I can’t tell you how long I’ve been searching for this item! They are always sold out on the Louis Vuitton website, and therefore people have the cheek to try and sell them above the retail price for those that can’t wait for them to come back in stock. I knew I wanted one preloved and was only going to buy one for the right price and in good condition. I had seen so many REALLY worn ones but held out for something better. And here she is…
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 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!
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.
Personalising my agenda is a way to make it extra special; it also encourages me to use it a lot more! As you can see I’ve had my initials hot stamped in gold – this is a free service offered at Louis Vuitton stores. I’ve also found some really stunning stationary to use inside.
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.
In all honesty, I can not pinpoint the time in my life when I decided I would like to purchase luxury goods. I’ve always loved handbags and accessories, but for most of my life have relied on the high street.
