Chic on the Cheap: Céline

Chic on the Cheap

If Celine continues to prove one thing, it’s that bigger is basically always better. The brand’s masterfully marrying of bold, statement patterns and designs without sacrificing sophistication, there’s a reason this powerhouse has been selling out of four-figure handbags for almost seventy-five years. 

Below, I’ve rounded up my favorite secondhand Celine finds you can buy and still afford to eat this week! 

Remember!

  • I never recommend anything I wouldn’t buy myself, and I keep an eye on price to ensure the consignment price is significantly lower than the cost of buying new.
  • I double check Poshmark finds to ensure there are no obvious signs of overwear or damage.
  • Remember: Poshmark encourages offers, and you can often achieve a 20-30% lower price using this tool. It differs from eBay’s bidding system in that you will automatically be awarded the purchase if the buyer accepts your offer price. A seller can also counteroffer a different price, which you will be prompted to accept, counteroffer, or decline.
  • Search the product name in The RealReal before buying, if your purchase can wait. I’ve noticed if TRR has a lot of a certain product in stock, the products they received more recently higher than the items that have been in the system for a while.
