My Next Handbag Purchase 2019

Stephanie Kamp Blog: My Next Handbag Purchase 2019
Hey guys,

So this post is not meant to sound braggy or to make me sound spoiled. I just wanted to write this post because I've been thinking about buying a new designer handbag for a while and I meant to buy myself one for my 25th birthday but honestly spending like that gives me awful anxiety. So I usually take a really long time before I decide to buy one! When I bought my first Louis Vuitton, I walked into the store and new exactly what I wanted but I ended up leaving with a different bag. It was technically the same bag, the only difference is the one I left with had a crossbody strap that the sales associate recommended I get. Yes, it was like $300 more just for the design with the strap but I definitely don't regret it at all. My next one, I knew exactly what I wanted again and I even had the company tell the store to put one on hold for me because they had run out online. I reserved it the night before and drove to our nearest store and picked it up the next day.

Now with all of this being said, the last time I spent a large amount of money on a new designer handbag was back in February of 2016. So I honestly think it's time, if I have the finances to be able to buy one. Everyone enjoys spending their money on certain things, mine just so happens to be handbags, shoes, or things for my house. I have probably talked about buying a new one for over a year now and my family is probably getting a little tired of it. But like I said before it gives me anxiety to spend that kind of money! 

So I currently have two handbags picked out and I can't decide which one I want to get. Both of them are Louis Vuitton because lets be honest this is my favorite company and it will probably be a while before I buy a different brand. The first one that I like is called the Nano Noé and the second one is the Alma BB. Both come in larger sizes but since my other two Louis handbags are pretty large I figured it's time to get something smaller and that's more of a crossbody than something that can hold my entire life! haha I also don't use my other two as much because of how large they are and how they can sometimes be too heavy. 

The only difference for this handbag is that I am thinking of buying it used. There's this website called Fashionphile and I've been looking at their stuff for quite a while now. After a handbag has been listed for a certain number of days and no one has purchased it then the handbag goes on their layaway program and basically you can put down a downpayment and then pay off the rest of the handbag over a 60 day period. Or you can obviously pay with your debt or a charge card of your choice.

However, my only warning when using this company is to make sure you look at the original price of the item because sometimes Fashionphile charges more. I haven't figured out why yet but honestly, I don't really want to pay more for a used bag when I can get the bag cheaper from the actual designer brand new. 

So when it comes to the Nano Noé, I already have two handbags that are this material, which is the typical Louis Vuitton material that everyone knows. So my only problem with that is that I was kind of wanting to get a different pattern for my next bag however, I fell in love with this style. My other concern about this bag is that it doesn't really have a closure. It only comes with draw strings and no zipper or flap or anything else to secure everything inside the purse. 

When it comes to the Alma BB, I have been eyeing this purse for quite some time now and I really like the style. I feel like it's still large enough to be able to put everything that I really need inside it but still small enough to where I won't over stuff it and it becomes too heavy to use on a daily basis. I also really like how this one is a different pattern like I've been wanting. To be honest this will probably be the one that I end up with just because of the zipper and it being something new but I just think that the Noé is such a cute style, unfortunately it's just not practical. 

I would love to know what you guys which handbag you guys think I should get! Feel free to leave me a comment down below!

  1. 100% the alma bb! It's cuter and more practical in my opinion!
