I will admit it—I am late to the pre-loved luxe game. I definitely had some trust issues. I am a researcher, so in reading blogs, watching YouTube videos and groups on Facebook…. I was one nervous handbag lover. My normal process is to research, try-on in store if possible, to check my savings and to check in with my handbag loving friends to see what they think. So relying on pictures and other people’s descriptions was difficult for me. I knew I had to expand my research to experiences that others have had before buying pre-loved.
When I focused in on a Céline Nano Luggage back in July, I decided that I would go with Fashionphile because the site had several choices of the bag. Let me tell you that I got extremely lucky and in a few days I found one in excellent (a Fashionphile description category) condition. I will say, finding exactly what you want pre-loved can be hit or miss with availability but don’t give up. I was a bit nervous because I need to inspect the bag before purchasing. This was another reason I picked Fashionphile… they have a return policy that allows you to return if the bag was not as expected. I got it for a great price, so pre-loved is a great option for those looking for a deal.
Now about the bag…. I picked the Céline Nano Luggage in black drummed calfskin. I had seen this version in several videos & posts and loved the style and simplicity of the bag. I love that you can wear it on your arm and use the long strap for cross-body. The black is classic, so goes with everything. The shape is a bit slim and tall, so if you fill it up you may be stacking your items. I have enjoyed carrying the it and love the size for my lifestyle. It fits my phone and essentials with no problem. If someone were to ask me, I would definitely suggest this style.
There are stories/rumors out there that the new designer for the line with get rid of some styles including the Luggage. This makes me sad because it is a great option. If you are in the market for a new one, get it while you can. If you want pre-loved, head to your favorite site and search away. I will link to my specific bag and to Fashionfile’s Celine page below.
