Designer bags are called “investment pieces” for a reason. Unlike when it comes to shoes or clothes, these high-quality pieces don’t easily get worn out and can last up to a lifetime, especially when properly cared for (Heart Evangelista even once shared how she gets to wear her mom’s branded bags to this day). That said, if you’ve been meaning to treat yourself to a designer bag, it’s worth checking out what the wonderful world of “pre-loved” items have to offer, before you instantly drop thousands of pesos on that fresh designer buy. Because what’s not to love about owning a gently used luxury bag at a fraction of its original price?


Today, more and more celebs and influencers have been selling their pre-loved designer goods online—most of which are in mint condition! In fact, there are bags that they’ve only used once, and are being sold for less than P10,000. Since the options can be overwhelming, start shopping with our curated picks of secondhand handbags below:

Liz Uy

Charriol Pink Leather Chain Sling Bag

P8,000, available on Instagram

Every woman needs an evening bag, and this pink leather sling bag with a gold chain makes a dainty yet sophisticated addition to your collection. P.S. It was only used by Liz once, which makes it such a steal.

FN TIP: If a bright pink bag seems too flashy for you, take cues from the stylist and wear it with your neutrals or your LBDs to tone down its boldness.

Michael Kors Pink Tote Bag

P8,000, available on Instagram

This one’s roomy enough to store your kikay kit, planner, water bottle, and maybe even your laptop—it’s a strong (and stylish) everyday bag contender for the lady who carries her entire bedroom in her purse. Plus, by the looks of it, the tote bag is in tip-top shape!


Chloe Shoulder Bag

P20,000, available on Instagram

Look every bit the classy lady on your next brunch out with this shoulder bag that comes in a crimson red hue (suggestion: try matching it with a red lipstick!). It’s small yet roomy enough to store your weekend essentials.


Marian Rivera

Hermes Picotin Rubis

Price available upon request, available on Instagram

When you’re dropping thousands of your savings on a designer bag, you want to make sure that you’ll be wearing it in the years to come. This small luxury bag is simple, timeless, and lady-like. It has a slouchy look which gives the designer bag a casual feel, so it won’t look too polished for when you’re in your lazy white-shirt-and-jeans combo. But, it also wouldn’t look too laid-back for a formal get-together, thanks to its rich, burgundy hue.


Camille Co

Marc by Marc Jacobs Sling Bag

P7,500, available on Carousell

You’ll find yourself reaching for this sling bag whenever you’re headed for an after-work drinking session. Like a pair of blue jeans, it’ll pair well with almost everything in your closet.  

FN TIP: Leave this sling bag in your office desk so you’re prepared for any spontaneous inuman.


Georgina Wilson

Stella McCartney Black Bag with Stainless Strap

P10,000, available on Carousell

Roomy? Check. Black? Check. This Stella McCartney bag ticks all the boxes of an everyday work bag. This classic color makes it office-appropriate but its tasteful silver chain details allows you to add a bit of attitude (and character) to your office uniform.


Carolina Herrera Black Chic Bag

P10,000, available on Carousell

You can never go wrong with investing in a black bag—and it seems like Georgina thinks so too. This versatile crossbody bag can take you from weddings, reunions, Friday nights out, and beyond. We particularly love how its understated black hue makes the designer label’s iconic “CH” insignia standout! 


Bonus: We also found a classy Tory Burch wallet that is being sold by Patricia Prieto for P3,250:
