Balenciaga Part-time Brown in RH Review

    After my less than favorable run with the Newbagfactory, I set out to find another seller that are selling Balenciaga bags. I was looking for a seller that has great customer services and great prices. I came across oobags and looked at the online store and liked what I saw. Pretty good prices and looks like they have great customer services. The only problem is trying to decide what color I want and in what style. After days of looking at pictures and also at what color bags I have in my small collection, I finally decided on the brown color in the part-time style. The color brown is very versatile and yet classic looking, which could look great in a causal outfit or a suit. I contact oobags and asked the seller a few questions to test out the seller's communication ability and how long did it take for the seller to contact me. I was very pleased in knowing that the seller was more than happy to answer any questions I might have and also helped me in deciding which color I want as well. The best thing I like was the price was 35% cheaper than Newbagfactory and the bag was in lambskin. On to the negative, the bag's quality is not as good as Newbagfactory, but looks still as good. The bag has a nice leather smell to it and looks very distress looking. It is not as soft as Newbagfactory or as thick (The leather is thinner.), but with continuous use, I'm sure it will soften up. The bag is a little shiny, but it could be fixed up with some apple care product. The size is the same as Newbagfactory. The only thing that bother me about the bag was the handle was a little off as you could see from the pictures, but I doubt anyone would notice it and for that price, I cannot complain. The bales doesn't dip down as you will also see in the picture. To me, the bales doesn't bother me because i won't be using the shoulder strap. I hope my review and pictures will give you an idea if this bag is right for you.

LV Epi Leather Speedy 30 in Fuchsia M59022 review

     The follow review is for the LV Epi Leather Speedy 30 in Fuchsia (M59022). I brought this bag from Joy and this is by far the best replica of all the bags I brought from Joy. I have not found any flaws at all except for one, which is very minor. The LV logo on the side of the bag is not imprinted deep enough. That’s about it. The color is gorgeous and the stitching and size of the bag looks great. There are two big compartments in the bag and it"s great for putting in you personal items, or cell phone, keys, small wallet, etc. This is a fun colorful bag that would spark or give a pop of color to any plain outfit. I love this bag so much. Please use the pictures I took as a reference. This would help you decide, if you wish to buy the LV Epi Leather Speedy 30 in Fuchsia.
