Like you I have always dreamt of owning a Chanel bag, but I had two things holding me back from adding one to my designer handbag collection:

  1. The price. Yes, we all know that Chanel bags are not cheap, but wowza! One new jumbo Chanel bag could cover my rent in San Francisco for three months!
  2. The staff. Am I the only one out here that is intimidated by the staff at every Chanel boutique?

Ok. So I am clearly wearing a Chanel bag in these photos so you’ve got to be wondering how I purchased it…

The answer my friends is eBay! I’ve been able to find (almost) every Chanel bag I’ve desired on eBay and for a fraction of the cost!

I know what some of you are thinking – designer bags are a big investment and eBay can be intimidating, but I am here to tell you that it isn’t. It is so quick + simple and I honestly do the majority of my shopping from my the eBay app instantly with a single click (no auction required) on my phone with free shipping. eBay literally has every brand, price point, season, and style.  On top of all of that 85% of all clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry and beauty products on eBay are brand-new!

I purchased this vintage Chanel belt bag at a steal of a price and can NOT stop styling it. From music festivals to a night out with the girl’s this classic Chanel bag has worked itself seamlessly into my wardrobe. I love that I snagged it in black and can simply style it into my outfit as both a belt and a bag!
