One of my favorite (and easiest!) types of pairings is clean and minimalistic lines with a punch of fresh color. This look was inspired by Olivia Pope with her sharp trousers and seemingly never-ending repository of Prada bags. For a more formal setting, you can top it off with a neutral navy or camel brown blazer.
I post about luxury bags a lot on here and often mention that I don’t mind buying pre-owned when possible. I usually only pay full price when I can’t find an exact color or material combo that I’m looking for (as in the case of my Celine nano, which I’ll do a review on soon!), but will always browse pre-owned options before doing so. Unfortunately there are a lot of counterfeit goods online so I caution readers to please do your research and purchase only from reputable sources. Trendlee is a NYC-based seller of preowned, authenticated luxury handbags that I first learned about through my friend Wendy, and have since done a lot of my own research on. Before partnering with this brand, I’ve personally ordered and returned items with them, and found the customer service to be speedy and the bags to be both authentic and in good condition.
From my own orders I noted each bag comes with a certificate of authenticity from a 3rd party, and returns are accepted following their posted policy – please note shipping costs both ways are the responsibility of the buyer, so I’d suggest carefully zooming in on each bag and checking the measurements to make sure it’s what you want before ordering (I like the black shoe they always use as a size reference!).
From my research, I’ve found their pre-owned prices to be very fair, especially compared to some sites which often list pre-owned bags for almost more than current retail. Trendlee has new arrivals each Thursday and the popular styles go quick, so I like checking in early Thurs. mornings to see if anything on my wishlist has come in. I have seen lots of classics come through like Chanel flaps, YSL clutches, Celine bags of all sizes, Goyard, and numerous options from the Prada tote lines that I love.
