From street style stars to the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, we can't seem to escape the trend that is micro purses. In the time we took trying to figure out how to fit anything other than our cell phone in these tiny little bags to toying with our emotions towards hanging up our favorite totes, designer brands have crafted up the perfect little (emphasis on the little) bags of our dreams and we're finally ready to hop on the mini bag bandwagon. Are you?
Celebrity and blogger style is to die for, but let's face it: Most of the time they're wearing brands that are far out of our price ranges. So what's a stylish girl to do? Enter in companies like ThredUP and Vestiaire Collective who are selling designer shoes, handbags, and accessories for a fraction of the retail price.
Every month we're pulling pre-owned luxury finds we can't get enough of. What's old is always new again with fashion, but you have to act fast because these deals sell faster than the blink of an eye.
