Parker's Comments:

Here are my 2 birkins. Honestly I was so impressed when I first got my black one I had to order another one! I got it from one of my fav sellers David (e2pop) They were about 228 incl shipping
Pictures do no justice for these babies. I get stopped all the time when I bring them out!


Here is my Celine phantom purchased from David (e2pop).
I was actually shocked in the quality of this bag. The leather felt just like it did when I saw the authentic in Nordstrom!

Dislikes: PRICE!! I think I paid about 350$ for this. I wanted the phantom so bad that I just went ahead and purchased it. But honestly I'm really glad i did because the quality was superb!!

This is one of my long time companions my neverfull gm! I purchased this bag from joy over 3 years ago and as you can see her bags def patina over time. This is a natural patina(I never been a fan of accelearting the patina because it doesn't look the same shade as the reg natural patinan IMO). But anyway here she is. Soon she will be retired but I do love her so much! Lol!!!!!

This is one of my favorite bags! My Gucci blondie! I'm not a huge fan of Gucci but I love this style. This was one of my first replicas. Purchased off ioffer back in 2008! I still have it and use it to this day.

My Latest Purchase from Joy of FabAAA

4/3/13 UPDATE: The green Balenciaga and the Louis Vuitton Vernis Brea GM are both out of stock. I have made some changes to the order. You can read the update here:


Here I go again LOL. I just completed another purchase from Joy of FabAAA. Maja got me started on Balenciaga and now I want every color LOL. I was going to get 5 at first but thought I'd hold off to see the quality first. I went with the lower price point.

And even though I am not into the multicolor line I thought I'd take a chance to see if it will grow on me. I liked the shape and size of the Annie MM so got that and some accessories to go with it.

And I have been wanting to try Joys Vernis Line so had to add that to my haul LOL.

So here's everything I got. Pictures below with prices.

Total before shipping was $650.00, shipping was $135.00 OUCH!!! But I did get a 5% discount using which amounted to $32.50 so I ended up paying a total of $752.50.


Love the purple color. Perfect for Spring and Summer. Price $128.00

This will be my first bag in Green. The leather looks great! Price $115.00

I'm taking a chance on this one since I'm not a fan of the multicolor line so we'll see. Price $115.00

I already have this cosmetic bag in Monogram, Damier Ebene and Damier Azure so I already know I love the bag though I wish it was a little bigger. Price $45.00

 I picked this wallet cause the interior looks closest to the interior of the Annie. Price $62.00

I've had this one on my wish list since it was first posted on Joy's site. Plus I've been wanting to see the quality of  her Vernis line so I can't wait to see it! Price $129.00

Sorry but Joy did not have a picture for the Vernis Wallet. Only a thumbnail was available. Price $56.00

I wanted to give you some insight on my Louis Vuitton Helene wallet that I ordered from simpleaaa. Here are the photos. I must say, the wallet was terrible. There were two different stitching brown thread colors on the wallet.  The coin case inside the wallet was slanted and I had to crease it by laying books on top of it to straighten it out.
I paid 70 usd for it, including shipping. The wallet was made in 2011.  The material wasn't the same material as Joy's monogram material.  For example, Joy's monogram zippy wallet was right on compared to my authentic LV monogram bag. This one was a bit cheaper looking.  Overall, you won't be able to tell the flaws in public though, only when compared to the authentic.
I chose this seller because they used paypal as a payment method.  Shipping took about 2 weeks. 
Overall, I'd rate the wallet as a 7/10.
I however won't buy from the seller again, and stick with Joy.
