Fashionphile is a great place to find luxury pre-loved items. They have perfect descriptions and photos of their items, and offer 100% authenticity guarantee. They also have a free layaway program! Put down a 25% deposit on the item and get 60 days to pay it off. I did the layaway option and paid off the item after a couple weeks.
After they shipped out my item I got it within two days via Fedex. They are based out of California and so am I, so the ground shipping was very quick. Their packaging is super cute! Paper streamers and also a free nail file!
I was browsing their website and came across this Louis Vuitton Twice crossbody bag in the Empreinte Leather. It was a gorgeous color called Grape, and it was marked at a good price ($1095!) This bag was $1440 brand new, so I definitely got a savings. It’s also a discontinued style from LV, so you can’t even get it anymore! This particular bag was listed in excellent condition, the only wear being ‘faint scratches on hardware.’ Which I can totally live with. It also came with the original box and dust bag!
It actually came today, and I’m in love! It smells brand new like leather, and there is literally no wear at all. Definitely feels like I got a brand new bag! This style was from 2015, and I feel it has been in the box since then. Great for me!
The color is between a purple and a fuchsia, it’s a nice pop of color but not too much. I really wanted a fun colored bag as well as a subtle Louis Vuitton empreinte bag in my collection, and this one is perfect! With most empreinte bags being over $2000, I feel I got an excellent deal on this one!
This is my first Louis Vuitton empreinte piece, and I really love the feeling of it! It’s soft, but you can also tell it’s sturdy and durable leather.
The bag has two main compartments, along with the hidden middle compartment (which pretty much sold me on this bag). I love the different compartments on this bag and the design. It’s definitely a good essentials bag!
A lot of people compare this bag to the Pochette Metis, because of the similar shape and design. The Metis is definitely a bit bigger and wider, but they do have a very similar look with the envelope style and different compartments.
Fashionphile attaches their tags to the bag, and if removed you can no longer return it. Since I did the layaway program, they would have charged me 10% of the bag’s price for a return fee. But I’m keeping the bag either way, I really like it!
They also include the certificate of authenticity, and also information about the item and what it comes with.
Fashionphile also buys your luxury items! Send a quote through their website and they get back to you very quickly. They will even buy back the bag you purchased from them at 70% of the purchase price.
Overall, I’m really happy with my purchase from Fashionphile! I’m relieved there were no issues in the process and I was able to score a basically new bag for a great deal! They add new luxury items daily, you can literally just browse for hours on their website! Be sure to check them out here.
