I’m so happy with the latest SLG in my collection – the Louis Vuitton Toiletry 15. When I first received it, I thought it might be a little small for my daily essentials. But, I’m actually pleasantly surprised with how much it can fit inside!
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.
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 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 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.
