Finding the Perfect Bag
When I want to treat myself, I almost always go for a handbag. What’s not to love? A beautiful handbag is sure to elevate any ensemble. Just like the cherry on top of a cake, the impact of a great bag can instantly make your look even more glamourous. Yes, even with just jeans and a basic tee! The world of handbags can be overwhelming at first, but this guide is the place to start, and you’ll be able to find that perfect bag in no time.
Looking for a certain shape?
Looking for a certain size?
Brands such as Louis Vuitton and Goyard use French abbreviations to indicate the sizes of their handbags. Ooh la la!
PM – Stands for Petite Modele, which is French for “small model”, and means that the bag is the smaller size in the range.
MM – Stands for Moyen Modele, which is French for “medium model”, and means that the bag is the medium size in the range.
GM – Stands for Grande Modele, which is French for “large model”, and means that the bag is the larger size in the range.
Length: The length is measured from the base, and across the front of a bag.
Width: The depth of the handbag which is measured from the side of the bag.
Height: The height is measured from the base to the very top of the bag.
Strap Length: The length of the strap from end to end, when laid on a flat surface. This measurement is used for handbags with longer straps.
Handle Drop: Measured from the top edge of a bag, to the underside of a handle. This measurement is used for handbags with short handles.
Looking to trade-in?
If you are looking to rehome your beautiful bag, then you have come to the right place. Trade in your designer bag, and you will have the option to use the store credit on that bag we know you’ve been eyeing. We love to purchase brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Gucci.
