A Céline bag for a fraction of the cost???? SIGN ME UP!!!
That was my reaction when Trendlee told me I could borrow one of their pre-loved designer bags. I’ve allllllways crushed on Céline bags but never pulled the trigger on buying one for a few reasons:
1) “OMG they’re all so pretty, which one should I pick?”
2) “Holy shit, that’s expensive”
3) “Like really expensive, you could buy SO many shoes for that!”
And so it goes.
Well – Trendlee solves this #firstworldproblem.
With Trendlee, you can pick out a pre-loved designer bag and borrow it for a fraction of the retail price! You can also purchase bags for much, much less than they were originally sold for.
I picked out this bomb tri-color trapeze bag that I was totally enamored with when I saw it in the Céline store last winter. I love it, obviously. It’s beautiful and fun and chic.
BUT, you’re not gonna believe me when I say this…I wouldn’t buy it.
Are you thinking…“WTF is wrong with you Alex?”
I know, I know. But the issue is one of access. Let me give ya a real life scenario:
I’m usually carrying my purse, another bag, and my phone in my hand when I’m going into work. When I get to my office I have to get out my key card to open the door. Because of the flap, clasp, and the zipper on the bag, I can’t just reach in and grab my wallet (where my key card is). I have to flip the clasp and twist it before I can pull up the flap, and then I have to unzip the bag before I reach in. But when I unzip the bag, everything starts pouring out.
So, while I absolutely l-o-v-e this beautiful bag, I am very glad that I could borrow a Céline trapeze bag from Trendlee instead of buying one for $3k+…that’s a lot of shoes and purse rentals!
p.s. you can get 5% off from Trendlee with the code FASHIONBRIEF 🙂 (and just in case it wasn’t clear – Trendlee let me borrow this bag for this post)
