Enter Bella Bag: an online boutique featuring an awe-inspiring selection of authentic pre-loved designer handbags. I met owner, Cassandra Connors, over the holidays when I stepped into her Atlanta showroom, and boy was I amazed! Imagine a space with floor-to-ceiling shelving filled with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Dior and a covetable collection of brightly colored Hermes Birkin bags (stored carefully out of reach on the highest rungs, natch), all priced to move.
Truly impressed with the quality and selection in-studio, I asked to sit down with the fab handbag-ista (and savvy businesswoman and new mom!) to learn more about her booming business, how to select the best bag for your lifestyle, and #shopsmart tips for purchasing authentic luxury consignment. Read on!

Right now I'm carrying the Ultimate Soft Flap Hobo from Chanel, and inside my bag is the YSL Belle Du Jour Zip Around Wallet.
definitely a Chanel Classic Small Flap in Lambskin leather..shown here on Stacy Keibler with George Clooney. Love the look.
