The Classic Chanel Handbag Reference Guide!

 

From the timeless Chanel 2.55 flap all the way to the modern day Lego clutch, Coco’s famous fashion house has certainly not let us handbag buyers (and lovers) without choice. In fact it can be almost overwhelming to pick a single Chanel handbag, as I have personally always been left wanting 2 or 3 at the same time (I am sure others have been in the same boat as me). I believe in order to help narrow down your selections it truly helps to have a basic sense about the story behind each specific design’s style and function. In this post I will outline some basic descriptions of each type of Chanel handbag and highlight what to look for when shopping for one online (whether it be replica, new, or used). This post will be updated as new information is gained! 🙂

The Classic Chanel’s:

2.55 Flap Bag: This is one of the most well-known Chanel designs and oozes the simple elegance Coco’s brand is known for! It comes in 5 different sizes (Mini, Small, Medium, Jumbo, and Maxi) leaving you as a buyer in a position to truly think about how big you want it to be. They include:

The 2.55 truly is a timeless classic and perhaps one of the original hallmarks of Chanel.
TYPE:
Chanel Classic Flap Mini Bag –
 DIMENSIONS:
6.5” (L) x 5.5” (H) x 2.5” (W)
 PRICE:
– Retail: $2,400.00 (USD)
Chanel Classic Flap Small Bag- 9.55” (L) x 5.5” (H) x 2” (W)     – Retail: $4,200.00 (USD)
Chanel Classic Flap Medium Bag 10” (L) x 6” (H) x 2.5” (W)     – Retail: $4,400.00 (USD)
Chanel Classic Flap Jumbo Bag 12” (L) x 8” (H) x 3” (W)     – Retail: $4,900.00 (USD)
Chanel Classic Flap Maxi Bag 13” (L) x 9” (H) x 4” (W)     – Retail: $5,300.00 (USD)

One thing to keep in mind when searching for a Chanel replica is to make sure the measurements of the handbag you are eying are indeed the same as the authentic! There is nothing that screams “fake” more than an inappropriately sized Chanel yet so many replica handbag shoppers seem to fail to notice this point. So please ladies and gents make sure to pay attention to dimensions, regardless of the brand you are shopping for! Also be realistic about the use you will get out of the size you are looking to purchase. Not every girl needs a Maxi, while at the same time not every girl can fit all they need into a Mini.

Boy Flap Bag: Boy, oh boy is there much to say about this handbag! I love the tomboy-ish feel it gives to any girl carrying it while still maintaining the chicness of Chanel. One important thing to remember is that this bag features a unique front clasp closure either in a giant CC or push lock button and thick chain link strap.

I don’t know about you, but I love this color of the Boy handbag. Truly a must have!

Chanel Quilted Boy Satchel Tote Bag Price: $5,100.00 (USD) Dimensions: 13.4” x 8.3” x 6.3”

The most important thing to remember when replica shopping for a Chanel Boy flap handbag is to not choose a color which is not part of the official collection. As well all know the replica manufacturers like to put their own spin on things sometimes which includes producing handbags in colors which were never a part of the authentic designer’s collection. Colors which belong to the official collection include: flat red, deep black, intense grey, lead green, and clean ivory in glazed calfskin, yellow, black and white, grey and black. If you go outside of these colors the chance of your handbag being spotted as a fake increases tenfold – if not twenty. So please ladies and gents pay attention to these details especially since Chanel replicas can be some of the most expensive a person can invest in!

Chanel Grand Shopping Tote: This tote is a signature look of Chanels and no girl (or guy) can go wrong carrying this handbag as it compliments and is truly a stand out piece that every true Chanel lover needs to own. The handles of this handbag have double chains and there is the classic CC logo sewn onto the handbag. Black is the most popular and prominent color this handbag is featured in however it has been produced in other colors as well.

I am in love with this handbag as I write about it and am planning on purchasing one a.s.a.p!

The are several types of leather grains and styles which are used to create this style as well including caviar, lambskin, patent, and even some metallics! The current retail price of a Chanel Grand Shopping Tote is around $2,900 at a Chanel boutique however a replica will cost you much less depending on the quality/accuracy of the one you are planning to purchase.

Fabulousaaa.com Review (User Submission): LV Damier Graphite and Epi Men’s Bags

 
Hey guys,
Here is a review a kind reader named Cris has sent in with lots of details pics for the site http://www.fabulousaaa.com. The website is run by Joy who is a very well known replica seller. I personally have not ordered from them because I can see certain quality flaws in some of the pieces, but just wanted to share this review for anyone else out there interested in shopping with them. Thanks for the review Cris and if anyone else has a review for any site feel free to email it in with pics to thepursequeen@hotmail.com

Hi Angie,
I’ve placed an order on fabulousaaa.com
It was a LV Damier Graphite Tadao tote bag N51192 ($114) and
the LV Epi Leather men bag N59092 ($105).
Shipping was $55 dollars which I recommend ordering more than one item as it’s much better deal.
The package came exactly a week via usps right when I’ve placed and paid for my order.
I will forward you like 14 pictures.
My overall experience has been pretty good and the products are very very close to the real thing.
There’s no way your can tell it’s a fake by looking at the exterior and I believe the tote was almost the exact mirror replica and
 the Epi bag itself is exact mirror replica while their leather tag was close…if only they would print the leathers a little lower
 and the strap is thinner than the real one…. and they do not come with authenticity card or booklet.
The only I don’t know is how they stand over time…..
Let me know if you need more pics.
thanks,
Cris

EXPOSED: http://www.spotbagz.cn or http://www.spotbags.org or http://www.spotbags.co is a SCAM or FAKE blog!!

 

Hey guys,

So I have been emailed a lot about this site spotbagz.co and was asked to check it out by some blog readers and this is my conclusion: it is a scam. This “Eva Knox” individual is a woman who is clearly quite deceptive and knows that we as buyers are disadvantaged in the replica market since there are so many shoddy sites out there … So this is basically her game: She has several sites she owns including PurseValley which I had previously commented negatively on. She “reviews” these sites which really means she just promotes her own site with fake reviews. People then come across her blog and think they’ve discovered a helpful person who really wants to help others …. But it is all a lie.

You have been warned my dear blog readers. Do not fall for her scam. I have read many upset blog reader emails about how they have spent hundreds and either received horrible products or simply have had their credit card information abused.

This brings me to the second part of this posting. I would like to give my lovely blog readers some tips on credit card safety.

Angie’s Top Credit Card Tips for Online (Specifically Replica) Purchases:

1.  If a site doesn’t offer some type of Paypal verification or some other trust-able 3rd party merchant who will process the payment do not purchase from them.

2. Never – I repeat NEVER – give your credit card information through email or make email purchases. This is like giving your purse willingly to a thief. It is the biggest mistake you will make and you will definitely pay for it.

3. Do not ever send a photocopy of your credit card or a letter with your signature to a company stating that they have permission to charge you for a certain product. You do not know what they can (and will do) with your financial information.

4. Use a disposable credit card if you want to be super safe. They are a one time deal and online fraudsters can’t really get too far with them.

5. Always, always, always search for a review about a site if possible before you make any kind of purchase or give them any of your information. If others have been duped it is more likely than not that there will be bad reviews out there since the internet is open to all. However there are many fake reviews (like Ms. Eva Knox’s blog) so you just have to be able to read between the lines in many cases.

Hope this helps out you ladies and gents because I have heard way too many horror stories through my email of poor shoppers getting ripped off!

Balecianga Replica Handbag Review! … www.designerdiscreet.net

1. Website Usability: The website design is actually slightly cute compared to the typical replica handbag out there on the web. It seems as if the operators of this site have put some effort into marketing, The usability is actually pretty decent too, however I wish they would label their products with the actual designer handbag names as it would make it a lot easier when you know exactly what you are looking for. I actually emailed them this suggestion and they seem to be open to change and improvement so I guess the usability should become better since they say they are fairly new in the market.

2. Selection/Variety of Bags: The variety of handbags isn’t as much as I’d like it to be, but once again I guess they are new and still expanding. Right now they seem to have 4 brands: Chanel, LV, Hermes, and Balenciaga… but I will say this since I have purchased my bag a while ago, Chanel wasn’t up then so clearly they are updating and adding to their site. Another difference about this site compared to the usual is that they say they are very “picky” with choosing what handbags and that really helps us shoppers have to worry less about receiving a crappy product after placing an order. They also have a request a handbag service which I haven’t tried but I guess could come really handy in finding a specific bag you have been searching for forever! Apparently they will have shoes as well soon since their wording makes reference to it… I hope Louboutins are added cause I definitely have been on the search for a good pair of those 😉

3. Order Process/Customer Service: They are paypal verified however you can’t login to your paypal but instead it seems to be integrated into their shopping cart and you put in your info and paypal charges you. My statement was charged by Paypal under the name T.A.G which is I guess their merchant name? I definitely feel safe with the site cause paypal is probably the most trust-able payment processor out there on the web right now.

4. Quality: I ordered a Balenciaga Dark Brown City Classique and I have to say I am truly truly impressed with this purchase. I actually have a friend with a real Balenciaga and I gotta say the two are really fully alike! Down to the s

mallest details of the zippers and how the handles are sewn, this site seems to have it down in terms of quality! Everything seems to be spot on. The leather has a very rich feel to it, and the bag came with a dust bag and authenticity cards to help it seem even more real. I have added a lot of pictures of the bag and comparisons to the authentic thing to this post so you blog readers can really get a good look at it. I will have to say I am truly impressed and have even placed an order for 2 more bags from them (an LV and a Chanel) since there is a multiple buy discount (on their front page) and am looking forward to receiving them… I truly hope their quality is as impressive as the Balenciaga’s has been!

5. Image Comparison: The bag does match the picture posted on the site, which is a very comforting fact. The lighting does make it seem a little bit darker than it is in reality though.
