Stop wasting your money on those knock-off and replica handbags and learn how to buy the genuine designer handbag you always wanted.

This is a great source because brand authenticity is guaranteed, it's convenient, and more than often there are good discounts. One of my favorite websites is Bluefly.com

Some handbags even go on sale before the pre-sale!

I know it sounds like getting that designer handbag may be a hassle, but it's well worth it. What do you think about the process? Do you have other ideas to score that handbag you have been saving for?
