Although handbags can “make” or complete an outfit, I rarely show them on my blog. I have a very small collection, so you guys would surely get sick of seeing them! After college I purged all of my bags (many of them awkwardly-sized) and started fresh. I wanted to invest carefully in pieces that were beautiful and timeless, that were suitable for my size, and most importantly – were functional.
1. Petite Shopping Tote (PST) 9″ width x 9″ height x 3″ depth
2. Wallet on Chain (WOC) – 7″ length x 5″ height x 1″ depth
– cross-body bag
I got lucky and 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). The current retail price of the PST is around $1600, and the rectangular caviar WOC goes for around $1300.
