Pursemall.ru Review – Damier Ebene Berkeley Bag (Blog User Submitted)

pursemall.ru review

Dear blog readers,

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:

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

Hello everyone! Sorry for being so M.I.A – I’ve 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 let’s begin with my latest Celine nano – I 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:

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.

Chanelpurses.cn Review/Warning (Reader Email Submission)

Hello everyone!

I’ve been sharing a few email reviews throughout the past few days and I have a few more to add which have been shared by generous blog readers. This review was emailed to me by a reader name Rochelle. She shopped at chanelpurses.cn  which seems to specialize in selling fake or replica Chanel handbags, and was not too happy with the experience. We all know buying Chanel replicas is about 10x more hard than buying your average replica since Chanel is very stern and keeps shutting down any replica sellers and that means there are many more scammers out there for this brand. Anyways here is the review I received:

Hi pursequeen I just found your blog and wanted to share an experience. I shopped with chanelpurses.cn because even though I have a real flap bag already (in caviar) I wanted a lambskin and can’t really afford the real thing right now due to a tight budget. I stumbled upon chanelpurses.cn and with all of the positivity on their  site I was encouraged to try them out but boy oh boy do I regret my stupidity now. The ordering process was ok, no complaints there. My problem was when the package arrived I was SO disappointed because the purse (classic flap jumbo) had a quilting pattern was very off making it extremely visibly fake! The bag looked nothing like what they advertise on their site and the flaws are very noticeable to the naked eye. The ‘CC’ on the inside of the bag was also wierdly done. Threading was coming loose and there was glue and a huge scratch on the inside. VERY POOR QUALITY for what I paid!!!! The leather of the bag just screamed fake and cheap! When I tried to rectify the situation since the website claims “90 day return policy”but I have not received a response in 1 month since submitting this request. Definitely not a great company. I tried to post a few negative reviews on their site and guess what — they have to be “approved” so I guarantee you they are only posting positive reviews which is why you only see the good on their site. My sister Natalie visited Mandy’s blog for Chanel and she bought one from the site they recommended which is 1 million times better than what I got from chanelpurses … they should really just change their name to Chanel garbage. Really wish I had listened to her advice and just bought from there.

I hope nobody else falls for their tricks as I feel scammed and I thought I was a smart shopper. I will send photos once I am home from work.

It seems as if Rochelle fell for the classic replica trick: seller’s showing a certain set of photos and then sending a poor product that looks totally different. Thanks for sending in the review Rochelle, and if anyone else has had any experiences (good or bad) purchasing from this site please share below with the rest of us!

UPDATE: I got another bad review through email at the end of last month (August 2018). For the sake of your own sanity please do not consider shopping with them! Here is the original email I received:

I sent CHANELPURSESRU a Western Union of $850 dollars (four) purses over five weeks ago, lots of emails about it being sent already, then a tracking number that did not exist. I feel pretty stupid and wish I had checked your site before buying.  Still have not received the purses and am pretty sure I never will.  The only reason I believed they were legitimate was they send me a copy of a DHS tracking invoice from June with a name on it and I tracked the person down and talked to her and she said she got her bag and loved it.  Did this company used to exist and now a scamer has taken over the website??  What else do you know about this website.  Is there any way for me to report them except to you?  Is there any way you could call me?

The Truth About Buying Replica Bags

smart_shopping

I recently received an email from a blog reader that said,

Hello! I bought my first replica from Purse Valley because the pictures they posted on their website looked pretty good, and it looked like they have a decent return policy, but when I received my Prada double bag bag, I could immediately tell that it was fake. The label was crooked, and both the zippers started malfunctioning within a month. They gave me two options: I have to pay $70 in shipping fees to return or exchange the item or accepting a $80 credit and a zipper, I chose the latter.

I am certainly not surprised about the comment about Pursevalley (if anyone has read anything on this blog about them they will know they sell garbage), but after reading this email I feel compelled to share some general, plain, factual, and really important truths about buying replicas and the replica market in general. Firstly when you are shopping for replicas please keep in mind that 99% of the replica market sells junk. By junk I mean super cheaply manufactured bags that put the fake in fake. In other words these are bags that should have never been made in that they are utter junk. Most people are starstruck when it comes to buying replicas so they do not pause to think about quality and go for the first good deal they spot – this is the wrong way to shop for replicas and a surefire way to end up with a junky bag you’ll be embarrassed to take out of your closet. It has personally taken me about 7 years before I became very good at buying replica bags without getting ripped off by paying for something which would end up in the trash bin as soon as it arrived. 7 years is a long time and it shows you how hard it is to navigate the replica market. Now you might think, “Angie is crazy” and “it is not that hard to find a good seller” but my checklist for a good seller goes beyond finding a bay that generally resembles a good fake. I look at the leather weight, stitching details, hardware etc. and these things factor heavily into my replica purchases because I want a bag that will last as long as the real thing. There are many brands out there that have copies of specific models that are the perfect dupe for an original (e.g. Chanel, LV etc.) and I have seen these with my own eyes but finding them online is like navigating a minefield. That is why I was inspired to begin this blog.

Basically I want to encourage any shopper to be extremely vigilant and you can end up with a good bag – with patience and research!

I also really encourage you guys to send any reviews with photos to me at [email protected] as the more information we can share with one another, the better shoppers we can become!

Neverfull MM Neo Mimosa Replica Review

Hey guys!

I had a bit of a Louis Vuitton replica haul this last month … my excuse: I was treating myself for the New Year (2016 bring it on) … that is justifiable right? Well anyways I bought a few bags from Designer Discreet – all of them Louis Vuitton. I have already done a review on a comparison between the Favorite from them vs. a cheaper replica I got elsewhere to identify the quality which you should totally read if you haven’t already because I think it really portrays the difference between a good replica and a “meh” replica in depth – photos are worth a thousand words after all! I will be posting all of my haul in the upcoming days on the blog, and as a precursor I must say I am really impressed by how accurate the replica makers are becoming – the quality between my bags I have receiving lately are crazy good – and I mean crazy good!

Anyways back to my Neverfull MM. I absolutely love the Neo Mimosa series and my favorite interior lining is the yellow – I love the pop of color it gives, but the fuschia interior is also beautiful as well! I honestly plan to buy every color of the Mimosa series because I think that the Neverfull is such a functional bag and hey when they are replicas at a fraction of the cost – why not right? So I was super impressed with the bag and I think you will be too once you see the photos below … take a look and let me know what you think!

The canvas is nice and firm and can stand up on its own with a counter quality replica. Cheaper replicas are usually very flimsy!

Replica Balenciaga vs. Authentic Handbag Buying Guide

This post will be dedicated to mentioning all the things you should look for in a replica Balenciaga handbag before purchasing it in order to ensure it truly is as good as the real thing.

balenciaga replicaSo beautiful… how I love Balenciaga! What do you think of this replica?

The Zippers:
Although this may seem like such a small feature of a handbag it is actually one which you must really pay attention to in order to make sure the replica is reflective of a real balenciaga handbag. Balenciaga uses zippers created by Lampo. Usually fake handbags come with zippers engraved with the capitalized word Lampo – these are clearly fake. Good Balenciaga replicas should have Lampo zippers which have the word Lampo written in a slanted or italics font. In addition to this the “L” from Lampo must extend to the end of the word. A trademark symbol should also appear beside the world Lampo. Usually when my friends show off their replica Balenciaga’s to me I take a look at the zippers first. If the replica artists have paid attention to the zippers it is a sign that they have an eye for detail and will follow through with other finer or subtle details on the rest of the handbag.

The Leather:
Leather oh leather. This is the most visible part of your handbag so clearly it is a big point to consider when purchasing a replica. Authentic Balenciaga uses either goatskin or lambskin leather depending on which collection a specific handbag is from. The leather is very soft and feels quite smooth and carefree in your hands. It is almost silky in a sense. Authentic Balenciaga leather also has a shine which is not overpowering (as many of the fakes are) but at the same time noticeable. Its leather is distressed but not over the top cracked out. The tassels attached to the handbag should be equally as soft. The leather of a Balenciaga plays a big part in creating its elegance which is why it is important to pay attention to this when you are shopping around for a replica.

A lot of replicas unforutnately are overly cracked out and overly shiny. This completely takes away from the beauty of the Balenciaga and trust me girlfriend will be noticeable from a mile away to a true fashionista. I think that replicas don’t offend companies like Balenciaga when done properly but when it is horrible its completely misrepresents their product.

So check with any site you are thinking of buying from to make sure the materials they use are the same as the authentic and if they aren’t DO NOT BUY. Your bag will look tacky and spotted as a fake from a mile away.

real-fake-balenciaga-black-calf-leather-twiggy-bag
The difference is clear and upsetting. The fake does not hold the beauty of the real handbag.

Another more minute yet equally important feature of a Balenciaga.If the end of the straps are folded over this is an immediate sign that the Balenciaga is fake. Fake Balenciaga handbags usually have a more squared off bale.

The Handles:
Finally one last key part of a Balenciaga I would like to discuss with my fellow shopping peers. The handles of an authentic Balenciaga should not have a finished or coated look. The Balenciaga should have handles which are weaved, or braided with leather. Balenciaga themselves call it “sueded leather”, which has a raw appearance to it and looks more like rope or a shoelace. This is a detail fakes often miss unfortunately.

You should really pay attention to all these details if you want to find a replica handbag which truly reflects the edgy yet chic personality of a Balenciaga handbag. 

Also I will be posting guides for Celine replica buying, Louis Vuitton replica buying etc. in the near future! We should aim as shoppers to buy what I call “authentic replica designer handbags” which means they have every part of an authentic bag with the price tag being the only key difference if you know what I mean.

Website Review: Pursevalley and Poshmoda Shopping Experiences

UPDATED: This is an old post which is being updated to reflect new information! The post was first published in 2012. I just wanted to let everyone know that it has been confirmed that Poshmoda and Pursevalley are connected so if you are wary of one you should be wary of the other! Feel free to share your experiences (good and bad) below shopping through either seller/website. 

Purse Valley Eva Knox Scam

Hey guys!

So I was going to make a purchase from starshandbags.co/pursevalley.cn/poshmoda (they are the same site operated under different names in order to trick people) since they are advertised all over the place however after receiving some emails from several blog readers I decided not to even spend a penny as these sites seem to clearly sell poorly made replicas, and have even scammed people it turns out in many cases. Here is what I have heard:

Hi Angie, I posted this on another site but I thought I’d email you too to let you know. I had ordered 4 purses from pursevalley.com. First, delivery was late. Secondly, the quality is inferior. Third, they didn’t have one of the purses I ordered so they cancelled without informing me. Fourth, I tried to call, email, and use live chat to get authorization to return the purses (they only allow 10 days for returns AND the package has to be mailed to China!) and they will not return my calls or emails. To make it all worse, I ordered 4 purses so I would get a 30% discount but because they cancelled part of my order and only sent 3 purses, I didn’t receive a discount.
The quality of the purses is inferior. I have real Chanel purses and these are not even close. You can buy nicer, cheaper faux purses in L.A. for a fraction of the cost.
I started calling on Jan. 3, 2011, and have called 4 times, emailed 4 times, and tried their “live chat” 4 times. I left my number in each case, and I have yet to receive any correspondence from them. I used a debit card to pay so I am very concerned.
I hope you can put this on your blog to help prevent this from happening to others.

Another email I received said:

Do not waste your time. Pursevalley.co is full of dishonest people say money back guarantee but refuse a refund then cannot get a response from customer service I am out of $640 plus $80 shipping charges for returning their products. I am disgusted and am very careful before I purchase online now because of this experience.

Finally a few other shoppers have mentioned:

Wish I had seen all the negative reviews about pursevalley before I made a $600 purchase. First of all, their shipping is horrible. I ordered stuff for an event coming soon and it’s taking forever to ship. I try to contact customer sevice and they are either very rude (one hung up on me!) or dont reply to the couple emails I sent. they wasted no time at all getting my money. (Should have not send it through western union cos I cant get refunds now). I was decieved by Eva Knox from spot bags because of all her false reviews, no one who does not work for a company will have such high praises in all her posts. I ordered an lv evora from another well known replica company and the service was great and I recieved my bag in no time, Quality was flawless. I still havent recieved my order from purse valley and I have no idea how that will turn out as most of the real reviews I see are negative. I wrote a complaint on the facebook page and they removed it immediately, hence the mostly positive reviews. I’m very sure if they were honest, the negative reviews would bypass the positive by far. Will never purchase from this company again and I hope you tell others not to either.

“I recently ordered a bag from http://www.ipursevalley.co and it was a really bad quality bag. When I complained, they asked me to send it back which costed me £30 and promising a new bag. The bag arrived but it was broken as soon as I opened it and it was a poor replica of the MM artsy. It did not look anything like the actual bag. Now, they wont give me the money back and want me to spend another £30 to send this broken bag back! I am disappointed and they ripped me off. I would never recommend purse valley or club couture for replica bags!! horrible horrible quality bags!!

I would really like to thank you girls for emailing me before I created a potential headache for myself, and hope that these experiences will help others! This site operates under a lot of aliases so you really need to be careful when you are shopping online to avoid one of their traps! If anyone else has a horrible/amazing experience feel free to email me (with pictures preferably) at [email protected]. I hope this post will serve as a warning to anyone out there who is shopping for a knockoff.
