Chloe Bag Replica vs Chloe Dupe: Do You Know The Differences?

Categories:Other Brands

I’ve already expressed my love for the Drew Chloe bag replica on different occasions. But I know I’m not the only one who has a soft spot for this beautiful bag. What I noticed in particular is that there is an impressive number of Chloe Drew dupe bags out there and this means the style is very sought-after.

Chloe Bag Replica vs Chloe Drew Lookalike

Right now there is only one Chloe Drew bag review on the blog but in the meantime many more replica sites have brought this bag in their handbag collection.

This Chloe bag replica is pretty affordable compared to other leather replica bags and also not very difficult to imitate. Still, there are some details about this bag that make all the difference.

First of all, a good Chloe bag replica should be made of real leather, either if it’s smooth or pebbled and should be lined with suede. The weight and the color of the hardware is also important. Make sure the hardware of the Chloe Drew replica is not tarnished or dark gold. The logo under the flap should be centered and it should have the same color as the hardware. Chloe bags feature a unique type of accent mark, so make sure you check that too. It should not be accent aigu, it should look like this:

Authentic Chloe Drew Stamp

Sure, these are general tips, it’s not a how to spot a Chloe bag replica guide, this bag has some more work to do for that privilege haha! But you should still use them to choose a really good Chloe purse replica. Chloe replica bags are really having a moment now, so you’ll need to learn how to spot the most common flaws in order to avoid them. At the same time, you should take into account that these Chloe replica designer handbags are relatively small, so you should pay less than $300 for a good replica or at least that’s what I think.

Chloe Bag Replica vs Chloe Drew Dupe

Finding a Chloe Drew dupe is not hard at all either. You’ll find plenty on Aliexpress for example and here’s an example:

Chloe Drew Dupe on Aliexpress

But please don’t mistake a Chloe Drew dupe for a Chloe bag replica. Even though some dupes look extremely similar to the real deal in terms of design, a dupe is an inspired, lookalike bag, not a replica. You may have heard about the Chloe dupe made by Forever 21, for example:

Chloe Drew Inspired Bag Made By Forever 21

And also these Chloe Drew lookalikes made by Inzi:

An imitation bag will not have the logo stamp or the logo engraving on the front. It’s really important to know this difference in order not to buy a Chloe inspired bag by mistake. Dupes are usually cheaper than replicas, so the price might be tempting, but just make sure you check the photos first. The best Chloe replica handbags will have all the stamps and the engravings in the right places, not just a similar look.

This goes for the Chloe Faye bags as well. Even though the new Chloe bags have minimal discreet branding, it’s still there. The Chloe Faye bag will feature the logo on the front flap (both for the small and the medium) and also an embossed logo stamp in the interior. That’s all! Maybe some of you are thinking “Why should I pay more money just for these two stamps?” Well, others care about these things and if you really want your Chloe bag replica to look authentic, the branding of the bag is essential. If you don’t care about your bag looking just like the real deal, then it does make more sense to buy a Chloe dupe instead in order to save up some money.

And here is a Chloe Faye dupe. Notice it doesn’t have the logo on the flap?

But there’s also a different kind of Chloe dupe I wanted to tell you about. I’m talking about eBay scammers that are trying to sell their fake bags as real. The Chloe Drew has increased in popularity, which means there are more chances now for scammers to try to take advantage of people who are looking for this bag. This means you are likely to find more Chloe knockoff bags on eBay too. So if you want to keep yourself safe from a Chloe Drew dupe or a Chloe handbag replica, don’t believe that just because a bag is on eBay it necessarily means it’s real too!

Chloe Faye Bag Review

I haven’t received a Chloe Faye bag review with pictures yet. Still, a reader of the blog told me she got a replica Chloe Faye small bag in black from Bagaholics and even though she didn’t send me any photos yet, here is what she told me:

“Thanks to your sound advice about purchasing a Chloe Faye bag (small) I now have in my hands a lovely replica in black!

I was wondering if you’d like some photos to critique – there are some small flaws such as a slightly off centre logo and the chain is slighly too gold – but it holds up well next to my friends real bag! The service from bagaholics was superior to many western brands and the delivery came without any custom fees (rare for the uk!)”

Hope I’ll get some photos of this Chloe bag replica too!

So what would you rather choose: a Chloe bag replica or a Chloe dupe?

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:

Whosbag.com Inspired Balenciaga Part Time

Whosbag.com Inspired Balenciaga Part Time

Designers-itbag.net Replica Balenciaga Part Time

Replica Balenciaga Part Time

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

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?

SHOPPING WITH JAMES: HERMES EVELYNE III TGM VS TPM

Categories:Other Brands

Hermes-Evelyne-III-TGM-Bag-2

Have you ever spotted the Hermes Evelyne III TGM next to the Hermes Evelyne III TPM?

A little introduction for those that are not familiar with the Evelyne Bag: The TGM is the largest size in the Hermes Evelyne III Collection, measuring 16’ x 16.5’ x 4’ inches. The TPM is the smallest size, measuring 11.25’ x 12’ x 2.5’ inches.

If you put these two bags together, you can compare the sizes visually. The TPM is like a little baby compared to the giant TGM. So can imagine how much you can stock inside the TGM?

Our friend James went to the Hermes boutique to hunt for the Evelyne III TGM Bag and here’s what the SA told her: ‘This size is uncommon and very rarely ordered’. More over, the SA hasn’t seen this bag for years. So he went to check in other stores and was able to locate one.

For those that are interested, this Evelyne III TGM Bag is from the year 2012, in the color Vert de Gris. The price is $4320 CAD.

Hermes-Goliath-Double-Tour-Bracelet-in-Etain

Hermes-Rodeo-Charm

The other items are the Hermes Goliath Double Tour Bracelet in Etain and the Rodeo Charm in GM (which is also not easy to find). The price for the Rodeo Charm in Gm is $700 CAD.

CELINE RING BAG VS ZARA GRADUATED BOWLING BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Celine-Ring-Bag-vs-Zara-Graduated-Bowling-Bag

Celine-Ring-Bag-vs-Zara-Graduated-Bowling-Bag-2

It’s showtime for two of our bags today, ladies – the Celine Ring Bag and Zara Graduated Bowling Bag. Just a disclaimer though, we’re not exactly battling-out pieces today for bag supremacy…instead, we just want to set out similarities and differences, and maybe (just maybe) be able to give you some clarity about possible alternatives. Well then, let’s start!

First of all, the Celine Ring Bag needs no introduction – it’s a classy piece made with only the finest skins available (goatskin, calfskin, crocodile, take your pick). Also, it comes in an array of colors to choose from – for the past seasons, this piece has been undergoing some welcome twists. It has a fine structure, pockets and side folds which expand to accommodate all of your stuff…for the price of around €1,800 EUR. Hmmm…we’ll see about that.

Next, the Zara Graduated Bowling Bag offers the same kind of functionality, but let’s just say that it falls short on the luxury appeal (like comparing a stone to a boulder) when it comes to the main materials used which is polyester and polyurethane. Depending on use and care, this bag may last you some time though. Also, it has that same outside pocket with the Ring Bag, which gives you more space for organization…for the price of around $70 USD. A far cry from the Celine Ring Bag, but well, it’s really up to you to decide.

So, what is it going to be? Are you in it for the long run, or are you after a great bargain? Tell us your thoughts and comment now!

CELINE TRIO BAG VS PROENZA SCHOULER PS11 MINI BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Celine-Trio-Bag-Vs-Proenza-Schouler-PS11-Mini-Bag

Celine-Trio-Bag-What-Color-Leather-And-Price-2

You know what’s the worst thing that can happen after you’ve purchased your favorite designer handbag? And especially when the bag is expensive. It’s when something breaks within a week or month.

Even when it breaks within five months, it’s heart-breaking.

Instead of joy and happiness, the whole experience taste bitter.

At BRAGMYBAG we heard this a lot – the chains are damaged, the leather strap broke, the serial code tag in the interior is missing, leather is starting to wear off and so on…

You need to take your bag and go back to the store to check it out. What a drag! And when you get bad service, it’s even worst. If they tell you they will send it back for repair, you will miss your bag for weeks.

We talked to Gabriela the other day, after we posted an article about the Celine Trio Bag. Her leather strap broke after a few months of use. She did not even carried heavy stuff, but only her keys and small wallet, so weight was not the issue.

But there are a lot of bags with thin strap, and we need to be very careful. Gabriela went back to the store, luckily she bought it at Neiman Marcus, and they were kind enough to change the bag. But because she had bad experience with the Celine Trio Bag, she picked the Proenza Schouler PS11 Bag (via Elyse Walker for $1950 USD).

The PS11 bag is a great choice though; it’s also stunning, spacious, functional and great as an everyday bag. However, the Celine Trio Bag is still the favorite among fashionista’s, it’s popular and gorgeous.

Sometimes you can get a designer bag that breaks within a few months, we even heard this from Chanel products or Dior products. But in your case, what will you do? Switch to another brand or get it repaired? Tell your story below.
