Ladies and gents! I received an email from a reader of mine a while back and haven’t found the time to write a review of her bag until today. So she dropped $340 on this replica D&G Medium Dauphine Leather Sicily Bag from a seller on Instagram
This is the email she sent me.
My name is Jennifer. I am a total noob in this replica world. I recently forked out $340 for a knock-off Dolce & Gabbana Medium Dauphine Leather Sicily Bag from a seller on Instagram. But I am not sure about its quality. I mean the quality looks not so bad. As a complete stranger to designer bags, I thought of turning to experienced replica bag buyers for help. I’ve read several posts on your blog before, so I guess I could use your opinion if that’s not too much trouble.
The appearance of the bag looks identical. However, the most disturbing part of this replica D&G bag is that it doesn’t have “Sicily” written on the mirror pocket like the one on the D&G website does. Instead, it has a metal plate with the Dolce&Gabbana logo engraved on it. So I worry that someone may notice the difference and call it out in an instant when I open the flap and get something from inside. Some colleagues at my workplace carry Dolce & Gabbana bags, so I don’t know if I should take the risk and carry it to work. I tried to return this bag but the seller said it is not “quality issue” and they don’t accept this. So I’m kinda in a dilemma.
If you ever have the time, would you please view the pictures of this bag and tell me your opinion. Many thx!!
After I watched the photos of the bag Jennifer sent me, holy crap! This is not the quality of a $340 worth bag that I imagined. OK, so this is another rip-off. I hate to watch unscrupulous sellers capitalize on inexperienced first-time buyers. But due to asymmetric information, it is perfectly normal for first-time replica buyers to get ripped off. It’s part of the game in the economic world. So, Jennifer, if you’re reading this, I hope it will make you feel any better.
Replica D&G Bag Review
OK, replica D&G bags are not as common as LV and Chanel in the replica world. It’s a good choice if you don’t want to clash your bag with others. But to put it bluntly, this knock-off D&G bag is not worth $340. First and foremost, let’s see how its quality goes.
- Glazing: The glazing on this bag looks passable.
- Hardware: The hardware seems to be metal.
OK, the quality check is done! Let’s move on to its accuracy!
- Color & Flap:
So, Jennifer, this part is not a callout!
- Strap & Glazing:
- Stitching: To be fair, the stitching looks OK at first glance. But if you stare at the bag, those loose threads are the tell-tale sign of a fake. You’d better do something about it before carrying it.
So is this an amazing bag for less than $150? Yes! But this is not an eligible bag at this price point($340)! This replica D&G bag has standard replica quality(known as Triple-A quality). It usually uses ordinary sheepskin, cowhide, and other materials and can only ensure that the appearance is close to the authentic counterpart. The materials are soaring and affordable. So the price is usually no more than $150.
So, Jennifer, to answer your question: I think this fake D&G bag is overpriced. And if you have people who carry D&G bags around you,I wouldn’t suggest you carry the bag to your work place. But you can feel comfortable carrying it in other places because D&G bags are just not as commonly seen as Louis Vuitton or Gucci bags. The chance of getting called out is slim.
For first-time buyers, I strongly recommend you to read my replica bag quality guide in which I explain the quality and prices in detail. It can spare you from wasting your money.
As I mentioned in many of my other posts, if you ever want to dive into this replica world, make sure you do enough research before you take the plunge on a bag. Or you could stick with me and learn from my experience.
I hope everyone gets the bag worth the money! Stay well, guys!
