wow! lovely!! I'm not an expert, but from the looks of them, I'd say they were authentic. I usually have faith in the CLs I buy from NM and/or Saks...only if something looks off do I get them authenticated, and these look fine to me.
Thanks for your input! At first I had only heard of one story. But then I saw another TPF poster say that this happened to her at NM. Only then did I get a bit paranoid.
