Don't be a victim of FAKE JUiCY COUTURE! Even if a seller states it's Authentic, you should *still* do research before bidding/buying. Just because you see that they're a Powerseller, doesn't mean anything either. I take pride in my Powerseller status but others do not. They just see it as a way to make a quick buck. Always check feedback from previous buyers. Sometimes, even someone who gives a positive rating doesn't know that they're bag is fake so feedback isn't a final way to decide if whether or not you should buy a bag from a particular seller. Always ask questions and request to see detailed pictures. If all you see is a stock photo, DON'T BUY iT. If a seller states it will take 10-14 days for your item to be delivered, it's probably because they're selling a fake bag that is being dropshipped from a company in China that makes fake bags. If a seller is from HONG KONG/CHiNA and tells you there's "a variety in colors" available in a certain style, DON'T BUY iT. Authentic Juicy bags will state "Made in the Glamourous USA *but* if you look on the back of the tag, it states "Made in China", this does not automatically mean it is fake. A honest seller who has nothing to hide will be more than willing to answer your questions in a timely manner without getting an attitude or being sarcastic about it. If you don't receive answer within 2-3 days, don't bother to bid/buy because they're more than likely just ignoring you. Below are some pics of fake Juicy and also some pics of real Juicy (which are personally mine from "bowler" style handbag).
BUT KEEP iN MiND JUICY ALSO MAKES OTHER BAGS iN DiFFERENT STYLES THAT ARE UNLiKE THE DAYDREAMERS (such as their leather series) BUT STiLL HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF iNTRiCATE DETAiLS THAT MAKE A JUiCY BAG SO BEAUTiFUL! iF YOU NEED HELP DETERMiNiNG THE AUTHENTiCiTY OF A NON-DAYDREAMER/BOWLER STYLE HANDBAG, LET ME KNOW.
First off, JUiCY COUTURE DOES NOT MAKE ZiPPERED COMPARTMENTS iN THEiR HANDBAGS!!! The pic below is of a fake Juicy bag. If you see a seller who has a pic of a zippered compartment in their bag, it's not real. Also, the inside interior of Juicy Couture bags are ALWAYS TAN with a logo print that is ALWAYS BLACK, RED, NAVY BLUE or PiNK. The logo print color is dependent on the color of the bag. If a bag has red trim on the outside, the print inside may be red or black. Also, the "Hello?" and "Shop!" pockets are usually always GOLD or SiLVER and are puffy/thick looking. The pic below of the fake bag shows a gold pocket but it is not puffy/thick looking. The "Shop!" and "Hello!" print in an Authentic bag will be in a coordinating color that is usually pink or black. In a fake Juicy bag, the print will be red. If you see a bag that has "Hello?" where it should say "Shop!", it's fake. The "Hello?" pocket is always cell phone sized and the "Shop!" pocket is always the larger pocket. THE iNSiDE POCKETS ARE NEVER COMPLETELY COVERED iN THE Juicy logo print. Juicy is starting to put the "Hello?" pocket on the side for newer styles. The "J" zipper pull should also be thick and roundish, not flat and flimsy. All Juicy Couture hardware is very thick and sturdy. Never cheap looking quality. JUiCY ALWAYS USES COORDiNATiNG COLORS!
Always ask to see the back of a Juicy Couture bag because it is the main way to determine if it's real or not. The "J" heart emblem on the back should be RAiSED THiCK LEATHER. They do this for every handbag and wallet. If it's flat and coarse feeling, it's fake. The heart mirror that is inside of an Authentic Juicy bag is detachable so that you can take the heart off, like a key ring. If you see a Juicy Bag that shows the heart mirror completely connected with no way to detach, it's fake. The heart mirror on a fake Juicy bag is also flat at the top without an arch, so it looks like a straight line (see 5th pic below). The heart on a real Juicy bag will also have "I am the fairest" on it. The "I" is always underlined to show emphasis. The leather on Juicy bags are smooth and thick. Never thin or flimsy looking. The scarf that comes with the daydreamers are always full, thick and are tied in a perfect bow in the front not the side.
Fake bags try to replicate the intricate details of Juicy. Look at the ones right above this text. The fake bags have the flower detail that resemble the real bag but the flowers on the fake bag are too big! On this particular style, the ends of the flowers are always curled in as if it's shriveling (and they are leather). Not just flat out like in the fakes, which look plastic-like. Plus on the navy velour bag, there is a coordinating navy scarf, not a pink one. The pink scarf is only on the pink velour bag made in this style. And the black velour bag in this Authentic style has a smoke grey scarf, not pink. The scarfs on a real Juicy bag are shortened in a perfect bow that stop mid-way, not long like on the fake ones. It's details like this that are hard for people to determine.
Fake bags are starting to use real Juicy tags. But avoid tags that state "Choose Juicy Beach" or ones that have the full tag but no retail cost. Some sellers will sell Juicy bags that are in colors that Juicy doesn't even make (like the last pic above!! Light blue and pink?? um, no!!). Juicy usually sticks with dark/neural colors like navy blue, marroon, brown, tan, black and does the usual light pink or white. They have made bright colored bags before though (like purple, green, etc). BUT KEEP iN MiND JUICY ALSO MAKES OTHER BAGS iN DiFFERENT STYLES THAT ARE UNLiKE THE DAYDREAMERS (such as their leather series) BUT STiLL HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF iNTRiCATE DETAiLS THAT MAKE A JUiCY BAG SO BEAUTiFUL! iF YOU NEED HELP DETERMiNiNG THE AUTHENTiCiTY OF A NON-DAYDREAMER/BOWLER STYLE HANDBAG, LET ME KNOW. The daydreamers/bowler style handbags are the most replicated type of style.
Most of the time, new ebayers come on ebay selling fake Juicy bags. But even so, established sellers can also sell fake Juicy. If this guide was helpful to you, please mark "yes".
