Featured Bag Friday

Friday, November 13, 2015

It's FRIDAY and that means it's Featured Bag Friday.  Sorry I slacked last week - I had a SUPER busy week at work and totally forgot to post - but this one is worth the wait, I promise.  This is definitely my new favorite bag and holy grail handbag of the moment.

Let me tell you my story about this beautiful lady.  A YouTuber/blogger that I follow had this bag and by the time I saw it, it was already sold out company-wide.  With Chanel, when a piece sells out, it's gone for good- unless it's one of the classics.  This one isn't.  It was from last fall's Supermarket collection.  It's called the CC Delivery, and this is the larger size.  I was SO bummed that I missed out on this beauty.  I stalked Fashionphile {almost daily} and even created an alert, but none ever popped up.

I've posted before that I was recently in Hawaii for my honeymoon.  Well, it turns out that Hawaii has a different inventory system for Chanel because it's not on the mainland.  So when my sales associate searched for this bag, no inventory came up.  I was at a shopping center in Honolulu and I said to myself let me just see if they happen to have the CC Delivery.  And it turns out, they did!  I could not believe it.  They had multiple bags, actually.  They even had a few color choices and different sizes.  I had my heart set on the black, larger size.  

I've barely stopped using this bag since I took her home.  I am more obsessed with it now that I have it than I was when I was frantically searching the web for it.  It is so practical, so functional and SO pretty.  The front pocket opens up, there's a back slip pocket - like on every classic Chanel flap bag - and there's a zippered pocket and two slip pockets inside the bag.  There's also the option to carry it handheld with the handles or wear it on your shoulder with the double chain strap.

I do have a small classic flap bag, but even the largest size is too small for me.  I carry around an 8x10 appointment book, so my preference for bags is one that can fit my book in it.  And this bag does that with ease.  I think the plastic handles - that are supposed to duplicate a shopping bag - are so chic and cool.  It's such a fun twist on a very traditional handbag!

Stay fabulous xoxo,
