Yes, I’m as guilty as charged. Ever since I accidentally stumbled onto online shopping 12 years back (Oh no, I sound so old now). I’ve been buying practically almost everything online. From household groceries to baby supplies and even dog food, I get it all online. So naturally when it comes to my clothes, shoes and accessories, you bet that they are mostly bought online too.
I love how technology has brought the fashion world closer to us, we no longer need to set foot out of the house to purchase another dress. Just go online, click and check out. It is that simple. In fact, with the Internet, you could just check out the latest trends and what’s Princess Kate is wearing so that you can buy that same dress and hopefully cart out before it is sold out.
Even high fashion brands such as Burberry have jumped on board the online store bandwagon. Fans of the famous plaid prints can now check out their latest offerings on their webstore and cart out if anything catches your fancy. Other brands such as Chanel, have gone all social media savvy too and though you can’t buy a 2.55 online, you could however watch their latest fashion shows there or browse through their online catalogs.
I simply adore Coco Chanel even though her personal life was a mess. (Yes, I watched the movie with my sister cause no one could in my social circle could appreciate such stuff…)
Coco Chanel was a style-setter and never a follower. She had the guts to go ahead and do whatever she wanted. Coco had style and style stays with you forever while fashion trends come and go. Blessed with nimble fingers and creating many iconic designs. Everything in her collection just simply oozes class and elegance.
Even till now, Chanel’s true essence are reflected in the designs by her successors. Her fashion designs are kept minimalistic with the usual blacks and whites. And this is why I love Chanel so much. Every piece or design is always so classy and timeless.
I love everything Chanel but the price is not very kind to my wallet. So it’s a rare indulgence I only get to satisfy once in a blue moon. I was overjoyed when I got my first Chanel. It was a Chanel Kelly, a design that is since discontinued.
This gorgeous bag is decked out in durable Chanel caviar leather and features the signature logo clasp in the center. I got it for a steal from a reputable Japanese reseller for Chanel vintage goods. And this bag has gotten me several compliments whenever I go because it’s not a common sight.
My next Chanel conquest was a Chanel GST from Europe thanks to my BFF. This gorgeous classy bag is big enough for office or weekend outings. And I had been eying it for ages so now that I have it. I’ve pretty much satisfied my Chanel lemmings for the moment.
I guess you can notice the trend now, I’m into them black, caviar leather with the classy gold fittings. To me, these designs are classic and will never go out of style. I would love to keep these bags for a long time too so the caviar leather helps maintain the durability of the bags.
So if you have excess cash, you may consider investing on a Chanel piece. They are really worth the money.
