10 Reasons You Should Not Hold Onto The Same Designer Bag

We all love designer bag shopping, growing our handbag collection and creating memories with them. However, it’s completely normal to fall out of love with a designer bag or simply just cash in your investment. After all, the demand and resale value for high-end brands like Hermès, Chanel, Louis Vuitton continue to rise exponentially over the years. 

So, if you’re wondering if you should sell your designer bag, here are some of the reasons you should sell your items.


1. You No Longer Wear It

If you haven’t worn the bag in over a year, then you no longer need it. Chuck out the items that are your least favourite and make some space for designer bags that are worthy of your collection. 


2. It’s Taking Up Space

While we love an extensive designer bag collection, there’s no point in keeping a bunch of designer bags that you’re no longer proud of. Selling your designer bags is a great way to declutter and keep a clean luxury wardrobe.


3. You Want To Add to Your Wallet

There’s no shame in looking bougie on a budget and selling your tired designer bags is a perfect way to make some extra cash and buy better bags.

What’s more, our state of the luxury market report is proof that designer bags are an excellent investment.

4. If It’s Not Your Style Anymore

If you had to rate your bag on a scale of 1 to 10–and it’s below 5, then you simply no longer see the value in it. Everyone’s style evolves over time, there’s no shame in admitting that the bag is no longer for you. After all, one fashionista’s old is another one’s gold.

5. You’ve Been Contemplating Selling It For A While

If you’ve been contemplating selling your luxury bag for more than 6 months, then it’s probably a sign that you should sell. Declutter your mind and your closet and get something that fits your current style.

6. You Constantly Have To Remind Yourself To Wear It

You should feel like you’re living your best life wearing a designer bag. If you constantly have to remind yourself to make use of an item, then you probably fell out of love with it. 

7. It’s Outdated

There are certain designer bags that can stand the test of time, while others don’t age well. Get rid of the handbags that are holding you back and use the extra cash to buy something more classy.

8. You Wouldn’t Repurchase It

If you could go back in time, would you still purchase that bag? If the answer is no, then you should definitely sell that bag because it might have been an impulse purchase. 

9. You Fear Wearing It

Yes, some people actually fear wearing their own handbags. Some of the reasons you might not wear your bag are because you know everyone else will be wearing it or you’re simply scared to damage it. If you got it, you should flaunt it. If not, you should definitely sell it off.

10. You Forgot About It

If you have a large collection, it’s easy to forget about some. So, if you haven’t worn the bag for 6 months to a year, then you should seriously consider getting rid of it because you no longer need it.
