"I’ve been looking for a new Karl approved handbag for some time. I bought one years ago from Portero, an online luxury reseller that specializes in authentic bags and jewelry at incredible prices (check out this video guide of buying a classic bag). I couldn’t afford a new Chanel at the time, and wanted a classic quilted 2.55 with gold hardware, and found a nearly new one for under $2000.”
