Jumbos, classics and Chanel .

I was 19 years old when I first laid eyes on a red vintage Chanel bag and immediately fell in love . Sure I had been exposed to them earlier however I never actually cared, I only ever associated these premier labels with pretentious attitudes….this time however I wanted to discover the history behind it all and develop a true appreciation for them . I then spent every spare moment on the Chanel website browsing bags, accessories, shoes and then researching the genius behind it all, Gabrielle aka Coco Chanel . As sad as it may sound I’d just die at the sight of this bag . I eventually purchased a pair of ballet flats, yet still longed for the bag . After 4 years of drooling over this bag a found myself in the Rome store with the intention to purchase gumboots . I decided to ask how much the Classic Jumbo was…3400 euros she replied . In comparison to the $5690 price tag in Australia that was already tempting…but the thought of carrying this treasure everywhere over Europe made me hesitant . She asked if I wanted to look at the bag, even though I’d spent 4 years looking over every intricate detail of this bag I thought yeah why not! As I picked up the bag and glanced at it in the mirror i fell in love all over again . I placed the bag back on the counter and was about to walk away when the shop assistant reached for the bag…I immediately put my hand back on the bag and firmly said “I’ll take it” . I spent the rest of the day shaking with adrenalin .

this photo was taken post purchase as evident by the Chanel bag and giant grin on my face!

Strangely enough I now no longer possess the want or need for another one…I’m more focused on collecting Vintage YSL .

This was just my right hand, on the left I had another 4 rings on . Contrary to many, I feel that more is less when it comes to rings and certain jewellery pieces . With the weather warming up I’m excited to match all of my ysl pieces and costume jewellery with summer dresses and simple looks entailing a singlet and ripped shorts .

the transparent clutch .

I’m not sure how I feel about a transparent clutch . I love the look of it; sharp, clean and almost perfect . However immaculate aptness isn’t suited to my disheveled appearance . By disheveled I’m not implying I appear homeless but rather that I fail to suit flawless pulled back hair and full length stockings . I look trivial without bumps in my hair or at least knee high socks . From studying, to my room, and to my bag I function in piles of clutter . I study and work surrounded by mountains of books and paperwork, my room is occasionally messy but I know exactly where everything is located and I love being able to throw things in my Louis knowing no one can see it . I’m sure no one wants to see my abundance of tissues when suffering hay fever or my lipstick pressed tissues post YSL application .

Peace .
