If you follow any fashion blog/vloggers then you will probably have heard of the Alexander Wang Rocco counterfeit bag (known as the "focco") which is available for a fraction of the price, on eBay. It started becoming a bit of a craze back in the summer and I held off buying one for a few months, but finally succumbed.
I wouldn't get much change from £1000 if I bought the real deal and as I am still but a student I decided to buy a look-a-like. Before you all burn me at the stake, the bag on eBay is not actually advertised as "Alexander Wang", in fact the name is mentioned nowhere on the bag or advert at all.
Anyway, enough trying to convince myself. I thought I would review the bag for anyone who wants to buy it.
Firstly, I bought the bag from flowerheart2010 eBay seller for £25 but there are lots of other sellers out there, all you need to do it search something like "celebrity studded bag" and plenty will come up.
Here are some photos of the bag:
I personally love the look of this bag, especially the studs. It is not real leather and neither is the quality of the material great but it definitely looks good quality and feels like leather.
The size is perfect and just fits A4; it has a zip pocket inside as well as pouches for a phone and keys.
In terms of value for money I think that this bag is excellent. Having said this, although it may look very durable, but don't expect miracles when it comes to the quality of this bag.
I bought this bag without a strap but there are sellers who do it with one and it is also available in various colours including brown and grey.
With regards to the seller that I purchased from, the transaction was smooth, P&P reasonable and delivery was speedy.
Overall, I give this bag a solid 7 out of 10 purely because it looks so good. You never know, if I still like it as much as I do now I might buy the real thing.. if I manage to finish university.. and if my mum lets me.
