Handbags— something we as women find imperative to carry around. Like a second heartbeat, it is difficult to live a functional life without one. Imagine a day where you wouldn't have to carry anything with you; how bare would you feel? Handbags have become a security blanket, a luxury in bringing important things with us. Whether that be our wallets, daily necessities or a book we can't put down, handbags are here to stay. That being said, how often do you find yourself feeling an urge of sophistication when carrying around a bag you love? Like a good pair of boots or quality jewelry, having a handbag that makes you feel your utmost best has an impact on how you feel day-after-day because confidence has such a drastic reflection on personal style. Over the past year, I've been on the hunt for my perfect handbag— something that would be transitional and sophisticated at the same time. I truly don't 'treat' myself that often, so when I do, that guilty feeling is unfamiliar. After browsing the internet and eyeing all of the precious Chanel's and other favorites, I recently came across this Chloe Faye bag on Trendlee for hundreds of dollars cheaper than retail. I knew this was a lucky opportunity. Trendlee is the premier destination for pre-owned luxury bags, expertly precise in their ideals with a high bar for quality. Trendlee is always transparent with their descriptions, so you know exactly what you're buying before it is in your hands. Upon arrival, I couldn't believe this bag was preowned; the condition is pristine. It makes it hard to think of buying something brand new after this experience and to be honest, the hunt was half of the fun. It's true what they say about appreciating something when you have to work for it. Hello Chloé.
