My Jimmy Choo Ramona handbag that I paid big $$$$ for has fallen apart after 2 months! I was really excited when I finally won a Jimmy Choo Ramona bag. It was gorgeous. Patent leather with gold finishings. I was the envy of a lot of women and I happily shared with them that I had purchased it on ebay!
Now I just didn't purchase the first Ramona bag that came along! I was careful to purchase it from a reliable ebayer that had a lot of great feedback and that wasn't selling lots of Ramonas (first sign its a fake). I thought I was purchasing a 'gently used' personal seller's bag. I too left 5 star feedback when I got my bag.
So what happened to the bag?
After 1 month, a small gold button on the back of the large closing flap fell off. I shrugged this off. No matter, no one can see it as it is on the other side. Then the other one fell off and I thought - no problem, don't need them anyway - now its matches and no one will notice.
After 1.5 months - the front buckle came off! Now its a problem as I can no longer close the bag and I can no longer use it. I can't return it to the store and demand that they fix it or refund me. Surely its supposed to last more than 1 month?
As tempting as it may be to get your Jimmy Choo Ramona - or any other famous brand bag, just think about it carefully. What was a real bargain is now a big waste of money! If you already have one of these bags - USE IT GENTLY! I was using it every day. I guess you need to bring it out only on special occasions and use treat it with kit gloves.
