In celebration is National Second Hand Wardrobe Day, so I am sharing my favorite thing to buy second hand: bags. Buying second hand is not only eco-friendly, it’s also more budget friendly (in most cases) and you can find rare and unique styles including the one that got away. For me, that will be the Chanel ribbon tweed bag, but – SPOILER ALERT – I found it.
Here are the 5 second hand bags I am obsessed with:
I have never seen this bag re-sold for less than double what it retailed for. This is below retail and absolutely bananas. It’s one of my favorite bags of all time, and the only season I don’t wear it is peak summer.
Nothing beats a classic Chanel in a hot color and chevron quilting. Nothing.
I love everything about this bag, especially the price here (it’s heavily discounted because it’s missing the strap). I adore this badass bag paired with pretty much anything, but especially with any femme getups to toughen things up. It would be my bag of choice all October long.
I’ve been lusting over the ribbon tweed since it came out, and the WOC has quickly become my favorite Chanel silhouette. Double swoon. It’s a very rare and sought after tweed, so I am shocked I even found it.
What is your favorite things to buy second hand?
