|My pre-loved pochette from 2001|
I think the pochette accessoires is the best piece to start a Louis Vuitton 'collection'. And even if you already have other bags, I think this thing is an amazing addition. You can use it as a make-up bag, a clutch, a cross-body or as an extra pocket inside your bag.
I bought an extra chain you can purchase on eBay to wear it cross-body and I would certainly recommend it.
|With the chain|
A while ago, I bought a pre-loved pochette on eBay and loved it right away. I was planning on selling the older one so that I could get myself a new one of which I would know I could use it for years and years. I also like the fact that the new model of the pochette has an extra pocket inside, and that the leather strap is longer. I did sell my pre-loved one, but I have yet to buy a new one. I will explain the reason why in another article.
But here are some pictures of my pre-loved pochette. I never really used the old leather strap on it because I thought it was too fragile, so I just used my chain to wear it cross-body. Without the chain I used it inside of my bag as an extra compartment.
I also have a mini pochette and if I had to choose between both pochettes, I would go for the pochette accessoires. It just fits more and therefor is a bit more versatile than the mini pochette. I have seen many raving reviews about the mini, but I found that it's a bit too small for me. The current LV prices for the pochettes aren't that far apart and I think the larger pochette makes up for the price difference. So if you're thinking about getting one, I'd say: go for it!
