Looking chic is simply not enough. Besides appearances, quality also matters both when we are talking about an imitation designer bag and about an online replica merchant. Ms-Chic.com, is it the fake bags’ website that can perfectly balance the “chic” and the “quality” factors? Let’s find out!
The top menu bar presents all the important sections of this website, like Product, About Us, Quality Control, Payment, Shipping and Contact Us. Obviously, by placing the cursor over the Product button it shows all the available replicas, sorted by brands. Each brand is divided into subcategories depending on the type of products the merchant carries. For example, Louis Vuitton includes: Bags, Wallets, Agendas and Belts. Ms-Chic.com carries far more items than just bags, but as our number one concern is for luxurious designer purses we will review only this section of its merchandise.
The website has a quite diverse selection of bags’ brands, but not a very wide one. Here you will find the elite of designer’s handbags such as LV, Chanel, Fendi, Gucci, Hermes, Celine, Prada, Bvlgari, Valentino, Roger Vivier and Stella Mccartney. That’s all! It may seem very limited, but for any connoisseur it is la crème de la crème.
The replica bags cost about $100-$300 depending on the materials, size and popularity of each design. These prices are fair when compared with the prices asked by other online replica merchants for the same level of quality.
Ms-Chic.com sends packages worldwide and the delivery is free. All orders are shipped with EMS, DHL and FEDEX. The selected carrier depends on the destination country. The estimated delivery time is 5-7 business days and a tracking number is supplied for each shipped order. The best part about its shipping policy is that if the package is lost during shipping then the company will pay to resend a replacement.
At first glance, Ms-Chic.com looks like a pretty chic online replica bags store, but under the elegant layout, pretty sliding banners, blue and orange color scheme there are some very anesthetic slips such as the “Lastest” products from the bottom of the page. And YES, I did write “Lastest” on purpose because this is the “chic term” they decided to use for their latest products. Also, all these replicas are listed on the bottom of the homepage even though they do not have a presentation photo; instead, all of them feature a blank square. That’s very sloppy, if you ask me.
Browsing through all of them is a real challenge as the bags’ sub-category of each brand isn’t divided by collections and you cannot sort the replicas by price or style. Even more dreadful, not all the items load once you access a certain page. It loads just a part of the sub-category, you scroll down and it loads another part and to load the next sequence of items you need to scroll up and down again, and so on until there are no other replicas to load. For the brands that include a couple hundred items or more it will take ages to view all the replicas.
The actual problem appears when you want to read the description page and see what is the degree of quality and accuracy of these replicas. The purses do not have an actual description. These bags list only the following information: product name, product ID number, price and size. Nothing else is written about these replicas. It doesn’t say a thing about the fabric, the hardware, the design, tags or other particularities.
The company is able to accept payments by Bank Wire, Western Union and Money Gram. All orders paid with Western Union or Money Gram will receive a 10% discount. Even though the 10% discount may sound very tempting, you cannot ignore the fact that this replica merchant does not accept any secure payments such as credit card or Paypal. Bank Wires, Western Union and Money Gram are not very reliable payment methods when you are purchasing online and especially if you do not know the merchant. In case of a scam, what can you do for recovering your money? Oh well, with these payment options there is nothing else to do, but accept your loss.
On the website there is no piece of information regarding its refund/exchange policy or its replacement/repairs warranty. This seems very strange to me, especially because the merchant has a page with a return request form that asks for order ID, customer’s name and email address. Still, it does not say the extent of the warranty and the conditions for complying with its terms.
The photos do not do any service to these imitation bags. The main problem is the quality of the images. The pictures are quite small and incapable of showing any details or important design particularities of these replicas. Furthermore, each fake bag has only two or three images. Usually the front and inside are photographed. There is no option to enlarge them in order to see some particular parts or details of the products. Still, it seems highly likely that these pictures are property of Ms-Chic.com and that these show its actual merchandise, but the photos do not fulfill their meaning: the one of clearly illustrating the quality we will be receiving if we purchase from this company.
The replica merchant provides customer service by phone and by email. Very intrigued by the responsiveness of its services I have tried dialing the phone number listed on the website. To my surprise, the phone number is no longer in service so no chance of reaching its operators directly by phone. Of course, if any operators actually work for this company.
This online replica merchant has a great deal of “un-chic” factors. The low usability of its website, the lack of a product description, unreliable payment methods, no information about its return and warranty policies, low quality product photos and unresponsive customer service are the things that make us doubt its capability of being a liable and legitimate supplier of imitation designer bags. For all these reasons I would strongly advise you to avoid buying from this company.
