Back in the old, olden days of dudeiloveyou (anyone remember? Is this all coming back to you-- the $14.95 download she had called "How to buy an Authentic Balenciaga Bag" ? or some such?) She had a forum connected to this handbook and these were SOME serious Balenciaga gals.Wondering whatever happened to dudeiloveyou? That sure was a cool handbook and one of the first tools to help people not get ripped off on ebay. Would love to find out -- maybe she is here???

I remember her, too!!!

I never got her handbook either, but I remember that clearly!

Didn't she also sell the Chloe handbook as well, if I remember correctly?

Well she was pretty feisty but I think really knew her stuff (and you're right, she sold what she did at a premium!!). I once wrote her to ask something about Balenciaga, a while AFTER I had already paid the $14.95 for the downloaded handbook, and she wrote me back quite a nasty message about how that handbook had been out of print for such long time (all of a few months I think), how dare I try to take her copyrighted material, yada yada. Which I would never have done, it was more or less a question and a thank you for her LETTING me spend $14.95 on the Guide...Anyways, just wondered what might have become of her and the forum she ran??:woohoo:

I remember her also. I just saw her selling something on ebay recently and was surprised because she hasn't sold much for a while. I bought a couple of bags from her. Her site was called Love Tart and I used to go to it all the time before I saw this forum. I always loved her pictures.

gosh, she always had great stuff. I could never figure out how she always had the latest and greatest of everything. she must have been first on every wait list at every store.

She was great and I had only wonderful experiences with her but ...Does it not make you wonder why "she" took off? We have wonderful advice for free. Enough to educate us. Why Bother? I understand the service she provided but we have wonderful guidance from the ladies on the authenticate thread..:shrugs:
