Fell into a shop and seriously damaged my bank balance.
Happy May!

Sorry I’ve been kinda MIA from the blog. For the first time in 5 years of writing this thing, I had a slight writer’s block thing and decided to just shop it out and get on with fun real life. Since we last checked in with each other, my Granny has landed in HK to summer with me, the Big Bang and Beast HK concert dates have been announced and I did a kinda big thing…

Say hello to the new boy in my life, my Chanel Boy.

I’m not even going to try and sugarcoat or justify this little addition to the family. I think ‘owning a Chanel bag’ is somewhere on a lot of ladies’ goals lists right? It’s been on mine for as long as I can remember. Having saved up for this since I graduated and started working, it’s somewhat of a lifetime achievement. I probably could have bought it a year ago if I didn’t get distracted by my CĂ©line Trio, but I honestly feel like I’ve reached a milestone in the same way that most people celebrate anniversaries and all that. 25th April – happy Chanel day to me.

Of course the Classic Flap is still on my list – sorry, I’m not sorry – but the Boy in chevron quilting stole my heart a few months ago and it’s had it ever since.

I chose the classic medium size so I could use this as an everyday ≠ evening bag. I mean, who am I kidding? I’m going to use this all day every day. There’s a ‘new medium’ size too that is a little larger and more deserving of the medium title but I preferred the quilting on this version.

Inside there is just one main compartment plus a slip pocket. Perfect for my iPod or Octopus card!

Details:
Chanel Boy in black calfskin leather with chevron quilting.
Brushed silver hardware. Medium size.
Dimensions: 6.5in x 11in x 3.3in / 16.5cm x 28cm x 8.5cm
HKD27400

I think it’s safe to say I’ve earned my shopaholics’ achievement award now! Might post an updated What’s In My Bag once I’ve got a good system going – currently forgetting a variety of essentials every time I leave the house… .____.'

Hoping you’re all having a happy and sunny start to the month!

  2. What a beautiful bag. Such a good feeling when you save up and buy a big investment piece, all by yourself.

  3. Oh my goodness, what a beauty!! I love how it's not got basic polished silver hardware too, the brushed finish looks amazing! Definitely worth it... It looks so luxurious! We're not on the high street anymore Toto... xx

  4. So there is a new BOY in your life eh eh? I totally love it and have been anticipating the detail shots since you announced the big purchase. It's a beauty. I totally want a classic flap one of these days too. Definitely the dream. A lot of my friends look at me with crazy eyes when they spot a new bag and know I've spent more than er £100 on something, but meh, I can't help myself. Have fun with your granny Mish! Enjoy the weekend x

  6. Ah thank you so much lovely! (And how are you actually?! It's been ages!!) I adore the brushed hardware as well - feels a little more modern and youthful than the Classic Flap which I'll probably invest in in about 10 years' time!

  10. Oh wow this is gorgeous! I'd love a designer hand bag one day but there is just so much choice, I'll just keep saving until I find one that I love enough to warrant the price.

  29. Oh my goodness I've only just seen this, such a fail! I am good thank you lovely, right in the midst of mental wedding planning! But keeping it together (just about). How is HK? I must admit to just a little lifestyle envy when reading about your adventures, I really have to get out there once this wedding malarky is over haha! xx

  30. Oh gosh I can imagine!! Hong Kong is so much fun still - loving the 180 in lifestyle but I do oddly miss the British spring shenanigans! x
