Guys I bought [Bvlgari B Zero 1 Band ring](https://youtu.be/Z_hq7NKVPso) replica for $30 and compared it with the original Bvlgari ring and it is quite similar.😍
Anyone else here still waiting on the 21p Caramel bags from 187? Been nearly 6 months and I’m not sure I even want it anymore @[email protected]
hi girls, I found in my wechat contacts this name : CJstudioVIP
his moments were empty until August 27, when he began placing hermes birkin and kelly from symode factory
who is this?
I don't remember at all when I added it to my contacts.
I read here that symode does not produce bags anymore
I'm somewhat traumatized right now because I think I was outed by my brother (sort of unintentionally.) My family knows all about my rep, and my brother + dad like to make playful jabs at my reps. They don't bother me at all, and I think they're funny, but I've made it clear that when I go out I'm not going to announce to people that I have a rep and will just play it off as if it's auth if more questions are asked. (Like I'm not spending $200+ just to tell people it's fake, personally.)
Anyway, tonight was my first time wearing out a rep. I've been obsessed with the bag for years and saved up for the rep. We were at a nice dinner with a large group of family friends that we all know well. I was handing my bag off to my brother and was very delicate with it, because I really love it, and he mouthed "FAKE!" to me at the table. We were sitting at the very end but I was hoping no one else noticed. Another woman at the table commented a bit later about how she loved my bag and I thanked her. Turns out my mom said that she saw how my brother was mouthing "FAKE" to me multiple times that night and I got so upset.
I know my brother only intended for me to see/hear him and never wanted to embarrass me in front of other people, however it's always risky to do that stuff at a table with a big group. He honestly thought no one was looking, but that's kind of like talking crap about someone who's standing 10 feet from you– you really should know better. Plus I look like a dick because I'm playing it off like it's an authentic bag when I didn't realize she was seeing my brother mouthing these things.
I'm so upset right now because my family knows that I'm not trying to announce to everyone that they're replicas and now I look like a liar and an asshole pretending that my rep bag is real when they have seen my brother say it's fake.
Anyway, just had to rant about it because I was crying on the way home because I felt so embarrassed and mortified. I know my brother was just trying to get my goat and didn't intend for anyone else to see what he was doing, but I can't help but be frustrated. Anyone else have anything similar happen to them? I feel like I need some solidarity right now lol
Sorry that was really not cool from your brother and yea like someone else mentioned perhaps they though your brother was just messing with you saying fake. You should definitely have a conversation with him for next time.
Oh wow, that's super mean.
Glad you announce to everyone your bags are reps. This was literally my first one and I have other auths. I've told others that my bag is a rep, and don't have a problem with it. It's more just about being embarrassed in the moment. To assume I have family and life issues.... wow.
Don’t pay attention to this troll. I checked her profile and found several problematic comments. She is the one who needs to get off her high horse and go find a therapist, not you.
Thank you!! 💕
I’m so sorry! I’m angry for you! I would lose my mind if a sibling embarrassed me like that!!!
If it’s any consolation- if your rep is a high tier (heck even mid tier) rep, that lady probably thought your brother was just kidding around and it’s actually real. Because in my pre-rep ladies days, unless the bag was litchrally made of plastic and had “CUCCI” or “VOUIS LUITTON” written across it, I’d be thinking “that guys an idiot that’s clearly an authentic bag.”
Thank you!! I really am hoping this is the case, that she just thought he was messing around. This really helps thank you!
I guess I don’t understand what happened here. The person complimented your bag and you’re so sure that she knew it was fake? Or what?
I’m just not clear on the situation. I’m sorry you were upset, but why didn’t you tell your brother to knock it off if it bothered you?
Well at the time, I didn’t want to cause a scene especially since I didn’t think others saw. I didn’t want to draw more attention to it and figured he’d stop. He did it once at the beginning of the meal which I let go but then he did it again later and I gave him a look. I still didn’t realize that the other person was noticing the interaction.
My mom, who was talking to the woman, noticed that she was looking at this interaction between my brother and I where he was mouthing that it’s fake. After this, she did make a comment like “nice bag” but she was smiling and my mom is pretty sure that at this time she knew it was fake. So yes, the lady who complimented my bag 100% saw that my brother was mouthing to me how it was fake.
I probably should have told him to stop but I didn’t want to draw attention to it or start anything, in the hopes that no one noticed what he was doing.
Sorry it was unclear.
Ugh your brother is being a jerk. It’s one thing to joke and mess around in private but he did not need to do that in public. Does he know you cried all the way home? Joking is not supposed to shame or humiliate your family that isn’t a joke anymore at that point.
Ah thank you! Yes, he knew I was upset. I went straight to bed after and was still upset, i think he was giving me time to cool off. I think he did feel a little bad and he did apologize and realize he probably shouldn’t have done it. Still I think it’s just fresh. I’m also just particularly sensitive to things like this that make me come off in an embarrassing or bad light publicly. Hard for me to just let it go because I just keep wondering how much of a fraud that lady thinks I am.
I think it is reasonable to be sensitive about this. People in our family have access to very private information about us by virtue of living together. We all owe each other privacy and discretion given the information we have about our family members. If your brother picked his nose or doesn’t floss or did something else weird I highly doubt he’d want you discussing that loudly or quietly at the family dinner with friends.
I don’t think the joke was funny. I would not be happy with him “feeling a little bad” over something that made me cry and go to bed early and avoid his presence. You could ask him a few questions-
what was he trying to accomplish? Why did he think it was a good idea to call you out on your handbag in front of family friends? What was funny about that? Given your previous conversations about not telling people outside the family about reps what exactly was he trying to accomplish? Why does he enjoy making your nervous and afraid in front of others? Does holding that power of humiliation over you in public make him feel good?
I’m not trying to suggest that all of that were in his explicit planned goals for his prank but the questions might make him reflect in his behavior and feel uncomfortable himself… and perhaps he’d be more thoughtful in future.
I'm new to reps but if someone calls me out in public I would be proud of my bags. I'd ask them if they want the hook up wink-wink. You can try to have this attitude with your brother, be proud of what you got for yourself.
I am more upset with the situation because I come off as a liar. If someone somehow figured out it was a rep and came up and said something along those lines, then I’d for sure have this attitude. It’s just annoying when someone says “nice bag” and I play it off like it’s real not realizing she saw/heard my brother talking about how fake it is.
I understand that some are more open about reps than others, but for me I spend lots of $$$ on reps so they look real and I don’t have to explain how they’re not. Again, I’m not as embarrassed that it’s a rep, but more that I was talking as if it’s auth while unbeknownst to me she was seeing how my brother kept going on about how it was fake.
I asked a seller to see if they could track down a bag for me in a certain color, they found the bag but it’s not in my top two choices for the color. The price is also on the higher side, so I am going to think about it.
Do you feel obligated to purchase a bag after a seller tracks it down for you but is not in the right color?
Hmm I get how you feel about it. But a useful mantra I drill into my head is that I asked for that certain bag so I expect the seller to be able to quote me on that bag.
If they return to me with something else, I will just tell them ‘oh sorry but I am specifically looking for that colour/material/hardware combo. Since you can’t find any factory that makes it, we will leave it at that. I will contact you again if I need anything else. Thank you very much!’
This is a great way of responding. Thank you for sharing!
You are most welcomed! 😘
I’m just starting my rep journey and I’m wondering what is a safe amount of bags to purchase in one haul? I’m waiting for PSPs on two bags and I’m tempted to add a third, but I don’t want to press my luck with it possibly getting seized.
If you have your eye on a small accessory/wallet/scarf you can ask that they put it inside a bag. It should save on shipping as well.
That’s good to know! Thank you for the tip!
Obv it depends on which country you’re in but I typically play it safe with 2 bags per package or maybe $500 per package.
Thanks for the advice! I’m in the US and I’ve already spent $900 on the two bags, so I’ll take this as my sign to stop with this haul. I’m scared I’m developing an addiction! 😂😂
Ooooh if you dont mind my asking, which bags did you get??
I know some repladies go with ems for the cheaper shipping but I like to go with fedex because im impatient 😆
Also, depending on which seller you bought from they may do triangle shipping so its less suspicious when it gets to customs.
I went ham with the Chanel bags and ordered a Chanel 19 small in light beige (Xiao C) and a medium CF black small caviar w/ lghw (187 King). I probably should have tested the waters first before going for the dream bag, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed everything works out okay!
Both well reviewed bags! Good choices.
Oooh both bags and factories are very good choices! Im pretty sure the 187 bag will take a while tho, some repladies have waited months for psp’s because 187 kings are so in demand 😅
I’ve seen a lot of comments about people waiting for months. I’ve been working with nTS Fiona and she said she would have PSPs to me in 3-4 days. 😬😬
I got my reissue 226 187 king in black from NTS Fiona as well and it was in stock. Got mine 2 mos ago. Super happy with it.
I think you might get it within 3-4 days as I read that black is in stock now. Hope you'll get the PSP soon!
Doing a happy dance now! 🥰
Ooooh ill keep my fingers crossed for you to get ur psp’s and bags soon 🤞🤞
my prism bag from darcy came dented/damaged. wondering how she got such a great reputation in this group ?
That’s not really the fault of the seller. They can’t control what the shipping companies do to the package.
I disagree. The seller definitely could’ve ensured the packaging was secure and packed it such that it isn’t prone to denting. I would contact the seller with some photos and maybe they’ll credit you for a future purchase.
exactly. @avocadomctoast & honestly im so turned off by the fact i paid almost $400 for a damaged bag from darcy that i’ll just steer clear of her from now on. would be afraid to use a credit towards another bag :(
My [unbranded d*or twillies from AE ](https://a.aliexpress.com/_mrNdiyj) have arrived!!! Can’t wait to use them on my book tote
Ooh these are lovely! which ones did u get?
I got the “001” one as it matched my multicolour zodiac book tote ☺️
In the market for a new black work tote, deciding between the YSL tote in croc, or the LV Wild at Heart neverfull or the YSL large sac du jour.
If you mean the YSL Croc Calfskin Embossed Uptown Tote, it gets my vote!
I’ve been meaning to ask this for awhile. I bought this Chanel bag in Dublin for my 40th. [Chanel bag](https://i.imgur.com/8yFIHwf.jpg)I believe it was a limited edition and I literally have never seen it anywhere.
The shape and size are perfect but it’s starting to show it’s age. Has anyone seen it repped?
It’s the newer Mademoiselle bag. I have this woc in pink 😀 i haven’t seen it repped since it’s a limited edition. Sorry!
Thank you so much. I used google lens earlier and finally found the name!! Mystery solved but would love to find a rep!
Whoo hoo! Yes i love the design as well!
I just looked up the pink woc. It’s so beautiful!!!
Hi, i know you didn't ask but i still want to show my [peekaboo selleria](http://imgur.com/a/zOBv2DY) on brown color 😅😅😅😅😅 I was a little dissapointed its smaller than what i was expecting 🥲🥲🥲🥲
Yes, Nickloe! I was dying for a selleria Peekaboo with silver hardware specifically (most are gold) and I was going back and forth on the size. This one is the 23 cm and it is a nice small bag for my 5'4" frame.
[black Fendi Peekaboo](http://imgur.com/a/5W4Acmt)
That color is so nice! 🌚
Happy Saturday! I’m in the market for some shoes for the office. My dilemma is my wide feet. I just contacted a NTS for some Princetons. I hope they’re forgiving since they’re mules. Any suggestions besides these Princeton’s? Hate my fat feet.
If you search for comparisons between Orange Couch Gucci Brixtons and Fisherman's Brixtons, the pics of Fisherman's look wide, enough so that it's obviousto many commenters. Maybe those might work?
Thanks for the info! I will check those out.
I have the same problem!! A part of me thought maybe I should try men's shoes as they look wider? But really hope others have suggestions!
I just bought these
I usually don’t like this style, but I’m going to try it out. I usually wear lots of Vans, Converse, and Steve Maddens. Have a new position that requires I look like an adult. 😂
Are you me??? That’s my daily rotation too (plus the occasional flat). But these loafers are cute
Haha Great minds think alike! My shoe style has changed depending on the height of my boy toys and where I live. I lived in SF and moved across the Golden Gate Bridge, where everyone is a clone of each other in Patagonia jackets and tennies. The slip-on sneakers have a little more character and I can still walk everywhere. Why can’t there be comfy shoes that look edgy and professional and not have a heel. I don’t want to look cute…dammit! Lol I gotta figure out some looks with these slip-on sneakers
Some ideas, perhaps…
[Dr. Scholl’s](https://www.dsw.com/en/us/product/dr.-scholls-webster-wedge-loafer/463904) not edgy but I’ve got these in a micro suede and they’ve served me pretty well at work. Folks are surprised that they’re Dr. Scholl’s.
Impo at Macy’s which I’ve never heard of but they’re memory foam *Women's Baylis Memory Foam Loafer*
Edited to delete non working link
Ooh I like those! Thanks for the links.
Please let me know if they fit well/are comfortable!!
If they aren't comfortable and you can't return them, I used to wear sneakers on the way to work and then just change into my work appropriate shoes when I got into the office. I mean ultimately the goal is to find work appropriate shoes that are comfortable!
That’s a good idea. I’ll just wear flip flops into work and then change. Sounds like we’re having a conversation about going to the club and wearing sitting down shoes 😂
Hmm if they are really closing down, does it mean they will clear their stock? And it means sales for us? 😳
Honestly I’m confused about it, I asked Gary about it a while ago and he said he thinks it’s just a rumor
I hope they stay, I love my WOC from them.
Following. I love OF chanel bags. I’ve started to just buy what I want just in case. I really hope they don’t close down at the end of the year.
RIP to my wallet too but I’ll forever live with regret if they close down and I didn’t buy. My FOMO is full force rn. 😆
i have a feeling monogram denim /
the pleaty is coming back
Does anyone know what have happened with VAT in EU? I had to pay exactly 8€+10% in july for a couple of things from DHG. After that I’ve seen that AE includes VAT in the final price which is fantastic but a part of me distrust.
If it's anything like UK, I haven't had to pay any VAT from either Dhgate or TS purchases since the rules changed. I also haven't had any problems with AE which also now takes the VAT when you pay. I've had ~6 dhgate and TS Packages and ~15 AE packages in the past 18months
I guess it is similar... please tell us if the carrier or the postman charges you something else for your DHG packages, I hope not!
HUAHUI VS AUTHENTIC
I've spoken about my love of Huahui factory for most LV items in the past and I've been able to QC pretty well since I seem to buy at least one item of each new collection. I took photos of the 2 latest summer pieces I got from Huahui with their authentic counterparts here. [https://imgur.com/a/p6KIkgB](https://imgur.com/a/p6KIkgB)
Just like my review of the by the Pool MPA, I found that their copy of the exterior material with graining is pretty exact. The colour in my lemonade OTG is a bit muted compared to authentic, esp the yellow part, but I would not notice this if it wasn't right beside by authentic Kirigami. As far as the weight of the canvas/leather, the reps are always heavier than authentic and less stiff/springy (hard to describe but the feel is different when you squish them). Given that, many people would not realize that the thicker/heavier material is the rep as we tend to value heft in most leathers!
Who is your favorite seller for this factory if you don’t mind me asking?
I've ordered from Bank, Aaron and Gary. I mainly shop by price and also if I'm already doing a haul with one of them and will add it to save shipping! Most of the TS can access this factory!
Thank you for this review! I’m looking at Huahui factory for a speedy from the wild at heart collection.
Love this collection. I got the authentic neverfull!
The leather on the ysl logo on my nikki is peeling off ! Anyone have a trick for this? (Jundun factory)
Ugh how long did you have it for?
Maybe 5 /6 months !
Ugh. Is this the crinkled leather? What colour?
Yes crinkled leather - Black (medium)
Ugh I just bought this in the baby . I didn’t want t have to baby this bag ☹️
You are going to LOVE it !! Im thinking about getting the exact same one i used it every day ..
It’s sitting in my closet right now. I got the baby size. It’s gorgeous. I’m just worried about the peeling … maybe only the medium peels…
Maybe ! You can also try to condition it it might help..crossing fingers for you!
Thank you I’ll hope for the best.
Can you post a picture of it? I still cant picture it in my head how it looked like.
I will try to post one i never used imgur 😅
Same!!! I'm so bummed! Otherwise it's such a beautiful rep
It really is!! I'm thinking about getting the exact same one to replace it 😅
How long did you have it for? I just got a beige one in crinkled leather. That sucks
Probably 3 months or so...
Was it the smooth or crinkled leather?
Oh noooo that's so sadddd. I just ordered one 🥺
I just HAVE to share my happy find today. Although it isn’t rep related, my mono NF from OC is peeking in the back.
I have been ruined since my beloved Miss Dior Cherie (circa 2005) fragrance has been gone for quite some time now. I still have about 20ml left and use it SO sparingly for special occasions. It still smells fantastic even tho I know it’s probably not supposed to be used anymore due to its old age. Anyway!
I always browse the new fragrances and talk to my fave SAs and we got talking about how sad I’ve been trying to replace it. She quickly ran and came back with a sample for me and ALAS. One of the notes hit me and I got so dang excited! THIS WILL DO!!
[Lancôme La Vie eat Belle ](https://imgur.com/a/TEXlTxZ)
To make it even better, I put a squirt on in the vehicle last night before dinner and my husband quickly said “oh yum, that smells like our first date” 🥺🥺 which I’ve used my MDC for every big event we’ve had together. ♥️
Happy days!! Yay!
Fortunately a perfume addict just stumbled upon your post! Get “Rose Elixir” from Montale Paris - it smells exactly like Miss Dior Cherie and has way better parameters. I am actually wearing it today myself.😅
Oh my gosh, yessssss. I’m going to go find it online and snag it now! Thanks so much!
The La vie est Belle is a beautiful fragrance! I bought myself a bottle for Valentine’s Day!
I’m going to pick up a bottle for myself too!
I’m happy the SA suggested it and knew the type of scent I was after this go around!
Happy cake day!
Thank you! I got Reddit just to come on this sub, it’s crazy it has been two years already!
Just an FYI fragrance can last decades if stored properly (out of sunlight). So, enjoy your Cherie!
That’s great news! I’ve always kept it in a nice cool dark place just for that reason! Thank you ☺️
I have *such* bad luck with fragrances. The ones I love always get discontinued. I feel your pain. Glad you found something else you like though.
Oh no, that’s the worst. Which is your goto these days?
I’ve been using Burberry Brit Sheer. Hopefully it won’t be discontinued too soon.
I’m going to smell that next time! I love browsing scents ☺️
Those with the Gucci tights, yes or no? I *think* I want them lol.
I bought a super cheap pair off AliExpress (they were like £6) and I put a nail through them when I tried them on for the first time 😭
Do you have a link for the Gucci tights?
Oh man 😭😭😭. I’m soo sorry. Are you going to get another pair? How we’re you going to wear them?
For sure! They’re super sexy and cheap enough that if I can only wear them once it’s not the end of the world. They’re definitely going to be a date night staple for me. It was a fairly standard outfit, a burgundy dress and knee high black boots as imo they look best with just a little of the monogram showing on the thigh.
I’d be interested to know if the auths are less flimsy (imagine spending £85 on something only to ruin them immediately) but considering these are so cheap on Aliexpress you have to try them!
I will def do so! Thank you for this!!!!
I posted yesterday about the post office continuing to send me more boxes than I ordered… I got more today along with [this note](https://imgur.com/a/Vp76L1V) 😂
Omg that’s so sweet!
That is so cute!
Please help me decide between the Dior 30 Montaigne in [nude](https://images.app.goo.gl/TGpuKwEfM6K2fLQh6) or [brown](https://images.app.goo.gl/6MeXqMp47ceKwGXe6) pretty please 🙏
Which factory did you end up to pull the trigger? thanks
Thanks ladies!! Looks like nude it is!!! 🙈
I love the nude!!
My Gucci strawberry Zumi mini bag (don’t know which factory) appears to have darkened over the past couple of years. It went from a kind of ivory color to a beige. Has anyone else noticed theirs darkening?
I'm sorry to hear that! I know LV DA does often get yellowy (auth as well). Always loved that bag, though!
Any of you ventured into rep sneakers land? My husband wants Kobes but that sub seems intimidating.
I haven’t, but my husband has become obsessed 🤣
I dipped a toe in and then promptly pulled myself back out when I realized I don’t have the attention to detail needed to QC sneakers and make sure I don’t get robbed blind
Yeah that’s another issue, I have no idea what I’m looking at lol
Yes my son bought his Kobe’s from repsneaker’s and used an agent! The quality is amazing!
Just wanted to say I think it's pretty cute that you can bond over reps with your son!
Aww thank you 😊 it was actually him that got me into this rep game haha! He’s asking me to stop buying, he created a monster 👹 😂
Oh awesome! Is an agent different than a seller? Is it kind of a different process than here with TS?
From my understanding my son sends the links to the agent, then the agent buys the product which you pay for. The item gets sent to the agents warehouse, once it’s ready at the warehouse you pay for the delivery and then it’s sent to you. Hope that helps. Message me if you need any more help. It’s fairly easy once you know how x
Interesting, thank you! I am going to look into this!
You’re very welcome 😊 I know TS Anna, Fisherman, and Alisa all have Jordan’s etc, might be worth looking in their albums too! Although there is a price difference! My son paid 260 cyn :)
Good to know, thank you!
Edit: Holy moly that’s cheap!!!
Made my first order!!!! (Well actually 2 orders 10 minutes apart 😂😂)
I got this beauty. Versace La Medusa small
And this Fendi first bag everyone has been raving about with the gold chain
Sooooo excited to get some more pics, will definitely be asking for help reviewing them since these are my first reps from this sub!!!
What fabulous choices! Can’t wait to hear what you think! 💜🖤
let us know how the Fendi First bag turns out! :)
Stunning bags! I hope you love them!
The Medusa is 😍😍😍. I might have to get this one later on
They have so many beautiful colors, and the black one with gold is stunning... Hard decision not to pick the black 🖤
Ugh that La Medusa has been on my mind since I first saw it. The lavender is so pretty 😍 Please share pics when you get it!
Yesss will do!!
Congratulations on your first order! That La Medusa is so pretty, which seller did you order from?
Mr. Gary!!! He is so great! I am also obsessed with the color but wish I got it in the beginning of the summer 🥺
Thank you ☺️ i haven’t tried him yet but for this I might have to…
FYI, he's having a sale of 300CNY off all bags during the month of August.
Omg omg omg I'm sooooo excited for your review when they arrive!!
Me too!! Hopefully I do a good job on my first reviews. Forgive me if they suck 😂
Is there anyone here who purchased the Chanel WOC from the famous AE store ( Shop5434264 Store
https://a.aliexpress.com/_ufGANu ) that does the cardholder from the starter pack? How did you find the quality? I hunted down my parcel that Royalmail refused to deliver yesterday, unwrapped the cardholder and am totally in love. And here I was saying I didn’t like Chanel...
I bought a WOC from them and don't rate it. The inside zipper on the flap broke on the first pull and now it won't zip. The leather strip in the chain is also poor quality as the edges are fraying and they are the wrong colour.
Awh dang, I’m sorry to hear that :( but thank you for letting me know! You’ve saved me a lot of disappointment. I guess we can just stick to enjoying the SLGs from there ^^
I have a wallet and card case. Both great quality. I read a review on the woc. The leather looped through the chain was not so good.
Is that cardholder real leather?
Yes it is! I've heard the lambskin is better than the caviar from this store but I got caviar because I like it. The caviar was definitely dry but after conditioning it I didn't think it was worse than the actual Chanel caviar I felt at the Chanel boutique.
I haven't gotten the WOC, but i got the slim wallet phone case thing. I was super disappointed with the quality. My first purchase after finding this sub too, and I was SO excited to get it. Maybe mine was a one off, but it feels like there is cardboard in the middle, has glue bits all over and just feels super cheap overall. I will never use it :(
I cant speak on the WOC but just wanted to give my 2 cents on ordering something other than the cardholder from that store!
Based on reviews it seems like the shop is super hit or miss! Some WOCs arrived wonky, rusty, etc while others have gotten good bang for buck stuff 😅
I arrived to ban island without a return ticket to RepLand to save up more money to put into investments… and yet I want to swim off the island for a Chanel Mini Reissue. Seeing all these reviews and pictures of the reissue is so tempting!!
Soon you’ll be able to buy more because… DIVIDENDS.
Has anyone found reps for the lack of color hats or even dupes? I really want to try out their hats but they just seem unnecessarily pricey
Edit: or if they’re worth buying auth I would also love to know!!
I don't think the lack of color straw hats are worth buying. I've purchased the auth and they end up fraying and easily get bent out of shape....well, I mean, it is just straw afterall!!
But their wool hats have lasted me quite a while. They're good quality, brims aren't floppy and the wool hasn't pilled.
There's another brand called Will and Bear and their wool hats are of similar quality. They're ever so slightly cheaper but they often have sales so I get mine from there now.
I've purchased reps from AE before...terrible quality, hats are super thin and floppy and don't stay in shape.
Thank you for sharing, I thought that the reps might be bad quality but didn’t know about the straw hats!! I will check out Will and Bear, thanks🥰
My pochette metis finally came in from DHGate. Not perfect (alignment is a smidge off) but for $35 I loved it. Bad news: the first time I opened the clasp it BROKE. Going to ask for a refund or replacement but I'm so annoyed :(
This happened to me before, and they asked me to ship back the bag to china for a refund or replacement, which was going to cost me double the initial cost 😫
Hope you will be luckier with that.
I got a Love bracelet with glue and scratches everywhere and they wanted me to ship it back as well. That’s pretty much when I stopped buying random stuff like that
You can leave a bad review on their page. Along with a photo of the damage. Some sellers would contact you and ask you to take down the comment and they will refund you. And other sellers like the one i dealt with , didnt give a shit 😵💫 so it is a hit or miss!
Ugh that sucks. I've been pretty lucky at getting refunds or partial refunds without returning the bag but it really depends on the seller. I didn't get anything back on the worst DHG bag I bought.
Nooo how frustrating!!! I’m so sorry that happened to you :(
Thank you 💙
