Airport Essentials Ready for Take Off!

Airport Essentials Ready for Take Off!

Posted by TESSA HALL

Let’s face it, we are all ready to get as far away from home as humanly possible! With COVID-19 restrictions lifting across the globe, two (or three) shots of the vaccine in our arms, and a savings account that screams, “I’ve been staying home for the past two years!”, the world is ready for travel again! And we’re not just talking about a weekend away in a charming town in our state, province, or surrounding area. We’re talking about jet setting to a warmer climate. Escaping to a destination unknown. Globetrotting to a far away land. Embarking on a transatlantic voyage…you get the point.

Back to School: History Lesson - Stories Behind the Most Famous Handbags

Back to School: History Lesson - Stories Behind the Most Famous Handbags

Posted by DARINA GRANIK

Last month on Instagram we asked if our followers were interested in knowing the history of Hermès Kelly bag and over 60% pressed “YES”. So September turned out to be a perfect time to share some stories and to take you through histories of the most famous, beloved and cult handbags of our time. These handbags are conversation starters, and not only status symbols but cultural symbols as they carry a plethora of cultural references and stories behind them. They don't only belong to our wardrobes and private collections, but also films, museums and art exhibitions.

Chanel Ups Their Prices, Again--and They’re Not Alone

Chanel Ups Their Prices, Again--and They’re Not Alone

Posted by TESSA HALL

If you’re a loyal Chanel fan, then you’re already aware that the iconic brand has once again increased their prices of styles, like the Chanel 19 Small Bag, up by 10% as of July 1, 2021. This most recent price increase from Chanel marks it’s third increase in the span of 14 months; during a pandemic no less. Yes, Chanel’s increase was noteworthy among many fashion bibles and publications, but it is not unique from the current trend happening within luxury brands at present.

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Posted by TESSA HALL

Is investing in the cards for your future? Does that sound totally dry and really not something you’ve thought about in-depth? Once upon a time (when our parents were young adults and thinking about their first investments) you’d have to go into a bank, talk in great lengths to some generic-looking man and try and remember all the jargon words being tossed around like diversification, bonds, dividends, and volatility. Well, times have changed, in a big way! 

Love fashion? Great at scouting out a deal? Then maybe your type of smart investment lies in the resale luxury market.

One of the people who has an enduring influence on fashion, handbags in particular, even decades after her death is Princess Diana. Her sense of style has always inspired designers and artists; she used fashion as her armour and weapon and still today her style is appealing to a new generation of fashionistas who learn about Lady Di through their icons like Rihanna, Hailey Bieber, Off-White’s designer Virgil Abloh, Instagram and the latest season of a TV-show  “The Crown”.

Thinking about Mother Nature this Mother’s Day!

Thinking about Mother Nature this Mother’s Day!

Posted by DARINA GRANIK

After celebrating Earth Day and looking forward to Mother’s Day, it is about time we discuss Mother Nature and how we can help her. Scrolling through social media, filled with past travels and one-wear #ootds, it seemed like the meaning of Earth Day was misinterpreted and lost. This is why we have to take actions in order to protect our Mother Nature from disastrous climate change and destruction. In this month's blog post, we will discuss how we can easily do it and what role companies like Lux Second Chance play in this.

The Gifts of Love (and Luxury) 😍

The Gifts of Love (and Luxury) 😍

Posted by TESSA HALL

Get out your finest reds and pinks, your cheesiest pickup lines, and your cliché date ideas, because it’s that time of the year again boys and girls: Valentine’s Day! Or maybe we should use the more inclusive alternatives, Galentine’s Day or Palentine’s Day. Whatever which way you decide to celebrate February 14th, whether it’s love-theme or anti-love theme (see Jessica Biel’s character from the 2010 film, Valentine’s Day, as inspiration), you can always do it with fun and colorful style, killer gift ideas, and the ultimate excuse to “treat yo-self” or someone you love!

Gold and Stocks vs. Investment Bags: We Put It to the Test!

Gold and Stocks vs. Investment Bags: We Put It to the Test!

Posted by DIANA NGUYEN

They say money can’t buy happiness, but I truly believe those that say that have never held a brand new Chanel quilted handbag in their hands. The feeling you get from owning luxury is a feeling that cannot simply be put into words. However, owning luxury is only the tip of the iceberg; making money off of owning luxury is the cherry on top!

If you’re a well-informed fashionista, then you’ve definitely heard the term “investment bag” thrown around from time to time. Even if you are aware of this concept, you may not be familiar with the difference between the two types of “investment bags”.
