Guide on How to Spot Authentic or Replica Designer Handbags

With so many varieties of handbags available in the market, it's really quite difficult to distinguish what is genuine or fake designer handbag. So you need to be smart enough in dealing with them. Here are some tips to help you easily spot an authentic or replica designer handbag.

Designer Handbag Tip #1: first the material of the handbag carefully. The quality of the material is one of the best ways to know if it's knock-off or not since most fake suppliers or manufacturers will always use secondary material for manufacturing replica designer handbags. It is therefore will give you a smart idea about the originality of these products.

Designer Handbag Tip #2:

Make sure that the handbag comes with attractive packaging. Since fake manufacturers or suppliers are not able to match those packaging of the original designer handbags, this can be a great tip to easily identify fake handbags. While the handbag itself may be hard to examine, its packaging can provide certain clues on whether it's a fake or not. Always be aware for its important small details such as labels, tags, authenticity cards and even dust boxes which will give you some hints in their real identities.

Try to look for its emblem tags. Emblem tags can be attached to the corner of the handbag, just inside the straps or maybe attached to its zipper. Authentic designer handbags will often have extra trademark or stitching which make them truly different from any knockoff handbags. This emblem tag includes the "Creed", a code of letters and numbers that specify its uniqueness to any other designer handbags and having any spaces on it will mean that the handbag is a fake.

Does it have an authenticity card? If it doesn't have and it's for sure it's a knockoff. Be sure to check it first before accepting the product or ask the seller why it’s not included with your purchase. This is very important to do since leading designer handbags will all have some form of identification or authenticity card that shows where the handbag was manufactured, and even might include a receipt of production.

Designer Handbag Tip #3:

Look closely at the logo designs. These are very difficult to imitate or copy completely, and many replica handbags simply use a variation of the original design. This can involve a slight color change, inconsistent printing, or upside down letters. Whatever the case may be, make sure you learn as much as possible about the original before you end up buying a copy or look-a-like.

With all these simple steps keeping in mind we can take a decision about the fakeness of the handbags and can save a lot of money.

Hollywood Dresses Make Glam Or Simply Modern Chic

Ah. The New Year is upon us - where did the time go? One more reason to celebrate with friends and loved ones, and one more reason to dress up and look fabulous. I'm sure you have all found your dresses already but I just passed by the store window of BCBG the other day. BCBG has always attracted me, there is something simple and ethereal about their dresses, and their cutting (for me at least, is superb).

Their dresses make you feel almost old hollywood glam or simply modern chic. I know they're rather simple, definitely something you've seen before, but talk about excellent draping! I don't know, there's something about them that makes me fall in love.

Love the velvet bodice of this dress!

This dress is actually much more beautiful in person.

Aughhh...I need to get this - look at that sleeve detail!

So simple, so lovely (especially the colour). Hm, I will advise you not to wear a headband that the model demonstrates...

Ok, kind of generic I know, princess cut blah blah blah. But the material! And a colour that would look great on all skin tones.

What are you doing for New Year's? &equally important, what will you be wearing?

Online Beauties Fashion Makeup

Lakme Lever, the beauty and wellness services business
of the country's biggest consumer goods company Hindustan Unilever (HUL) that runs Lakme
over 120 Lakme Salons across the country, has restructured its business model to take on aggressive competitors vying to capture the growing spends of Indian consumers on personal grooming.

Lakme Lever's hybrid business model – a handful of company-owned salons and over hundred franchisee run – will now be tweaked in favour of more company-owned salons, a top official said. There are so many beauties who are using lakme products.

The new business model will also involve launching another top-end variant, Lake Studio. The salon is also being geared to be a specialised retail point to market Lakme's personal care products.You can find so many beauties with makeup and had a glamourous look.

Lakme-Lever may also opt for a joint venture with a mall developer or a real estate major, once the new business model is in place.

In an exclusive interview with ET, Anil Chopra, CEO of Lakme-Lever said; "We are working on creating and nurturing a service mindset that will be tuned into the consumer's needs."

The move underscores the realisation in the organisation that a service-led business needs a service-led mindset, a move away from its product-driven mentality, that holds it in good stead while selling soaps and shampoos.You can find so many online fashion models using these products which might give them a good look.

"We are closely watching (the stores) catchment area with a focus on return on investment (ROI). Retail is essentially a real estate business. A lot of hard work that has gone into the complete brand transformation to ensure that the new services do not look like old wine in a new bottle," he adds. And even makeup price would have gone up.

Mr Chopra has a key role in the transformation of Lakme through its association with the online fashion event, Lakme Fashion Week. He joined Lakme Limited in 1974, when it was part of the Tata Group. The business was acquired by HUL (then HLL) in 1999.

Lakme-Lever has shut down a couple of company-owned Lakme Salons which will be re-launched as high-end specialised beauty centre, Lakme Studio. They made changes in their makeup so that they can do something good. The remaining lot of 118 Lakme Salons are also being refurbished. A tie-up with a JV partner could happen after a couple of months.

"Currently, we have not negotiated anything. After six months, as we go into another expansion model, we will look at partnerships with a real estate player or a mall developer, before that the initial infrastructure has to be in place. The core team is focusing on it (currently)." Analysts say the move could be an indication that HUL is keen to ensure higher contribution from the salon business to the company's sales and profits.

dressed downright cool with colours and scarves

Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you had a wonderful evening and a beautiful day! Were in good company with family and friends, wrapped up warm - or dressed downright cool! - with good food, wherever you are!

This spread instantly made me want to layer up with colours and scarves - I actually decided that I had too much black in my closet! Is that even possible? Love the fresh faces and the braided hair. What wonderful winter inspiration - take the look of fall and bring with you into winter, enough of the dull greys and the generic black. I can't believe I just said that.
