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.
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!
I love my classic Speedy 30 in the damier ebene print that I purchased pre-loved. I often use it for work as it holds so much – it really is a Mary Poppins bag! Watch my video and take a peek inside at what I carry with me on a daily basis…
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)
Once the Neverfull became my go-to work bag, I felt like I needed something smaller for weekends or just those days when I didn’t need to carry a lot. After asking the ladies on the Facebook groups for their opinions, almost everyone recommended the Speedy.
