1. Petite Shopping Tote (PST) 9" width x 9" height x 3" depth
Beautiful, classic tote - but for reasons mentioned in the video, is not too functional for me.
2. Wallet on Chain (WOC) - 7" length x 5" height x 1" depth
This bag wasn't even on my radar until I discovered (non-petite) Anh of 9to5chic. She always looks effortlessly polished, and her WOC makes frequent appearances in outfits for all sorts of occasions. The WOC satisfies all of my requirements. It can be worn as a:
-long shoulder bag
- double-chained purse; or
- cross-body bag
Dress: J.Crew paisley sheath sz 0P (altered)
I purchased both of these pre-owned. I don't discriminate against pre-owned Chanel as long as it's in excellent condition and comes with all the original packaging (box, dustbag, tags, auth card). I have plenty of other things to spend the money saved on. The current retail price of the PST is around $1600, and the rectangular caviar WOC goes for around $1295.
Here is an oldie but goodie from Alterations Needed on the East/West and classic medium flap. I'm interested in getting a taupe or colorful small flap next, but the original small size seems hard to come by these days.
