shopper I take delight in sharing how accurate good replica bags can be, and love that there are others who consider this blog a valuable resource! Above I have posted a sneak peak of the latest goodies I have purchased which were Celine and Louis Vuitton replica wallets. These are the specific models I will be reviewing:
Large Black Céline Zipped Wallet in Pebbled Calfksin Leather
Zippy Louis Vuitton Wallet in Mahina Leather
Victorine Louis Vuitton Wallet in Damier Ebene
Smart Louis Vuitton Wallet in Epi Leather in Bleu Marine
Multiple Louis Vuitton Wallet in Black Epi Leather
Celine & Louis Vuitton Replica Wallet Collection
Aside from these wallets I will have reviews upcoming on some Gucci, Celine, Stella McCartney, and Louis Vuitton bags! So get excited! Also: feel free to follow me on my new instagram account I just set up (yes – I’m a tech dinosaur) by clicking here!
The Louis Vuitton Girolata bag is named after a coastal town on an Island close to France and Italy, and I can definitely see why as the bag embodies the spirit of warm weather and everyone a person can love about summer. I actually purchased the bag during the summer of 2018, and never got around to having the time to review it until now! The bag comes in both Damier Azur, and Mahina leather.
I purchased the bag in the color Galet. The original price of the bag on the official Louis Vuitton website is $3,650 USD. I got it for about 1/8th of that price as a replica. The bag was purchased from LM, which is a new site I stumbled upon that specializes in Louis Vuitton replica bags.
My first Mahina leather replica bag was purchased about 6 years ago from a seller who is thankfully no longer in business. What came in the mail was a plastic-y piece of junk with horrible, inaccurate perforations, and I basically threw the bag in the back of my closet. I eventually ended up donating it to charity. So ya – I have been there and done that when it comes to getting burned when purchasing a replica bag.
I basically wrote off any replica bags that purported to be Mahina leather after that until two years ago when I decided to take the plunge and order a Louis Vuitton Babylone replica bag which turned out to be absolutely stunning and blew me away in terms of accuracy (you can read the review here). After I received that bag I knew that replica manufacturers had really stepped up their game when it came to Mahina leather replicas. This past summer I decided to chance it again and get a Girolata which was a newly released LV bag model.
