Vintage Chanel…beyond the 2.55

I too am dreaming of owning my very own perfectly formed Chanel handbag one day. I came close to it on our holiday but choked when I couldn’t decide exactly what I wanted (so many amaaaazing choices – how to choose?) and was also plagued by my guilty conscience (i.e. my husband) reminding me how much I’d already splurged on other purchases.

I’m actually intrigued by all the non-classic forms of handbag Chanel have released over the years. Take this bright red creation for example…There’s something so appealing about a flippantly boyish yet luxe backpack, so many crazy and contradictory ideas combining to make one awesome product.

I also have a penchant for the weirdly shaped ones that make you do a double take because you initially think that it couldn’t be Chanel but the exquisitely quilted lambskin and of course that undeniable logo tell you another story. See? You didn’t think Chanel could be “funky”, did you?

And finally, to mix things up even more, why not check out something that’s not in lambskin? Fancy a picnic with your very own wicker Chanel bag? Or conjure up 1950s glam with a wee bakelite tortoise evening bag? Vintage Chanel is a whole other world to explore (don’t even get me started on their vintage earrings – I may not surface for days!) that I can get lost in for hours…Does anyone else have the same unhealthy obsession as me? If so, let me know in the comments below! Help me prove to my husband that I’m not the only one!
