Most of us dream of investing in designer bags because...well, why not?
It's a girl thing, right?
Also, I find the smell of good leather simply irresistible. For me, bags are more my best friend than diamonds.
If you've been dreaming about owning your first designer bag, here are some quick tips to get you started and stop you from being intimidated by big name brands.
I'm gonna teach you how to score a legit designer handbag for less than 10k. ♥

First, let me burst your bubble.
No, 10k won't get you a Givenchy Nightingale or a Celine Trio...but that doesn't mean you can't afford their OTHER styles...
Yup, those bags that came out before they got lucky and designed a bag that would turn into a celebrity "It Bag" overnight.
Example: Balenciaga City, Givenchy Nightingale, Celine Luggage

These brands have been churning out bags since our grandma's time.
Same quality, same leather, different demand.
Because they aren't as popular, you can get them cheap...yes, less than 10k. Doesn't mean they're ugly either.

Some examples of what 10k can get you?
Preloved Bags by Chloe, Miu Miu, Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and yes, even Celine...just like the one I'm carrying in these photos.
I wanted an everyday bag that goes with everything but I didn't want the typical LV canvas just cause they're everywhere so I got this instead.
It's a vintage Celine in pristine condition and I was able to purchase it for only 5k.

If you're into LV's you can also get one for less than 10k, trust me.
WHERE TO LOOK
Instagram! There's a lot of sellers who deal in 2nd hand designer bags from Japan. In case you aren't aware, it's much cheaper there so despite shipping and everything, it still comes out quite affordable. Just be careful and make sure the seller is legit.
