This month, the face of Modaselle is Viktoriya – with a classic and timeless aesthetic, Viktoriya loves designer handbags, and has some wonderful insights to share with us! You can follow her on Instagram here.
I started with Instagram because it was a "cool new kid" on the block. So instead of posting on Facebook, I decided to journal my daily activities on Instagram. And it was so much easier, you just take a photo, add a short caption and its done. I love to share my journey with others, hoping to pass on some of the inspiration and if my followers wish, learn about their journey and get inspiration from them .
My favorite designer would always be Louis Vuitton. I love the story of the brand, it is inspiring and fascinating. Louis Vuitton opened his first store in Paris in 1854. Decades later, this brand withstood the test of time. Louis Vuitton designs are timeless and don't go out of style. The brand itself is one of the most reputable in the world. For example, all LV handbags are handmade. Therefore, the quality is immaculate.
People say accessories make the outfit and I couldn't agree more, especially if it is a luxurious handbag. However, the reasons to own a beautiful bag goes much further beyond what meets the eye. Designer handbags make every woman feel like royalty. I might protest inside, deep down, and say it is not the case - but I want to be that kind of woman. It is like the entire persona of our shifts and we are ready to take over the world. A handbag is a woman's companion, in good and bad times. The perfect shape and handcrafted hardware makes every outfit fabulous.
I am a huge believer that luxury handbags are an excellent investment. There is no way you can compare a bag to a depreciating car. Of course, not all designer bags have the same resale value. The value would be determined by howexclusive the bag is and its origin/designer. For example, Louis Vuitton Speedy Monogram Canvas bag or Chanel Flap have great resale value on the secondary market and both are the mostprofitable accessories brands in the world.
