If you follow her on Instagram, you'd see that Rei Germar loves rocking different designer bags in her OOTDs. More than just arm candy, however, the YouTuber considers these pieces as investments, which goes to show us how much thought she puts into purchasing many of them.

In her latest vlog, Rei displayed her updated bag collection, and even gave recommendations for aspiring collectors in between. So if you're looking for your first big purchase, check out her picks below for tips!

The Best Entry-Level Designer Bags, According to Rei Germar

1. Chanel Wallet on Chain

The Chanel Wallet on Chain is a classic piece that’ll never go out of style! According to Rei, it’s an entry-level Chanel bag that’s perfect for beginners, especially since its value continues to go up. This designer piece is great for many of us who are indecisive if we want a long or short strap since you can easily wear this purse in a crossbody style or turn it into a shoulder bag.

3. Balenciaga City Mini Bag

You can’t go wrong with owning a Balenciaga City Mini Bag. Despite its tiny size, Rei says that it’s actually able to fit a lot of things, making it the perfect go-to if you’re looking for a purse that can hold many items while not looking bulky. The City Mini also comes in different materials like crocodile skin or pebbled leather to choose from to best suit your personal style.

4. Goyard St. Louis GM Bag

Calling it the perfect everyday bag, Rei gushes about her love for the Goyard St. Louis tote! It comes in gorgeous colors ranging from the basic black, to bright yellows, and even such a lovely shade of blue that's impossible not to love. With its spacious size and durable Goyardine canvas in its iconic print, this is one investment piece that you’ll be using for years to come.

5. Hermès Evelyne

If you’re a first time Hermès buyer, a purse that Rei suggests to get is the Evelyn. It comes in different sizes that range from TPM, which is their smallest size, to the TGM which is the largest. Rei explains that what's great about the Evelyn is that they can be readily bought at any Hermès store, even if you don’t have a purchasing history with them!

6. Hermès Picotin

Another Hermès pick Rei has is the Picotin bag, which she actually finds it to be more stylish than the Hermès Evelyn. It’s a great everyday bag that can help you carry all your belongings with ease, and just like the Evelyn, allows you to buy it from the store without a purchase history. Another great thing about this bag is that for an Hermès piece, it has a reasonable price point compared to other luxury brands.
