Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Shoulder-Clutch-in-Velvet

Because the purpose of our site is to inform you about exclusive handbags, we thought you might want to know; what’s in the Fall Winter 2014 Bag Collection besides what’s already been published on the Chanel Website.

We already covered a few major ‘must haves’, like the Chanel Easy Flap Bag and the Chanel Chevron Flap Bag. They are never-seen before, beyond gorgeous!

Here you go, the Chanel Quilted Clutch Bag from the F/W 2014 Collection. You know already what’s in right? Yes, Velvet! This material makes the color shiny and it’s both luxurious and eye-blinding. Made with love – quilted and embellished with interwoven chain links. The bag opens with a clasp and it is decorated with the CC charm.

When you wear your favorite dress tonight, then company it with a pair of high heels, remember that a clutch is as important as anything. It’s the finishing touch to your style. This clutch bag has a shoulder strap, carry it when you go from one place to another.

Now, I do not know its style code, nor the prices or the sizes. But I belief this picture tells a story.

Copy Designer Handbags vs Inspired Bags: Learn The Differences!

Categories:Other Brands

You girls truly are an inspiration to me and so are your experiences with replica bag sites. Today I thought it would be interesting to discuss about the differences between inspired bags and copy designer handbags.

Copy Designer Handbags vs Inspired Bags

The first and most important difference is that the first are not branded while the others are. So my question to you is this: how important is the branding to you?

Inspired Handbags vs. Copy Designer Handbags

As I was saying, inspired bags usually have the same style as an original designer bag but they should not have logos, tags, brand engravings and so on. If you buy an inspired handbag you shouldn’t expect it to look exactly like the authentic because that’s not even their purpose.

Copy designer handbags on the other hand should be branded and these are the bags you can actually compare with the real thing. As I said before, it’s important to keep in mind that copy designer bags are not all the same! The quality is very different and price should usually be representative for the quality of the bag. If the prices are very low, those copy designer handbags are probably not made of real leather and the details are not very well-made.

The idea for this post hit me when someone sent me two links of two different sites with the same bag. One of them was an inspired bag and the other one was a replica bag. What I noticed was that even though the inspired bag didn’t have any logos or tags, it looked much more similar to the authentic than the replica. The bag was the Balenciaga Part Time in black lambskin and here are the photos:

So, of course, I encouraged my friend to choose the first one. And then it hit me: if a bag looks almost like an original designer bag but it doesn’t have all these distinctive branding traits, does this make it less likeable? I think it depends.

First of all, some bag styles are so wildly popular that people who know anything about luxury fashion will instantly recognize them. Second of all, if you want to associate yourself with a certain brand, then you will probably choose top quality copy designer handbags that look just like the authentic.

But in my opinion, it’s better to choose an inspired bag than a copy bags that is a very obvious fake. The whole point with replica handbags is that we want them to look so similar to the authentic that no one will be able to tell they’re fakes. And let’s face it, a $100 bag that’s made of imitation leather will never look just like a real designer bag that’s two thousand dollars or so!

Of course, just like in the case of copy designer handbags, inspired bags are not all the same either. Some follow the details of the authentic bag very carefully and are made of really good materials while others look like some sad wannabes. And the prices for inspired bags vary too. And I’ll use photos to prove it to you. First, take a look at this inspired Saint Laurent Sac De Jour bag from whosbag.com and then compare it with the same bag from designers-itbag.net:

Whosbag.com Inspired Saint Laurent Sac De Jour

Whosbag.com Inspired Saint Laurent Sac De Jour

Baginc.com Inspired Saint Laurent Sac De Jour

The difference in quality is very clear. But I don’t want you to think I’m not being fair: one bag is $272 while the other is only $119. So it’s only normal for the more expensive one to look better!

Another reader of the blog told me about this site called baginc.com that also sells inspired bags. They have extremely well-known bag models like the Celine Mini Luggage or the Givenchy Antigona but they have renamed all of them. For example, you can find the Antigona under the name of “Christi”, the Hermes Kelly is here under the name of “Grace”, the Celine Luggage totes are called “Vanessa bags”, the Celine Phantom bags are the “Whitney Bags” and so on.

Baginc.com Bag Names

She told me some details about her experience with this site and I’m going to share them with you:

Baginc.com Review

“My BagInc order was placed on Oct 9th. And I was charged from my acct immediately for $109.65
So about a week went by with no shipment confirmation email… So I emailed them. So I got an email back a couple days later… And we’ve just been going back & forth since. Giving me the runaround. “I’ll send this over to my manager”. Blah Blah Blah…

I finally threatened with filing a claim & mentioning this website to my attorney & I got an email today asking if I still wanted the bag & that it will ship now. When I asked the reason they said there was a “technical issue”. They last told me that the tracking # “should work” and NOT SURPRISINGLY it isn’t… So bummed! Lesson learned. Thanks again for all of your help!”

“Update: The tracking # actually IS working. Delivery is scheduled for next Wed. We will see.. ? Wondering what the quality will be. Which after all of this BS doesn’t seem promising. Have you ever gotten a “Celine” from BagInc or heard about the quality, Eva?”

The point is that it doesn’t matter if you’re dealing with a site that sells replica bags or one that sells inspired handbags. You need to be careful in both cases because you can come across scammers on any type of site. So pay attention to the return policy and payment methods for any type of bags site!

I never personally tried this site and after checking it out I can honestly say that I would never do it. And it’s not because they don’t sell copy designer handbags but because most of their bags look cheap and low quality. But I really hope that my friend will send me some photos when her bag arrives, maybe it will turn out to be better than expected!

So girls, after seeing both inspired and replica handbags, please tell me: if you were to choose between a cheap replica bag that’s not just like the authentic and an inspired bag that looks much better but is not branded at all, what would you choose?

Have you ever bought a bag just because it is similar to a popular style from a luxury brand?

Latest Obsession: The Proenza Schouler Tiny PS1 Bag

Categories:Other Brands

It’s not uncommon for bag lovers to get stuck on a design. Some people collect Chanel Classic Flaps in numerous sizes, colors and embellishments; others trawl eBay and luxury resale sites for Balenciaga bags in the most coveted shades of 2004 and 2005. (I used to be one of those people!) For me, it seems as though the Proenza Schouler PS1 might be the bag that’s nestled itself permanently under my skin.

I only own one PS1; I bought it at the tail end of 2011 and carried it for a solid two years afterward, more or less every day. I still whip it out occasionally, but my version is the large size, and I’ve since gotten used to smaller, lighter bags. I’m always excited to see seasonal PS1s come out, though, and I’ve considered adding another one to my collection countless times in the past four years. I’m sure I will eventually; the only question is when.

If I were going to do it today, I’d definitely go for the relatively new Tiny size. Despite its name, the ten-inch-wide bag is easily big enough to hold the daily essentials required to fit inside any bag I own, and the strap is long enough to sit comfortably cross-body. This size also still has all the interior and exterior organizational compartments that I love in my big PS1, and it comes in a rainbow of colors. It may not be in my collection right now, but it’s only a matter of time.
