Fake Fashion: How To Spot A Fake Louis Vuitton Bag From The Real One!

20 Jul how-to-spot-a-fake-louis-vuitton-bag.WidePlayer

Fake fashion is a $450 billion dollar business. The bigger the brand name, the bigger the payoff for counterfeiters such as fake Louis Vuitton bags. Its signature series of canvas monogram bags is a prime target for knock-off artists and manufacturers. Many of these counterfeit Louis Vuitton bags are so convincing, they easily fool the average consumer. If you are in the market for the real deal, here’s how to make sure you’re not getting gypped.

  1. Step 1: The Price Is Wrong

    Louis Vuitton monogram canvas bags run from $375 and up, with the majority of the bags selling for over $1000. If you’re buying a brand new Louis Vuitton bag for less than $300, you’re not getting a deal, you’re getting a fake.

  2. Step 2: What’s In A Name?

    If there is an “LV” anywhere on the bag that is crooked or on a stitch or seam, it is not the real thing. The “LV” on a real Louis Vuitton purse will be carefully placed on the bag so that it’s not cut off by a seam or snap. Besides the famous initials being monogrammed onto the bag itself, the zipper pull and purse snaps will all be branded as well. The zipper pull should also be brass hardware and heavy to the touch. Many imitators pay attention to the details so make sure you’re paying even closer attention. If the seams are uneven or the monogram is the slightest bit off, it’s a fake. Louis Vuitton bags are all hand crafted and each one is perfectly assembled. Spend some time on the manufacturer’s website to study the details that make the bag authentic.

  3. Step 3: Material Matters

    The Louis Vuitton monogram bags are made of canvas but the handles and piping are natural cowhide leather. The color of the leather should be a light tan, with the edge dyed red and the stitching in yellow. After a few weeks of handling your bag, the leather handles will oxidize and fade to a darker brown. If your leather handles don’t change color, it’s a fake.

  4. Step 4: Location

    Louis Vuitton doesn’t have any authorized street resellers so resist these so called “deals” they are trying to sell you. Also be careful when buying bags online, although you can find authentic Louis Vuitton bags, there are also a plethora of fakes. Pay attention to the seller feedback and ask about buyer protection and the return policy. One website that is authorized to sell Louis Vuitton bags is www.eluxury.com.

  5. Step 5: Trust Your Gut

    When it comes down to it, go with your gut. If you feel funny about where or how much you’re paying, walk away. For more information about how to tell the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton bag, visit a Louis Vuitton retailer or call the headquarters at 212-758-8877

Jennifer Aniston started a hairstyle hysteria with “The Rachel”. Since then, millions of women have flocked to salons with her photo in hand. Straight or wavy, short or long, Jennifer Aniston’s famous tresses continue to set trends. Find out how Jen gets those golden sun-kissed locks. Learn how to create her free-flowing curls and and her sleek, sexy look.

You will need

 

* 1 blow dryer with diffuser

* 1 volumizing nousse (if your hair is fine)

* 1 curling iron

* 1 flat, paddle brush

* 1 blow dryer

* 1 comb

* 1 flat iron

* 1 shine serum

* 1 hairspray (optional)

 

1.

Step 1: The Color

 

Jennifer Aniston’s sun-kissed hair color is her signature statement; her style is quite simple. Golden highlights brighten her brunette hair, while beach blonde streaks frame her face. If your hair is a dark blonde to medium brown, you’ve got the perfect base for Jen’s color; simply add a few highlights or a gloss for shine. If yours is a medium brown or darker, you’ll need to lighten your base to a golden brown and then add blonde highlights on top of that.

2.

Step 2: Making Waves

 

To create Jennifer Aniston’s waves, you’ll need a blow dryer with a diffuser. If your hair is fine, apply volumizing mousse to your hair before blow drying. Using the diffuser, scrunch your hair from the roots to the ends. Hold the blow dryer in place for about five seconds, then remove. You should see waves beginning to form. Continue to work the diffuser through the hair moving toward the crown, until the hair is dry.

3.

Step 3: Defining The Curl

 

Jennifer Aniston’s hair is full of free-flowing curls. To get this look, use a curling iron with a barrel of an inch to two inches. Hold the curling iron at an angle. Starting about an inch from the ends of the hair, wrap the hair around the barrel, away from the face. Leaving the ends of the hair out of the barrel creates a more natural curl, not a tight ringlet.

4.

Step 4: Loosen Up

 

America’s favorite friend never looks like she’s trying too hard. Run your hands under your hair and gently tousle the hair at the root. Now you’ve got a look that’s California-chic, just like Jennifer Aniston.

5.

Step 5: Change It Up

 

What makes Jennifer Aniston’s long layered hair so great is its versatility. She easily transitions from tousled, wavy bed-head to sleek, straight and polished. To get Jen’s straight look, begin by blow drying your hair with a flat paddle brush. Hold the blow dryer at an angle above the brush, as you pull the hair down and away from your scalp. Do not bend the hair with the brush or curl it under, pull the hair straight down.

6.

Step 6: Check Your Layers

 

When you’re going for a sleek, polished look, you can’t afford split ends or stray hairs. Jennifer Aniston keeps her face framing layers on the A-list with regular trims. Keep your layers clean with trims every two to three months.

7.

Step 7: Flat Iron Finish

 

Flat iron your hair section by section. Run a comb through your hair, following with the flat iron. This will rid your hair of any knots that could catch in the straightener and damage your hair.

8.

Step 8: Shine & Hold

 

Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston have stylists who know how to perfect hair with products. Here are two great tricks. Place a bit of shine serum or spray on your hands, then run your palms over the ends of your hair for a brilliant, smooth finish. Then calm any flyaway hairs with this trick – coat your hands well with hairspray, and press down the flyaway hairs. You’ll have sleek hair without stiffness.

Spring Fashion Lookbook: How To Style Yourself For Spring 2011

9 May Spring-Trends-2011-203949

Ballet-Inspired Dresses

Pretend you’re a Black Swan—or a white or even ecru one—in a flowing arabesque-ready gown like those shown on the Chloe runway. Need a slightly less ethereal (read: see-through) design? This one should do the double pique trick.Chiffon dress, See by Chloé, $520; visit net-a-porter.com for stores.

’70s Single-Sleeve Tops

Bring a little Studio 54 into your wardrobe (sans the Bianca Jagger white horse) with a flowy shoulder-baring blouse from Marc Jacobs. Pair one with an equally slouchy skirt for a disco goddess effect or add to slim-fitting jeans for a more millennial take.Polyester top, Halston Heritage, $245; net-a-porter.com.

Lace Skirts

Go seductive in lingerie-inspired black and white pieces like those seen at Nina Ricci. A full skirt with a lace overlay can sweetly sashay from office to cocktail hour—even without an accessory swap.Polyester skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs, $445.58; mytheresa.com.

Colorblock Dresses

Come on, get happy in a cheerful colorful dress like those from Prabal Gurung’s spring collection. Add patent sandals to a smile-inducing sheath for a full nod to the mod.Wool dress, H&M, $40; visit hm.com for store locations.

Denim Shirts

Y’all listen up: the jean shirt is no longer tied to the hokey western yoke. Try a loose denim tunic like Stella McCartney’s subtle design for spring. Or this simple shell silhouette looks equally chic with slim trousers or shorts in a bright print.Cotton top, Topshop, $60; topshop.com.

Striped Tunics

Sporty rugby stripes have never looked as girly as they did on the Isabel Marant runway for spring. A more muted version conjures a romantic boho vibe when layered over a floral skirt.Cotton tunic, United Bamboo, $138; lagarconne.com.

Boldly Printed Pieces

The secret to mixing eye-popping patterns? Choose graphic designs in the same color family a la Diane von Furstenberg. For a more conservative take on the trend, opt for a sleeveless sheath in a single oversize print.Silk dress, Ann Taylor, $158; anntaylor.com.

Embellished Leather Jackets

You don’t need a motorcycle to rock these leathers. Sparkling embellishment (like the studs on Burberry’s cropped runway version) add a feminine touch to tough biker cuts.Leather jacket, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, $560; net-a-porter.com.
