Designer Bags for Less

Good morning! I am SO EXCITED about today’s post because it’s about something that every girl loves – bags! The first designer bag I ever fell in love with was an Hermes Birkin Bag on Gossip Girl. I was in law school at the time and told my roommate that I finally decided what kind of bag I wanted: a “Her-meez” Birkin bag! She died out laughing and said: “Lauren, it’s pronounced “Air-May” and those bags are $10,000. haha whoops! And while I haven’t added a Birkin bag to my collection I have added two designer bags that I love and honestly wish I had invested in them sooner. But it IS an investment, and knowing where or how to buy them, and making sure they are authentic, can be difficult and scary. For me, going the pre-loved route of handbags is a no-brainer….it’s less expensive, with all the perks of having the bag of your dreams.

I first heard about StockX bags two months ago while at the RewardStyle conference. One of my best friends had a gorgeous Gucci Bag and when I complimented her on it she told me about StockX. After doing my research, this is what I’ve learned about StockX:

1) They do all of the work for you – they make sure that all the bags are 100% authentic so you don’t have to guess. When buying pre-loved luxury items, the key is to know your source, and StockX vets all the bags before they ship to the buyer. There’s complete transparency.

2) They provide historical and real time live pricing data so you don’t have to compare prices.

3) Once you decide what bag you want you can buy or bid. For the buying option, the “lowest ask price” is the price the seller will immediately accept. It’s the seller saying “I will sell this bag for xxx amount”. The bid option allows you to place a bid on a bag. Usually this price will be lower than the “lowest ask price.” Once you submit a bid, the seller can accept or reject your offer.

As far as which designer bag to get – it’s completely up to you! I’ve invested in the Givenchy Antigona bag and have loved it. And just added this LV Neverfull for everyday use. What’s your dream bag? Thank you so much for reading!
