My very first Chanel bag. I’ve dreamed about owning one for so long! Just like with many other girls, I always wanted to have one. I didn’t really anticipate on getting one “so soon” though, but I guess you can’t always plan everything. I thought I would get the classic flap bag, but then I decided not to. My mother-in-law owns that bag, and it’s stunning, but it’s also (I assume) the most sold Chanel bag aka not very original. Now I’m well aware of the fact that you don’t buy these classic bags to be original, but I figured, since I already have a classic Saint Laurent bag (lucky me!), I’d opt for a slightly less obvious version. This model is very similar in many ways, just different enough to be interesting. That might have something to do with the color too. I didn’t own a beige bag before I got this one, and have used it so often ever since I got it. It’s vintage, which for me only adds character to a bag. I’m not sure if I’d ever buy a new Chanel bag, I love the fact that it has been used before and found a new owner. There’s more of a story to it I guess. Anyway, MY VERY FIRST CHANEL. Pinch me please! It’s so pretty, my new baby! I’m already thinking about what little sister I should add next: any tips?
Work hard, play hard, no? It’s not a common thing to get a bag like this, obviously, but when you do get/buy one – you might as well enjoy it right? Anyway, this outfit was shot just before #NYFW started, on a location I don’t think I ever shot before. I stayed at a hotel nearby, check out which one here, and we captured this preppy look just after our morning coffee in Madison Square Park. New York always makes for the prettiest background to take photos, can I go back please?
