How to Get Designer Bags for Less…


 Chanel bag borrowed from Trendlee (use code CURLSANDPEARLS for 5% off)

If you're thinking of investing in a designer handbag, it's really worth looking at pre-owned ones first. The Chanel bag I'm carrying in these photos is a vintage one from Trendlee, and was for sale on their website for thousands of dollars less than it sold for originally. They carry almost every major designer from Hermes to Chloe and Givenchy… I am lusting over this Celine for fall, and this Louis Vuitton duffel bag is an amazing deal. The best part is that if you receive a handbag and you're not 100% happy with it, they do allow you to make returns! (Use the code CURLSANDPEARLS on their website for 5% off!)

Really quickly I want to point out the striped top I'm wearing in these pictures… it's only $17! I wore it on the plane yesterday for Charlotte to LA and it was so comfy…


I hope everyone has an AMAZING weekend! xoxo
