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.
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.
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!
90% of my luxury items were purchased on the pre-loved market. I have learned many lessons from buying in this way, and therefore have quite a good grasp on ways you can avoid making mistakes (and potentially losing lots of money!). The main way I shop for my second hand bags is on Facebook. Keep reading to find out more…
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 knew I wanted a handbag liner for my Neverfull for a few reasons…
–To protect the inside of the bag (its an expensive purchase and I don’t want to ruin it with stains!)
–To give the bag structure (standing up on its own, as opposed to sagging when it’s put down)
–To provide some organisation (using the pockets to separate my items)
