REVEAL: Vintage Chanel!


The last few weeks have been stressful and crazy for me and my ever thoughtful Hubby thought a little surprise pick me up was just what the Doctor ordered!

I heart him!!!


Hubby surprised me with a Vintage gold Chanel pendant!

DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! 


SERIOUSLY DIE!!!!!

I was completely speechless for a couple of minutes and even after that all I could say was 

"OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG"

bahahahahaha!


It even has the back outside flap just like a life sized flap!


Chanel trademark!


Made in France (w/ Love at least that's what I like to think of all of Chanel's creations hehe :p)


I don't know a whole lot about this piece but I guesstimate it's from the 1980's -1990's because the interlocking CC's are used.

(Side note -The interlocking CC motif was created by Karl Lagerfeld in the 1980's NOT Coco Chanel. It really drives me bat sh*t crazy when I see blogs or forums apparently "devoted" to Chanel and they state up and down on their site that Coco Chanel created the interlocking CC flap.  Coco Chanel created the Mademoiselle flap in 1955 also known as the re-issue or the 2.55 with the rectangular lock. END RANT puhahaha!)

The necklace appears to be real gold or at the very least plated in real gold because the piece is remarkably BRIGHT gold in color and hardly tarnished at all which is very surprising because this piece is most likely between 10 to 30 years old.


The necklace is actually super heavy and whenever I put it on I can't help but think of Flava Flav and want to shout "FLAVVVAA FLAVV YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

BAHAHAHAHA.  

As you can probably surmise I am an unfortunate subscriber to trashy reality TV. ::SAD FACE:: hahaha


The back outside flap even has a tiny bit of space in it just like a life sized flap bag would! hehehee!  

The attention to detail is just too cute for words! 


Conversation that ensued after opening the box and after going gaga for a good 15 min.

Me: How did you pick this out??  

The Hub: What do you mean I just picked it out.

Me: I mean like how did you know I would L.O.V.E this?!?!

The Hubs: Oh.. well you wear really big and loud jewelry..... and your bags all look like that. So yeah.

Awesome right? bahahahahaha!!

Thank you hubby you are the bestest!!!!! :p

(BTW just wanted to add that Yoogi's closet is a seller of authorized pre-owned luxury goods! I was not paid by them to say that but I just wanted to clear that up in case people were wondering what Yoogi's closet was hehe :)

  27. Lovely! And your husband knows you so well! I hate it when people say Chanel created the CC design because that's the smartest move Karl ever did! He branded Chanel and made it into an uber successful look. (:

  37. Omg your hubs is so cute by being able to put "two and two" together! LOL big jewelry and bags! This is soooo pretty! Oh I read that tid bit about the chanel locks too! I wanna ask, did the locks on the reissue, the rectangle ones signify her "singleness" in anyway since she never married? I think I read that somewhere but am not sure if it's totally true =S But to be honest I think I'd get the double C's cause it's so pretty, sorry coco =P Also I read that she wasn't the modest woman so many people think of her as and was in fact quite the opposite? Is this true again or have I been reading a bunch of bullocks?!
