Dress - Zara
Coat - Topshop
Bag - Chanel
I've been thinking about getting a navy classic flap for a while now, but the thing with Chanel is that you never know what colours they are going to bring out each season. They always stock black or cream, but the other colours are seasonal and if you miss it one year there's no guarantee they will bring that colour out next season. This year I was prepared and with a little research, discovered that for the Cruise 2016 collection they were going to be releasing a navy one, with gold hard wear - be still my beating heart! I rang the Brompton Road store (my favourite) on the day of release, reserved my bag and popped down there at lunchtime to secure it.
Navy is my favourite colour to wear so I will get a lot of use out of this bag. My navy LV Alma has been used every week since I bought it over two years ago so it's a really practical colour for me, more so than black!
Below are some of my favourite 60s (and 50s) ladies with their Chanel bags. Just looking at them is making me want another one (cream, gold hard wear. Not that I've been looking......) - don't tell my bank manager!
p.s. it's good to be back! Apologies for the lack of posting this year, I would make an excuse but life just gets in the way sometimes doesn't it?
