Discover the Pitfalls of Buying Designer Style Handbags

Are you a shopper who cannot live without the latest trends in fashion? If so, you know that owning designer labels on your new handbags is a very expensive but deliberate choice. An alternative to spending too much of your salary on a great new style is to turn to designer inspired lines.

Perhaps you have not priced a designer bag lately. A Jimmy Choo handbag may easily cost one thousand dollars. Coach products range from five hundred to one thousand dollars. So, a fancy new purse from a well-known designer represents an investment of funds. The prize is a status symbol that one may display on the shoulder. It will be an object of envy to the discerning eyes of women with a strong awareness of fashion.

One need not live in a large city to have access to these fine wares. Shoes and purses with designer pedigrees may be purchased over the Internet with a few clicks. If money is not a concern, the online versions of well-known stores are a safe choice to buy authentic handbags at full price. Unfortunately, if you deviate from the high-end sites, you may be risking authenticity and your own self respect..

There is a pervasive and illegal black market online for replica purses and handbags. The idea is that they are intended to fool the purchaser. They have fake labels and may uncannily resemble the real designer products, but are generally of inferior quality. They may also represent the work of underpaid laborers. Recently, legal actions have forced many of these illicit sites to cease operation. Still, buyers should be aware they do exist and proceed with caution when buying high end goods online.

Vuitton, Burberry, Gucci and Fendi are a few of the most copied labels. A savvy shopper may turn once again to Internet sources to help learn how to recognize fakes. There are small details in appearance, documented by eBay reviewers, which will help you determine if the bag you may want to buy from a private or lesser-known seller is legitimate. The old saying, 'caveat emptor' (buyer beware) has never been truer in these situations. If the price is too good to be true, there is a reason - it may be a fake.

Still, one should not be deterred from the goal of buying a trendy new purse online. If you do not mind going without the actual designer label, you can find many sites to provide what you need. Sellers may legally offer alternatives based on the super high-priced originals. Call them what you will, designer inspired, mirror images, or similar words all mean that you can get the general style of the hot handbags without the hot price tag.

To many who love high fashion, what matters most is that they own and wear the latest in current trends. Others may not care if the label represents the original designer. Their bags may not last as long, or feel as luxurious as the authentic ones, but only the most discerning eyes will know the difference. This is one way to happily live within your means, yet present a fashionable appearance. However for your own peace of mind, I would urge you not to be tempted to buy fakes or illegal trade marked designer wear.
