It's gaining suppleness,repparttar leather trims are starting to age and patina, going that gorgeous golden honey color that indicates quality leather. The bag has a used and loved look about it without any ofrepparttar 135919 nasty signs of wear and tear that an inferior version will have.

And this is one ofrepparttar 135920 biggest reasons forrepparttar 135921 price being what it is.


Quality of build and quality of materials used.

Authentic designer handbags are built to last -- sometimes they'll last a lifetime and beyond, making it a family heirloom that's passed down from daughter to daughter.

It is very common for Hermes Birkin and Kelly bags to be in a family for decades -- being used and loved allrepparttar 135922 time.

Some ofrepparttar 135923 newer Louis Vuitton lines, such asrepparttar 135924 Suhali, can be expected to outlast just about anything else.

It'srepparttar 135925 quality ofrepparttar 135926 leather you see!

Another good reason for buying authentic and not a fake?


Yes -- you! You're important. You don't think so?

(Well, I think you are, even if no one else tells you so!)

You deserve something to be proud of, something that stands you out in a crowd and says "Hey -- Look at me, I've got taste AND class!" That's what an authentic designer handbag will shout for you -- no need for you to get a sore throat allrepparttar 135927 time.

I wonder what a fake shouts out about you?

Careful now - it might be rather rude!!!

Designer Handbags - SHould We Trust The Sales Assistants?

I believe that they refuse to allow this valuation to be recorded in any form in case it is wrong. Because they expect it to be wrong on occassion.

Too tall an idea to be believeable?

Well, how about if I told you about a lady I know who had a hilarious experience in an LV store.

She wasrepparttar lucky owner of a Gold Suhali bag. Now, these are rare, seriously rare. It'srepparttar 135918 type of bag that onlyrepparttar 135919 celebs get to own because of A) Price and B) Exclusivity! I cannot remember where she had got hers from -- but I do know it was without a doubt authentic!

She went into an LV store and proceeded to look around. She did notice what seemed to be a frosty reception fromrepparttar 135920 sales assistants but assumed it was directed somewhere else. Imagine her surprise when she discovered it was aimed at her. Both ofrepparttar 135921 sales assistants inrepparttar 135922 store thought she was a fugly lover -- because they believedrepparttar 135923 Gold Suhali was a fake! Not only didn't they know that one had been released, they didn't even know they'd be made inrepparttar 135924 first place!

And before you leap from your seat in defence ofrepparttar 135925 beleagured sales assistants with a shout of "Well, that 's not strange ifrepparttar 135926 bag is so rare!" let me temper this by saying thatrepparttar 135927 bag was rare inrepparttar 135928 same way asrepparttar 135929 Mona Lisa is rare. Rare -- but everyone knows about it!

Withrepparttar 135930 increase inrepparttar 135931 number of bags in a range andrepparttar 135932 number of ranges as well, it will always be an ever expanding job for LV and other designer labels to ensure all their staff are up to speed on allrepparttar 135933 bags available and their particular differences.

However much training they receive - they'll always be behindrepparttar 135934 times on one or two ranges or items at least. No amount of store training will be able to overcomerepparttar 135935 simple dynamics of time available for training v number of staff requiring training v people available to do training divided by time available across allrepparttar 135936 people required to be involved inrepparttar 135937 training.

Sadly, no one knows allrepparttar 135938 answers.

Now, if you're lucky enough to find a store assistant with whom you can strike up a "rapport" then you should be able to trust their answers more than most. If they don't knowrepparttar 135939 real answer, it's in their best interests to find out for you.

But should you trust an SA without question?

No, I don't think so. You should temper their answer with information that you glean from other sources as well, such as forums, chat groups of like minded designer lovers and from press and magazine articles.

Balance these sources of answers together -- and you'll always haverepparttar 135940 best answer possible -- and not a potential bad guess!
