CHANEL AUTHENTICATION: THE 4 STEPS I TOOK | RESEARCH, PHOTOS, CHANEL REPAIR, IN-PERSON | heycarmen





HI GUYS! I’m back with an authentication video about my new Chanel bag. I went through a rollercoaster of feelings before and after receiving this bag from a private seller from eBay and I wanted to share you guys (or anyone looking for this info) everything that I learned from this experience. I hope this will be useful for anyone out there in a similar position that I was. ā¤ļø

The 4 Steps/Ways I Took to Authenticate My Chanel Bag:
Time Stamps
1. Research: 3:01
2. Photo-Authentication Online, I used RealAuthentication.com: 11:26
3. Taking the bag into a Chanel boutique for a repair: 12:57
4. In-person Authentication by a trusted professional, this authenticator worked at TheRealReal in SoHo: 20:02

I know this video was quite lengthy and could have been more organized but I wanted to get everything across as genuine and *authentic* (lol) as possible. šŸ™‚ I would do it all over again because I was able to save a significant amount on this beautiful
purse, as well as it not being available to purchase from Chanel itself.

I lub you guys šŸŒš & as always I will see you in the next one!!

    Hi Carmen! Just wanted to let you know, the ink from the business card that you put in the back pocket might transfer onto the light patent leather! Though patent is not super delicate, it is prone to sticking to paper/ink and then be impossible to remove.

  2. That bag is gorgeous!!! šŸ˜ it was a lot of work but I can tell you love it so it was worth it!!!

  6. Honestly, all this work and effort you are putting to see if this is real…does not seem worth saving that money. You mention you went through 'rollercoaster of feelings'. I'd say why not buy the real thing and not put yourself through this? Unless this is something you like to do in your free time. Which may be the case given a lot of your videos are about designer purses.
