Louis Vuitton Montaigne MM Replica Bag Review

louis vuitton montaigne replica #replicabag #replicabags

Hello lovely blog readers,

In this blog post I will be reviewing the Louis Vuitton Montaigne MM replica bag that I purchased, highlighting the bag’s pros, cons, and overall quality in comparison to the authentic. I fell in love with the Montaigne MM bag when it first came out a few years ago and it has been on my wishlist since 2015. However it kept getting pushed back due to other designs that would pop up and I would desire to obtain more quickly. One thing I can say about the Montaigne MM is that I believe that it’s shape and structure make it one of those Louis Vuitton bags (much like the Speedy and Neverfull), that will stand the test of time. The bag is very functional and I love the MM size. It can comfortably fit in your wallet, sunglasses, phone, and cosmetics. Another feature of the bag I love is the detachable shoulder strap which is one of my favorite features that I always seek out in almost every bag I buy as functionality is very important to me.

Dear blog readers,

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:

Balenciaga Classic City (Metallic Edge) Replica Bag Review

Hey everyone! So last year as part of my bi-annual replica bag haul I scored a Balenciaga Classic City in taupe gris with the metallic edge detailing. The real bag retails for $2,490 on Barney’s and is completely sold out on Balenciaga’s official website. The bag is super luxe yet very functional at the same time. The shoulder strap the bag comes with makes it a no fuss bag in the sense that you can simply throw it on your shoulder and go out. I’ve always personally had a soft spot for bags with shoulder straps since they make carrying the bag so easy, and help add a nonchalant vibe to your overall look as these celebs showcase while carrying the bag:

Another aspect of the bag I love is all the small details starting with the braided handles. I think that the braided handles add such a defining touch to all of Balenciaga’s models and really think it is one of those signature touches that can help you easily identify the brand. The braided handles add a beautiful sense of femininity to an otherwise very tom-boyish bag in my opinion. Another defining feature of Balenciaga’s classic bags are the tassels. There are tassels on every zipper of the bag (on the top and the front) and this is another signature design feature which screams Balenciaga to me.

Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme Bag Review (Replica)!

Hello everyone. I hope your 2018 is rolling well so far, and I hope it is a year of happiness, peace, and prosperity for all! So before I begin posting about my new hauls for the year, I am going to finally finish posting some reviews that were lingering, and I just quite frankly never had the time to put up. I’m super sorry to anyone I kept waiting from these reviews, and hope they’ll be helpful to anyone thinking of shopping for a replica out there. So this particular review is about the Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme bag.

So when I shop for bags I mentally categorize them as either fun or serious. Now the Gucci Dionysus GG Supreme bag is a fun bag. It is a stand out piece, and can really take an outfit from mediocre to damn chic. I absolutely love the look of the bag, and the vibe it exudes. I also love how versatile the bag is. It can literally be worn for a day trip while you’re out shopping, or at night if you’re going out for dinner or some fun. The bag is an art work in terms of the intricacy of the design. Everything from the beautiful textured tiger head with the unique closure detail, all the way to the hand painted sides of the bag really make the bag pop when you look at it. I buy a lot of bags, as you may be able to tell by my name, however the Gucci Dionysus bag is one of the few bags that have not only impressed me in terms of being a functional bag, but has also stood out as a true art piece to me. So needless to say anything else, I LOVE the bag. I’ve also seen the bag pop up on Instagram fashionistas a lot, and I’m guessing that everyone else is loving the bag for similar reasons to me. Some of my favorite looks I’ve seen sported with the bag so far include:

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 Gucci’s 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 you’ll know whether you were right or wrong.

So in case you haven’t seen the Dionysus before, this is the bag pictured on the Gucci site, where it retails for $2,290 USD:

Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Keepall 45 Replica Review

Hello all! This review of my new Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite Keepall 45 is the third review in a series reflecting my Summer ’17 replica haul. You can see my original post outlining all of my purchases by clicking here.  Now this review is different in that I did not buy this bag to use myself but instead bought it for my brother.

After seeing my replica collection and how accurate pieces can be if a person knows how to properly shop for replicas, he requested the Keepall as a litmus test for how good men’s replicas can be. In the past I have purchased a men’s Louis Vuitton wallet in Damier Graphite for my hubby (about a year and a half ago) and the quality has held up pretty well thus far. My brother who I purchased the Keepall for, actually has an authentic bi-fold LV wallet in the monogram print and the two are indistinguishable in terms of quality, even though the models are different.

My brother picked the 45 cm size which is the smallest size available in the collection (the other sizes are 50 cm, 55 cm, and 60 cm). Although it is the smallest size in the collection the bag is still quite big and to be quite honest as soon as it arrived, I kind of fell in love, and am thinking of ordering a Monogram Keepall 45 for myself since it is perfect for weekend getaways, or any short overnight trips where luggage just isn’t necessary. I’ve always known that the Keepall is one of Louis Vuitton’s most iconic and classic pieces, but now I really understand how versatile the bag can be, and recommend it to everyone.

The LV Keepall replica came in packaged flat in the box which was actually really good in that it helped the bag keep its shape without damaging it during transit. One of my biggest worries when waiting for a package is always whether it will be damaged in transit – we all know how careless couriers usually are so if the sender does not take steps to mitigate damage in transit, whatever parcel you are receiving may turn out to be a lost cause. The bag is a counter quality replica like all the other replicas I buy (if you are new to the world of replicas and want to see the grading scale I have shopped with click here). Below you will find the details of my review which will focus on leather quality, hardware quality, stitching & interior of the bag.

LEATHER QUALITY:

One big misconception with Louis Vuitton, especially for first time buyers is that the authentic version of the Canvas series bags (Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene, Damier Azur, Damier Grapite, Damier Cobalt) are 100% genuine leather. This is FALSE. The Canvas series bags are mainly made with what the title of the bag implies – canvas. Specifically they are made with coated canvas which is adjusted based on the specific print (e.g. Monogram vs. Damier Azur). What is supposed to be genuine leather on a Louis Vuitton bag is the trimming and detailing.

This is what CANVAS is. Louis Vuitton’s canvas bags are coated meaning the designs and colors are printed on this material to make them look like they do!

This means everything from the bag’s tags, handles, all the way to the strap should be genuine leather. The replica Keepall I ordered comes with genuine leather detailing and trimming since it is a counter quality replica. Many replica versions of this bag do not have genuine replica detailing and are usually made with plastic handles, straps etc. If you choose to go for a replica version of this bag make sure you confirm the handles, tags, and trimmings are made with real leather. If you already have a bag you can feel the difference between smooth cowhide and plastic, so you will know if you just feel it out.

HARDWARE QUALITY:

The original version of this bag is made with silver brass pieces, and the replica version of the bag I received was made with the same materials. In terms of heaviness I find Louis Vuitton’s hardware to be neither extremely heavy, nor super flimsy, but it is more on the lighter side compared to other brands like Gucci or Chanel.

INTERIOR OF THE BAG:

The authentic version of the Keepall has a cotton lined interior, and the replica version I purchased is also lined with cotton in the interior.  Since the interior is not leather in this case, I don’t have much to say, except that if you are purchasing a replica version of this bag make sure the interior lining color is black to match the original.

STITCHING:

This is an important aspect to pay attention to when it comes to any replica as it is what usually helps us decipher the mediocre from the great. I always make sure the stitching is clean and consistent throughout the bag, and the Keepall gets a strong pass in this case.

EXTRAS:

The bag came with a lock and key set, which is super heavy compared to the rest of of the hardware, and is on par with the original. The lock is embossed with the LV logo and comes with a little key as well.

Classic Lady Dior Bag Replica Review

Hello everyone!

Time for round 2 of my summer hall ’17 reviews! This time I will be reviewing the Lady Dior bag I purchased. The Lady Dior bag is part of Dior’s timeless classics series, and I’m sure we can all agree that the history, structure, and look of the bag all certainly support this. Fun fact – do you know why the Lady Dior bag is called the Lady Dior bag? Well after doing some snooping I found out it was named after none other than Lady Di herself – a.k.a the late Princess of Wales, Diana. So if you are already lucky enough to own one of these bags then now you know your bag is steeped in a bit of royal history. And for those who have been coveting the bag – in other words dying to get one – it only gives you an extra reason to move it up on your wishlist!

I myself can certainly see why Princess Diana loved the bag. It has a regal essence to it and I believe it can make the least sophisticated of gals – myself included – look a little more elegant by sporting this look. As you can tell from the montage above, Princess Diana was obsessed with the bag and had the black color in every size and leather! When I decided to get the bag I naturally floated towards picking black myself – so hey I guess Lady Di and I have something in common when it comes to gravitating towards black accessories! Anyways jokes aside I decided to go for the Lady Dior in the original size in black lambskin (not the mini or the large) with gold hardware. I love the look of silver hardware on a Lady Dior too, but for some reason  felt the black really popped out against the black and I fell in love with the look. The original a.k.a authentic version of the bag retails for around $4,100 USD while I got mine for less than a 1/10 of that at about $400 USD.

I paid for a counter quality replica which means that the bag is as close to the real deal as possible – if you have been reading the blog in the past you know I don’t like to mess around with poor fakes – they are a waste of money in my opinion & I am buying the bag to last as long as the original therefore I only shop for the best. The features of this specific bag that make it counter quality include the leather quality, the hardware quality, the stitching, the interior of the bag, and the overall feel of the bag. I will go into detail about all those details below:

LEATHER QUALITY :

The leather of the bag is genuine lambskin leather and I must tell you it is uber supple. Genuine lambskin leather should have a super buttery feel and the leather on this bag gets a big pass when it comes to this criteria. The leather is very comparable to the Chanel classic flap series which should also be super butter-y. If you buy a poor fake with fake leather that would ruin the whole look of this bag as the quality of the leather will be visible from a mile away.

HARDWARE QUALITY :

Good quality hardware should be as heavy as the original. Some brands have lighter hardware while others have a heavier hardware. Dior is a brand that is in the middle when it comes to hardware heaviness. The charms are a bit heavier than the zipper and handles, but overall the there is a good weight to the hardware on this bag. The bag also has little pegs at the bottom to prevent it from getting dirty and also prevents the leather from getting scratched. I personally hate it when brands make bags with delicate leather like lambskin and do not include feet at the bottom (especially if you end up going for the real bag and spending 4 grand), but fortunately the Lady Dior is not one of those bags!

STITCHING –

The stitching quality of a bag can either make or break a replica, and the case of this Lady Dior replica it makes the bag. Each square has a 9 count stitch which is on par with the authentic. Once again making a comparison to Chanel, the stitching is something that easily gives away a fake when it comes to that brand too as you notice an overly puffy classic flap. If your replica does not have a good stitch count on par with the original you don’t need to look at any other characteristics as it is bad fake period.

INTERIOR –

My last and favorite place of a replica bag I peek at in order to judge in order to assess the quality is the interior of the bag. A counter quality bag and a mediocre bag may look similar in many regards however the interior is usually what gives the bag away as fake. Most replica manufacturers use fake leather on the interior of a bag because they are cheap and trying to maximize their dollar made. I always look for a counter quality model of a bag that has real leather or original quality fabric on the interior, and in this case the Dior’s interior is made with real leather trimmings on the interior leather zipper while the actual interior is outlined with a red logo imprinted fabric.

EXTRAS-

The bag came with a strap that can be used to wear the bag on your shoulder as opposed to simply holding it.

Overall this Lady Dior replica bag is a good example of what a good replica bag should look like and what you should look for when shopping for one if you decide to go for a replica instead of a used or authentic!
