Are you dolls totally shocked that I'm not wearing a Chanel bag in today's OOTD? hahaha :p You might be surprised to know but this is my absolute favorite bag in my ENTIRE handbag collection. I almost never wear "her" mainly because it is kind of a bulky bag. And that despite being an obsessive handbag lover that I am also a really lazy handbag carrier. Over the years I've come to the realization that the main reason I love Chanel so much (other then the fact that Chanel is just AWESOME muhahah) is because they wear very easily on my shoulders.
I have 3 points I always go through when I'm thinking about bringing a new purse home with me.
1. Must be able to wear on my shoulders.
Which ultimately rules out any bag that must be handheld or worn in the crook of your arm.
2. Must be able to sit squarely on my shoulders without the straps falling off.
OMG this is one of my biggest pet peeves.. It drives me absolutely nuts when I'm constantly having to stop whatever it is that I am doing just to pull the strap back on to my shoulders! Anyone else??
3. Bonus if I can wear it on my shoulders AND wear it crossbody!
As you can tell this bag does not pass even the first requirement. Which is why I rarely use her now. Every year I go through my handbag closet and take out bags that I haven't worn for at least 6 months and sell them off (check out my newly opened blog shop to shop my closet!). But this one I will never ever be able to sell and let me tell you why.
This bag was a surprise wedding present from the Hubs. The very first bag he ever bought me.
(Now everyone say AWWWWWW)
I keep it on my top shelf and every time I happen upon it it makes me smile :)
(You have my permission to GAG bahahahaha)
And that's my story of the day kiddos ;p
