Here’s my little review on the Celine Box Bag Replica! After weeks of researching replicas and reading your blog, I decided to go with bagaholics. Seeing that previous review on another reader’s box bag seemed so promising, even though I picked out the little curved bottom flaw. Other than that the bag did really look good for a replica. I finally made the plunge on day to buy the box bag as it was now or never (our AUD is really terrible against the USD).
There’s already a review on the blog of the smooth leather Celine Box bag replica but today we’re going to see the one made of drummed leather. Surprisingly or not, the quality of the two bags is different.
This Celine replica review is very spot on and detailed. You’re going to find out both the good and the bad things about the packaging and the bag itself, so I think you should definitely check it out if you’re interested in buying this Celine Bag Replica as well.
At first I was anxious of paying with my credit card, etc. But my invoice came in a couple of hours later after placing my order and I paid it straight away. Came up to $544AUD (380USD), not as bad as I was expecting but still over that $500 budget that I was kinda setting for myself. I knew they used EMS and I’ve had excellent experiences with EMS before, so I was assured I was going to receive the bag quick and clean. And I did! Exactly 6 days later after paying for the bag, it was in my hands. I was extremely excited to open it up and to see it when I got home.
I opened it up, the box looked good, the packaging was decent, so the box survived at least. I opened it up, the dust bag was already incorrect, but that’s just me being picky. Quite frankly who cares, I should be happy that it CAME with a dust bag haha! Then I opened up the dust bag to see more packaging, it was good to see how well they packaged it, however the strap was already connected and wasn’t rolled up or anything.
My first initial thoughts was the smell.. (don’t want to offend anyone out there at all!!) it really did smell like “China” LOL. My next thoughts was how gorgeous this bag was, so minimal, so classy, so timeless. The goatskin was AMAZING I was VERY impressed. The bag looked near perfect on the outside! However my heart sank a little bit when I opened it up and the Celine logo wasn’t done as well. I’ll be providing high quality pictures for this post! I thought maybe I can live with this. So I put the bag down and went do things for a couple of hours.
I then came back and inspected the bag a little further. I was again, disappointed with the logo. Closer look, the C is a tiny bit bigger, the I is a tiny bit slanted and it was slightly chipped off as well. I guess because of the goat skin, but debatable I guess? Unfortunately after further inspection, I can see that the gold on the zipper half of it has already chipped off, and the biggest deal breaker for me was the Celine logo was NOT CENTERED! I know, I know, it’s a replica. But then I realised that maybe Celine Replica Bag weren’t for me. Which is fine, as Miss Eva Knox said, replicas aren’t for everyone. Each to their own. She’s right, and I’m one of them.
