I know people on this forum really don't like talking about fake handbags, but I went to some replica websites and the bags look really real. In fact, the bags that people are authenticating on this forum and mypoupette look exactly like those websites. This makes me paranoid about getting a bag on eBay. If they just look at pictures to authenticate, and those "replica" sites look exactly like the real thing, how do I know I'm getting real? My mom declares that 99% of handbags from hongkong are fake...yet people here consistently buy from hongkong sellers. I'm confused. Did any of you go to the boutique to get it authenticated?
