A Question About Chanel...



What is it about this particular bag that is driving people crazy? A good friend of mine hasn't had a decent meal in months saving up to get it...

It could be that you can see the brand, but it is not too gaudy.
Fantastic pic, as ever, my friend.

Yes, must have piece! :)

My Styleadvisor said...

I think we all have our cravings... and this one's a classic! Works with a dressed up or down look.

Rachel said...

I don't think I'd save up for it.. but I suppose it's just one of those timeless, elegant pieces! x

Thrift_Queen said...

Nadine Flatt said...

it's nice but wtf it isn't that special haha!

Dilan Dilir said...

I may be the only one,but I don´t like chanel stuff at all!

beesandbugs said...

All time classic :)

SabinePsynopsis said...

It's an icon! (but it's also a bit of a cliché... I think I'd rather eat).

Tanvi said...

It is the 'idea' behind it ... and very successful branding and marketing! :) I'd rather eat too!!!

The PvdH Journal said...

It is timeless. Chanel (like Hermes), has worked incredibly hard to not make it just another It-Bag.

Now about your friend, that is terrible! No fashion is worth giving up a decent meal!

chanel is the best

Vivi said...

I guess cause it's timeless. I don't really care much for Chanel. My sis, on the other hand, loves it! I mean, when it's worn together with a nice outfit, I compliment. But besides that, I just walk right past the store without looking in.

Lauren said...

I have to admit it's on my wish list of "investment" pieces too. It's truly a classic that I'll enjoy for years to come - assuming I can still afford to eat after I buy it!

nice shots!

Nadine2point0 said...

size brand simplicity ...
Saw a great knock-off in NY when I was there...not sure about the top one here :)?

L said...

It's so crazy how obsessed people get over it! I used to work at Saks and people would load up on them like underwear!

I'm afraid i'd rather buy a dress than dinner. Sad really. x hivenn

Gigi said...

This bag is just perfect for any occasion.

The Foolish Aesthete said...

Funny, like the time long ago when I squeezed my feet into Chanel sling backs on sale like Cinderella even when my feet were too big (and I still bought it). Your subjects styled around their Chanel purses beautifully! xx

amy b.s. said...

honestly, i'm not sure. and it seems you see it everywhere now, which makes it less appealing to me anyway.

mermaid gallery said...

i would rather eat well!..it is lovely but not big enough for me!....and not unique enough either.....

Anna-Lena said...

I love your blog!! Amazing pics and i love chanel! Have a nice evening! Hugs

Ellie said...

I guess it's more of the label than anything else! There are tons of bags that look just like it, but most people wouldn't stress over one of those!

Just been looking through your most recent posts, I absolutely love the one you did on 4th July, you really captured those peoples happiness!
I love that picture of the bag against the bright orange!

Underemployed said...

Dunno. The excitement about this bag is lost on me. I agree that it's probably a logo thing. I think if I were looking for that type of bag, I would be able to score something similar (and cuter) for a LOT less money!

Mani said...

I would starve myself to death to get my hands on her! :) It is a classic and timeless piece!

hugs and kisses by Mani.

FashionJazz said...

I think its because it is a really classic looking bag that appeals to everyone : )

Dith said...

Well it's a classy timeless piece.
But starving for monthS to get a chanel purse?
Um it is never that serious.

Fashionistable said...

Small yet beautifully formed. Xxxx

J'Adore Fashion said...

The bag is classic, timeless--just Chanel! :)

Love it!

Funny that you mention Chanel! My co-worker was just telling me how she is saving to get herself one.

This bags are classic! So I don't blame her.

elle marie said...

I think some classic brands are similar to buying a watch, it's a good investment and one that can be used for "money" if you need to pawn it later.. lol It's the classic-ness of the brand and their long standing that's so alluring.

The Cat Hag said...

I love my Chanel Jumbos, they are versatile, and go well with both casual and dressier outfits.

Hehe, so I'd totally understand why your friend is saving up for one. :)

Ms. Allee said...

Hahaha poor girl, I hope it's worth it!* I wouldn't starve myself to get it but yes, it oozes class and chicness!* A definite must have (if you can afford it)

whitney said...

This is such a classic and beautiful bag, but I personally would rather donate the money to charity. I'm just sayin'.

Rosa said...

i think the fact that the bag's style has been around for quite some time makes it a classic that everybody covets. aw your frd! it'll be such a happy day for her when she gets one :)

Ugandan girl said...

San said...

Don't ask me. I have never liked it and seriously wouldn't pay a dime for it.

because it's CHANEL it's classic, that's why. it's so beautiful, I wish I had a real one.

TOPCOAT said...

Like everyone else is saying here - classic, timeless, iconic, amazing. It's definitely an investment piece. It will NEVER be out of style or too overdone, and with it's amazing quality it's sure to last a lifetime, even more! xx

empan said...

answer: thanks. yours aswell

SunnyToast said...

Oh chanel...so classic!

Amy T said...

well to be honest i really dont get it.

Sharda Sewdien said...

very cute bag; the blazer also looks very beautiful.;)

briannelee said...

Ooooo, love the first image!

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

I have this bag. Purchased at Harrods over Ten years ago. I stopped wearing it. Every second girl in Paris has one - for me that's off putting. It's now at the back of my wardrobe. I prefer antique Chanel bags from my grandmother;-)

Gawgus things... said...

Ok, so I may well eat my words one day, but it doesn't really do it for me I'm afraid...Probably because I'll never be able to have it!

Miss Pepper Vintage♥ said...

Your pictures are so inspiring!!
Love the details..

polka dot said...

David, you're not alone in being mystified. I've always loved the classic quilt design - but let's face it, like Sabine said, I'd rather eat.

You just keep growing from strength to strength: it's a delight to come visit here. Hope you're well.

Shasie said...

Wow that's a serious savings there...um...I don't know what's so great about the bag. I mean it's nice, but to not eat?
