It’s not every day that Chanel drops onto your doorstep. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out about the carefully curated collection of authentic vintage Chanel bags that have appeared in Fenwick’s window.
There are certain things that I feel as though I will be forever lusting after, and vintage Chanel comes pretty high up on the pile. According to my dad, I was about 12 when I first started going on about the 2.55. It’s still on a pedestal as the ultimate little black bag. And despite all the years of lusting, it was only last summer that I eventually saw (and held) one in real life. Needless to say my longing only increased, but the guilt of spending THAT much on a bag has delayed me from making any rash purchases on a credit card or fleecing my savings account. It is a lot to spend on a handbag after all. Still it doesn’t stop me window shopping…
I must go and see this on of my happiest days ever was when I got my Chanel 2.55 bag it's the most gorgeous and precious thing I own!
