Juicy Couture has became one of the most popular fashion icons there is. There’s very few women that wouldn’t love to have a Juicy Couture handbag. And, for that very reason, there’s lot’s of fake bags circulating around the market place.
If you’re dreaming of owning your own Juicy handbag, there are some simple tips that you can use to make sure that you’re purchasing an authentic purse. Here are a few really good tips from Handbags4Ever that can help you in making sure that you don’t get fooled by a fake or replica Juicy handbag.
An authentic Juicy Couture handbag will have an inside label that will be pink and say either “Made In China”, or “Made In The USA”. Since Liz Claiborne acquired Juicy Couture, most of the handbags are being made in China. So, don’t be discouraged just because the bag was made in China, it could still be an authentic piece.
Another thing to look for on the inside of the newer styles of Juicy Couture handbags is “Love G&P”. The older styles may say, “Love P&G”. Since P&G is the Procter and Gamble trademark, Juicy Couture had to change their mark from “P&G” to “G&P”.
If you’re shopping for your Juicy Couture handbag at an auction site such as Ebay, be careful about purchasing from a seller that is located overseas. It’s a really good idea to check out all of the Juicy bags that the seller has. If they have a large quantity of identical bags, it could be a good clue that they’re replicas or fakes.
There’s an old saying that if something is too good to be true, it probably is. And, this generally holds true with designer products that are priced way below their value. A Juicy Couture Pom Pom bag should start at around $250, the larger handbags and leather handbags will be priced higher. If you find one that is really cheap, it’s probably not an authentic Juicy handbag.
Make sure that you check all of the hardware on the handbag. Inspect the buckles, zippers and buttons carefully. Juicy Couture usually has a “J” shaped zipper pull and the buttons, or studs will generally have emblems that are either hearts or crowns.
The interior of a Juicy Couture handbag will vary from style to style. But, the design on the interior fabric should match the rest of the handbag. For instance, a Juicy Pink Princess handbag might be lined with a fabric that is decorated with crowns. The more expensive handbags, such as leather, will most likely have an elegant tan interior that will match the leather of the handbag.
