Chanel 2.55

Chanel 2.55 classic flap

Ever had ‘a thing’ that you’ve wanted for a really long time?Not a year, not a couple of years. Not even five years.  I’m talking a reeeeally long time. Basically forever.   This Chanel bag was ‘that thing‘ *doing air quotation marks with fingers.*

I’ve wanted one since before I moved to America while growing up in London.  I usually saw them in magazines or if I took the tube or No.8 bus to Central London eg. High Street Kensington, Kings Road or Bond Street.  Somewhere around that time the seed was planted.  For life.
I finally managed to get my hands on one and almost welled up when I pulled it out of the dust bag. Pretty sad.
As for the pic? It’s a little tribute to Alexa’s infamous licking a Chanel shot.To say that I’m well chuffed is an understatement.

    Yummy ! Really beautiful bag 🙂

  13. Carelia Moran says:

    Wow!! She is beautiful, congrats and enjoy it 😉 I know that exact feeling, with the difference that I am pleasing my craving with a more affordable choice for now. I still have one more son with college tuition to go, then after that, I off the hook…LMAO.

    Just a little detail, it’s not a “2.55” but a “Timeless Classic” 😉 The real “2.55” is made of aged lambskin (not smooth leather), and the clasp is not a “CC” one, but a rectangular one ! The “2.55” is the one created by Gabrielle Chanel, whereas the “Timeless Classic” has been created by Karl Lagerfeld ! Anyway both are beautiful 🙂
