ebay-designer-deals-louis-vuitton-bag-review-the-double-take-girls-blogHello Friends!

We are back on the blog today with a review post that we get asked to do all the time! Lindsay and I decided it was definitely time to break down all the details on our most used Louis Vuitton and Tory Burch bags. So without further ado today’s post kicks off our very first LV Neverfull, LV Speedy and Tory Burch Fleming Bag review!

Before we get to all the review details, there’s another question Lindsay and I get asked all the time: Where is the most affordable place to buy designer handbags? This is a great question and the answer is actually pretty simple: eBay! Finding great deals on eBay is how we both started our collections years ago. After saving Christmas and birthday money, I purchased my very first Tory Burch {it’s a purple Robinson satchel which I still have to this day} bag at an incredible price on eBay. It was even new with tags and a dustbag!

Did you know that eBay has more than 89% of their listings that are Buy It Now? Also, more than 80% items are brand new!! People often think that it’s only an online destination for auctions of used goods and that’s just not the case! From clothing and shoes to sunglasses and purses – eBay has it all when it comes to designer items!

10 Reasons To Buy Your Next Designer Item on Ebay:

1. Variety // With hundreds of thousands of clothing, bags, shoes, etc. listings, there is an item for any budget and style. Start shopping their curated selection of designer handbags, shoes and more here!

2. Sold Out Items // Did you miss out on a sold out designer item months or even years ago? eBay is the best chance for you to find it! I had searched high and low for a pink Tory Burch Fleming bag a few years ago and finally found a brand new one that popped up on eBay. I was so excited!

3. Free Shipping // There are thousands and thousands of designer bags, shoes and clothing items listed right now that ship for free! We love that eBay also highlights sellers that ship with a 2 day shipping guarantee as well.

4. Buy It Now Option // We know people often don’t realize that eBay offers over 1 million Buy It Now listings. You don’t have to participate in an auction to get a great deal. For example I was able to score a gold Tory Burch cuff for 40% off retail without having to wait for an auction to complete. It arrived in three days too for FREE!

5. Return Option // There are so many sellers on eBay that offer free returns. When checking listings for what you want to buy, simply select the “returns” option if this is something important to you.

6. Seller Ratings // Did you know eBay provides seller ratings and reviews? This allows us to confidently shop for bags, shoes, clothing etc. from the best sellers without a worry.

7. Money Back Guarantee // Another reason we can confidently shop on eBay is because they have a fabulous money back guarantee. If what you purchased doesn’t arrive or doesn’t match the description provided by the seller, then eBay will give you a full refund.

8. Price Match Guarantee // Did you know the eBay Price Match Guarantee promises if you find a product in eBay Deals for less at select competitors, eBay will mach the competitors online price.

9. Focus On Fashion // Did you know that eBay is an exclusive outlet for top-tier labels for items ranging from shoes and bags to clothing and jewelry? We love that they cater to trendsetters that want to look runway-ready without breaking the bank. Why pay full price when you don’t have to?

10. Authenticity Guarantee // Did you know that eBay offers an authenticated luxury program for select sellers that have opted in? You can find out all about their authenticity program and money back guarantee here.This guarantee is why we never worry about buying designer bags and shoes from eBay. You can read all the details on this program here!

Now it’s time for our handbag review!

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Review {MM size}

After owning the Neverfull style for several years now, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most popular LV styles available! This style of bag comes in three prints {Damier Ebene, Damier Azur and Monogram} and in three sizes as well. Here are the dimensions for each size:

PM {small} // 11.4 in x 8.7 in x 5.1 in
MM {medium} // 12.5 in x 11.5 in x 6.5 in
GM {large} // 15.6 in x 12.8 in x 7.9 in

We each picked out the MM size because I feel like it’s the perfect midsize tote bag. The MM fits all our stuff without the bag being too large. We have heard the GM is amazing to travel with. Lindsay actually as the GM Neverfull in the Monogram print on her next to purchase list, as it will make a great daily + baby tote bag! 🙂 On the PM size, we rarely see this size out and about it seems. If you have either of these sizes we’d love to hear what you think about them. Below I am using the Neverfull MM in the monogram print.

Here are the 3  sizes of Neverfull totes to shop below!

The Neverfull MM is the most versatile designer bag in our collections! While it only has one interior pocket you can find some great organizers for the Neverfull tote HERE.

Louis Vuitton Speedy Review {30 & 35}

Now for another classic Louis Vuitton Bag: the Speedy! This is actually the very first pre-loved LV bag that I purchased. The size of the Monogram print is size 35 and the Damier Azur is size 30. We do really enjoy both bags. However we would say it’s more of a date night bag because we both carry a lot of stuff on a day to day basis.

If I had to purchase only one size over again, it would definitely be the 35. The 30 is a tad small and it’s a little bit more challenging to get your wallet, phone, keys etc. out in a hurry. But it is still a wonderful bag. In the picture above you can see the comparison between the size of the Speedy 35 and Neverfull MM.

Speedy 30 // 11.8 in x 8.2 in x 6.6 in

Speedy 35 // 13.7 in x 9 in x 7 in

You can find lots of base shapers and organizers for this bag style here! We definitely suggest getting a base shaper so your bag doesn’t sag. This style is prone to doing that but thankfully it’s an easy fix.

Tory Burch Fleming Bag {Small & Regular sizes}

Now if you are more of a Tory Burch girl, then this is the review for you! We get so many questions about the Fleming bag style and if we like the small or the original size better. A few years ago when we first purchased the Fleming style, there was really one main size. However in the last few years Tory Burch came out with an updated style that is available in regular, small and mini. We own both the small and the original which are shown here in the photos!

Both sizes are great, but they definitely do different things. The small size is better for going out/date nights and can only hold a few things. It’s a great small bag and looks good on everyone. However if you plan to use this bag for daily use and need to be able to fit more items in it like a full-size wallet, then we would definitely suggest getting the original size.

The leather is durable and we love that the chain strap can be doubled up to go on your shoulder. Our favorite way to wear it is across the body. It’s such a classic bag and will be popular for years to come! We’ve found several other Fleming bags in a range of colors to shop HERE.

Well that’s a wrap on our very first designer handbag review post! Don’t forget to shop the amazing authenticated designer bag deals here on eBay! If you have any questions about picking out a new handbag {or other item} on eBay we are more than happy to help! Just leave us a comment below or email us at TheDoubleTakeGirls@gmail.com.

Thank you all so much for stopping by our blog today! We hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.

    I’m always a bit worried about buying designer goods off eBay, but I’ve found that most Japanese sellers are selling genuine goods. I really try and be careful and do my research though because there are so many bargains on there!

    Great post!! I’ve always wanted to buy designer bags from Ebay but I was afraid of the authenticity. Now I know that they have a great money back guarantee policy if the product is not authentic. Thanks for sharing this valuable piece of info.

    I keep reading more and more about how people are buying their designer items (especially handbags) on eBay, and I’m really interested in doing it too! I still have yet to own a designer bag, so that would be so cool!

  9. May 10, 2019 / 4:00 pm

    Oooh, good call, getting designer bags on EBay! I’ve had good luck on RealReal as well!

  10. May 13, 2019 / 1:50 pm

    I love your outfits and all those bags!! They’re all super versatile and great investment bags. I love shopping eBay for designer items but haven’t ever bought a bag through them. I do love that they have authentication now too!

    xo, Laura
