This post is dedicated to Ms. Neo who requested I post my Chanel bags. As you can see, I have a small, but loved, collection. As pictured from back to front: My two hobos. One with the traditional chain hardware and quilting and the other with a unique chunky pewter chain. I featured it once in a previous craving post. On the bottom row I have a beige classic 2.55 size (caviar). Finally, my newest addition. The black phantom bag known as the Chanel "So Black" (jumbo size/lambskin)
Funny story about the all black phantom, I was watching a series of Chanel collection videos on YouTube and one of them featured an all black bag in the smaller size. From that moment I knew I wanted one. At the time, Chanels with black hardware were out of season and not available in the boutiques. Day after day, I would check eBay listings hoping that one would show up.
Finally, someone listed one but the zipper was broken. I decided to let it go knowing that I would have one someday in the future. Then, over a year later, I just happened to be in Hawaii visiting their boutique and the very first thing my eyes land on is the all black phantom. I knew I was in trouble the minute I saw that bag. What I love most about this black beauty is not having to worry about whether I'm wearing gold or silver jewelry. This lovely beast goes with everything.
I'm going to slow down after I acquire the other two bags on my craving list. It won't happen for a while but I can't decide between the Chanel Boy Bag then the Balanciaga City Bag.
