Bag Trend: Chain Detail

When it comes to chain, I can't help but always think of Chanel chain with leather threading through it. Somehow the combination of chain with leather or fabric threading can always get a second glance out of this savvy gal, especially gold chain. Anyhoo, recently I have noticed an insurgence of chain accented accessories. It is nothing new but there are just so much of it right now. As much as I adore chain, I am not really sure about this for me. First I think too much of a good thing is not necessarily good and all these chain can sure give a gal shoulder pain. I don't know if you have tried to use one already, but just from trying them on at the store is rather enough for me to know I don't need one.

What do you think of this new trend in accessories?


  1. i gotta say i like it. but what's inside my purse not enough to get them :(

  2. I like it. I have a chain handle purse bought 5-6 years ago, but I did something clever with it the other day by wrapping a scarf entirely around the chain.

  3. Personally, I like chains, but I see your point about too many being too much. LOVE those Chanel sandals!!

  4. I'm crazy about that michael kors bag! hope you're having a great monday!

  5. I think it's a little too much hardware for me

  6. I tried the Stella purse but your right the chain was a bit heavy and I needed something light weight that I could take with me everywhere, but it was still a nice bag. ;) Love Chanel of course.

  7. Oh I love chain bags. However, I know what you mean about too much of a good thing. All these chain can get heavy.

  8. Hot, so hot! Luckily I already own a leather bag with chain trim, yay!

  9. As long as it's not too heavy, I'm all for it! On handbags, it does ring Chanel for me, but I think there are so many designers incorporating it now, that it can no longer be "owned" by Chanel alone.

  10. I totally think of Chanel as well!

  11. I love this trend! It's really cute :)


  12. Not a big fan of chains in general, but the classic Chanel designs are fabulous. Now when it comes to shoulder pain, one should think twice before going for the jumbo, right? I like the smaller sizes. I love the sandals, they are very stylish, and flat -which is always a plus for me lol!


Love to hear your thought.....
