even though i agree it is a hell of a lot of money. .. i love bags and i didnt buy mine to impress others but because i know how this bag has been made and the history of it. i enjoy and appreciate that when i carry it. thats the reason i wouldnt be feeling comfortable carrying a replica. my point being: if its only for the shape i would want the bag, i rather carry a no name.
SO AGREE!
exactly what I wanna say.

how would you know whether it's a replica or the real one?
my friend told me that the way the real ones stand is different.

anyone knows?

I have a great black Birkin replica. I never used it so I am going to sell it. If anyone is interested. Let me know. I also have a authentic black LV pochette in the sold out multicolor rainbow. It comes with receipt, box, etc. Fendibender

I just ordered one of the Le Dix bags and one of the Gisele bags - should be here early next week. I'll let you know when I get them what I think.

As far as customer service goes, she gets an A++++++

if you check ebay (search "lush") - the seller is also the owner of the site - she stayed online w/me while I debated which color to get & was extremely helpful. you might even be able to get one of the bags for a lower price than at the website!!

I know it will start a "debate" - but I saw the gisele bag downtown last week - the small was $690 (US) and the large $$890 - while it's nice bag, and I do LOVE the pink lining and heart shaped hardware, I don't think it's anything extraordinary -

I don't believe it's the next Birkin (altho the design is really the same - if you want to talk copies, and knock-offs, do you REALLY believe the Gisele is an "original" design????)

My opinion is, if you like the look and design of the bag, then you should have it - if it means spending $100 on a "knock-off" (and I DON"T mean true counterfeit bags, which carry the company's name and logo that it is SUPPOSED to be!), then you should have it.

I do like the blue jean birkin, but I live in the "real world" where I am NOT going to spend $5000+ for a handbag!!!! I don't care HOW long it will last. I can buy a used car for less than that!!! But if I found a nice looking, well made "knock-off" bag (one W/O any designer's name on it), and the price was reasonable, I would probably buy it.

I like the Gisele - I almost spent $700+ on the smaller one - but I found the SAME color, and the SAME design at Lush - the only thing missing is the pink lining, and the heart shaped hardware - it was within my price range, so I got it.

Same w/the Le Dix bag - I like the look of the tassles and the braided handle w/detachable shoulder strap - Lush's bag is an almost EXACT look-a-like - and the colors are GORGEOUS!! So I got a lilac one - saved myself almost $1000, which I can use to feed and clothe my kids - pay the bills - or even take a weekend getaway (and I'll have a great looking bag to take along!!)

So what - yes, the Designer's spent hours designing and making the bags - and they are well rewarded with plenty of buyers and unsolicited publicity (how many time have you seen Demi or Gwyneth photographed w/Le Dix bags??) - but not everyone can afford $1000+ for a handbag!!! So those of us who don't make millions (or even hundreds of thousands), can still have the look - yes the quality will not be the same, and yes, it won't carry the "prestige" of a designer name - but at least we can carry a bag that we like to look at - I hate when I hear people say "If you can't afford the real thing, then you have no business buying one" - just because we "little folks" can't afford to drop $1000 - $5000 for a handbag, does that really make us less deserving of owning a bag whose colr, shape and style we like???

And again - I am talking about LOOK-A-LIKES - not COUNTERFEIT bags, which use the name and logos of the designer they are copying.
