Last September, I purchased a Dior Saddle Bag after noticing a handful of influencers toting around the early-aughts accessory during fashion month. To tell you the truth, I can count the number of times I've actually worn it out on only one hand. In fact, now that the French luxury house has decided to re-release its Saddle Bag, along with an extreme marketing scheme on Instagram, I've decided to flip my vintage version for some extra cash.
But here we are again: Another fashion month is underway, and street style has convinced me to want a new handbag yet again. This time around, it's a black bucket bag from Charles & Keith. I noticed the item on some of my favorite influencers during London Fashion Week, including Tamu McPherson, Yoyo Cao and Erika Boldrin, and I instantly fell for its cool croc-inspired texture and gold hardware. Sure, these "coincidental" placements were probably the result of low-key influencer marketing. But that won't stop me from signing up for email notifications for when the bag is back in stock. Chances are, I'll have some resale money to spend anyway.
