So I would never buy a hangbad unless it was from a reputable source. The actual store, eluxury, or a my poupette seller.
    why on EARTH would people think target would sell coach?? that's just plain silly. even if i went in the store and saw them advertising it i wouldn't believe it. target isn't a department store.. they're like a high end wal-mart. would you buy coach stuff at wal-mart if they claimed to have them?

    << Balenciaga do not allow their bags to be sold online! >>

    I know folks highly placed in retail who have discussed this subject with me before. B. may not allow their authorized retailers to sell online, but they cannot control what "gray marketers" do. For instance, Target occasionally sells salon hair products obtained from a liquidator, products that Target is not an authorized distributor of, but once those products make their way to the gray market (what do you think all those Power Sellers of NWT name brand merchandise are), it's out of the company's hands. They will always INSINUATE the products are fake because it hurts their cachet to have their products sold at places like Target (or Bluefly or any place that they haven't specifically contracted with), but it doesn't mean the products ARE fake.

    I've heard these rumors fly about with Bluefly and Sam's and Costco ...my guess is that someone returned a fake bag as a real one and the clerk put it back in the case. I do not believe for a minute that these retailers would knowingly sell fake goods. Plus, their returns policy is excellent. Bluefly takes back anything.

    About that ripoffreport, that site is a defamation suit waiting to happen. I believe very little of what I read there, it's mostly stupid, disgruntled people who are probably swindlers themselves.

    I recently purchased a part time at Bluefly, well sort of. I put the item in my shopping cart, but was hesistant to go ahead with the purchase. I called customer service to find out if they were an authorized dealer. The lady told me yes. She also told me there weren't any part time bags available, but there was one on hold (that happened to be the one in my cart).

    There were only 2 of the bags, plus it was still almost $1400.00 after tax, so I figured it had to be real, and I'd go forward with the sale because I had 90 days to decide.

    I called Balenciaga the next day, and they informed me Bluefly is NOT an authorized dealer, and then I read all the horror stories on the web.

    I called Bluefly to try and cancel the order. Normally they couldn't do such a thing, but my saving grace was I requested the purse be sent to an address other than my billing address, which held up the order.

    I'd much rather spend a little more money and know for sure that I have an authentic bag. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    that's the thing you have to know where to look for the serial numbers and always make sure you have a return policy and print it out. fake bags are the easiest to buy from vendors you have to be real careful

    Wow, I always thought that Bluefly was a sure thing all the time! And I've been looking at their Balenciaga section a lot lately, so this is a great tidbit, thank you.

    Yikes! This is news to me. But, I heard a long time ago Bluefly sold fake Fendi and Prada. But that was a few years ago. Balenciaga is available online at StyleDrops, Raefella and BrandsBoutique. Most of the stores I shop at sell Balenciaga BUT they are pre season styles and not the ordinary same style/several colors on one page type sites. They are discount sites that acquire older stock to resell online. I bought a Prada bag at Yoox once and it was fake! It was a small pouch with a drawstring closure. I won't buy much at Yoox anymore because of that problem.

    Thought I'd bump this because it has happened again. Apparently Bluefly does not always get their bags from Balenciaga, so whomever they got their shipment from sent them grade A replicas.

    How can they allow this to happen? So unacceptable. I would be furious if I bought a Balenciaga from them and it turned out to be fake. Do you know if this sort of thing has happened with any other designers?

    As a matter of fact, it did. With Gucci. This was recently, too. I know they have had a few other incidents over the years, but they recently had a huge Gucci stock and come to find out the bags were replicas. I don't trust BlueFly!

    I guess you cant trust anyone, even the LV store in Denmark sold fake LV bags 3 years ago, their shipment got stolen and replaced with fake ones!
    But blufly seems to have alot of problems with this!

    Wow, this is news to me. I would be pissed if I received a fake after shelling out so much money on what is to be a guaranteed authentic.
