I'm thinking its gonna end w/no bids and maybe she'll relist it for less.
That was a really thorough list, and quick too !Ardiennet said:speedysteph, that one you are looking at appears to be real by all pics I see - plus the seller appears to be an ALVA and Poupette member but I don't go strictly on that - I go more by detailed pics and this looks like a good used AUTHENTIC one.
Wow, GREAT purchase !Ardiennet said:I'll see I can find my aol page that had pics on it of murakami bags which included mine. I actually never liked LV bags - thought they were too boring brown and for older women (over 50). Then in 2003 I saw the CB pink bags in the Boca Towne Center LV store and fell in love. I have the 3 cherry blossom items that I spoke of (the papillion, the porte tresor and the address book) and I have a real multicolore black pouchette. I spent time studying the original Murakami line to determine what was different from original bags vs. fakes. My black pouchette for instance - the real black multicolore bags all have NAVY BLUE LV's and symbols. Most fakes you see don't have navy blue on the bags. And if you do come across fakes that have navy blue, they never have the correct color taupe alcantara lining. The lining is always too dark or too light.
Today I'm awaiting the delivery of a Fendi Hologram Spy HOBO bag!
Yes, the limited edition cherry blossom porte monnaie plats are super cute ! Well, they all are, I really like that in the MC as well.Ardiennet said:Oops. I forgot that there were 2 coin wallets sold in the Cherry Blossom print. One was the Key Cles, and the other is an actual coin wallet. Just in case anyone was wondering!
Also, forgot to mention that I have seen trouville bag sold in black multicolor with the navy blue symbols but incorrect interior color.
Ayla, a sure fire way to know your getting an authentic black multicolor pouchette besides making sure the interior color is correct and that somewhere there are Navy symbols on it, is to look for one that is marked "Made in U.S.A." on it. I purchased mine in Indianapolis at the LV boutique in a Saks Fifth Avenue. It says made in usa on it. All fakes are marked with made in france - you will never see a faked marked USA.
