As you guys know, I’ve been a proponent of buying used designer bags from the beginning, and it’s actually one of the ways I’m able to get my hands on hard-to-get “it” bags or collector items that sell out quickly. While there are so many places to buy pre-owned bags these days, StockX is one to put on your radar. It’s an online marketplace that allows you to buy and sell pre-owned goods.
StockX started out selling luxury sneakers and streetwear, but evolved into selling luxury handbags like Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Gucci, Goyard, and more. Besides having such a vast marketplace for rare designer bags, they have several other features that make them stand out. All the luxury bags listed in their catalog are in excellent condition, showing minimal to no signs of daily wear, and comes with a 100% authenticity guarantee so you never have to worry about getting a fake or damaged bag.
Handbags are typically the best wardrobe investment you can make based on their resale value and cost-per-wear. It’s the best time to buy one so you can get it in time for the New Year or for your New Year’s Eve celebrations. While the higher price tag can be intimidating, a great bag will always pull an outfit together and last a lifetime. Today, I wanted to share some of the best designer handbags you can score now.
Louis Vuitton has been the designer brand I’ve been buying into lately. So many of my favorite items, like this Multi Pochette bag, the Palm Springs Backpack, and the Pouch 26, are sold out online and in-stores (even in Paris when I was there). I’ve been getting so many DMs about these bags and they’re all available on the StockX platform. I actually got the Multi Pochette Bag from there and was really pleased with its condition. The original khaki strap is removable so you can swap it with a different colored Bandouliere for a fun look. It’s such a great going out piece, but any of the other LV bags I mentioned are great for New Year’s Eve since they’re smaller and are easy to carry around.
One of the hardest bags to get your hands on this season was the Bottega Veneta The Pouch. While you may find them in stock now, you can get the best price when you buy one pre-owned. It’s the softest leather bag in my wardrobe and the simple style means you can wear it with literally any outfit. It comes in a smaller size (here) that’s so cute if you’re looking for a unique mini bag for the new year.
With Gucci being such a hot designer handbag brand lately, their bags sell out all the time. One of the pieces I own that have been incredibly hard to find is the Marmont Matelasse Velvet bag. I have the chain version but the clutch is available here. I love wearing this bag in the winter with all my holiday looks because it’s so luxe and elegant.
More Designer Favorites
There are so many great luxury bags on StockX that I can’t possibly talk about them all. The Saint Laurent Sunset Monogram bag is another all-time favorite that I purchased earlier this year. Both the black and silver hardware bags keep selling out. The Prada Cahier is another one that’s become increasingly harder to find. StockX is also great for the classics that will always be in demand like the Chanel Flap bag and Celine Luggage.
How to Shop On StockX
There are two ways to score your next designer bag on StockX. After you create an account, enter a search for your dream bag. Once you find it, you can click the “Buy” button to purchase the item – or select the “Bid” button. With the “Bid” button, you notify the seller what you’re willing to pay if you feel like their asking price is too high. And if the seller agrees, they can accept your “Bid” and the transaction happens automatically or they can lower their “Ask” to meet you closer to your “Bid.”
One of best things about StockX is that you can place a “bid” on a bag that isn’t currently listed on the site, and when it becomes available, you’ll be notified. Another thing to love is that StockX provides pricing information about bags that have been sold, so you can do your own research to find out whether you’re truly getting a fair deal.
