There’s a saying, you cant buy happiness, but you can buy BAGS, and that’s kind of the same thing.
Why do us women love handbags so much?
Scientists all over the world still cant come up with an explanation and it’s become one of those universal facs that our male counterparts have come to accept.
Women simply cannot have too many bags and the only BS we need are Bags and Shoes.
Given the money to splurge, we don’t just want one-- but maybe one of each kind, color, and design.
Having multiple pretty bags in my opinion give you the opportunity to switch up your style for a day. You can match it on your own or just accessorize with your shoes or tops. You can go basic with jeans and a shirt and accentuate the whole style with an "it" bag. Your bag defines who you are and it can sometimes transform your look from drag—to fab!
I currently own four luxury bags, (3 of them I received as gifts) and since my obsession is limited to what I earn, I’ve become a lot more meticulous and particular about what and where I buy them from (specially from online stores). My partner recently bought me (as a valentine gift) a preloved LV Tivoli bag.
I had sleepless nights over the LV Tivoli, worried that I might get duped or receive a fake item so I was really doing a lot of research before I finally contacted the seller and make my purchase—haggling for the best price along the way, of course.
At a time when a lot of people are making more online purchases its no surprise that a lot of people are also buying and selling luxury bags online. And if you are really patient you can find the real thing, at a fraction of a price at an online store. There are so many choices when you go for preloved/ pre owned bags.
You just have to be really careful with the people you deal with and their reputation is just as important as the stocks they have. In this age and time,
One can own a bag of their dreams like the Chanel 2.55, the Classic Flap Bag, an Antigona, LV Palermo, Coach or anything that you have in mind.
Like I said, you just have to check the sellers reputation, if she is legit, you can ask for her/his social platform where she is active. In my case, I belong to a group who knows how to authenticate date code, stitches, zipper puller, lining, bag handles and style of the bag. If I am 100% sure of the bag’s authenticity then its time to haggle around.
The first thing I check is seller's location, phone number and social media platform so that I know who I am dealing with. I usually ask questions about the merchandise she is selling, where did she get the bag etc, and product information through FB messenger, viber or whatever social platform she is active with
One of the most trusted online sellers of preloved and original bags is LuxOnlinePH and they have the celebrity clientele to back them up and because of their popularity, they even opened a physical store so their clients can actually see touch and check out the items in person.
I recently attended a Bag Lounge by LuxonlinePH launch at Ayala Malls Southpark, Alabang last May 6 (I followed Ms Anna Magkawas of Luxonline PH, long before the event. So I already know what she is selling to the public, and she caters to local celebrities as well.
The event was attended by owner Ms Anna Magkawas and graced by celebrities Ms.Pops Fernandez, Maricar Poon and selected media.
The Givenchy Antigona Mini caught my attention. Its so pretty in actual. I'll start earning as early as today to get my hands on it. The store houses the branded/luxury bags, some are brand new and preloved but can pass by as new.
