NO MORE ANONYMOUS POSTING

I have been so busy that I have not been checking comments as often as I used to and tonight I saw a post by a crazy anti-rep person on one of my Reader's Submitted Review.

She was rude and obnoxious and acted like just because she happens to own the real bag she is better than those who buys replicas.

Well let me tell you miss snobby, I have many Authentic bags probably more than you do because people who own very little are the ones that likes to brag! Yet I still buy replicas and even people who are wealthy that can easily afford to buy the authentic will still buy replicas so it isn't always because they can't afford to save up for the real one. If you can get almost the same quality for a fraction of the price it is called SMART SHOPPING!

I have no idea what you are doing on my blog in the first place. If you are against fakes why would you come to a blog that is clearly advertising them in your face? How you feel about replicas is your business and we can respect what you choose to do with your money so why can't you be mature enough to respect what others choose to do with theirs?

Please GO GET A LIFE!!! I DO NOT APPRECIATE PEOPLE LIKE YOU POSTING BULLSHIT on my blog and offending my readers, especially those that took time out of their day to submit reviews that I could share with others.

And for all my dear friends and blog readers, I apologize but I must now change the settings on the blog so that you must be registered in order to post comments. It was originally set this way but someone requested for me to allow anonymous posting because they were afraid of having their identity revealed so I told them I would do it for a time and if there are no problems I would leave it that way. But it only takes one bad apple to ruin it for everyone else. I do not want to have to moderate comments or worry about deleting the comments like the one left by this obnoxious woman. By requiring users to register in order to post I can BAN specific users like this woman.

People like this woman just can't seem to mind her own business and obviously does not know where she isn't welcome!

I am a lover and a buyer of BOTH Authentic and Replica's and will continue to buy them for as long as I want to and nothing you or anyone else can say or do is going to change that so please take your unwanted opinions and comments and stuff it up your ASS!!!

Cheers!!!

Sarah

  1. You are right! If they are against reps why do they read your blog??

    1. I guess they just want to make it known they have $ to buy the real thing so they can show off and make themselves appear better than those of us who buy replicas. But there are many people that buy both and some who can afford to buy authentic but still prefer to buy replicas.

  2. Hi Sarah,

    I agree with you 100%. On another note :), I had contacted you regarding a recommendation for the best chanel replica site for the best price. Can you please offer me a suggestion?

    Also, I would like to buy a Galliera PM Damier Ebene purse. The only two sites that seem to be recommended that have it in stock are Shally and Vanco. Which do you think I shoud go with? The price is pretty much the same....

    I sincerely appreciate your help. I wanted to ask you first because I am not as fortunate as some others so I want to try to make the best decision possible before I make my purchase.

    Thank you so much for providing all of this valuable information regarding all types of bags!!! I love it :-)

    1. Hi Kim, it is hard for me to recommend someone the best place to buy because we all have such varying opinions. If you have seen my Chanel reviews you will notice that I tend to stick with the lower price range therefore the bags I buy are not the best quality. Fang and Uncle Bench seem to offer the best Chanel but they are pricy so it all comes down to how picky you are and what you're willing to spend.

      If you are happy with the quality of the bags that I have reviewed than I can suggest Vanco and AliExpress. However they are both slow shippers and Vanco especially has HORRIBLE customer service so if you buy from them just be prepared for a possible long wait and bad communication on his part. Some people have had better luck and I did too on my first two purchases but the 3,4 & 5th orders have all taken longer each time and he does not update on any issues. My last order didn't ship out for almost a month after payment and you have to check that he has the item in stock before paying because they don't do it. If you order he will send an invoice for pmt and only after they have your $ will they let you know if something is out of stock.

      AliExpress (Wholesale Bags) have pretty good bags in my opinion especially for the price which includes shipping and they are a little faster. It took 2 weeks from the time I paid to the day I received.

      On the Galleria, I have to agree that they do not come in the Damier Ebene but I think it was available for Special Order. LV allows certain styles to be special ordered in different materials. For example the Trevi. I saw it in Azur on Fashion Phile which is a well known consignment shop selling only authentic pre-owned luxury items. They had a Trevi PM in the Damier Azur and had I seen it anywhere else I would have said it was a fake for sure but the description says the client had it special ordered. So if you really like the style you can always claim it was a special order :). But those that are familiar with LV and do not know about special orders will automatically assume your bag is a fake so keep this in mind.

      XoXo,

      Sarah

    2. Sarah,

      The two sites you recommended, do they accept CC or Paypal? If not, are you SURE they wont scam me with Western Union? This has happened to me before...

      Delete
    3. And also, what seller are you buying from On AliExpress? When I put in Chanel, nothing but electronics come up. LOL.

      Delete
    4. Hi Blay, yes both Vanco and AliExpress accept CC but I believe VISA is the only option. Neither one accepts PayPal due to their strict regulations. And with Vanco if you pay with CC there is an additional 10% added to your invoice which he uses to cover his fees. If you use W/U you will get a 10% discount instead but will end up paying $15 or more in W/U fee depending on where you are so it kind of ends up balancing out. I always pay Vanco via W/U because it comes out less for me though not by much.

      In regards to your other question, I purchase my Chanel from "Wholesale Bag" on AliExpress. AliExpress does not allow the sale of replicas so to get around this the sellers will photoshop out all logos and names and they will not use the brand names in their listing so you have to use search terms like "Jumbo, Quilted Lambskin, Maxi, etc.". Here is the link to my review on Wholesale Bag: http://purse-princess.blogspot.com/2013/04/wholesale-bag-on-aliexpress-seller.html

      Keep in mind that you can always find all the sellers I recommend on my "Recommended Seller List". Just scroll to the top and click on the menu tab. You will see a list of sellers and there will be links to a review if one is available.

      Hope this helps!

  3. Amen Sister!! Sarah. We LOVE your blog. Please do not ever get discouraged!

    L Williams: You mention the Galliera PM in Damier Ebene. I dont think LV ever made this version? Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I think it only comes in Damier Azur and LV Monogram?? That is something you ALWAYS want to check. A lot of replica sites make bags that have never been made by LV. You can rock a replica any way you choose, but I would not wear a bag never made. Dead ringer rep.

    1. Yes, it usually only comes in DA and Mono but like I said above I believe it was available for special order. There were quite a few bags that have been special ordered in different materials not available on their site or store but if you really want to stay safe it is best to stay away from those items for the reasons I posted above :).

    2. Yes, this bag was only available for special order and I don't think they make them anymore. The Galliera usually only come in Azur and Mono print. But I really like this bag and still am interested in buying one despite this. Shally has been very pleasant to deal with so far and they have one in stock. Do you know anything about Shally's bags? Her prices are very low but I am willing to pay a little more for better quality. I have been reading your blog for a while and I have similar viewpoints on my expectations. I realize my bag may not be perfect but I want the best for my money, and I would rather not spend toooo much :-)

      Delete
    3. I have not ordered from Shally personally but the reviews I've read are a hit or miss. If you do decide to buy from her make sure you ask her to check stock first. It seems a lot of her bags are not in stock even though they are listed on the site.

      I just received my Portobello PM from Vanco and I LOVE it! Their prices are the lowest out of all the sellers I buy from but their customer service is also one of the worst so I can't recommend them unless you are very patient and willing to accept the risk that if you end up with a damaged bag or bad rep you are pretty much stuck with it because he will not accept returns or issue refunds no matter what. Any emails concerning issues will get you the silent treatment so I suggest going elsewhere.

      I have not looked but have you asked Joy to see if she has it available? Also Mindy, Sandy & Fang. They all seem to have good quality items and good customer service though I have not personally bought from any of them yet. I have seen enough reviews from members I trust to feel comfortable in recommending them. Let me know who you decide to go with and I'd love to see your bag once you get it and share your review on my blog if you decide to do one :).

    4. I checked and Vanco has it. Someone named Bobo responded but he said they are too busy to do preshipment pics. Shally said they would thoroughly check the bag before shipment but they don't do preshipment pics either. I am going to check with the other sellers to do a comparison on prices and service. I'll let you know who I go with. I have a few bags and small items from Joy that I really like. I checked with her and she no longer carries this bag. She used to be the only seller I was comfortable buying from. Now with all of these options I don't know which way to go :-). I'll definitely let you know which seller I use and I'll also do a review. Thank you for your help!!

      Delete
    5. You're welcome and I can't wait to see who you finally decide to go with. Personally I try to stick with Joy if she has the item in stock but that's not always the case so it's good to have back-up sellers :).

    1. Right back at you Ashlie! And I got your email at work but was too busy to respond at the time. I'm so glad your mom still enjoys the Gucci. It beats sitting around collecting dust in my closet lol.

  6. It is so funny. It is because of people like her that I dislike most luxury blogs not just on purses but on shoes, jeans, jewelry etc. After reading a few post from people like her and I start to hate my stuff and don't want it anymore. The women here are so refreshingly human. You can love a purse without being so defined by it that you find replicas a threat to your identity.

    1. That makes total sense Kathy! I used to be a member of the Purse Forum when I first started buying designer bags. I haven't logged in in almost a year now so not even sure if my username still works. I just couldn't stand to see anymore snooty, obnoxious women who think they are better simply because of how much they paid for their bags and accessories.

      Mind you not all of them are that way. There are actually quite a few members of our forum that are also members there as well but they only go there to conduct research so it is a good resource for that but I still prefer to stay away.

  7. Yikes! What the heck is going on?! Sorry you had to deal with such a troll :(. I'm glad I didn't have to see what they wrote, and thanks for cleaning up their mess!

    1. Blay, I am going through emails now so hopefully I will get to yours soon. I am sorry but it's just hard to do them during the week and I have a bad tendency to start from the top down instead of from the bottom up which means I answer the most recent emails first. I need to start doing it the other way around. If you don't hear back from me by Sunday please email again because it is possible it did not come through.

      Or if it is not a private manner just post it here and I will answer as best I can :).
