Purchasing Pre-Owned Louis Vuitton on eBay

SHOP THE LOOK:


One of the most common questions I receive from y’all is regarding pre-owned luxury handbags, so I thought I would break down some of the details today. Purchasing a designer bag, for most of us, is a major investment and one that should be approached with time and research. I, personally, have never bought a bag on a whim and without the necessary consideration. Besides the obvious of simply loving the style and look of a purse, there are a few important things I contemplate.

Firstly, is this bag practical? I tote around an insane amount of stuff on a daily basis and while I may spring for a crossbody for a night out, a bag that will hold all my odds and ends is one that’s worth spending a bit more money on. Secondly, is the color and material something that will pair well with the majority of my wardrobe and hold up to the wear and tear of everyday life? While my heart beats for pink, a stick to neutrals and classic prints that I can wear with everything for years.

Finally, is this something I need brand new or can I save by purchasing it pre-loved? While forgoing the storefront option may take away from the experience of buying luxury products, I’m personally more concerned with the bag itself. My dustbags and designer boxes are (ironically) collecting dust deep in my closet. As such, lately I have gone the route of pre-owned bags. Sure, it takes a bit of extra effort, but that time has saved me a huge chunk of change.

In the past, it’s been tricky to determine which sites are legitimate. Luckily, eBay has a dedicated section of their site for Authenticated Luxury Handbags. These bags have been verified by experts and guaranteed by eBay. And many even have a return option! I found this Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM while browsing the hundreds of gently used Louis Vuitton bags and it came with sturdy, secure packaging and a tag proving that it was reviewed by the experts. Plus, did you know that 69% of items on eBay ship for free?! The ease of delivery is great for folks like me that live in small-town America.

After carrying this Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM for some time now, I recommend it wholeheartedly over any of my other bags. The size, shape, color, and material are so classic and practical and it’s one you will love for years to come. An added pleasant surprise of this tote is how well it wears over time. The straps not only deepen in color, but soften for a more comfortable wear on your shoulder. As such, this handbag is one you should consider purchasing pre-owned on eBay.

Falling for Burt’s Bees Liquid Lipstick

Hi, loves! I am back at it again with another makeup review. I hope y’all like reading them as much as I like writing them because testing out products and hunting for the best prestige and drugstore makeup has become such a passion of mine. I’m even flirting with the idea of investing in some equipment and starting a YouTube channel (eek! stay tuned). Lip products, in particular, are so tricky to sort through because the market is so inundated. And I’m picky because I want so many things out of a lipstick! I want them to be pigmented, long-lasting but not drying, and feel soft and hydrating on my lips. A girl has needs!

I should have known that Burt’s Bees would deliver the most gorgeous and comfortable liquid lips because their lip balm is THE BEST and I always have one in my purse, car, pocket, etc. If a matte liquid lip dries down leaving your lips stiff and flaky and clinging to any dry patches, you’ll have to join me in trying these. These have a soft shimmery, glossy finish which saves me a step in my makeup routine. Plus, the 100% natural liquid lipstick contains conditioning Apricot and Babassu Oil, Shea Butter, and essential fatty acids to maintain soft, happy lips.

Burt’s Bees was kind enough to send over eight shades of their Liquid Lipsticks and y’all, I feel like I’ve hit the drugstore lottery! Burt’s Bees® Liquid Lipsticks glide on smoothly for an intense hit of color. This long-wearing formula delivers all-day moisture leaving lips looking lush and healthy.

My favorite part of this line is that the shade range is perfect for Fall – from the neutrals, to the cool-tone pinks, to the berries – there’s something for everyone. The swatches really say it all! My favorite combo, and what I’m pictured wearing, is 814 Primrose Pool all over the lips and a hint of 805 Pouring Nude layered on top for a bit of an ombre effect. The pop of shimmery nude in the center of my lips is one of my go-to tricks for giving the illusion of a fuller pout.

Each of these pretties are a steal at under $10 at CVS!

Hi, guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. I am getting this post up late-night Monday because I spent the weekend in the mountains with Toyota for a blogger trip and have been playing catch up all day. I can’t wait to share more details about that trip (Cashiers was absolutely stunning!), but today is all about one of my favorite trends for Fall – leopard print.

If you can’t tell by my usual preppy, feminine style, this look is a bit out of my comfort zone. Even though I tend to steer clear of neutrals and opt for colorful prints, it was impossible to resist this perfect leopard blazer. The oversized cut is comfortable and flattering, but the best news is that it’s currently 40% off with code COZY40. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium and typically do in all Goodnight Macaroon pieces. Quick tip – be sure to select expedited shipping because your package will be coming from overseas.
