So long story (which I won’t get into) I need a second dress, but have a very small budget. Found this one online, which I think I would really like, but I thought I knew Maggie’s stuff quite well but I’ve never seen this one before. The seller says its part of the Couture collection (which must be older). The seller has an awesome rating, but I’m hesitant to pull the trigger.
Thoughts bees? Help!
Here’s the link to the dress on Ebay.

that dress does not look legit to me at all. But, if you love the dress it doesn’t matter if it’s a real Maggie or not.
Ask to see a picture of the tag inside they claim to be there…
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. A brand new never worn “couture” Maggie – for $200?! No way.

@AdriannaJean: If the tags are on it as the description says there should be pics of them and a certificate of authenticity. I would message the seller and ask what the dress’s name is and compare it to other pics online.
The seller’s feedback is good but you never know! The first 4 pics didn’t show for me.

Prob not legit. There are a lot of Maggie’s in that price range on eBay though. I have found that anything that lists multiple sizes is usually a knock off. I always check, only US sellers and keep an eye out for the multiple sizes and stay away from them. My best friend got her Maggie on eBay for around a hundred, it was just a few seasons old.

That seller does not look legit. I bought my Maggie off of ebay and I know you can find a real maggie at a great price.

Personally I’d rather buy a preowned dress that has been worn once than a sample that has been tried on many times. I’m sure you can find a good deal there is way.

I can’t personally say one way or the other if this is legit. Ask for a photo of the inside tag and the style number. I CAN say however that I bought a Maggie couture with the tags for $130. It was a private seller and included lots of photos. @Mayabean is an awesome source of information on stuff like this.

I can tell you for a fact those are legit gowns. They are older styles (1999-2005), but they are real Maggies. Asking for a COA wont do you any good, because the certs didnt start until Spring 2005. All Maggie certs are tge same, too. They are not individual to each dress.
i can ID severalof the style names for you if you need more info about them. I have been in the business for 20 yrs. i am in no way affiliated with this seller, but i can tell you that the gowns she’s selling arelegit 🙂
