    Default Need advice on VL handbag my DW

    Hi everyone,

    My wife birthday is coming up soon. She has always wanted an VL handbag but it is just out of our budget. After married for 9 years, even though she was afraid to ask for it, but I think she'd love to get one. I don't know anything about handbags, and at what price range they are in, but willing to pay for it at whatever my wife wants.
    I am afraid to get one b/c heard so much about fake VL. I would like to get a really nice classic popular VL handbag for her. The reason I want "classic" one is because some handbags probably will be out of style in a couple of years, and we don't want that. At the same time, it has to be popular most women prefer, not oldie style made long ago.
    I don't know what are the typical popular handbag size or color, so looking for recommendation or suggestion, pictures, links, etc. I really want to surprise her as she deserves it.
    Any reliable website sell LV at good deals?
    Thank you in advance.

    If you're looking for a "deal", your best bet would be ebay or an online consignment shop. You will be looking at used bags, brand new ones won't be discounted much because they know they can get almost full price. Steer clear of any site that is claiming to offer brand new LV at discounted prices. They claim they are authentic, but they are always fakes. LV does not sell wholesale to anyone other than a few select department stores (e.g. Saks) where they have a mini LV boutique inside the store.

    You are more than welcome to post authentication questions in the authentication thread in this section.

    I also find it curious that you would say your wife wants what is most popular, but not a style that has been around for a long time. Some of the most popular styles are the classics. The Speedy is extremely popular.

    Thanks boysRsmelly! But I've heard too much about eBay sellers sold fake or gray market items, especially electronics. Not sure about handbags though.

    Hm...interesting, I've always bought used cars, but never thought about used handbags.
    Do ladies usually mind getting a secondhand LV bags?

    BTW, last night I came to this forum for the very first time, and I noticed Emibella.com's ad was top of the homepage. They are selling many brand new LV bags for over 50% off. I am looking at this bag:
    Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Batignolles for $390 (reg. $755).
    (Sorry cannot post link as I am new, must need 10 posts or more to post link).

    Is this place reliable?

    There are fakes on ebay, that's why I said you were more than welcome to post authentication questions in the LV authentication thread. As far as buying used, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Personally, I would be thrilled if my husband bought me a used LV. There are plenty out there for sale that are still in great condition. Plus I wouldn't feel like I need to baby the bag quite as much since it wouldn't be brand spanking new.

    The website you are asking about sells fakes. We have no control over the google ads that get displayed unfortunately.

    Glad for your quick response boysRsmelly.
    I almost pulled the trigger on a brand new Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy 30 for $455 (reg. $690) from Emibella.
    I'll read some more on the LV authentication thread. Thanks again.
