2.55 bag that has earned its reputation as the one and only bag for many, many years. These models of the Chanel bags have turned heads for more than half a century, earning a legendary reputation in the world of fashion.
I love the fact that it has perfect proportions with this simple yet so elegant design that never goes out of fashion. It appeals to all generations and looks good regardless of age and radiates a sense of intelligent luxury that I have loved from the very first time I laid eyes on these diverse models (when I was about thirteen years old). For me, it is just something about the look of it that gives that timeless feeling of impeccable style.
I had to choose between the softer lambskin that I have on my other Chanel bags and this more finely textured leather called "Caviar". I went for the Caviar in the end as you might have noticed. It is less sensitive and perfect for the everyday use that I intend it for. I also find it a stunning material for the eyes with its shifting shades of black and dark grey depending on your mouvements and also how the light reflects at that very moment.
That is also why I went for the biggest model offered but with a shorter chain. It not only needs to look good, but also has to be practical. I am a mother and a lady and both have different needs as soon as they leave home. The inside had to be more spacious in order to be able to carry all my things. I just happened to find it perfect for where I find myself in life at the moment. So now you know.
My motto is very often down to: "Buy quality, cry once ..."
