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.
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 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…
