#MYHANDBAGSTORY UPDATE

With the #myhandbagstory campaign in full swing, and your fabulous stories coming in thick and fast, we thought we would share some of the stories that have come in so far! If you have yet to enter take a look at some of the fabulous entries, at the bottom of this post, as inspiration for your story – it is super simple and there is still time to enter!

If you are a little unfamiliar with our campaign here is a short explanation and details of how to enter…

Here at Chic&Seek it is no secret that we LOVE our accessories, and with such fabulous back-stories to so many of our pre-owned products, it got us thinking… What’s your story?! We are fascinated to discover more about the connection we have as women to our handbags, as they intrinsically link to who we are and what we do. Every bag has a unique story – where you were, when you bought it, the memories it triggers, the part it plays in your everyday life – the list is endless!

We are looking for those handbag stories, accompanied by a picture of your special bag from women all over the world. The overall favourite story will win a mint condition vintage Louis Vuitton ‘Noe’ bag, worth over £1000, and a £50 voucher to spend at http://www.chicandseek.com.

I fell in love with this handbag at my local consignment shop and waited over 3 months to buy it! It's my favorite handbag I own and I love to pair it with everything. Wearing it just makes me happy and the pattern reminds me of my hometown, Miami. I think of it as my little piece of the tropics while living in North Carolina #myhandbagstory

My Mulberry Bayswater is extra special to me as I bought it in London, Xmas 2010. I was supposed to be in NYC but we couldn't fly because of the bad weather so to cheer myself I caught a tube to Kensington and splurged to flight cost in the Mulberry flagship store. I'll always love this bag. #MyHandbagStory

My Mary Katrantzou x longchamp bag, I take this bag on holiday as it's lightweight, it sees all my holiday destinations and it reminds me of them when I'm back in England and it's raining! #MyHandbagStory

My crocodile clutch was bought in a charity shop whilst I was a student on a student budget. It has been twirled around dance floors, covered in beer at gigs and (almost) left in a taxi! Although I now have a proper job and a slightly bigger budget for bag buying, my crocodile clutch still remains my faithful companion for late night adventures. #MyHandbagStory

I'd wanted a classic Chanel bag for as long as I could remember. When I graduated I decided I would ask for money instead of gifts so I could save up for one. When that wasn't quite enough, I thought long and hard (for a couple of minutes) and decided to sell my car to fund the rest!! Getting hold of the right bag was a challenge in itself, but when I finally had it in my hands I knew I'd made the right choice. I love it just as much now as then and it will always be extra special to me.
