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.
When I bought my pre-loved Neverfull one of the first things I wanted to do was get it professionally cleaned. It was in really great condition but I just wanted to make it feel as new as I possibly could.
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 love my classic Speedy 30 in the damier ebene print that I purchased pre-loved. I often use it for work as it holds so much – it really is a Mary Poppins bag! Watch my video and take a peek inside at what I carry with me on a daily basis…
My Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in the damier ebene print is 7 years old. I purchased it pre-loved and have owned it for around a year and a half. I use it as my daily work bag, so it is showing some signs of wear. Watch my video to find out more…
I finally got my hands on the Louis Vuitton 6 Ring Key Holder! It was on my wishlist for the longest time and is the only piece in my collection that is brand new direct from the store.
I’ve gone through countless makeup bags in the past; often really cheap ones that would fall apart all the time. And while it was sometimes enjoyable heading to Primark before every holiday for a new toiletry case, I made the decision to purchase something that would last.
