Pre-owned Louis Vuitton Speedy – Fashionphile Review

I’ve been itching to add an another Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas bag to my collection. I have also been wanting to go the pre-loved route. After much thought, I decided to go to with a Speedy Bandouliere 35 from FashionphileClick here to view my unboxing on IGTV.

Why pre-love?

There’s a lot of factors that came into play:

  • Louis Vuitton’s quality has not been great recently (in my opinion)
  • Potential for significant savings
  • Bigger selection of bags (including discontinued items)
  • Flexibility to choose a brand new item or one that has aged beautifully



When purchasing a luxury item from the secondary market, you HAVE to do you research about the seller. I decided to go with Fashionphile because they provide:

  • Detailed descriptions of bags – they are overly critical with the details of the condition (major plus)
  • Plenty of pictures
  • You can make payments with their Layaway plan
  • Email notifications to alert you when your favorite item decreases in price!!
  • 100 % authenticity guaranteed for the lifetime of the item purchase

What had happen was, I couldn’t sleep one night so I started browsing Speedy B’s on Fashionphile. I love that I was able to narrow down my search by type of bag, condition & price. I had completely forgotten about the bag I ‘Favorited’ when I received an email saying the price had dropped!

I noticed there was a layaway option and went with that. The initial payment must be at least 25 % of the price. They give 60 days to pay it off.


Things to Keep in Mind

Two things I want you to know is the shipping time can take a few days. I feel like it made a lot of stops before getting to my house. Also, a signature is required at delivery. So make sure you or someone are either home or send it to your job.

I am in LOVE with my new (to me) Speedy B. It had just enough patina and the vachetta strap was so comfortable. The description said there was a “musty odor” but that was not the case. It just had a slight smell like it had been stored for a while. If you are thinking of going through Fashionphile,  go for it! Let me know if you have any questions!

XO, Em
