Alice Just Got Her Dream Bag (Again)

Hermes Red Evelyne Bag

I had been lusting after the latest bag of my dreams, a Red Hermes Evelyne PM, for sometime. And so, I put our Director of International Acquisitions on the case. She came up with a beauty in mint condition at a great pre-owned price. It suits my busy lifestyle and small frame perfectly.

Getting the Evelyne got me thinking about where my obsession with luxury handbags started. It began on a trip to Italy on my first vacation with my yet to be husband, Jonathan. I was smitten by a small red quilted lambskin bag in an exquisite leather goods shop just off the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. I can still recall that a small bag was all I could afford and I ended up choosing a red one – my favorite color. I now wear this bag infrequently, but when I do, I invariably get a compliment. I still love it as much as I did when I first laid eyes on it.

My other vivid memory of our trip to Italy is that Jonathan had not yet figured out that I needed coffee in the morning before I could do anything. This led to a few tense moments initially, but he is a fast learner. Now when we travel together, he usually gets up early to exercise and brings me a coffee in bed when he returns.

So, all these years later, here I am, an online retailer of preloved designer handbags. Now there is an entire team dedicated to making dream bags happen for other women. Just let us know if we can help you find your dream bag, and consider using our layaway plan to make that big purchase just a little more affordable.

And by the way, I'm keeping both of my red bags and my man!
