The Classic Louis Vuitton Handbag Reference Guide!

Oh Louis! How many hearts have your handbags capturedMillions I am sure, and that is exactly why LV is one of the brands a person automatically associates with luxury. But who can help itThat 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!

Burberry Replica Handbag/Tote Review (hint: its beautiful!)

So I very recently purchased a Burberry replica handbag or tote which I am in love with. Burberry is one brand which I personally at least cannot justify buying a real purse from. Especially after I watched this documentary on Youtube in which it showed Burberry deciding to move their production from the UK (where they originated fromthey are a British brand for those of you who dont know) to South Asia. As a business decision this makes a lot of sense as the owners of the company can now make their bags for dirt cheap and enjoy maximum markups. However for the heritage of the brand and in terms of the luxury radar it was a big mistake. Why would anyone in their right mind pay full price for a Burberry purse when you can buy a knockoff made in the same country, and most likely in the same factory for a much lower price ??At least companies like Louis Vuitton, Chanel etc. assemble their handbags in Europe to give it that feeling of lux (even though many of their parts come from China as well!). I feel like when I look at the label of a purse and it says made in China when I pay over a thousand dollars for it, I have been ripped off in a sense. I personally support true artisanal craft especially when it comes to leather and purses, for which I am weak at the knees, but Burberry has definitely dropped the ball when it comes to the whole luxury factor surrounding their brand. I still cant get over the part in the video where all the British Burberry craftsmen were worried about remaining unemployed for the rest of their lives after the factory was due to close.

Anyways, due to those reasons and more I will personally NEVER be able to justify purchasing an authentic Burberry handbag, or anything else for that matter! I personally purchased a gorgeous tote with the renowned Haymarket print (for which Burberry actually lost a trademark suit for meaning anyone can use that checkered print they are renowned foranother negative for their luxury image) and am very impressed by the replica bag I have purchased! The bag is more than gorgeous and if you peruse the pictures below you will definitely see why. The canvas weight of the bag is nice and heavy like the authentic pieces (I actually do have 1 authentic vintage Burberry crossbody that was my moms and she handed it down to me, so I compared the weight of the two). The finishing are also real leather indicating that the bag is truly a counter quality or superfake model as opposed to the lower quality of fakes which use plastic to finish off the trimmings to reduce costs. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Spot the Fake Louis Vuitton Veau Cachemire Soft Lockit MM! An Authentic vs. Replica Buying Guide

With the likes of Chiara Ferragni carrying the Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit, its no surprise that this particular Louis Vuitton is very popular currently as a replica bag as well! I am personally a huge fan of Chiara Ferragni and love her blog The Blonde Salad where her awesome style is showcased. Unlike Ms. Ferragni who has first and free dibs on most luxury handbags (her prominence in the fashion blogger world cannot be denied!) most ladies (and gentlemen) like myself do not have such access, so sometimes a replica bag will do for me (and many others). The replica LV Soft Lockit I purchased was of very high quality and can be described as a superfake designer bag or a counter quality replica handbag. If you examine the photographs you will see that this is one bag that is virtually identical to the original of the same make by the authentic Louis Vuitton factories. The original price of the bag is over $4,000 USD on the official Louis Vuitton boutiques ecommerce website but I purchased the handbag for only $389 USD which is a steal if you think about it! Sometimes when I see the extremely high prices on some models like the Soft Lockit I have a feeling Louis Vuitton is really overcharging, but that may just be a matter of opinion. Anyways take a look at the pictures below and let me know in the comments whether youd go authentic or replica for this Louis Vuitton handbag!

This is the original listing of the purse I have used for comparison in this review/article.

The handbag on the right is my replica Louis Vuitton handbag while the handbag on the left is an authentic Soft Lockit up for resale on the consignment website Fashionphile. Could you spot the fake right away or did you pause for a moment

The logo of the replica handbag is pictured on the left while the logo stamp of the authentic is pictured on the right. The logos of both purses are well done but I have to say that if I were to judge based off this photo solely the stamp on the replica (left picture) actually looks sharper and more well done than that of the authentic purse pictured on the right.

The interior tag of both handbags. Which one do you think is the tag on the fake bagThe one on the leftNo that is actually the authentic Louis Vuitton handbags tag. The tag pictured on the right is that of the replica bag, and as you can see it has one more detail on the stamp which is the location the handbag was produce in which is France in this case.

The interiors of the two handbags are both suede although the picture on the left which shows the authentic handbags interior shows a more used suede hence why it is almost slightly pilling. My replica handbag is fairly new in comparison so the suede does not show any wear at all. The interior is smooth to the touch and actually my preferred interior type for a handbagI usually hate the cotton lining most Louis Vuitton models have and think the suede is more of a lux feel generally.

The bottom of the handbags are virtually identical and there is no honestly no visible difference between the authentic or replica handbag in this case. The four silver pegs at the bottom of the bag are awesome as they really do help prevent the handbag from getting dirty at all. If you own a designer handbag it is very likely that a pet peeve of yours will be the bottom getting dirty!

Lastly the back of both handbags are pictured! The back of each bag is virtually identical as well as there is nothing to differentiate between the two.

One thing I would like to note is that when you are shopping for the Soft Lockit as a replica, if you choose to do so, make sure you buy one that is a good quality replica. Most websites sell AAA handbags which are either half leather half plastic or fully plastic and it does not do any justice to the original Louis Vuitton model. The handbag I purchased is one of the most accurate Louis Vuitton replicas I have purchased yet and since it is a recent model I guess we can assume that the manufacturers are getting more and more sophisticated everyday!

Sound off in the comments below and let me know what you think of the comparison and the style of the Soft Lockit as I personally think it comes off as a love it or hate it kind of bag!

Replica Louis Vuitton Bags: Is it Hard to Buy them Online?

Louis Vuitton is arguably the most copied bag in the world meaning there are many replica Louis Vuitton bags out there! This makes it even more challenging however when you are thinking of buying a knockoff as it means you have your work cut out for you in terms of finding a good replica Louis Vuitton. In this article I will compare and review?a?replica Louis Vuitton?Damier Azur Totally to an authentic Louis Vuitton Damier Azur going over key tips to guide when you are shopping online! Take a look at the photo above! Can you spot the fake right off the bat or did it take you a few moments to compare the twoIt can be really tough for buyers to decipher between real and fake nowadays due to the improving standards of replica bag manufacturers. If the first thing you looked at were the handles of the bag and noticed a color difference, do not let yourself be fully thrown off! The handles on the bag pictured on the left side have been patinad which means they have oxidized due to exposure.

Louis Vuitton handbags are made with cowhide trimmings which naturally patina over time, giving the handles a darker look. When you buy a brand new Louis Vuitton (real or fake) it should look like the bag on the right where the handles are very light and untampered with. If you buy a used bag you can expect the handbag to have a patinad handle(s), and if it doesnt that is a warning sign that is a) fake, and b) a really bad fake. Anyways back to the initial question: could you tell which bag was the knockoffIf you guessed the bag on the left with the darker handles you are wrong, and if you guessed the bag on the right with the lighter handles you are right! Lets take a look into the differences between the two bags. One note I would like to make is that the handbag pictured on the right is one of the best Louis Vuitton replicas available out there, and so if you are looking for one this would be as close to the real deal as you can get without buying an authentic handbag.

The bottom of both handbags are equivalent and there is no difference at all that would cause one to second guess the authenticity of the bag. The only difference is that the bag on the left which is used has lost some of its shape and become a bit more loose unlike the handbag on the right which has yet to be used. This loose-ness is not a factor in authenticity in this case however!

A side view of both handbags once again showing no noticeable difference between the two handbags. The handles of the used authentic bag are a bit more stretched out and worn out compared to the replica handbag on the right.

Once again the biggest difference I would say Louis Vuitton replica handbags have from their authentic counterparts is the stitching quality. If you take a look on the bag on the left it is just a bit more well done than that of the one on the right which is not sewn in as deep. Other than that the tags are generally comparable.

The interior of both of the handbags are shown here. The light was a bit dark when I was trying to photograph the replica LV so sorry about that folks. You still get a general idea though and the interiors are fairly comparable. The interiors of replica handbags are one thing which I dont usually sweat about as long as it is a quality interior and good enough to hold my stuff. However if something is off here or there it does not really matter in comparison to the total design so I would suggest you dont sweat about it either!

Let me know what you think of the Totally replica bag in the comments below. Was a good fake or was it easy for you to spot

Celine Nano Luggage Bag from counterluxury.cn Review/ Comparison (in pics)!

Hello everyone! Sorry for being so M.I.AIve had a really busy summer so far and had very little time to update the blog. Anyhow I am back now and boy oh boy do I have a great summer haul to share. My latest purchases include a Hermes 25cm Birkin, some Chanel, Chloe, Prada, and Celine (which is being featured in this article!). I will be updating the blog with all my reviews in the upcoming days and am super excited to share how awesome my latest replica purchases are.

So lets begin with my latest Celine nanoI bought a tricolor nano from Counter Lux (their latest link is at www.counterluxury.cn). I was trying to be more fun so instead of getting a solid bag which is my usual preference I got the combination of olive/cream/black which is still quite neutral however the mixup of colors is enough for the bag to be considered fun in my books. Without further hesitation here is a pic of the bag:

I really LOVE the color combination on this bag. I have noticed a fair amount of improvements in the quality of the Celine Nano since the last time I purchase my black nano from Perfect Celine, including better stitching, form, sturdiness, and weight in terms of the hardware. The hardware on my old Celine nano (black) is much lighter in comparison to the new hardware and the new hardware just has a better look and feel overall. The bag is also a million times better than my first Celine replica which I had purchased a long time ago which looks utterly terrible when placed side by side with the new bag. I have taken pictures of all the bags side by side for you to feast your eyes on. So go ahead and take a look below:

The new hardware is phenomenal!

When you hold up the hardware it is nice and heavy!

This is my really old Celine (bought a couple of years ago) vs. my latest Celine. You can see a very shiny leather that looks kind plastic-y on the old bag, but the new leather is more matte and luxe.

A closeup on the back of the bag!

A close up of the details on the front of the bag!

This is how the strap came packaged.

A plastic air pack was included inside to help keep the form during shipping.

A pic of the bottom of the bag!

Look how cheap my first Celine replica looksI am glad I have come far from my first days of buying bad bags!

All 3 bags pictured side by side. It goes from worst quality (left side) to best (right side).

Close up of the logo/handles.

This was my second replica Celine bag I purchased from Perfect Celine which was good but not as good as my latest bag from Counterlux!

Another side by side shot of the worst bag (left) vs. the best one (right). Pay attention to the logo printingit looks unusually large and bold on the bag on the left.

My little Celine collection!

Can You Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Bag? Authentic vs. Replica Louis Vuitton Neverfull Comparison

One bag is a GM (the one on the left with the white background) while the other is an MM so please keep that difference in mind while reading this guide!

Louis Vuitton is and always will be one of the most wanted designer brands out there! The Neverfull bag specifically is one of their most famous bagscelebs and fashionistas from all walks of life have shown their love for the bag. I personally love the Neverfull because it is one of the most functional bags in my wardrobeit is big and fits EVERYTHING! Especially if you go for the bag in its largest sizethe GM! This handbag review will compare an authentic Louis Vuitton Neverfull Mimosa bag to a replica version of the same bag. So can you tell off the bat which is fakeWhether your answer is yes or no scroll down below to see if youre right!

1) Look at the canvas quality of the bag

This is a hard difference to spot between these 2 bags since the canvas quality is on point for the replica, but a bad knockoff will have a plastic-y feel to the canvas material. The canvas refers to the monogrammed brown material used for the body of the bag.

2) Look at the stitching of the bag at the sides underneath the bag

Once again the replica bag featured in this post is of a very high quality so it is hard to notice a major flaw, but make sure that the side of the bags stitching aligns. The shapes on the Monogram Canvas should also align on the sides of the bag. If you spot poor or spotty stitching, or stitching that is very loose quickly then you most likely have a bad fake on your hands. Looking underneath the bag is very important as many replica sellers get lazy when it comes to the bottom of a bag and cut corners on a spot they think most people dont pay attention to so make sure you peek underneath!

3) Look inside the bag to see the quality of the lining

As mentioned before replica sellers often cut corners on areas they perceive to be less important on a bag such as the interior so make sure to look inside your potential purchase before spending any money! The interior of a Louis Vuitton neverfull is a cotton lining that is sturdy. Make sure to pay attention to the lining print and the pocket where the Louis Vuitton logo is printed. If anything looks off or the logo looks funny you may have a fake on your hands. The interior of the authentic bag in this case has a bit of a cleaner look around the seams of the bottom however other than that the two interiors look virtually identical.

4) Look inside the bag to see the stamping

One final think you can take a look at in order to determine whether your bag is fake or real is to take a look at the stamping on the interior label of the bag (which is on the pocket on the inside). Not only should you inspect the stitching around the label but you should also look at the way the words are stamped. If you see the Ts connect in VUITTON or if you see poor stamping quality this may indicate you have a fake. The replica bag pictured above is of a high quality (or it can be considered a superfake) so once again it is hard to spot these issues on that specific bag.


So how did you doDid you easily figure out which bag was the fakeWell if you havent by now it was the one of the right hand side of the screen (the bag with the darker pictures/non-white background). This bag is actually a very good replica (a superfake or counter quality replica) so the tips given in this article dont necessarily apply, but most replica bags out there are not superfakes so you will be able to easily spot these flaws. I hope this guide is helpful for either a replica buyer looking to buy a copy of the Louis Vuitton neverfull handbag (so they know how to purchase a top quality bag) as well as anyone looking to buy an authentic and wanting to make sure they dont get duped into paying the authentic price tag for a knockoff Louis Vuitton!? Feel free to comment below and let me know whether youd go authentic or fake for this Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag!

Balenciaga Called Out By Ikea For Copying Their Bag Design!

Of course IKEAs message was simply in jest, and the company fired off this official statement regarding Balenciagas homage to their iconic bag: We are deeply flattered that the Balenciaga tote bag resembles the Ikea iconic sustainable blue bag for 99 cents. Nothing beats the versatility of a great big blue bag!

What do you think of Balenciagas purposeful (or accidental) copying of IKEAs FRATKA bagShould IKEA have been more stern with Balenciaga and pursued legal action Just kidding about that one, but it was hard not to ask ;-PAs I have mentioned before I personally think copy or no-copy the bag looks utterly hideous and I definitely cannot imagine myself spending over two grand to carry this EVER. The original IKEA FRATKA however sounds like a delightful and super useful tote (according to IKEAs ad it can even carry water) which is worth the $0.99. Of course in cases like these we are reminded that high fashion can be ridiculous in terms of cost, and this is one of those time where it glaringly shows.? Sound off with your opinion in the comments below to let me know what you think!

Can You Spot a Fake Gucci Dionysus Bag? A Real vs. Fake Guide

2017 is over (for better or worse), and the Lyst index indicates that Gucci was on fire as the second hottest brand of 2017, right behind Balenciaga. One of Guccis most popular handbags of the year was the Dionysus Supreme GG bag which I actually ended up snagging one (as a replica), in the same color combo Chiara Ferragni has (pictured below from her Instagram account):

In this review I will compare an authentic Gucci Dionysus bag to a replica Gucci bag. As you go through the guide, try to guess which is real, and which is fake. By the end of the article youll know whether you were right or wrong.

So in case you havent seen the Dionysus before, this is the bag pictured on the Gucci site, where it retails for $2,290 USD:

I got my bag as a replica around $420-ish dollars which is about 18% of the authentic retail price.

A Quick Note:

Now one factor Id like to mention before beginning the comparison, is that the bag pictured on the left is a brand new bag so it looks more polished than the bag on the left, which is used, and was taken with different photography equipment. So please do not take that into consideration when deciding which bag is real and which is fake. Also due to camera lighting variations, the colors might seem a bit different, but they are actually the same. The sizing on the two bags are different as well so please keep that in mind when scrolling down. One last important thing to note is that the replica version of the bag is a counter quality replica bag, meaning it is not a knockoff that you can spot easily. The differences, if any, will be subtle.

THE INSIDE OF THE BAGS:

Both bags have a red suede interior. Gucci Dionysus Supreme GG bags have an interior suede color that matches the exterior of the bag. If you see a Gucci Dionysus bag that doesnt have the same interior color suede as the exterior detailing then that is a red flag that the bag you are looking at is fake. The interior of the bag should also have suede lining that meets with GG Supreme canvas interior the pockets. The canvas is usually visible at the bottom and the left and right hand side of the interior of the bag, while the front and back, as well as the middle pocket is suede. Both of the bags pictured above meet these requirements.

TOP VIEW OF THE BAGS THE CHAIN:

Looking from the top down, you cannot spot a difference between the two bags. Both bags have? 9 GGs when you count from top to bottom. The sliding chains also do not display any difference visually. Although the chain hook may seem bigger on the bag on the right it is simply due to the angle the photo was taken at.

SIDE VIEW OF THE BAGS:

Both bags have sides that are lined with suede. The bag looks accordian-like from the side, and the real beauty of the bag really shows from the side.

For comparison sake, this is an authentic Gucci Dionysus. The width of the edges should be this thick in the authentic version of the bag.

SIDE-EDGES OF THE BAGS:

The hand painted edges of the bag are coated in a black lining in both the real and fake version of the bag, creating a beautiful contrast between the suede, and the edges of the bag. Please remember that the size difference between the two bags accounts from why the one on the right looks a bit taller.

BACK OF THE BAGS:

From the back there is not really much to say, as both bags look essentially identical. Some versions of the Dionysus come with a suede pocket on the back of the bag, however this version of the bag does not have such a pocket, and merely has the coated canvas material on display in the back of the bag.

SO CAN YOU GUESS

After scrolling down, Im sure youve realized its not really easy to spot the difference between the two bags since the counter quality fake is pretty good. Before I reveal the authentic bag, I want to spice things up by showing you a 3rd picture of a Gucci Dionysus that is in fact 100% authentic:

This is a 100% authentic Gucci Dionysus.

So which bag from the comparison is realIf you guessed that the bag on the right is real, you guessed wrong. It is the fake. However if you guessed the bag on the left is authentic you are indeed right. Either way, whether you got it wrong or right I dont blame you since the difference is negligible at most. Even the serial number inside the bag matches the authentic Gucci serial number shown on their site. You can view more detailed pictures of the serial number as well as the bag in general by clicking here.

Overall the Gucci Dionysus was one of my favorite bag purchases I made in 2017, and I highly suggest getting one if you are thinking about it as it is a super fun bag that is easy to dress either up or down!
