When a girl receives her dream bag, it’s like nothing else around them even matter anymore. As soon as you get the bag you have wished for, for so long, you instantly want to buy more until you can’t anymore. This is how I felt last month when I received my Telfar Shopping bag. I suddenly wanted to buy every color. I did not care if I went broke for the stunning bag. I NEEDED MORE! This obsession with getting new bags is what ultimately births a superb handbag collection.
Many designer handbags out in the world can be easily collected, such as the Fendi Baguette bags, Christian Dior saddle bags, Louis Vuitton, and so many more. I mention these bags in particular because there are so many variations and colorways to those specific bags. If you go on fashion consignment sites such as TheRealReal,Fashionphile and Rebag, there are hundreds of different kinds of Louis Vuitton bags, Fendi Baguette bags and Christian Dior bags. Because of the many different variations, it is super easy to start collecting them.
The designer bag that is the most desired (other than the Hermès Birkin & Kelly) is the Chanel Flap and Chanel Boy Bag. These two bags are every girl’s dream bag. The Chanel handbag has way more variations than other handbag designer labels. Chanel handbags hold a lot of history and have many stories on their creation, which is what makes them so special.
Many of these unique and rare Chanel handbags are sold on fashion consignment shops and their website. The most money I’ve seen for a Chanel handbag was $22,000 and this is because it had Alligator material. Other than that, rare and exclusive Chanel bags start from $3,000 and up.
Chanel bags are such an excellent investment if you are looking to start your luxury handbag collection. I know the price is costly, but the bags are timeless pieces and will never go out of style. You can start by saving up your money and buying a unique Chanel once a year.
