Great New App

Good Morning Ladies!

I have great news! There is a now an app to determine authenticity of our designer handbags! We have one more resource to insure authenticity of the bags that we get at Swap Couture. This is great, because that is definitely an issue for some members.

Every handbag that Swap Couture receives goes through a process. We use our expert knowledge, store personnel, online videos, and we send pics to the manufacturer. We do it all! Adding the app feature insures more accuracy!

We do not accept fake bags under any circumstances.

Have a great day!

Welcome to Swap Couture

Today is a great day at Swap Couture! We are getting members daily, bags are moving quickly. We are excited. Please view our bags, and swap with us!

We are having a photo shoot in approximately 1 week for changes on the website. The pics from the photo shoot will be posted on FB, twitter, and instagram. Of course they will be here as well. I am so excited about Swap Couture's growth.

Thank you for visiting our website!

Almost a year!

I have not posted in almost a year. Swap Couture has gotten a few new members lately. We have made some changes to the website, we have new bags, and new members. We are excited and ready to go! Thanks for visiting the website.


I haven't been here for a while. I will be having the Meet N Greet real soon and will get to meet a lot of folks in person. That is exciting.

I posted a fashion quote yesterday and so many people got in contact with me thru liking it or letting me know via text that it was really cute. Let me know what you think.

Good Morning Ladies!

I had such a busy day yesterday, and my 4 year old was home, I decided not to post anything. I really did not have time.

This week I will feature a bag that I have gotten some comments on recently. It is great for fall and is a part of the Basic Membership for $49.99! I so love what I do and I know there will be a time when this blog is looked at by many.

Enjoy this fabulous day!



Yesterday I asked which is fake and which is real. I asked that questions because you need to know.

Companies have gotten bold they advertise as factory outlet prices, discounted, sold at wholesale, but all are selling fake items. Louis Vuitton does not mark bags down. They do not sell wholesale.

At Swap Couture we have several measures in place to insure authenticity.

The bag on the left is fake.


Happy Hump Day!

I have been so inspired lately and that makes me want to inspire you.

I am happy to communicate with everyone daily. Our conversations are not about bags only, but about life, the good and the bad. If I can help someone feel better by providing them with a great bag that elevates them, I am happy to do so. Swap Couture does work a certain way, but if you want a particular bag, I will do my very best to provide you with it! My intent is to elevate your bag collection with a swap!

All of our bags are authentic. Some are new and have not been carried. Provide us with a bag that you wont miss that is in good condition. We will elevate you with a nicer bag. You will swap up or bag up. I want you to walk away feeling better and sometimes a bag will do it.

Enjoy your day!

Good Morning!!

I was busy all weekend answering questions, which is a good busy. I will explain here on my blog why you should become a member of Swap Couture.

I started Swap Couture because of my love for designer handbags. I have so many and I have given so many away, so I thought there has to be something more creative to do with these great bags.

The first thing you do is join. Joining Swap Couture allows you to swap as often as you like for 1 year. By swap I do not mean borrow or rent. I mean you give Swap Couture a bag and you get a bag in return. One month later, you have a bag from Swap and maybe you are tired of it. You can turn it back in for something else, maybe your bag or maybe not, because someone else may have yours. Also, you can send in as many bags as you like, you will get the same amount of bags back. For instance a member sent in 2 bags, a Brahmin bag and a LV Boulogne bag. She swapped them for a Michael Kors and Gucci respectively. She says she loves them and does not want to swap again, not those bags anyway, but she could if she wanted to. Another member gave me a small D&B and received a MK tote. A few months later, she gave me back the MK tote for my Bally bag. She also gave me a MK bag for a Brahmin with a matching wallet. She likes a variety. Both members paid $99.99

The different categories were established so that we wont end up with a lot of lower end bags. You cannot send in a $200 bag and get an $800. Even if you sent in 4 $200 bags, we still would not be balanced. The good news is that you can and should swap up! You can send in a $200 bag and receive a $499 bag! So you see you can elevate your swap, or bag up!

We also established different membership plan.. Some bags are very low end, maybe for your child's first bag. The lowest membership is the Basic Membership for $49.99. The category for the Basic membership is category Simple and Sweet. This category allows you to swap bags less than $200. You can dig deep in your closet, pull out your first coach and swap it for one of these bags, maybe for a gift for a child or a tween! The membership that is $99.99 is the Premium membership. It consists of the Chic category, which allows you to swap bags that are between $200-$499. So if you have an old Coach or Dooney and Bourke that you may want to swap for a MK or another of the same kind just newer, you want this membership. You pay $99.99 and swap away. The next category is the Classic category. This category belongs to the Elite Membership which is $199.99. You can swap for bags that retail for $500-$999, which means you can swap a nicer Coach or MK that you paid maybe $500 for for a Gucci or LV that retails for $900! You are elevating your swap, bagging up or swapping up! The amazing thing is that you can swap as often as you like, which is why there is an annual fee. Lastly, is the Celebrity category, which is an Exclusive membership for $399.99. These bags are $1000 and over. You can swap a bag for $1000 for a bag for $2000! Imagine swapping your old Louis Vuitton for another Louis Vuitton that is $1000 more! You have elevated your bag collection. Even if its an even swap as far as price goes, you can swap multiple bags. Being a member allows that.

Oh yes, another important feature, some of the bags are brand new! Where can you get a brand new $1000 bag for $399.99? In a sense, we are giving you $600 for your used bag and no one does that! I was told that at one time a major dept store gave customers $50 on their bags. We are doing much better than that. Even if the bag you get from us is not brand new, it is in great condition. I will continue to say that you can swap several bags, but you pay a once a year membership fee. I just thought of another example. If you have a Premium membership and you want to upgrade and swap as an Elite member, you simple pay an additional $100 and that allows you to swap in a higher category.

Because I love bags, and want you to have the bags you want, and I am the owner, let me know what you want. I will do my very best to accommodate you.

Enjoy your day!
