Another Chanel treat

Hello everybody!!!

Thanks a lot for the feedback on yesterday's post and since you loved the Chanel scarf I thought I'd share with you another one of my Chanel treasures. First, a bit of history about Chanel bags. I HATE hearing people say 'I'd like to buy the classic chanel bag' meaning the CC logo one...

This is NOT the bag that Coco created. The CC is a later addition by Karl Lagerfeld to revamp the brand! The classic bag looked a bit more like this:

The point is that you did not need to have the logo on as the distinguishing feature was the chain!!!
So now that I've set the record straight let's have a look at this VINTAGE beauty...

What do you think guys? I know it's not the classic bag but I love it because I have never seen another one like it and when I wear it I am sure I will be the only one in the room with that particular model! I ususally wear this bag with jeans and a cream shirt...Simple!
Just a little piece of advice...always check the authenticity of the bag you are purchasing! This can be easily done by going into your local Chanel branch where they will send it to Paris for you to receive a certificate!
I look forward to hearing from you.
