If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you probably might know that I’m a huge fan of Hermés. Although their leather goods come with 5-figure and even 6-figure price tags, I can’t deny the success of the brand’s designs because I love them myself. From the variety of colors and leathers to iconic and timeless designs, they have always been one of my most-coveted luxury brands.

Over one year ago I purchased a Birkin dupe from Aliexpress, and while I loved it back then I did have some qualms: the bag wasn’t packed securely for shipping, which created creases in the bag upon delivery. And although the stitches were immaculate, I feel that after having gotten my hands on tons of different kinds of dupes this past year, overall, the quality and experience of purchasing from Aliexpress wasn’t as great as the other bags I have gotten since then.

I have gotten several bags from Ainifeel on Amazon, and with each and every single one I’ve been impressed by the quality put into their bags – out of all the designer dupe bags I’ve ever gotten (and I own over 25 as of this blog post), their handbags reign supreme. So I’ve teamed up with them again to share several different versions of their Birkin-inspired handbag, from varying colors, leathers, and sizes.

Tan 30cm Birkin Dupe

The non-Ainifeel version of this tan bag that I purchased in the past was a 35cm – and while this is a great size for women who love larger bags, I find that the 30cm is the perfect size for me. It’s not too big to be a burden, but also not too small to be impractical for your belongings.

And how gorgeous is the contrast white stitching?! Tiny details like this can easily be overseen but can also make a huge difference in the “upscale” appearance – as an onlooker, I would say this looks just like the real thing without the brand logo!

This handbag is easily my favorite one, but maybe because I just love the color tan – it’s so chic, classy and luxurious.

This bag comes with 2 twilly scarves.

Military Green 25cm Birkin Dupe

The 25cm isn’t a popular choice, but after seeing Kardashian members Kylie and Kendall rock their “baby” Birkins with confidence, I’ve noticed that these small bags can still give off that “rich” vibe to even casual outfits and sportswear. I definitely need to start getting more leggings and sportswear to rock with my baby Birkin dupe!

The color is definitely a lush dark green and not a vibrant green, and I feel that the darker hue makes it look much more luxurious and nearly authentic compared to a brighter hue.

This bag also comes with a shoulder strap which makes it perfect to convert to a shoulder bag as well as two twilly scarves.

Ostrich Dark Taupe 35cm Birkin Dupe

After doing a bit of research with my luxury style blogger gal pal Wynn from Wander x Luxe (whom also owns several authentic Hermés handbags), I decided to go for the dark taupe color as it was one of the colors that were most similar to its Hermés counterpart. It’s not to say that the other colors aren’t gorgeous, I just prefer neutral colors as I’m not one to incorporate bold neon or pastels into my handbag wardrobe – this gives me more versatility to use one handbag with a various number of outfits.

I know I said earlier that I prefer smaller bags, but I chose to go with the 35cm for the ostrich textile because I feel this size/textile combination along with the gold hardware would compliment more of my upscale business outfits.

It’s important to note that this bag is not made of ostrich but is cow leather that’s been texture-stamped for the ostrich texture and look. As a result, this bag is much stiffer than the regular leather bags, but definitely is a unique spin on the bag if you want a unique choice. I would like to think that over time and repeated use as with any other leather bag, this will eventually loosen up and gain some slouch.

Unfortunately, I can’t compare the texture and feel of this bag to the real one because I have never come across a real one before – ostrich is one of the more rare bags that Hermés offers – but hey, it looks great to me!

This particular bag was stamped with the Ainifeel logo, although I did notice that on the Amazon reviews, some people have received these bags without the logo. I think this is a result of having varying stock from different production batches. If a logo is bothersome to you, don’t worry- grab a pencil eraser and gently rub away at the logo for a few minutes if you prefer to forego the logo. I’ve done this before to several other bags since I prefer going logo-less, so it’s fine to do!

This bag also came with two twilly scarves, one for each handle.

Did you know that a pre-owned crocodile Hermés Birkin can start at $55,000? Imagine the full price! You can grab this gorgeous designer dupe for only $145. - www.theballeronabudget.com

Crocodile Dark Blue 30cm Birkin Dupe

Similar to the ostrich bag, this crocodile bag is also made of cow leather and not actual crocodile skin – however, it does look just like the Blue Marine crocodile that Hermés has to offer. Wynn pointed out that Hermés crocodile skins are very consistent in color, meaning that the veins in-between the scales are usually matching in color (example: light blue veins and dark scales are not Hermés quality). With this key piece of information, I decided to get the dark blue as it was the most closest-resembling color to one of the croc colors that Hermés offers.

Although the textile is thicker than regular leather, it has more slouch than the ostrich and is far less stiff.

Note that the bag I received was also stamped with the Ainifeel logo; however, as mentioned previously, there’s nothing a good pencil eraser can’t remove if the logo is bothersome to you!

This bag comes with 2 twilly scarves.

    Great post! I actually own a couple of these – but just be aware – I tried reselling one on Poshmark and it got pulled from the site as a “replica” or “counterfeit” bag and my account almost got removed. Even though we consider these “dupes” a lot of other resale sites still consider almost exact duplication of the Hermes bag style and structure (like the Teddy Blake but the TB bags have a different shaped plaque) even though it doesn’t have the logo – as too close on bordering trademark infringement. You don’t want to be the one going to battle with Hermes on being sued trying to sell something that they would still consider trademark infringement. It’s a touchy, touchy subject for sure. Beautiful bags!

      Hi there! Yes, I have learned that with reselling website there are keywords that can be picked up by certain filters and get deleted as a result. I haven’t experienced this as I have not resold any handbags, but there were things like sweaters and pants that I listed as “designer-inspired” and Depop and Poshmark deleted my listings.

      I don’t consider it copyright infringement, but rather that these websites are capable of filtering out certain “hot” words in listing descriptions that trigger red flags. After all, huge retailers like Forever 21 and H&M create designer-inspired bags all the time, but have not gotten in trouble for them. I think what becomes copyright infringement is passing it off as an original design, or an authentic piece. But who knows!
