Ben Barry, the character played by Matthew McConaughey in the chick flick How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days said that “a woman’s purse is her secret source of of power.” In a way, I agree to that statement. We, women, besides keeping all our important stuff in our handbags uses it too as an accessory to compliment our outfits, to look good thus boosting our confidence. But I’m sure you’re all aware that buying the perfect bag is not easy as it sounds to the opposite gender because there are so many things to consider before you make bag investments. So if you’re thinking of buying a new bag again, you may consider these handbags with the best resale value according to the analyzed data of luxury consignment site TheRealReal.
Chanel Boy Bag

Chanel bags are often spotted on street style photos and countless fashion bloggers. You may be expecting that the classic Chanel quilted bag will be the top 1 handbag with the best resale value but actually its younger sister -or rather its younger brother- holds the #1 spot. Chanel Boy Bag (both small and large) are often seen carried by it girls most especially on super blogger Chiara Ferrgani.
Louis Vuitton Neverfull Bag
Average resale value: 80 percent of $1100
In terms in design, honestly, I don’t find Louis Vuitton’s Neverfull Bag that attractive compared to other “it bags” but I admit it’s very functional and versatile. Maybe that’s the reason why it is the second handbag that has the best resale value. Plus, the need for this kind of chic and roomy all-around-bag is a must in every women’s closet especially during summer.

Hermes Kelly Bag

This one is classic and loved by many like it girls Chiara Ferragni and street style star Miroslava Duma. This bag has been around for a very long time and has a history linked to a real-life princess. It is called “Kelly Bag” because it was the bag that Princess Grace of Monaco (aka Grace Kelly, the actress) used to cover her baby bump whenever she got photographed during her first pregnancy. Fast forward to 2015, it is still one of the best selling handbags in the world and has a best resale value. Seriously, whenever this bag appears in a consignment shop it gets sold quite fast.
