Talking through my best and worst purchases of 2019. I didn’t go on too much of a shopping spree, but I did buy a few things. I also had my 30th birthday last year so that was an occasion I wanted to mark with something special. Among the hits, there were also a couple of misses…
I now have a total of seven Louis Vuitton pieces so I wanted to do an updated collection video to show you each one in order of when I got them. I also thought it would be really interesting to go through how much I paid for each item on the pre-loved market and compare that to the retail prices. The amount I’ve saved is incredible!
A Keepall has been on my wishlist for quite a while. For weekends away, I was lugging around a small suitcase which seemed a bit too much for most trips. A Keepall looked perfect for my needs, but I definitely didn’t have the funds to buy one brand new!
The Kate Spade Daniels Drive Abigail is the bag I reach for when I want a black bag, big enough for everyday essentials but not too big. If is so versatile and robust, I couldn’t be without it. Take a look at what fits inside…
In all honesty I do prefer designer handbags to ones from the high-street because, generally speaking, the quality means they are going to last much longer. However, I like to keep a few non-designer handbags, for those times when I don’t want to use something expensive.
Oxfam have launched #SecondHandSeptember – a campaign to try and discourage people from buying new clothing and accessories for the entire 30 days of the month. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the environmental impact of fast fashion and highlight the importance of limiting the amount of clothes we send to landfill.
One thing I love most about the Chanel Wallet on Chain is its versatility. You can wear it so many ways, dressed up or down.
The Chanel Wallet on Chain is the newest bag in my collection, and the most expensive! For that reason I want to make sure I keep it looking as good as possible, for as long as possible. Therefore, I’ve decided to use some leather protect products to help achieve this.
I am a huge champion of vintage pieces, a sustainability enthusiast and a lover of buying on a budget. Most of my collection is second hand, so I am constantly on the lookout for pre-loved websites selling luxury accessories.
As a self-confessed handbag addict, I wanted something truly special to mark my 30th birthday. I’ve always dreamed of one day owning a Chanel but never thought it would be a reality. To some people (who don’t share my passion for luxury) it’s “just a bag” – but to me it’s a milestone! And a symbol of hard work paying off.
