It has come to my attention that my blog is being copied by some company posing as a blogger at mau-fashion.com.
That blog is run by a fake person named “Maurielle” who basically steals content from other sites and pretends it is their own. They only write positive reviews about Luxurytastic (who I guess owns the blog). They have stolen many photos from my blog and a lot of other content from other sites as well, so I just wanted to give everyone a heads up in case they stumble upon that site because their sketchy tactic indicate they are most likely scamming people!
For example this is a picture of mine which they have stolen (the photo was originally part of a super helpful guide that showed how to differentiate between varying qualities of Louis Vuitton replicas you can read here).
One example of a photo that mau-fashion.com has stolen from me and as you can see they have added poorly done textboxes around my original watermarks.

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.
LV knockoffs or replica Louis Vuitton bags are everywhere these days, and as other reviews on this blog have shown some of them are so good it’s almost impossible to tell they are fake. Unfortunately, that is not the case with this replica LV Monogram Alma bag, and this Designerpurses.ru review will make it clear why.
Now the bag doesn’t look horrible at first glance, and is a replica that many first time buyers are happy to get because it somewhat resembles the authentic version. However to anyone with moderate knowledge of Louis Vuitton’s handbags it is obvious that there is a lot wrong, so if you’re wondering what’s wrong with this knockoff Louis Vuitton bag, and at the same time want to improve your “how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton” skills, this review is a must read!
This is a review received by email for pursemall.ru from a blog reader named Jill (pseudonym used to protect Jill’s real identity).
When I first received the review I visited pursemall.ru (which I have heard mentioned a couple of times by several blog readers in the comments), and was struck by the poor site design. That would be a red flag to myself personally while shopping, however it is easy for first time buyers to be so enamored with the idea of saving money on designer goods, that they would overlook this and shop on the site anyways. The price point of the bag is also another red flag that would have triggered concern from me because you usually can’t get good replicas at that low of a price point in my experience. Here’s Jill’s experience in her own words:
I have already warned you about Jessica of e8bags on the Scam Sellers page here, but it looks like her site domain name keeps morphing and is now e8bbag.net. Although the domain keeps changing, Jessica’s tactics do not. She keeps scamming people. One blog reader named Tracey just recently went through the headache of dealing with Jessica and has emailed in her experience. Here are some pics of the order she placed on the site:
