Louis Vuitton Essential V Jewelry Dupes
I'd been longing for the authentic Louis Vuitton Essential V hoop earrings for a few years but wasn't willing to spend $430 on them when they're not even real gold. And when I saw in person how small they were, that really sealed the deal. I'd imagined them quite a bit larger to give a more edgy look. One day I came across dupes for them (not branded with an LV logo) so I gave them a try. In this video I discuss the dupes as well as a matching necklace.
How to Tell if Her Bag is FAKE
Have you ever spotted someone with a luxury bag but you're not sure if it's real? If you're trying to figure it out because you want to learn more about the brand and authenticating their items then there are many ways to learn. You can watch YouTube videos, read books and articles, study photos online, and buy some of their merchandise to get a better sense of how a brand's authentic items look and feel. But if you're wondering about the authenticity of someone's bag because you're inclined to judge them for having a fake bag then you might want to stop and question why you feel this urge and why other people's handbag choices are so important to you.
My favorite book for help authenticating Louis Vuitton is Louis Vuitton City Bags. Yoogi's Closet offers great authentication guides for Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Hermes.
Unboxing & First Impressions: Chanel Deauville Dupe
I came across this bag from I Love Jewelry that's a great dupe for the Chanel Deauville tote. Personally, I would never buy the Deauville because I don't love enough to pay even a fraction of Chanel's prices but at THIS price point...yes, please. I actually scored this dupe on clearance for only $30. Unfortunately this colorway is no longer available but the shop does offer it in light gray and pastel pink as well as vegan leather versions in beige and black (I have since picked up the black one and it is also lovely.
COMPARISON: Real vs Fake Luxury Scarves
Did you know that not just luxury bags are faked but luxury scarves are, too? They're even sold on Amazon but sometimes it can be tricky to differentiate between the inspired scarves and the fake ones. In this video I go into detail (with examples of each) about what to look for (and what to watch out for!) in the quality and design of these silk scarves.
Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis DUPE: Coach Cassie
Coach recently released a dupe for the popular Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis: the Cassie Crossbody. Being all leather and a fraction of the price of even Vuitton's canvas PM ($350 vs $1,800), it's no surprise that the Cassie is flying off shelves. Some die hard Coach fans argue that the Cassie is a remodel of the Coach Court bag but a simple visual comparison reveals that the similarities between the Cassie and Pochette Metis are much more striking than those between the Cassie and Court. In fact, the Cassie's resemblance to the Pochette Metis is undeniable. It's almost a copy. It's also a fantastic way for those who love the PM to get the essence of that bag without the high cost or the notorious quality issues.

Review: FAKE Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis
Thinking of buying a fake bag but don't want to spend hundreds on it, especially when you can't see it in person first? This video shows you what you might get even if you take every precaution to order what looks like a beautiful replica at a low price.

Before I started buying authentic luxury bags, I purchased a few fakes. This video tells the story of why I made those choices, what happened to the bags, and which fakes I still have in my current collection.
