I just wonder, when do they stop and think that enough is enough when it comes to their buying?


I also feel sad for Minnie, I guess her priorities are different from the average person.

Does anyone have recommendations for Youtubers or Instagrammers that share their luxury purses and achievable outfits?


LuxMommy is a good one. Very fashionable and stylish.


Thanks for the LuxMommy recommendation, watched some of her videos today and love that she adopted her sons - she seems like a nice lady.

Lol, I think they’re all pretty flawed just based on all the GG threads I see about most of these Youtubers. I used to love watching TammyShops, SnapeHBP, and BJTaylor for bags, but they stopped making videos. I think Tammy took her channel down and now focuses on Instagram (?). I used to like MelSoldera and still watch her time to time for ideas but she’s done/does a couple things I don’t agree with and don’t sit well with me (for example, asking people to return their birthday gifts for her and instead give her money to buy her Birkin).

As for fashion, I like Karen Brit Chick, but she doesn’t really do anything purse related.


I really like BJTaylor too.

I didn't like how last year Tammy and SnapeHBP were constantly selling their stuff on Instagram to keep up with each new season of Chanel releases - it kind of put me off them... I haven't watched MelSoldera but based on what you mention she doesn't sound like someone I would like to watch - Karen Brit Chick's style is too cool for me 8-)

I am also open to suggestions for smaller Instagrammers to follow with good fashion sense and nice bags :)

I really liked BJ Taylor's videos. They were so informative and you could tell they were well thought out. She definitely added something. Did she have too many LV bags? Sure, but she seemed like she really enjoyed and used her items and she gave real excellent reviews.

Now these YouTuber's (Minks included) show off their new items in the guise of it being a review.

I had no idea that SnapeHBP and TammyShops well buying and selling so often. I was never a subscriber of Tammy, but I would watch her video from time to time. I used to be a subscriber of Snape's, but she started buying what seemed like random items just to keep up and based on what I saw in her videos she had a very drab wardrobe. The image (again much like Minks) just didn't fit the luxury persona they try to put out there.

I suspect WendysTheLovingFifty sells off items just as quickly.

She's not really an Instagramer, but she has a small YT channel. Lissy In The City she used to go by A Girl In Boston. She's older (mid 40's), and some of her fashion choices are not my cup of tea at all but she has a beautiful collection of bags and shoes. She comes from a lot of money but she has a full time job in finance and lives in NYC now. I find her pretty fascinating and she's always doing stuff.

Another one I like to watch is Tar Mar. She's not really luxury but she is all about fashion and her IG and YT channel are really good, imo.

Yes, Tammy was buying something and then a month later selling it. Agree her wardrobe is drab and not inspiring at all. It's hard to find Instagrammers like LuxMommy that have nice bags and a good fashion sense.

Wendy is the worst one, she cannot keep up with any of the other ladies. She buys something and less than a month later it's on sale. Every bag is her holy grail bag until she sees something else she can't afford.

So...a first impression on the Reissue Chanel. She refers to her Jumbo as the "was my holy grail" bag. Ummm...didn't she say that the LV multicolor was her HG? The one that she literally did not even wear one time?

It's confusing, but iirc she has said in previous videos that the Jumbo was her holy grail in addition to the MC White Speedy. It's hard to keep her wishlist straight because she keeps adding and removing things on it. I think the LV multicolor was first and then she added the Jumbo when she started getting into Chanel.

I'm still put off by her comment in a recent video that the Reissue will be her last black Chanel bag. I wouldn't be surprised if she added that new top handle Chanel bag in red sometime in the near future.

Oops, I guess the Coco handle is off the wishlist for now. I seriously thought she would buy it.

She still says that the Reissue is the last black Chanel bag she'll have; her next Chanel will need to have color.

Something is going on with her weight again. I've been watching here and there and sometimes I noticed her face and neck appears to be fuller/thicker. Fast forward a few videos and it's thin again. At first I thought it was my imagination, but if you pay close attention you can see how her weight is fluctuating from week to week.

I started noticing this a few weeks ago.

Something is off.

I don’t want this to sound mean, but perhaps she has a binging problem?

I started to notice the same thing as well.

I know when I pig out over the weekend my face looks more bloated.

Her latest vlog was boring. She seems awkward and uncomfortable vlogging like she doesn’t know what to say and she sounds so serious and sad most of the time. Very different from the Minnie in her sit down videos. Interestingly enough she doesn’t show herself in her home with Edward or getting ready with a cup of coffee and breakfast. She must be ashamed that her home doesn’t match the lifestyle she’s trying to portray. I’d have a lot more respect for her if she was honest about it instead of hiding it.

It’s weird that her husband doesn’t want to be in the vlogs, but he’s there the whole time talking to her and we can hear everything he says. Minnie says he’s too shy to be on camera, yet he was on camera in a silly Santa costume at Christmas. He must be really self conscious.

Watching her try on tops was awkward. The size medium was too tight across the boobs and shoulders and the large fit perfectly, yet she said it was “too flowy” around the waist. It’s supposed to be flowy around the waist! She just didn’t want to admit that she’s a size large on top. If she wants something more fitted then go for a different style — but she won’t because she’s meatier on top and she wants to conceal it which is fine, but you cannot wear a medium until you lose more weight in and around the chest.

She really has food issues. That was weird and I would have edited all that footage out. She went on and on about how she could only eat 1/4 of the food because of how filling the carbs were. Why even bring attention to it? Why not film yourself taking a bite of your burger and fries with a smile and be done with it?? She harbored on the food for too long and seemed unhappy and uncomfortable. It was a weird ending to an awkward vlog. She should stick to sit down videos, she does much better with those.

I'm probably going to hell for this comment but since it's a gossip site and all...

every time I see her videos on my YouTube feed now the song lyrics "so I made her the queen of my double wide trailer...." run through my head

I saw her trying on the tops and I thought exactly the same. The medium was a little too small, but the large fit perfectly. She's shopping at Express, not having tailored made blouses for goodness sakes. And she must LOVE that Saint Style top as we saw it twice during the vlog. Paired with different bottoms of course.

What was with those ugly ass Gucci shoes she tried on? Just because it has a label doesn't make it right. Those damn black mules looked like homemade bedroom slippers or a Christmas tree ornament....and don't even let me get started on the ones with the pearl embellishments. And who tries on one shoe...especially heels? Where they do that at?

I don’t think those shirts suit her build, they tend to work better on someone more flat chested.

I think she’s shopping at stores that are a little young for her. She should try Ann Taylor Loft, the cuts might work better.

She dresses like someone stuck in their early 20’s. She’s one of those people who is stuck in a time warp of when she probably looked her best for that era and has never progressed. The super long hair all one length, the makeup, the super short fitted shorts — all scream 15 years ago. It’s a very dated look on her. She might be intimidated to try a fresh more modern approach to her look. She looks the same from year to year since she started her channel like 8 years ago (I think).

She's just so fake to me now. In the latest vlog MM #183 someone asks a question regarding how to deal with friends who talk about other friends purchasing luxury handbags. The way that Minks answered that questions shows that she hit a nerve.

Oh yeah...that cold shoulder shirt she's wearing is horrible and looks terrible on her.

And is any question not a "fantastic or great question"?

It annoys me even more than before that she talks and speaks as if she's really into luxury and she's living in a trailer home. Sorry, but that's just so off putting.

Yes, she was getting quite wound up over the question about friends making fun of you for being into fancy bags.

My mom and I hate those cold shoulder shirts, we always say they look like they belong on someone in a trailer park.

What is with these so-called luxury collectors pushing these knock-off brand t-shirts by ellandemm? I don't think it's okay to promote t-shirts that are knock off from the brands that put in the hard work and money. In today's video Minks has on a t-shirt from ellandemm with J'adore displayed across the pocket. I know damn well J'adore didn't give ellandemm to include their brand on her merchandise. How is Minks ok with promoting this obvious rip-off?

Someone please explain this to me.

Apparently she's OK with a fellow YouTuber making knock-off aka fake luxury clothing apparel, but when it comes to the bags themselves or small leather goods then it's wrong.

She says she doesn't judge people who buy fake luxury goods ie; made in China, bitch, but 2 or 3 years ago when her friend said she wanted to buy a Louis Vuitton round coin purse from someone on Craigslist for like $40, Minnie insisted it had to be fake and went with her. Of course it was fake, but her girlfriend didn't care and bought it anyway and you could see that Minnie was trying to be supportive of her friend but she was judging her all the same. And then wanted to do a storytime/comparison video and asked said friend if she could borrow the fake coin purse to make a video.

I remember the video with the fake coin purse.

So she's just ok with wearing and promoting the fake Saint Laurent, J'Dore and LV stuff now? If that ain't trailer park mentality I don't know what is. It just proves that you can't by class or good taste. Mind you I wouldn't judge the average person out hear wearing fakes, but the average person isn't on youtube and other social media platforms touting themselves as luxury collectors.

ETA: I had to think about it for a moment. I'm not sure why I expect different from her. She's the same women who is pulling up to her trailer each day in her luxury BMW vehicle. Carry on.

I’ve pretty much stopped watching her at this point. I just can’t with her now that I know then type of life she lives. There are people I hate watch for fun, but with Minks it’s unbearable because I used to like her and I really think she’s a nice person.

I don’t judge anyone who isn’t rich because I am definitely far from it. That said, I live in a big California city and pay over $2k for a nice apartment that’s gated and in a secure neighborhood. I only have one Chanel and a couple longchamps and I don't drive a luxury vehicle. I can’t imagine living in a double wide driving a BMW SUV and having all those expensive things. Maybe her neighbors are nice and wouldn’t steal from her, but I’d have to wonder if they look out their windows and wonder why she spends so much.
