Girl Crush: Gigi Hadid’s Designer Bags

I’m sure you’ve all seen the Hadid sisters (Bella & Gigi) all over social media, and I have to say I am a fan of their exotic looks! But I’m even more so a fan of their beautiful designer bags they carry around while looking stunning in the process of doing so. Below I’ve put together some of my favorite bags that Gigi’s been spotted wearing. Take a look and let me know what you think of her bags in the comments below!

Love Gigi’s Prada Saffiano tote here!

What do you think of the feather pom pom accessory? I personally love it especially when it’s been paired with a croc YSL bag like here.

Hermes can do nobody any wrong. Love the vibrant blue color pictured right especially.

Marc Jacobs is a great brand because it is more affordable as an authentic bag, and this particular model is beautiful!

My Designer Handbag Wishlist for 2017

Hi dolls!

Hope your 2017 has been rolling well so far. Mine has been rolling beautifully so far, and I hope this is the year where we as a world see some more peace, and less pain out there! My New Year’s resolution aside from trying to get healthier, is to have an even more fashionable year than 2016, so I thought I’d start off my first post of the year with a wish list for bags this year!

These are the top six bags I am hoping to score this year (either as replicas or authentic – whatever I can find/afford). I’m looking forward to sharing more reviews with everyone this year. Take a look at my wish list below and let me know in the comments what bags you are hoping to personally score this year, and how your keeping up with your New Year’s resolution so far.

  1. Louis Vuitton Vosges MM

On the Louis Vuitton site this is what they say about the bag: “The Vosges bag presents a supple yet structured shape. Its refined design will enhance every elegant silhouette. The Rose Fizzy Braided detail is a playful hint to the Couture spirit of the House and the contrast of colors adds a luminous touch to the bold Kaki bag.”

I LOVE this bag. I generally love the Empreinte leather collection from LV, and the color and style of this particular bag give a very romantic vibe off to me so I’m hoping to add this bag to my collection in 2017.

 

2. Céline Luggage Phantom in Medium

celine-luggage-phantom-medium

Fashion week is always so exciting because of all the new designs we get to see from all of our favorite designers. The second I laid my eyes on this Céline Phantom Luggage from their 2017 Spring collection I instantly fell in love. Those diamond shaped cut outs really make the bag stand out, and I really love how much of a statement piece this bag is. Fingers crossed a good replica manufacturer reproduces this bag!

 

3. Yves Saint Laurent Monogram Shoulder Bag

https://i1.wp.com/www.laiamagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/gigi-hadid-saint-laurent-monogram-matelasse-large-shoulder-bag.jpg

I love the lines on this bag, and also the red! Yes another red bag – but hey I’m trying to be adventurous this year and red is my go to color! I especially love the contrast between the gold hardware and the red leather.

4. Hermes Kelly 32cm

https://i1.wp.com/www.pursebop.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/article-0-1A43142000000578-247_634x781.jpg

I’ve always wanted the Kelly pictured above in that exact leather and hardware color combo. This is the year I’m hoping my dreams will come true!

5. Chloe Drew Bag

https://i1.wp.com/lauren-nelson.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Chloe-Bag-1.jpg

The Chloe Drew bag has been on my wishlist since 2016 (unfortunately I never snagged it last year), but it’s a new year, and this is the year I’m hoping to make this bag mine! I especially love the suede/smooth calfskin leather combo – it is adorable! It fits in with the general hippy-chic look that is so popular now, and I think it would be wonderful to wear out casually while running my daily errands!

6. Mulberry Bayswater

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/74/a4/77/74a477a2a523a0a946543aab159651c0.jpg

I love the practical yet sophisticated look of this bag. I have yet to own any Mulberry bag so I’m hoping to get my “feet wet” into this brand this year with one of their most popular bags a.k.a the Bayswater!

Perfect Hermes Birkin Replica Review

Ok guys I’m gonna have to preface this post with one word: O.M.G. I have found possibly the best source for Hermes replicas ever. Now before we get to discussing the actual bag I want to say that Hermes is probably one of the most popular knockoffs people go after. Why? Because it is extremely expensive, and puts a dent into most people’s budgets. I mean if you think about it, you can get about 10-15 Louis Vuitton bags for the sticker price of 1 Hermes – that’s pretty crazy considering Louis Vuitton is already a fairly pricey luxury brand itself.

What makes Hermes stand out compared to other brands? I’m gonna have to say it is the emphasis on the leather quality and the overall simplicity of the bag which oozes elegance. At least that’s what stands out to me. As you all know I have been a handbag lover for many years (since my teens) but I have never thought about owning a Hermes bag until very recently. Another reason why I’ve always hesitated to buy a replica Hermes is because it requires a pretty big investment (the really accurate replica Hermes bags are always over $1000). But I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a 25cm Birkin (I love the smaller Hermes pieces) from Perfect Hermes which came recommended in an email from a blog reader. I bought this bag around 3 months ago when I decided to splurge on my summer haul (I scooped up about 5 new bags during this shopping spree)

The site for this replica Hermes company states they only produce 50 bags a month since they use Hermes’ original hand sewn method to make the bags so it was nice to see how much dedication they show to the process of making the bags. I purchased my bag in a natural tan color with gold hardware, and contrasting white stitching. The bag’s leather is amazing – apparently the import it in from Europe. You can see through the photos of the bag I have taken the immense quality of the texture. The hardware is also very precise – it’s not real gold hardware (they state no replica company produces it with real gold hardware), but it’s anodized which is good enough. I’ve compared the bag to my friend Michelle’s real Birkin (she has a big authentic Hermes collection – lucky gal), and the differences can’t be spotted by the naked eye. Here are pictures of my bag (get ready to swoon):

I also went on the consignment site 1st Dibs and searched a Hermes Birkin in a similar contrast stitch color and found it to be actually sewn with much less care than my replica. I found this really shocking since the bag is going for $16,606 on their site and I paid $1400 for my Birkin 25 which is 1/10 of their price.

perfect-hermes-birkin-replica-bag-togo-realvsfake-authentic-replica-hermes-closed-stitching-flapauthentic-hermes-vs-fake-hermes-bag

I often see authentication guides calling out fakes for their sketchy stitching but clearly it seems that the authentic manufacturing standards are hell-bent on perfectly straight stitching either. I will do a more detailed fake vs. real Hermes comparison shortly to compare my bag side by side with an original.

Overall this bag was a great purchase and is holding up very well. The supple leather really stands out and I think you are getting an excellent replica for the price being charged. The bag came packaged in the Hermes gift wrapping with a bow and all, and they used DHL for shipping (which was free). Since every order is a custom make they take about 2 weeks to actually make the bag and then the shipping took about another week. The company took a deposit for half the price of the bag by wire transfer in order to begin the work on it. They emailed me photos of the bag once it was done, and when I gave them the OK and paid the remaining half they emailed me the tracking slip. It was a fairly smooth transaction minus the fact that my DHL tracking number changed midway through causing some alarm on my end. Overall though I really think they are worth checking out if you are looking for a spot on Hermes replica.

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Cassandre Tassel Chain Bag Replica Review

yves-saint-laurent-cassandre-replica-authentic-fake-real-designer-discreet

Ok so I really don’t know who hasn’t seen photos of the YSL Cassandre Tassel Chain bag floating around on social media by now, and totally fallen in love with the bag. I personally have had this bag on my mind for about a year and a half but never really got around to taking the initiative to purchase it until the end of this very summer that just slipped by us. I LOVE the va-va-voom style of the bag. I personally think the YSL Cassandre is a bag you carry when you want to stand out, not when you want to blend in. I have seen a couple of people carry the bag in person and it just has this magnetic pull (for me at least) which usually leaves me wanting the bag that second at any cost. As you all read in my previous review about the Chloe Hudson bag (click here to read it if you haven’t!) I had a mini haul from Designer Discreet this summer I never got around to properly reviewing for you all, but I finally found some spare time to put it up!

This Yves Saint Laurent bag is a superb replica – I mean I could go on talking about it but I really feel like for both the YSL and Chloe bag the photos speak best for themselves. Both bags are basically perfectly crafted and as an experienced replica shopper (I guess I can call myself that … I have been doing this for over 7 years :-P) I really am finding it hard to find any flaws with them. Of course there’s things like date codes, but I’m not trying to resell the bags as originals (which is completely unethical in my opinion) so I could really care less.

A lot of YSL chain bags I see are in a soft calfskin leather but I decided to opt for something a little more glamorous which was the coated leather. I love the coated leather because I find it harder to scratch or dent than smooth calfskin, and we all know that on a night out having to worry about keeping your bag pristine is not ideal. I went for black – not surprising to any reader who understand my favorite color palette a.k.a neutrals. Overall I am very pleased with the bag and love the contrast between the black and gold hardware. I’ve posted many photos of the bag to follow which you can take a glimpse at, and let me know what you think in the comments!

Chloe Hudson Bag Replica Review

designer-discreet-chloe-ysl-bag-review

This post is a continuation of my summer haul which I never really got to finish due to being super busy! So the first time I fell in love with the Chloe Hudson was when I saw picture of Emma Watson wearing it in black on a tabloid site. The bag is super cute and so feminine. But at the same time the bag remains understated – it’s not an in your face show-y kind of bag, but more of a demure piece that adds class to your wardrobe without having to be the star of the show. Ever since I first saw this bag I knew I HAD to have it. The only thing I wasn’t sure of was whether I had to buy it as an authentic model or if I would be able to find a replica or fake good enough to feed my craving.

When searching for the bag I decided to go back to my good old trusted source for replicas that doesn’t usually let me down – DD (which is the short code for Designer Discreet by the way). They didn’t have the bag initially on their site so I added them on wechat and asked for it and I was ecstatic to find out they did indeed have the bag! So without hesitating I sent a wire transfer right away, and began to await the arrival of my new Chloe. The bag is GORGEOUS in person and honestly one of the best replicas I have ever seen in my years as a replica shopper. The hardware is really heavy, and the leather and stitching is perfectly done. Sometimes as a buyer I feel like I should keep trying to shop at new places to discover potentially better products, but I have to say that Designer Discreet has honestly never really let me down yet. Have I ever got a bad bag from them? Not yet. I did get a damaged bag once but they replaced it for me after a couple of months of waiting (the waiting does suck with them). So I guess this mini rant is basically to show my appreciation for DD because they were the first good company I found for replicas and the one I’ve shopped at the most throughout the years.

The leather on this Chloe is gorgeous and the braiding is wonderfully done. The bag was about $405 USD with the discount they gave (compared to about $2150 for the authentic model), and I also bought a YSL Cassandre tassel chain bag and a new Prada bag with my order too to qualify for the free wallet which was an awesome deal. I’ll be adding pictures of my other bags in the haul as well shortly! The bag came with the usual plastic covered handles which protect it during the shipping process.

I went with a dark brown which looks amazing, and the golds studs really pop out when you wear it. I would really recommend this bag to anyone who is looking for a crossbody they can just throw on when they don’t feel like carrying a bigger purse. As a crossbody the bag is pretty generous in terms of interior space and it can comfortably fit goodies like your wallet and a phone. I can already tell this bag is going to become one of my staples in my collection – I have probably worn it already 20 times since I got it in the summer and have yet to get bored of it. Go ahead and check out pics of my bag below and let me know what you think of it in the comments!

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:

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.

Louis Vuitton New Neverfull Monogram Replica Review (Email Submission)

The Neverfull bag from Louis Vuitton has undergone a bit of a cosmetic makeover within the last year and the change is in my opinion for the better. What are the key changes in the bag? Well this is how most of us are used to the Neverfull looking:

old monogram canvas neverfull

The old bag featured a big pocket inside the bag and fleurs within the lining. The font was more cursive as well. What’s changed? Well there are 2 key changes. One the interior lining of the bag does not feature any fleurs (a.k.a flowers) anymore and instead the lining is simply solid straight lines featuring a more blocky-font vs. the previously cursive one. Additionally there is a detachable pouch with the bag and no interior pocket any longer!

I love this change as I have an old Neverfull myself and found the pocket by itself slightly annoying to use, and think the pouch would be much much more functional as you can easily pull it out and then hook it bag into the bag. In my world at least anything that makes life easier = better. A kind blog reader named Elle has sent in a review of a replica of the new Neverfull in monogram canvas she received from Designer Discreet! This is what Elle had to share:

Hi Angie,

Thanks so much for your blog! I’ve learned so much! Here are pictures of my LV Neo Neverfull MM that arrived yesterday. I purchased through DD. I am happy with the experience, although slow, they delivered what they promised. The bag is beautiful in my opinion and I am happy. The only fault, is the seam on the leather band around the cinch straps is sewn facing to the left. I believe it should be facing the right. Let me know your thoughts please! Thanks!

 

Here are the photos she added in the email (which look fantastic – I have added the new Neverfull to my personal wishlist as soon as I saw the photos!):

Replica Bags on IOFFER – How NOT to Buy Replicas from Them!

Hi y’all.

I received an email review from a lovely blog reader named Helen who had her first replica shopping experience on IOFFER and let’s just say it didn’t turn out pretty. Helen is a novice shopper and this was the first time she ever bought a fake or replica bag. At first she was impressed with her replicas when she got them even going as so far as to recommend IOFFER to other readers on the blog. But a few months in things started to fall apart – literally her bag and wallet turned out to be replica duds and Helen has some words of wisdom to share with her fellow replica shoppers (including you and I) out there! Here is what she had to say (with photos to follow):

I paid $50 for the bag and $10 for the wallet, in this case I got what I paid for.  This is the epitome of what a fake really looks like. Made out of cheap smelly material. I don’t remember where I answered someone’s question about wanting help in finding a good site to buy a good quality LV bag and I answered by recommending ioffer. Big mistake I take back my recommendation in purchasing women’s LV bags from this site. I’m hoping the question was from your blog and if so I hope she reads this comment.

Helen followed up with a second email to send me photos and had this to add on:

Hi Angie,

I am going to start all over and send you 13 photos again because I don’t know which ones you received and which ones you didn’t and last time I did it through my phone but this time I’m going to send it through my computer which will be better in sending photos.

I had bought several LV bags from ioffer but from 2 different sellers. The photos I am sending you the LV Metis and the double zipper wallet are both from seller: “gagamall”. I had also bought men’s wallet and the set of 4 cosmetic bags from this seller but those weren’t too bad for the money spent. I had also bought another LV Neo bag from a different seller from ioffer but haven’t gotten that bag yet but from this experience not going to expect a good quality bag I’ll let you know how it turns out as soon as I get it. Even though there are allot of different sellers on ioffer, I think they are all using the same stock photos from someplace other than their own photos. In other words the photos you see of all LV bags are fake on ioffer.

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!

Another Disappointed Customer From Pursevalley.cn (Email Review)

Hey guys I got this email recently and wanted to share with everyone another disappointed customer from Pursevalley.
