Is Your Authentic Designer Handbag a Fake?

Women love trappings and vanities. This includes fashion accessories and everything in between. Bags are no exception. There are about hundreds of designs and countless brands to choose from. All these are a result of their unquenchable thirst for the perfect bag.

And really, nothing is as wonderful as owning lots of authentic designer bags. If you're a man, the thrill is like owning the sports car you've been dreaming of since you were a little boy. Having at least one genuine luxury piece will make anyone feel like they're on top of the world.

But the ever-present dilemma among the bag-buying population is this-knowing if the piece they just bought is real or really fake. So how exactly do you know if your Gucci, Dior or Tory Burch handbags are real or fake?

For one, check the details. Genuine designer handbags are intricately designed and have well-embossed logos. The materials used are also durable, and are not just any ordinary kind of leather or fabric. Another thing to evaluate is the craftsmanship and the manner of which each piece has been made.

It also pays to check out the official website of these authentic pieces. If you are keenly interested in owning a certain style or design, check out its details on their website and really pay attention to the intricacies. For one thing, designer handbags do not have crooked stitching. This will greatly help you in spotting a genuine one from a fake piece when you see it on display in your favorite outlet.

Another way to find out if the bag is real is by the price. Depending on a brand's popularity, a piece could go to as high as a few thousand dollars! Any regular working woman and teenager will need to work round the clock to buy at least one piece, unless she is an heiress or a celebrity. If someone is selling the handbag to you from the back of a trunk for fifty bucks or less, then you should know that you are getting what you are paying for.

Of course, all is not lost. You can still own selected genuine handbags when stores go on clearance sales. Discount and inventory sales happen only once in a blue moon and when it does, ladies celebrate to the hilt. Just make sure that you're not buying a replica or an imitation--unless you know that's exactly what you are looking for.
