To anyone who can help. I'm new to purses.


Oct 10, 2008
Ok so I got this purse & I have no clue what it is. Sad I know, but Im new to purses. It's real leather for starters. Anyone who looks at it says it has to be a designer but I think I seen this kind of design in local stores, I don't know if it's store brand or designer. It opens and closes with a magnetic clip and same with the pouch in the back. Here are some photos of the purse.

If anyone knows what this purse is please reply to this thread.

Yes, very bad imitation Coach. I hope you are able to take it back, and I am truly sorry that you were taken in this way. It is an unfortunate thing that we can longer know who to trust when buying something as simple as a handbag. If it was given to you, I don't know that I'd confront the person about it, but try to gently educate them... and if you need to know why they need educating, do a search here in the forum for 'fake handbags' and you'll find lots of good reason why we don't buy fake or counterfeit bags.

If you really like this bag, I can only suggest trying to get the real thing - you certainly deserve better - the style 'they' were imitating is no longer available, but if you check on eBay, I think the closest bag would be a Coach Chelsea Flap bag. I just checked, and there are a number of them available - make sure the seller has 100% positive feedback or darn close to it - and if you find something you like but want to make sure it's the real deal, you can 'authenticate' it in the Coach forum.

As you get more familiar with this forum and with what to look for, this will not happen to you again.

And WELCOME!!! As you can see, we're here to help! And cry with you, if necessary.:tup:
