    personally i wudnt trust ebay, if the bid goes higher than 100 then I wud advise jus pay the full whack for a real one from an authorised dealer. Then at least u are guranteed it is genuine and have warranty etc.

    I have a gucci wallet and LV wallet, bit expensive, but u pay for quality i guess

    I don't personally see the appeal.

    If I like teh way something looks, I can spend a lot on it. But if I don't, then no matter what the label is I won't even fish out a pound.

    are u sure?! i doubt it very much. although one person made a reasonable point if ur gonna pay that much u may as well pay the whole thing and get a real one! it wont be too much more cos thats an oldish style i.e not the brand new ones that can cost thousands!
    its so worth getting a real one, i had a fake LV purse and its shocking......then i got a real one for my 18th and its amazing! so beautiful and the quality is perfection. its so exciting too cos they wrap them up in such a great way and u get the felt bag to keep it protected in....go for LV instead of gucci!! i want want a new bag now!

    glitters right, it is cheap, its far too commercialised now therefore the mass production has reduced the quality dramatically, i had a pair of gucci shoes for christmas about three years ago, they lasted me till april and then the sole started coming off, with brands like this u are clearly paying for the name and nothing more

    i completely agree.you are paying mostly for the name gucci .imagine what the price would be of that very same bag if it had the name 'woolworths' on it! sometimes cheap stuff lasts better in the long run.

    totally agree, because its not made for fashion purposes its made for durability

    so are a lot of the designer things! but how can something be made for durabiltiy if its so cheap....take for example the shop New Look, while im not saying its a crap store- do not take offense if u shop there.....but the stuff there is cheap and u get what u pay for. stuff falls apart with a few wears. i used to shop there back in the day (year 7/8) and clothes just didnt last.

    now altough to a certain extent yes ur paying for the label, but with that u get a bag or watch etc for life! my mate has about 3 LV bags and the oldest one is in a simialr condiditon to the newest one (despite some areas of leather getting darker, but its supposed to do that) showing that despite it getting a hammering on many drunken nights out the quality is so good it'll last for years. u dont get that from a new look or primark bag!

    sorry hun but youve been conned... that bag is definately fake. you can tell from the close ups... and from seeing the other items they have sold in the past (ie... theres some belts with nasty shiny buckles, gucci wouldnt put their name to those). £90 is a hell of a lot for a fake. a fiver - yeah, might be worth it for a bit of posing (though people will see its not real)... but £90 eeek!

    Ok Youve asked the handbag Queen!

    The bag while it looks similar to the line from last season its not. I have never sever seen Gucci put Made in Italy right under the lable on the FRONT as well as the Gucci running diagonal, witht hese bags, the lable was on the inside and it was leather. As well as on this line of bags, there was no gold plate on the front. The material is also the wrong type as well as the print is too large, the stitching and grain is also wrong. Also with these bags Gucci used a gold zip. Its a Bali Brand Gucci, if you understand that term. .

    Take a look at the two pictures. The top row is from a genuine the bottom is your e-bay one.

    I dont have a Gucci handbag myself, im not very partial to it, im not a massive Versace fan either.. anyway, I know what you guys mean, I bought a Louis Vuitton murakami bag right, then there came out all these fake ones, then it made mine look tacky, it was horrible. I still have my pink Dior handbag that ive had for ages and its still fantastic. I have way to many . But the reason I buy them is becuase I like the way they are made and they are very individual pieces.

    Well buying it from Gucci is the obvious answer. Thats really the only place you can be sure to get then other than buying them online. If bying online buy it from Gucci direct, Im not sure if this is possible, its been a few months since ive been on their site.

    I have one authentic Gucci, and one authentic Louis Vuitton... And that's my quota of "splurge" for this year

    I just think whether they're real or not is ruining the whole concept.. The fakes are very, very good and no one but a trained eye can tell the difference.

    Ruins the idea of having a sophisticated designer bag when you have to justify it every 5 minutes.

    "That real Gucci? Good 'un innit Bruv?" :rolleyes:

    Never buy designer sunglasses either... Spent a vast quantity on a pair last summer and couldn't eat for 3 weeks Anyway, left them on a bus after a month never to be seen again...

    Oh, the emotional scarring..
