Hi, my name is Sara,

I created this blog to share my passion for designer handbags which started sometime in 2011. Since then I have purchased well over 100 bags (probably close to 200) both Authentic and Replica as well as not so well known designers.

Unfortunately due to lack of room and my ever changing tastes many have been sold, gifted or traded. I simply do not have room to store that many bags so I must part with old ones to make room for new ones. I purchase about 5-10 almost every month so you can imagine that most of my bags rarely get used before they end up in a new home.

Someone asked me once why I buy replicas when I can afford to buy the authentic. My answer to that: Yes I can afford to buy Authentic and have purchased many but they are very costly. I would only be able to buy 1-3 at a time then save for months before I can buy another. I'm too greedy and too impatient to do this but the biggest reason of all is because I tend to get tired of a bag after only using it a few times.

I've discovered that most brands do not hold their value so when I buy a bag for $1,000+ and end up selling it for only $500 it really hurts. I am not wealthy (not even close) though I do make a decent income and it helps that my husband takes care of our finances. This allows me to spend what I make on anything I want. At one point that was clothing, then it was shoes, jewelry and now handbags :). I go through phases and then I'll buy nonstop until I get tired and move onto something else lol.

Why should I spend thousands on ONE bag then save for months before I can buy another if I can buy 5 or more quality replicas for the price of one authentic? Replicas are getting better and better. Some are so good only an expert can point out any imperfections.

Louis Vuitton Canvas are especially easy to replicate. I have some that I would consider to be very close to mirror image quality! However, certain brands or styles are much harder to replicate. Take Hermes for example. I have purchased many Hermes Replicas from various sellers and have yet to find one that I feel can pass as the real thing. Some are very well made and beautiful but when compared to the original there are almost always visible flaws if you know what to look for.

When I first started collecting handbags I purchased only Authentic bags directly from the brand boutique or high end department stores. It was very expensive, I spent close to $30k that first year. Then I discovered consignment shops such as Yoogis Closet and Fashion Phile that allowed me to buy authentic pre-owned but still in new or like new condition and save up to 75% off the retail price. I thought I hit the jackpot until I stumbled upon the replicas. Now I can have the styles I want and as many variation as I'd like at a fraction of the cost and never worry about getting tired of a bag and losing thousands when I end up selling them.

I am a huge fan of Hermes, Prada and Balenciaga but I've purchased from many other brands as well. In the 2 years I've acquired this addiction I have purchased over 30 Authentic handbags from many of the well known designers including but not limited to: Hermes, Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Versace and more. I've stopped counting how many replica's I've purchased but I can tell you it is over 100 though I don't have them all any longer. I can only keep about 75 bags at any one time. If I go over this number I'll have bags in my living room and kitchen too lol.

The intent of my blog is to share my findings, to review the bags I purchase and the various websites I buy from. Although my blog will have both authentic and replicas the main purpose is to help us all (myself included) find well made replicas that are very close to the real deal. I hope to encourage my readers to share their finds as well so that we can all benefit from our experiences and help one another out in finding the best places to buy from and to avoid scammers and poor quality.

Please know that if you decide to purchase from any of the websites I refer to, I make absolutely no commission for the sale nor am I affiliated with them in any way. I am not a seller and am not interested in ever becoming one though I do sell some of my personal stock when I tire of them or find that they are no longer suit my style.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me. If you have any questions or would simply like to drop me a note please feel free to leave a comment or send me a quick email at purseforprincess@gmail.com and I will respond as soon as I am able to do so.

Enjoy reading!

  2. Hello there,

  4. Hi. I just stumbled upon your site while looking for replica LV artsy or Gucci Sukey bags. This will be my first time buying a quality replica online. I'm concerned the LV replicas will be obvious because the handles won't darken over time. Do you know if that is the case and to be expected since it is a replica? Also, what is your reco for the best sites for either LV or Gucci? I saw Sandy's site but could not find FabAAA/Joy's but I'm a newbie. Thanks and any guidance appreciated.

  10. I, like many others on here, stumbled across your blog when looking for top quality replicas. I am so pleased and impressed with your reviews and attention to detail. I feel like thi sis what is needed to help and guide others in spending their money wisely. For years, I spent tons of money on the real thing. I recently had a baby and was laid off of my job. Although I am now a stay-at-home mom, I would still like purchase the sort of bags that I love, but definitely not at the retail cost. This is the closest way for me to do so. Thank you so much for this site! Please, keep posting, and continue to let us know who has the BEST quality as I will definitely place many orders with them. :)

  17. Hello 5hong,

    My name is Craig, I am an American expat from Los Angeles, California currently residing in Bangkok, Thailand where I have lived and maintained a business for the past 16 years (www.edulabsglobal.com and www.leapingsmart.com). I just recently started a designer product business, starting with Designer Handbags www.thebrandboutique.net.

    I’m not sure how many email you get from guys, especially straight guys, but here goes mine to you 

    A few of my close female friends in America referred me to your fantastic blog, and after reviewing your site for the past 2 weeks, I will be forever grateful to them for directing me to you . I really like your style and insightful, informative, knowledgeable, down to earth way that you relate and respond to your readers….Obviously, even guys like me

    I would like to send you a more detailed eail and I was wondering if I may send it to your regular email address? I urchased some items from Purse Valley and was about to purchase about $8,000 USD more and then I see you have them on your “Blacklist”.

    My personal email is smartteamhq@gmail.com or craigh@thebrandboutique.net or you can email me from my website: www.thebrandboutique.net and it will come to me by default.
    I hope to hear from you very soon.

    Sincerely yours,

    Craig

  18. I really like this blog! I had been buying pretty bad replicas, and giving them away! I am now getting the nice ones. I
    used to buy authentic also, it is a HUGE waste to me now. The fact is that a lot of the time when you purchase the real ones people may think it is a fake anyway. lol. If you are happy with what you got, who cares what people think.

    The comparison on here (real vs fake) of the LV Speedy 30 Damier Ebene Bandouliere is a great example. The differences are so tiny, the bag could totally past as an authentic! :-)

  22. Has anyone purchased from Jackysell before? I recently purchased a Celine phantom from him and it's the worst replica I've seen. After I sent pictures & he admitted the bag has visible flaws the communication has ended - he is not responding to any of my messages. He's on the recommended list of sellers one of the reasons I decided to purchase from him. It's now obvious I'm out $299 - please give feedback on purchases from him since I haven't seen any. I'm not sure what the criteria is to be on the recommended sellers list.

  23. Hi, One of your posts says you live in Asia and another in California. Are you posting real reviews or are you selling the bags? Just being cautious because I never bought replicas before and am trying to be careful not to purchase through dishonest sites.

  24. I'm interested in buying these handbags, but is it illegal? Also, is it true that I would be seen as a morally dishonest person for buying them? I've read a lot of controversies behind them.

  29. Hi,
    I just found out that Joy's website is now closed for good. I'm so sad! Looks like a bunch of the recommended websites are being taken down. Can some please tell me where to get the best LV replicas there are? I just looked at FallinFashion website and I am not impressed with the LV's. The stitching on one of the speedy's looks horrible! Please help! Thanks!

  44. I purchased a bag from Cindy. Cindy took over from Joy also known as Fabaaa. I purchased the gucci sukey bag and lv neverfull tote. None on the bags look the same as the picture shown on the website as examples. I know it wont be the same as the real deal. But there leather looks very bad and the colors dont match. The GG Gucci logos are not where they are supposed to be. The bag should be beige and it is brown. Also the LV letters are too light that it looks see through. That is too embarrassing for mw to carry. This is not the quality I'm interested in. It looks very fake and not a good rep like Joy used to sell. I contact both Cindy and Joy over a week ago for a return like the website promises, but no one replied to me. The took my money and the merchandise is horrible. Almost $400. I want to return both bags or exchange and they just took my money. The also made me pay by wire transfer, so I cant get it back. :(

  55. Hi I'm Veronique from Belgium. And I ordered at Sandy's a LV speedy 30 monogram the delivery went smoothly, from Hong Kong to Belgium you would think a few weeks but from boarding to delivery 10 days. Sandy is very sweet and takes the time to mail to you she is very reliable and also its site, what you see is what you get. The LV speedy was wonderful, the handels, the finish just fine. I order definitely still at her. Greetings from Belgium
