  1. Reading this thread makes me so nervous. I literally just put a Blush Nude Chloe Marcie on layaway last night for a pretty penny. I will definitely be getting the bag authenticated after I receive it. I would die if I spent almost $1000 for a fake Marcie. Send me good vibes!

  2. I also received a re-dyed bag. The listing made no mentions of that. How could their authenticators be trusted to authenticate if they can’t see dye all over the hardware?? Customer services was quite responsive though.

  3. Thank goodness for their generous return policy! I'm just going to hope and pray my Marcie is as perfect as the pictures showed, get it authenticated and hope I don't need to return it. I'd rather finish paying and return for a full refund then cancel the hold and give them almost $100 for nothing lol

  4. Thank you for bringing this up. I buy from them now and then, it always have been good and authentic (I know my brands) until recently.
    Over last 5 days I was eyeing two identical Celine Belt bags in Plum. One is brand new, looked perfect and was sold in no time, second one was sold two days later. The problem is second one looked funky (uneven stitches at the bottom, leather at one corner is almost untacked and about to pop out, imprint is worn out). Also it was called "Burgundy" by stuff but there was no such color in 2017, code is identical to Plum, but color itself is kinda off, so they invented "burgundy" and sold it as such? I thought I'm getting paranoid. Now I see.

  5. Totally agree!!
  6. I have bought and sold many things through Fashionphile and have not had any issues. I mostly visit their main HQ in person to either sell bags that don’t spark joy anymore or look at stuff I’m interested in. I have never had any trouble, they have a great return policy that I have used a few times. The ReaReal I have had trouble with and I shop with extreme caution due to their “returns not accepted” policy. I’m sorry you all are having so many issues with Fashionphile, everyone I have had contact with at the HQ has been really sweet and they all seem to have real a passion for the merchandise. :heart:

  7. Hello xiaoxiao- due to the error they made when purchasing my supposedly Kelly 32, which turned out to actually be 35, I needed replacement tags for the box and the bag tag in case I ever decided to sell it. I went through several months process to get these tags. I had called Fashionphile and they said that their authenticators price the bag based on it being a 35, so they knew it was a 35. And I had already sent photos next to the 32 that I also bought from them, to show that I got a 35 instead of a 32. However, they told me I would actually have to send the bag back to them to prove it was a 35 if I wanted new tags. I told them no way because I didn’t know what would happen to the bag in the meantime, and then I am out the money, as it is now months later. Finally we came to a middle ground and I took even more photos next to a measuring tape. I should post this as an update on that Hermès thread.

    However, I am really enjoying the bag. The leather is amazing!

    I got my blush nude Marcie from Fashionphile last week and thankfully it is perfect. It was not listed as having the auth card which I found concerning, but to my pleasant suprise the auth card was in the Chloe dust bag.

    Because of their generous return policy I would order from them again. I will definitely use caution and get items privately authenticated though! Even pre-owned designer items cost a pretty penny!

  9. That's exactly the problem.
    The number of recent mistakes is concerning.
    - Wrong size of Hermes (!!!) like in Gettinpurseonal's post.
    - Wrong (non-existent) color for Celine (listing removed)
    - Wrong leather listed (Marcie is not in calfskin, it's lambskin)
    - Fake Chloe Paddy's from OP.

    I agree, FP used to be great. But it's obvious the team has changed now.

  11. I haven’t been on this blog for a few years. I purchased a Chanel bottle bag from them two years ago which I must have authenticated after reading all this.
    I am looking to purchase a Bottega Venetta Cabat A Chanel plexiglass Strauss no 5 minaudière And an acrylic box clutch - it was in searching for reviews that I cam across this thread...of course now I have cold feet!!! Can anyone recommend a good authenticator so I can have them checked if I do go ahead with the purchases? Thanks

    your claim this bag is fake has been disapproved by a Dior authenticator here in TPF.
    Check Averagejoe reply in thread #2878 and thisVNchick. Please be careful before you claim the bag is fake.

  13. I stand by what I said. No their labels haven't been 100% consistent throughout their entire history, there are some tags that just say "Dior" but they have never used helvetica font for "PARIS". That's a tip off that a counterfeiter couldn't find the proper font for that section, and just went with something they thought was similar.
  14. I find it interesting that you joined TPF on April 26 and came here first putting your trust in TPF's Balenciaga authenticators then spending your subsequent 8 posts to disparaging the forum's authenticators as well as a long time seller.

    (Note that I'm not denying that Fashionphile has made mistakes over the years. That's not the issue here.)

    In this post you admit to not being "an authority on Dior" and that your "expertise" is based on owning "a lot of Dior bags spanning many years." It's people like you who are dangerous to both sellers and (if you sell) to buyers. They own a few items of a brand and consider themselves expert. They think they know the "always/never" (non) rules and can't accept that changes have been made over the years and that their knowledge may not be complete.
  15. I am so happy to see your post because that's exactly what happened to me. I just hung up with one of the Fashionphile customer service representative telling her that I was returning the Chanel bag because it was fake. I previously owned the same bag that I ordered from them but in a different color so I know what the real thing looks like and I compared it to their bag and there were many inconsistencies. To top it all off she's telling me that I will be charged a 10% Reserve in other words $140 and I said that I would be disputing the charge because I was not going to be penalized for returning a fake bag. So they are aware that I'm going to fight the charge which is completely absurd. I will definitely will not buy anything from them again. Thanks for your post.
