Chanel 2.55 Wool

I have a rather hefty Chanel collection, if truth be told, it’s far more than I ever dreamed I would own. It’s hard to pick favourites, but this latest addition to my collection is very special. Say *hello* to my Chanel 2.55 Wool. This is 2.55 Reissue is a pretty special bag, it comes from the 1999/2000 Millennium Collection, I think good ol’ Karl wanted to take the Chanel women into the new era with classic pieces which were modern, lightweight and streamline, with no classic quilting or gold hard wear. This bag is exactly that, practical, functional and modern, even 15 years into the new millennium. It was a very lucky find from Vintage Heirloom, who are one of my favourite sources to find vintage handbags, in particular, vintage Chanel handbags. They offer a lifetime authenticity guarantee, 14 day no quibble returns, 90 day warranty on bag hardware and if you live outside of the UK, you get 20% off as the tax is deducted from the price. I couldn’t be happier with my bag! What do you think?

Sporty Sunglasses

I’m totally obsessed with these sporty sunglasses by Maui Jim, I have been wearing them loads, they are perfect for driving, walking and basically every single sunny day! The sporty feel and polarised sunglasses are perfect for Winter, giving them a more functional feel and reducing glare.

The Cape

I’m so over coats, from now on, I only want to wear capes. If you see me wearing a regular coat, rip it off me. I don’t want to know sleeves when it comes to outerwear! This cape is from Boden, I love it so much I have it in two colours, Beige and Navy. I’m still trying to figure out which one I like the best!

    Hello! If you don’t mind, can you tell me what interior screw is used to secure the mademoiselle lock? I am bidding on a Chanel Identification bag just like this on eBay and wanted to verify the item is legit. Does your bag have the flat head screw with just one line, an X, or a hexagon? Thanks! Will really appreciate it.
