Favourite Colour+Favourite Vintage

With all the excitement of seeing gorgeous blogger friends Wendy Brandes and Times of Glory tomorrow, I've overlooked the other major happening for me this week-the purchase of my gorgeous vintage red Chanel bag!! I did have a scare as it should have arrived by next day delivery and it didn't!! I thought it had got lost-oh dear, I was having kittens, to say the least! Thankfully it arrived a day later and I'm soo pleased with it!!!
I previously had a Chanel bag, but I sold it about 3 years ago-it was too big really-this one is soo cute, it fits right under my arm!! When the weather is really nice, I will use it and show you it in action-I daren't get it out in the weather we are having-the rain will stain it terribly!!

I get what you mean about not bringing your bags out when it is raining! I hate my shoes being wet too! & that chanel bag is GORGEOUS! & it is in red! I am stil ldreaming of the day I can owe Chanel 2.55!!!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Yiqin-thanks so much!! Now I will save for a black little one now-haha!!

its so beautiful. i guess thats why i don't really spend so much on a bag that I know i'll use everyday put my stuff in that later turns to crap. i'm very good at messing up a hand bag.

thank you so much for reading. actually, my grandparents are here, but i kind of miss where they live..although, i don't like being there for great bouts of time.

Your closet must be an absolute DREAM to root through :) I love that bag!!!!!

STYLE DU MONDE said...

That's great that finally you got it :-) The bag is adorable! xx

Yes you can address me by my real name. :) Thanks for the comment. It pays to have readers like you. All of the positive support and feedback means the world to me. But alas, one must moderate due to rude people who don't have anything better to do than be negative to other people. Which is why I wanted to so openly thank all of the positive readers like yourself!! ♥

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ellie-I will treasure this bag, as its been around a long time. have a lovely time with your grandparents, too!

Hi fabulously broke-thats lovely of you to say, thanks so much!!

Hi acielle-yes, thanks so much-this ones for keeps too!

Hi fashion chalet-Yes, I prefer to moderate my comments for this reason too-it beats me that some sad people haven't got anything better to do than slag off all the nice people in this world!!

Siljesfashion said...

CONGRATULATIONS! Did not know you were purchasing another, but I am very happy you did. I hope this one will be in your collection forever, as I plan for mine. Its truly a classic and such a gorgeous colour. Where did you get it? I hope you girls have a lovely time tomorrow, rain or shine. And remember to take pictures, we want to see what you have been up to! (Shopping I hope) love Silje

Excuse me while I pick my jaw off my desk...

That bag is beyond gorgeous. I always say I wouldn't want to own clothes that I would just keep on a shelf, but I would definitely just keep a beauty like this in a box on a shelf and just bring it out to show people...haha!

Wendy said...

Red is such a catchy bold color for a bag.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Silje-thanks so much! The bag was on ebay.co.uk through a company called alwaysauthentic-I won it on an auction basis!! I had seen it earlier in the day and then went back on ebay, bid and won-haha!!! Yes, this one is for keeps, its a lovely little size-I want to save for a black one now!!
I hope to get plenty of photos tomorrow and will definitely do a follow up post!!

Hi chelsea rae-thanks so much, it is a little treasure-haha!! i do intend to use it, just when the weathers lovely-I can't risk the rain on it!!
