Is it authentic? 

Each and every item has been thoroughly checked over by our team and has been certified by two separate third party authenticator; Entrupy, and Authenticate First. Here at The Guilty Woman we pride ourselves on delivering only authentic luxury goods and still keeping to our outlet prices. We are constantly educating ourselves on new styles and doing our part to combat counterfeiters.  


How do you know?

When authenticating an item we look at a number of things some including but not limited to: Stitching, material, hardware, construction of overall bag, and of course date codes and authenticity numbers. Often vintage bags won't come with authenticity numbers, and some authentic bags can have fake authenticity cards so we look at every detail when authenticating.

 What does Preloved mean?

Preloved is the same meaning as secondhand. These are bags that have been curated, examined, conditioned, and whatever else it may need to be ready for it's new home. It's important to remember when shopping preloved, that none of the preloved items will be in 100% perfect condition unless stated. If you ever need help understanding the condition of a bag please email us: hello@theguiltywoman.com


Why don't you show date codes? 

Due to the rise of counterfeiters we do not post any photos of authenticity numbers or date codes. This is our way to combat the sale of counterfeit goods. Counterfeiters are getting smarter and it is our job to be vigilant. If you have a question about authenticity or would like to see photos of date codes please email us at info@theguiltywoman.com
