Chanel Tweed/Leather Tote

Even though I have been bitching about the cost of Chanel bags, I still adore Chanel. However, I am not a blind loyal follower. I am in adoration with this bi-material tote. It is made of grey tweed and calf leather. The flap on top is made of tweed and rest of the tote, calf leather. I like the fact this satchel can be a handheld tote or a shoulder bag. This tote is cross between a classic Chanel flap bag and a classic tote. Technically it should be ugly, but it is not, at least to me. This particular design is not new but I like this one for some reason. It must be the grey tweed flap that is so attractive to me because Savvy Sis and I are looking for a grey bag this season as grey will be the color for fall in bags among other things. At least that is what our Tod's SA told us. The price is still outrageous at $2375 but love is priceless, right?! What do you think?

  7. I'm with you on your opinion about the price, but ignoring that aspect, it is a very lovely bag! Chanel is always so chic.

  10. I always liked the style of that bag... it's timeless. Though, unless I stop buying things for month or unless I win the lottery, I won't be able to afford it anytime soon!

  13. It's cute. However, whenever I try on a Chanel purse, I feel like an Auntie Auntie. It just doesn't look good on me.
