In our quest to educate our MHH family about luxury handbags, we have had to also highlight how enormous the counterfeit industry really is. We bring you Part 8 of our #HauteMoneyMonday series on the dangers of shopping through unverified channels or via "boutiques" on social media.
The Gucci Guessing Olympics! Following the Louis Vuitton thread we released last week, some of our #MHHFamily members asked us to tackle the Gucci Gang! Your wish is our command... Gucci makes some phenomenal pieces and it would be painful to know you have bought a knockoff. Let the Gucci Games begin! #HauteMoneyMonday
We know our ladies love a bit of Louis in their lives, but as our Instagram expose revealed: one-fifth of all luxury items advertised for sale on Instagram boutiques are fake. To help bring out your inner detective, take a look at our 7 step guide so you know at first glance whether a Louis is fake or forever. Thanks to the ladies at Sabrina’s Closet for being our source this week.
One of MHH’s services involves the sourcing of pre-owned investment grade designer handbags for the #MHHGirl. Naturally, we want all of our buyers to feel confident with the authenticity of their purchases. We work with a dedicated team across the globe to ensure stunning handbags at competitive prices. When you think of replica designer handbags, Chanel handbags are probably the first to come to mind. There is no shortage when it comes to copies of Chanel's most iconic handbags. While some replicas are obvious to spot, some, are, well, a little trickier to call out.
What would Monday be without the weekly #HauteMoneyMonday series? A bore! We are back ladies! This week, let’s look at which brands we should consider when purchasing our investment grade bags. Last week, we looked at when the increasing appreciation of handbags began and some considerations to keep in mind when choosing investment-grade arm-candy. This week we continue the conversation. Ready? Set. Let's Go #MHHGirl!
