Fashion and Style tips

If you’re not new to the luxury world, you know that handbags are the most coveted pieces. Also, they have higher chances of retaining their retail value over time. So, here are the best tips for scoring designer bags for way less.

Don’t get me wrong though. I love designer pieces whether bags or outfits. My favorite dress from R.G Kane is a vibe always. Also, a cute hoodie from Marc Jacobs is top of my wish list. I am a logo mania and about craftmanship, so yes, I love the hoodie. This will be linked below.

Saving on designer pieces has always been my way to shop them. I don’t like the prices of designer pieces because it way above my tax bracket. And the now with the recent price increases by Chanel, Louis Vuitton among other is quite discouraging. Don’t get me wrong, the price is justified due to the inflation, yet it makes them more unaffordable.

So, I had to figure out ways to get these designer pieces for cheaper. If you’d love to hear this tips, read on.

Tips for scoring designer bags for way less

Here are my tested and tried tips for scoring designer bags for way cheaper. Like I said, the focus is on designer bags is because of the value they retain. Check out my post on classic designer bags that are great investment pieces in 2024.

Shop sales

Sales is one of the best time to shop for designer bags. You can get designer handbags up to 70% off during the sales. So, if you have a wish list, buy items from this wish list when it goes on sale.

Typically brands that the List, Coach outlet, the outlet offers designer bags for huge sales. This could be during the summer sales, New year eve sales, Winter sales or blow out. One of the best ways to shop sales is to sign up for the newsletter of these websites. You will definitely be notified when these items go on sales or if there is a sale going on.

My first designer bag purchase is a Michael Kors Saffiano leather Jet set bag. It is a pastel pink bag that is super fun and chic. I shopped it from therealreal for about 70% off. That was steal along with my store credit. This brings me to the next point, shop pre-loved.

Pre-loved or second-hand stores.

It is easy to fall into the harms of fraud online. So, I will recommend you shop from Verified second hand designer brand stores. I have written a post on the best second hand designer online stores to shop.

There are so many brands online that claim to sell designer brands but sell counterfeits to shoppers. So, if you’re new to shopping designer brands, they may take advantage of you. I’d rather shop dupes vs counterfeits. Then I know I am shopping the lookalike and not a fake.

Shop from brands that take their time to authenticate this products before selling to you. Brands like therealreal, Fashionpile, Rebag, Farfetched pre-loved, Coach Pre-loved, Maison De Fashion or vintage among others. With the craze for vintage pieces this year, this is best time to shop pre-loved pieces.

Sadly, the prices have gone for pre-loved or vintage pieces. If you don’t know, vintage style is one of the 2024 fashion trends every IT girl is in on. Yet, if you’re patient, you will still get a good deal on your favorite vintage piece on the market.

Tips for scoring designer bags for way less in 2024

Avoid shopping Classic colors

Another of the best tips for scoring designer bags for way less is for going for less classic colors. Classic colors are neutral colors like black, white, grey and brown. Many will definitely gravitate to these neutral colors for bags. And you know the law of demand and its implication on prices.

Invariably vibrant colors are less sought and cheaper too. So, go for other chic colors asides the classic colors. Also check out my post on handbag colors that never go out of style for inspiration.

Authenticity is Key

It is easy to fall for the trap of counterfeits. This is because many designer brands especially the “IT” bags have counterfeits. And many of these counterfeits offer it at a low price range. So, you may assume it is a steal and later find out its fake.

How can tell authenticity of these bags? I highly recommend you go to an expert. Also, buy from brands that are verified and tried. When shopping for second hand designer bags, go to brands that does the authentication already as listed above.

If you are unable to do this but found a site like e-bay or Etsy that sells designers but doesn’t authenticate, you need this tips.

  1. Check for the serial numbers: That is what I look out for when shopping designer bags from a random site. DO you research online on where to see this serial numbers. If it is an instagram brand as for pictures or videos that capture this serial number
  2. Ask for extra pictures
  3. Pay attention to details: You may get Prado bag in place of Prada bag. Michael Kors or Michael Michael kors is the same brand but check the spelling.
  4. Be patient
  5. Don’t be deceived by the price: These brands that sell fakes wants you to buy from them using any gimmick. You many will say if the price is close to the retail price, then it is real. Darling, never the case. I saw a tory burch bag online for a price that seems reasonable for second hand but girl, it is was a counterfeit.

What is the difference between Designer inspired vs Counterfeits? This is a question that needs urgent answer. There are so many counterfeits of designer brands out there. It is literally stomach churning.

Sadly, many of these counterfeits dealers also overprice these pieces too. I love designer dupes don’t get me wrong. However, I detest counterfeits. Counterfeits parade itself like the real designer brand using their logos, trademark. Shortly put, counterfeits are copycats without a conscience.

Dupes on the other hand mimics the features of the designer brand without claiming to be the real designer. It doesn’t use their trademark or logos. However, you can tell that this piece is designer inspired or a designer lookalike from its features.

Instead of going for counterfeits, I would prefer going for either dupes or designer brands from second hand market. If you’ve not been shopping vintage designer pieces or pre-loved designers, what are you doing? I have shopped about four designer brands from the pre-loved designer markets. There are several second hand designer stores like therealreal, Rebag, Fashionphile among others.

One of my first designer dupe handbag is a louis Vuitton pochette accessoires. I got this bag during the craze of the girls for this bag. Thankfully, I am glad I got the dupe as I don’t reach for it anymore. Although, I would have loved to get the real designer during its hype. Who doesn’t get influenced? So lets dive into designer inspired vs counterfeits and which is the best.

Designer inspired: Definition or meaning

Designer inspired refers to products or items that draw inspiration from high-end designer brands. They don’t try to pose as the real thing. These items emulate the style, design, and aesthetic of the original designer pieces without claiming to be authentic or using any logos or trademarks of the real designer brand.

Designer inspired products are often a cheaper alternative for individuals who desire the look and feel of luxury without the high price tag or ethical concerns associated with counterfeits. This is more like luxury on a budget.

So, you get the look or feel of a designer brand. This may then inspire you to save and get the real designer brand. I highly recommend you shop for dupes for designer brands you’re not familiar with. For example, you may think you love Loewe puzzle bag due to its hype. The discontinuation of the puzzle bag has made it a most coveted piece in the market.

Many people are striving to get the original Loewe puzzle bag design unlike the re-introduced design. However, before you commit to such spend. You can get the dupe to see it functionality, and it will fit into your style. This may even help in your decision making whether to go ahead with the real designer bag or not.

Counterfeits: Definition or meaning?

Counterfeits refer to imitation or replica products that are made to look like and trick consumers into believing they are genuine, often infringing on the intellectual property rights of the original brand. Counterfeit goods are typically of lower quality and are produced without permission or authorization from the brand owner.

Counterfeits are illegal everywhere in the world. However, these brands that produce counterfeits are still able to slip through the cracks and laws. They pretend to offer consumers a more cheaper option of the same brand. Also, the quality is often really bad.

Which should you choose, designer inspired vs counterfeits ? Dupes always as it doesn’t pose to be designer. Also, it gives you a luxury look for less.

Why do buyers prefer to dupes to designers?

We all know that designer brands are quite expensive. Yet there are designer pieces that are mid-range and cheaper than most. These brands offer quality designer pieces at an affordable price for most.

Brands like Longchamp, Marc Jacobs, Coach etc, offer luxury pieces for under $300. So, you can still save up and shop luxury designer pieces on a budget. Why do consumers choose dupes over designer pieces?

Designers are luxury and not a necessity. So, buyers who love designer brands will choose the dupes instead. This will give them the look and feel without spending the high price tags.

Also, accessibility to designer pieces is slim. There are very few brands that carry designer pieces. My favorite is Maison de fashion UK which carries some of my favorite designer brands like Burberry, Marc jacob, Lavin etc.

Due to this accessibility issue and the many counterfeits, many just opt for dupes instead. There are so many scam brands that will sell you counterfeits as the designer pieces to shoppers that can’t tell the difference.

Designer inspired vs counterfeits, which is better?

You all know that I detest counterfeits. So, I will always be on the side of Designer inspired or lookalike. If you need the designer look without the price tag, I highly recommend dupes.

However, I will also recommend you get the designer pieces too. This is because they last longer and retain their retail value.

If you’re new to designer shopping , I will recommend you start with mid range designer brands like I earlier mentioned. However, if you love Versace or Christian Dior, you can start with perfumes, small leather goods like Wallets or bag charms, and scarves.

Now that we have concluded that dupes are better. And even better supporting the designer brand themselves. I will be linking some of my favorite designer dupes for you
