I've seen authentic vintage Chanels go for a $1k. Honestly, 700 is seriously breaking the bank, even from Fang imo. If you're that high, save a bit more and go vintage.

^^I agree. You can still get an authentic Chanel bag for $700, depending on the bag. I would not spend that much on a rep.

i'm also not paying $700 for reps no matter how good they are. the details might be very close to auth, but i still don't think it's worth it. and especially, If you really want to keep the bag for the rest of your life, i'd probably save up and buy authentic really.. well of course, the decision is yours.

Lexington, I have been tempted to spend about $400 on a bag from Fang (Mini Celine) but felt that was even too much. Especially for a bag I haven't heard any reviews about. I think Fang's $300 Chanels are really nice so $700 is definitely too much!

Hmmmm... Maybe it's cause I told her I wanted 1:1 quality which she only said she had in black and cobalt blue?
She said she didn't have the red in 1:1 quality..strange

she also told me 1:1 quality and we know there is only 1 mini chanel, the one in the imported section
dont trust her too much, depending who are you, she quotes different prices all the time.

Like the other ladies have mentioned just save & get auth. Look in consignment shops & on ebay & craigslist. I've bought 2 chanel bags off craigslist for dirt cheap & one in decades which is a consignment store here in la. Something will come up just save your money & keep looking.. Best of luck to you

I'm thinking of getting the Gucci diaper bag. Is Fang's Gucci as good as her LV and Chanel or should I just stick with Catty? TIA

That would explain why Fang's website lists no prices anywhere - I didn't even consider that

Fashionplus: I haven't had Catty disappoint me yet on either Prada, LV, Gucci (Bal is the exception!) and I've inspected the LV I recently received from her to the pictures on Fang's website and they were identical - I have a Neverfull Damier Ebene MM, an Azur zippy organizer and a makeup bag. My coworker got a Gucci hobo from her and she was extremely excited at how good it was. She owns a few authentic ones and it passed for her.

In general, unless it is a really bad pleather bag, gicci in general is good.
