Chanel Bon Bon (Candy) Bag

When 5 year old Savvy Niece tells me she wants this bag because it is so beautiful, I know I must avoid it. I guess House of Chanel is trying to bring the inner child out from us savvy gals. At times, I think I am in a candy store when browsing at a Chanel boutique but this is not the bag for me. There are 2 sizes available. The large one is about 12 inches ($1295) and the little one is about 7 inches ($1150). Starting with the large which is meant to be a shoulder bag is just so awkward against the side of my body when the chain is hanging off the shoulder. The small one which is a wristlet is better but this gal really doesn’t know what to do with it as it swing wildly on my wrist. I am going to attribute this to the funky triangle shape of the bag. So is this Chanel savvy or not so much? (pic shown is the smaller version, the large version has longer chain)

  2. It's the exact shape of this little frog Hershey kiss holder that someone made for me a while back. It's sitting on my desk ~ right where triangle pouches should be. :)

  6. The form is great, but the function seems missing, according to your observation. I'll take your word for it!
