In the world of designer handbags, Chanel was my first love and will always be timeless. However, I have to admit, the Céline corner of my collection has been getting the most wear over recent years! Their classic box bag or luggage tote up the chic factor of any outfit, and if I had to pick another favorite, it’d be the belt bag which I first reviewed here. This latter bag in my opinion is one of the most underrated styles in the designer purse world – the design is minimalist and sharp, it’s fairly lightweight for Céline, and the style is convertible and functional (can be worn on the shoulder, cross-body, or hand-held as shown below). Yet somehow, I almost never see anyone around town toting this style!
For today’s partnership with Trendlee, I borrowed this gorgeous pre-owned Céline belt bag in the “micro” size from their inventory to feature. It’s in pristine condition and petite-proportioned, in an elegant combination of neutral pebbled leather with light gold hardware. If I didn’t already have a few bags in this same color of textured leather, I would’ve definitely bought this beauty at the pre-owned price.
If you’re looking for a different style or brand, Trendlee has a big selection of pre-owned designer bags, with new arrivals every week. See my older posts featuring a red Prada bag or a Saint Laurent satchel from their collections. I like that they provide large and clear photos of the actual item for sale, detailed info on condition, and a third-party authentication certificate for each handbag. Since size can be hard to gauge when shopping online, they include measurements as well as a size reference photo of each bag standing next to a shoe (which I find to be quite helpful!). I’ve curated some of my favorite classic styles on this page – you can use the code EXTRAPETITE17 for 5% off your purchase through October 20th (UPDATE: this has been increased to 10% off from 9/21 – 9/25 only!) . Happy shopping, and let me know if you end up checking anything off your bag wishlist!
Thank you to Trendlee for partnering on this post.
