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.
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.
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.
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!
