Hello! Looking for help to authentic this bag. I bought from someone on Mercari that didn't have a lot of sales, so I'm very nervous. It looks legit, but I'm worried about the hardware attaching the strap to the bag- just doesn't look exactly like the photos I find online, but the online photos don't all the look the same either. But what has me really worried is that there is a rivet on the strap and I can't seem to find that in any online photos. I'll attached photos here. Please help and let me know if you need more photos. I have three days in which to refute this purchase. Thanks!! (If I've posted this in the wrong place, I am so sorry but am new here and trying to figure this out.)
Hi! I’m mostly well versed in Falabellas and this is a different style. I would say if there’s any zippered pockets make sure they say YKK. Or try taking it to a department store to see if they know. I wish I could help you more.

Hello! I was hoping somebody could help me authenticate this bag? These are the only photos provided by the seller (I think I can message her again for additional photos if needed). Grateful for the help, thank you!

Hi! I would need a few more shots of the inside. My gut is telling me it’s not authentic based on a few things. But better pics of the date code and lining would help. Hopefully the seller is willing to take some more pictures for you. Hope that helps a little. I wish I could be more certain.

In comparing the chains to my Falabella they’re wrong. I’m pretty positive now that it’s a fake. The chains shouldn’t have spaces that large and round in between. I’d pass on this Falabella backpack. If you find anymore feel free to list them here and I’ll help you find an authentic one!

Hello,
I purchased this bag and it has metallic tag writing for the numbers, and a care tag on the inside, that I don't have on my Falabella tote. This is the Falabella mini, and I got it from the Italist. There is a loose string on the inside, and the dust bag was poorly sewn. The shaggy deer feels the same to my authentic however. The colours may be off in my photo due to LED lighting, sorry. The weight of the chains are heavy like my authentic also. I'm just not sure about the loose strings and dust bag that snagged pulling the bag out of it.

Hi! I have owned many Falabellas and currently have a couple minis and this one is definitely authentic. SM recently changed the date codes to black with the silver writing so nothing to be concerned about. As for the dust bag, sometimes they’re not made that well unfortunately. The stitching on the bag itself and lining are correct. I don’t think you have anything to worry about. I hope that helps!

Comments: Hi, can you please help me authenticate this one? Thinking of buying it as a birthday present for me, thanks
Hi! I’m more familiar with Falabellas but in looking at the pics, this appears authentic to me. The date code is correct font and fakes usually get that wrong. I’m pretty sure it’s authentic. Hope that helps and happy birthday!
