One thing I really wanted to do on our return trip to Paris was visit Les 3 Marches Catherine B.
There are many (SO MANY!!) magazine articles/fashion blogs that have long since touted her store so it was on my MUST to do list this time around!
And suffice to say I did not leave empty handed!! :)
My new (to me!) Vintage Mini Chanel flap in pink!!!!!
I haven't purchased a new Chanel bag in a while.. I'm sort of disgusted by the price hikes. It's gotten ridiculously crazy and honestly I've felt for awhile that my Chanel collection is more then sufficient that I actually sold a few in the past few months.)
But I've been looking for a pink Chanel for a few years now and pink is a color that's hard to find with Chanel to begin with.. but compounding the issue was the particular shade of pink I was looking for was more of a orchid fuchsia and I was adamant about it!
I swear my heart nearly stopped when I saw this bag!
Love my new pink mini!!
The best part is the chain on these vintage Chanel Mini's are much longer then they are for the Mini's now.
Which means I can wear her crossbody!!
I have a Chanel black mini (revealed HERE over 2 years ago which coincidentally is also the last Chanel bag I purchased.. I must really be into Mini's lol!)
However the chain on that is too short and I'm unable to wear it crossbody.
If you're interested in learning more about the vintage store I purchased my new pink baby at check out this awesome video by ELUXE Magazine about Catherine B and her amazing store!!!
This blog has a fantastic interview w/ Catherine B herself (and ironically in the 2nd photo on the page there's a picture of a wall of all Chanel bags.. and there's a pink mini right smack in the middle.. I wonder if it's the one I took home lololol!)
