I think I did--it was either them or RueLaLa. But I had no reason to question authenticity. What about it is giving you pause?

I have also made several BV purchases from Gilt & RLL & would ask what
is giving you a reservation about the authenticity of the bag?

You can post it on the BV authenticate thread & others will chime in...

I guess it is what was written in the description

Comes with a dust bag and pocket mirror
This product was sourced for Gilt by a trusted independent supplier.


It does not read a BV dust bag, authenticity card, and who is this trusted independent supplier.

I got so excited because this is the color and the bag I was looking for and jumped on it without thinking. Now I am over thinking.

And The straps look really thick...

I don't believe Gilt would disclose their independent supplier to you.

Did you receive the BV dust bag & other items?

You very well may be over thinking this, but sure you want to know you have
an authentic bag

She should be arriving soon. I'll post pictures when she arrives. I will just feel foolish until she gets here.

Do you have it yet? When you do, have it authenticized for peace of mind. To me, the straps look normal for a Campana.

I have several bags from Gilt, all authentic. They will not tell you where they came from, could have been overstock from a department store, or an independent boutique that closed (think Shirise, still sad they closed).

I am moving this to the shopping sub-forum.

She was delivered today. All seemed fine, BV dust bag, authenticity number and little care instruction envelope just like my other bag, and mirror. She is a bit wrinkled at the base of the handles, smaller than I thought. I just think I will forfeit buying higher end bags from flash sales like Gilt. Somehow the excitement of her delivery was faded a bit. Can't get the photo posted because of the size limits, bot that's okay too.

How ever everything else is just fine.
