Spot Replica Louis Vuitton Bags: Authentic vs. Replica Monogram Totally Buying Guide

 
authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv1

Pictured is the Louis Vuitton replica bag I will be comparing to the authentic model. Please keep in mind there is a size difference between the two as one is a PM, while the other is an MM. Can you guess which is the fake handbag and which is the real?

I have compiled pictures to compare my replica Louis Vuitton Totally MM bag in monogram canvas to an original (albeit used) for resale on Fashionphile. I purchased my handbag for approximately $279 USD with free shipping included (from Designer Discreet) over 2 years ago while the handbag on Fashionophile is listed for resale at $1,150 USD. The bag’s condition is listed as:

Item Condition: Preowned – Very Good

Exterior: patina of vachetta, wear on piping trim, light corner wear, light surface wear

Handle: patina, surface wear, small marks, light water marks, light scratches

Interior: small minor marks on main section, ink marks and wear in side panel pockets

Hardware: scratches

I have really used and abused my replica Totally MM bag as I have taken it on several vacations where it has primarily served as a beach bag and has bared more than its fare share of the brunt of my travels (I am not sure about you guys but I tend to be very careless on vacations and so I never take any authentic purses with me!). Anyways the bag has held up very well considering all of the abuse it has gone through under my care and the patina has shaped out quite nicely as well. I  hope this post helps those who are looking to buy an authentic purse avoid getting a fake in its place as we all know Ebay and the online world are generally quite notorious for that, and even our most favorite of consignment shops can slip in a fake here or there (these services are run by humans after all)! Take a look at the photographs before to picture the differences between the authentic vs. replica Louis Vuitton Totally MM, and let me know whether you’d go fake or real in the comments below for this particular Louis Vuitton! I would personally go for the fake as the differences are really nonexistent between the two as shown by the photos!

This is the Fashionphile listing for the authentic purse. The handbag is selling for $1,150 USD + free domestic shipping within the United States. The bag is alright overall in terms of condition based on the photographs but definitely looks used.

Starting with a sideshot of the handbag the differences are not very pronounced between the two. The only key difference that shows through some replicas is the stitching which is not to bad on this replica bag.

The bottoms of both the bags are identical except for which pattern falls to the centre where the stitch occurs. This is where the size difference’s importance comes in as the bag on the right (the authentic) is a PM which is a smaller size so the stitch pattern falls at a different placed. If you take a look at the authentic Totally MM I have pictured below the comparison photo you will notice that the alignment is the same as the replica as both have the Logo cut through and the stitch occur between the two.

The tags of both the replica bag and the authentic bag are not too far off. Louis Vuitton’s fonts have been known to variate slightly throughout the years so the two are quite comparable. The color of the thread on the tag of the authentic purse (pictured right) is less vibrant and more dull compared to the replica and the stitching is a bit more well done I will say. In person however this difference is quite negligible as I have walked into the Louis Vuitton store many times with my replica handbag on pictured on the left.  authentic vs replica louis vuitton totally fake vs real lv comparison inside of the bag

Last but not leas is the interior of both handbags which is virtually the same (the lighting variance on both photos may make both look a bit different but I have compared the interior to my authentic Louis Vuitton handbags and it is not too far off.

Overall the canvas of the handbags are the same which I will say is one of the most important qualities you should be on the watch for if you are looking to purchase a replica Louis Vuitton bag as it is the biggest giveaway. If the replica manufacturers improve the stitching of the bag to a finer degree I personally believe it will be extremely difficult to tell between the two purses at all as that I will say is what can really separate the two when it comes to the nitty gritty details. Other than that however it is very hard for the average Joe or Jane to decipher between the two! Once again let me know what you think in the comments below!

Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière 35 Replica Review

 

Hey guys! The holiday season is comin’ up, and we all know what that means: shopping, LOTS of shopping! But the good news is that if you have any handbag lovers on your list, I will be posting my annual favorite bags for the holidays, that can help any lady or gent buy their friend,lover, or loved one an awesome handbag or accessory which is both hot for the season and amazing in terms of quality (I will try each one out myself). Today’s review will be on the Speedy Bandoulière 35 in Damier Ebene which would definitely fit perfectly on the list of perfect gifts as it is not only a Louis Vuitton classic, but a designer handbag classic in general that any purse infatuated individual would LOVE (and I gladly speak on their part) to receive!

I have decided to keep the reviews going forward more picture oriented as I know that you really have to see it to believe it with replicas. It is tough to trust anyone’s advice on buying them, especially since the internet is full of oh so many scams nowadays. So I am going to let my pictures do the talking (not all of it, but most of it) going forward! So let’s begin by showcasing the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière 35 in MDamier Ebene that I purchased. Ok so why this bag? I know I recently did a review on a Speedy 35 in Monogram Canvas without the shoulder strap from Counter Luxury and the bag was great, but honestly after wearing it I realized it was a bit heavy to carry around especially if you carry around a ton of stuff like me. Well the only reason I got a 35 was so that it would have the capacity to be stuffed up with all my things on a high maintenance kind of day. But alas it was really really heavy, and I began to long for that strap. So I gave away my first Speedy to my sister, who of course quite happily accepted it.

Now that I have received my 35 with the shoulder strap I feel much more happy, and love how the weight of the handbag is more so on my shoulders than just my hands. In fact I think I will buy a strap-less Speedy 25 (not 35) for the future for my more minimalist days as I still love the look of the strap-less Speedy as well. Replica-wise I noticed Counter Luxury was down so I ended up just buying the 35 from DD, who seems to have really improved with their LV collection if this bag is a good representation of their whole selection! I spoke to one of their sales reps through their chat window, and apparently they have stopped carrying AAA bags since they are poor quality – a good move on their part in my opinion. After receiving this bag I realized that I have really come a long way from my days as a replica newbie, where I would buy horrible canvas with a plastic quality and think it was amazing, but these 1:1 bags have really given me a new appreciation for the quality that replicas can truly give a person! Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think:

Celine Nano from Perfect Celine Review!

Packaging

Perfect Celine seemed to consistently come up as one of the most recommended replica sites to buy a Celine bag from so I took the dive and went for a nano in black of course (my safe color). I usually like to buy replica bags in black just because I know a) they can’t screw it up, and b) I tend to be a neutral clothing wearer. Their website got shut down for some reason or another, I didn’t really inquire, but I heard they were accepting orders through email so I sent them an email and got an auto response and a link to their catalog (I won’t post it here because I don’t want it to get shut down too but you can email them at perfectcelinebags@gmail.com).

I spoke to a representative named Luna paid through Western Union which I was initially thought was questionable, but really wanted a Celine so I thought it would be worth the risk if it worked out (replica shopping is kind of like gambling or playing poker in that way – you spend some and you get an amazing return or alternatively you can get nil; the more skilled you are the more better of a return you get). Anyways all in all they sent my tracking number in 4 days, and the bag took a week and half to get here. I am very happy with the quality and have added the pictures below for everyone to take a look. Definitely a good buy, and I will be going back to a Trapeze too as I love the structure of that bag as well.

The Classic Louis Vuitton Handbag Reference Guide!

 

lv-neverfull-replica

Oh Louis! How many hearts have your handbags captured? Millions I am sure, and that is exactly why LV is one of the brands a person automatically associates with luxury. But who can help it? That classic monogram logo, and the timeless style of the brand make it irresistible, and deservingly so! This reference guide will go through the most popular LV styles and give some tips on what to watch for when in the market for a used or replica Louis Vuitton. The guide may be updated on an ongoing basis as new information is gained! 🙂

Neverfull: The Neverfull comes in 3 sizes (PM, MM, and GM) and is the quintessential Louis handbag. It comes in both the classic designs (Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene, and Damier Azur), recent collections (e.g. the Epi leather version, or the recent Summer 2013 collection) as well as more limited designs. If you are in the market for your first Louis Vuitton handbag you can never go wrong with a Neverfull as its versatility and function is truly top notch. The varying sizes means it can accommodate both small and large needs, while maintaining that effortless cool! Make sure to pay attention to the dimensions when shopping for an LV as that is a dead giveaway indicating whether the handbag is “fake”. Additionally the straps on a Neverfull (or any Louis in general) are very important as their quality can also be a giveaway. Make sure the straps are not overly flimsy or of low quality trimmings! The quality of the canvas is also important but it is easier to spot flaws in that and make sure to pay close attention! Additionally the actual canvas print is crucial and make sure it matches the authentic to a tee!

REP-A-PORTER Review – Black Prada Saffiano Replica Knockoff

 

So I purchased from REP-A-PORTER after they relaunched since I always heard good things about their Prada bags. What do I think of the bag now that it is here? It is actually a pretty good replica. The leather feels good, and the inside of the bag is nicely done as well. I remember reading somewhere that you can judge a replica handbag by its interior quality. I agree with this statement since every replica handbag I have purchased which turned out to be a piece of c-r-a-p looked disgusting inside. But every decent replica I have bought has had an interior which matches the exterior’s quality. Take a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think.

The customer service of REP-A-PORTER was better than other replica sites I have dealt with since they at least knew English. I had to pay with Western Union which I have gotten used to now that I have bought over 3 replica handbags. I think you just really have to know where you are shopping. After owning both real handbags and replicas I have to say that finding a good replica is like hitting a small lottery win since you know how much you have saved from the authentic. Here is a link to their website: www.repaporter.com
