Louis Vuitton SLG Collection (Small Leather Goods)

The great thing about small leather goods is, they are a great way to dip your toe in and get a feel for a brand, before committing to a higher priced item like a handbag. You can pick up an SLG on the preloved market for a fairly affordable price and see how you get on with it.

Updated Louis Vuitton Collection & How Much I Paid

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!

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.

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.
