Okay, Okay, I was (am) a newbie, but I really thought these were brand new authentic and I LOVED the pale vachetta. I had a bad feeling and sent to My Poupette who said that they were fake. I got my money returned. I hope I'm posting this in the right place, apologies if not. It's not an "authenticate this", so I didn't post there, again sorry if I offend anyone... I have an artist's eye, but the fakes are no match for me, I am only buying from LV and mypoupette resellers now.
