On many occasions we want to put our best foot forward and show the world that we look good and that we know what fashion is all about. However, with the rising cost of designer wear, many of us feel that we just cannot compete with people who have plenty to spend. However, in the world of accessories replica purses are made to such a high standard that they look like the real thing. Replica handbags are sometimes made under license too and this is the mass production side of designer houses so these should be checked out thoroughly.
Of course, there are many third-rate companies which copy too but the quality of these goods will be far below what is acceptable to most people. Tin like metal additions with sharp edges could indeed catch on clothing or jewelry. They will not last very long either and they will either rust or break off leaving the piece looking a little used to say the least.
Bad stitching with bits of cotton hanging off is another way to check the quality of a piece along with zip fasteners which are badly put in. Any of these should show the buyer if the piece has any level of quality or not. Further, if there is a design in the material make sure that it has been cut properly so that the design sits square and not askew. Although this may not be obvious close up, when viewed from some distance, the whole thing will look slightly off.
Street corner vendors are really not the best place to buy goods anyway but for designer accessories, this is surely not the place to purchase. Try instead to look online for great stores which have many different designs on offer. Some will even have popular models dating back a few years and since they will still be in use today, these make good buys.
These online stores also offer good value in that if the goods are not up to the level that is expected, they can be returned for a full refund. Try doing this to a street corner vendor and see what happens. Also, they usually have some kind of good deal on shipping costs too so look for the bargains and sale items if more money is to be saved.
Perhaps the best way to find a good supplier is to ask people who look like they have bought designer accessories themselves. Word of mouth is a great advertising tool which can assist those who are new to this game and prevent them from making a mistake. Indeed, finding out which is the best supplier from friends and family virtually guarantees that no costly errors are made.
Finally, even up and coming stars and celebrities are turning to this market to buy accessories since they often cannot afford the real thing. If it is good enough for them then surely the everyday woman should not feel bad about getting something that is a copy. Since copying is the highest form of flattery, then wear the accessory with panache.
