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.
I’ve always wanted to go to Bicester Village, so as part of my 30th birthday celebrations we decided to drive the 250 miles south to spend the day there! I had an idea of what I wanted and managed to find them in Gucci and Valentino. If you haven’t already, check out my video reveal.
Last week I spent a week in Santorini for my sister’s wedding – a breathtakingly beautiful Greek island in the Aegean Sea. I have never taken any luxury bags with me on holiday before, but this time I wanted to use at least one.
I bought the Louis Vuitton Trousse 23 pre-loved from a seller on Facebook about 9 months ago. I was really impressed with the quality of the item, being a vintage piece from 1989 (the year of my birth!). However, I knew from the offset that it would be worn – I fully expected it to have a bit of an old smell and the hardware to be faded.
I absolutely love my small but perfectly formed luxury handbag collection, because I feel it’s really versatile and it covers all bases for what I need. I use each one in a different way, depending on what I’m doing.
I rate my entire collection of luxury handbags and small leather goods. This was so difficult, I love them all! But it was a fun video to make. Let me know what your best and worst pieces are or if you disagree with any of my choices!
The Longchamp Le Pliage was the bag that started my obsession with totes. Long before I got into higher end luxury pieces from the likes of Louis Vuitton, this was the bag that I used on a daily basis. Hence why it looks like it does…
