Bag Lady.

If I have a weakness for anything, it would be handbags. I’ve mentioned this to you guys a long time ago, but I literally love handbags. It’s the one thing I definitely save up for and splurge on. I feel like it does make all the difference to have and carry a nice designer bag.

I’ve collected a few of my favorite classic ones from different designers but always dreamt of having a Chanel 2.55. This vintage beauty is definitely a classic bag that all women need!

Save up and splurge! It’s definitely your investment piece. You won’t regret it. I promise.

Or… visit your nearest thrift stores and/or flea markets. They sell vintage designer pieces for more than half the price. I know I’ve bought a couple of vintage Gucci bags at my go-to flea market on Sundays. Make it an adventure to visit flea markets in hunt of a vintage designer bag! Don’t stop until you find one…. Good luck! xo

    Absolutely agree, bag is definitely the spotlight in an outfit (in my opinion). And Chanel is just a classic piece that will never be out of style, and what’s great about Chanel bags is that their value will never decrease. xo

    I totally understand your obsession with bags. I have it as well and a vintage Chanel has been on my list for a long time.

    I too love to save up and then splurge on luxury arm candy, I see it as investing in excellent quality that looks a picture of perfection. This beauty is gorgeous, definitely a classic.

    I completely agree with you. A good handbag really makes a statement. Unlike shoes, they do not get dirty or worn out as easily. It is my ultimate prime accessory and I also do save and splurge on one good piece.

    Nothing better than a classic Chanel <3

    Great advice! A fantastic bag will be an investment which will forever be stylish. And it’s too bad I’m a shoes gal….but I’m working on transitioning as bags are more timeless!

    I love handbags as well but I’ve never had the desire to splurge on them though. Instead I go for more inexpensive ones so I can switch them out. An acquaintance of mine once said that every girl should have a Louis Vuitton bag as she strutted around with her fake one…that just irks me. If you can score a designer bag for a great bargain or have the money for a real one, by all means go for it! But don’t judge when others don’t (not saying you do btw; I was just speaking in general!).

    I think a Chrnal bag is definitely every girl’s dream, I will probably go for the vintage option as well, besides vintage makes everything more special !

    Hello girl,

    I really enjoy looking and reading at your blog but today I saw a mistake on it and I just wanted to mentioned it to you. The bag that you have is not a 2.55 but a Timeless. I work for this House so I needed to correct that.
    Also it’s a really beautiful bag, but you always buy beautiful things.

    Have a nice weekend.

    xoxo…

      Thanks for the comment Isabelle, I thought I was the only one noticing that it’s not a 2.55 but a vintage flap bag ;)
