I found you on the web almost a year ago and after much replica site research decided to order bags from 3 different sites. My first shipment I just received was from Fabaa as I wanted to order from a place that had cheaper prices than the others and like you suggested I got something small, the Louis Vuitton Sunset Boulevard Vernis in black.
At first glance I was unhappy because there were bits of dried plastic and what looked like scratches but after I was able to pick off the plastic (probably left there from the manufacturing equipment) and a little soapy cloth seemed to wash off those scratches perfectly I am thrilled with this purchase. The only flaw is on the underside of the handle where 2 tiny stiches are uneven but this area falls on the top of the shoulder which cannot be seen while wearing anyways. I’ve been inside 3 official LV stores in Los Angeles to check out the original Vernis products before this purchase and I feel this replica is amazingly good, especially for their cheap prices. Anyways, I’ve put together a composite image of my pictures along with the actual purse image from the LV site. On the left is the actual Louis Vuitton purse in the Amarante color (obviously taken with perfect lighting indoors) and the two on the right are of the one I’ve received in black (taken outdoors hanging on white cardboard – a partly sunny day as you can see the blue sky reflected.) Let me know what your thoughts are and I am happy to send you my reviews on the next two companies I am awaiting replica purchases from if you are interested.
After I heard from Pam we had a brief correspondence, and she was kind enough to send me more details and more photos of her Louis Vuitton replica:
Here are some more detail pics I just took with indoor lighting only. Feel free to use any or all of them. It is a shiny bag so any odd colors are simply reflections. You can see the slight gold flaking that is reminiscent of the vernis line even though LV doesn’t make a vernis in black. Amarante is the closest color they make to black but at night one can’t tell the difference.”
I’m glad that you’re happy with your bag Pam, although I do have a few problems with Fabaa. I used to shop there a few months ago, but I found that the quality of their merchandise was steadily declining into knockoff handbags territory. Also, it’s fortunate that the poor stitching isn’t very visible – other bags can look even worse. The last few bags I bought from them were pretty cheap looking knockoff handbags, and the stitching in particular was a major problem.
Pam, I really appreciate you sending me such an in-depth review. Feel free to send me more, anytime!
