So I still can't talk myself into a maxi (the largest size) Chanel flap bag because the responsible me on the inside is telling me spending close to $3000 on a bag is a little excessive. But, I can still look without spending a dime. So, on a recently outing, I accidentally discover Chanel's caviar leather differs from the older style in terms of texture. The new caviar leather is softer and less grainy compare to the old caviar. I thought the bag looked different but couldn't tell the difference until I had it in my hands. Unlike lambskin, caviar is more scratch resistant. Rather, due to the texture, scratches hide better. As you can see in the picture above, this new caviar pebble grain leather is finer comparing to the older style (see picture below). I adore this new change. A gal can have best of both worlds, more scratch resistant without giving up the refine look. Previously, caviar leather bags manage look more casual because of the texture. Oh in case anyone is interested, this caviar maxi flap will set you back $2895.
Okay so let's change the subject completely. Why am I stilling seeing PVC Chanel heels? Let me just say they are not the easiest thing to wear and I don't think they are savvy at all, even if this pair is a classic style. To be fair, I tried these on for size myself and the PVC was just not attractive to me at all. Let me ask you, will you pay $635 for this pair of heels?
