Classic Chanel

October 15, 2015

Classic Chanel

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous

This year marks the revolutionary Chanel shoulder bag’s 60th anniversary, and it is just as popular now, if not more than it was in 1955.

I think I speak on behalf of billions of fashion-obsessed girls when I say a classic Chanel flap bag is something you aspire to own from birth. The bags are timeless, elegant and ooze high fashion glamour.

A classic Chanel bag is one of those must have items, like Louboutin heels or a Burberry trench.

 

‘I NEED this bag in my life’

 

Here are 10 reasons as to why you should own a Chanel flap bag.

  1. Chanel regularly increases it’s prices so the bags tend to hold their value well for years. This means that buying one now isn’t too risky and can be considered an investment.
  2. You can always sell the bag and recoup most, if not all of your money.
  3. Owning one makes you feel like you are in an exclusive elite.
  4. The flap bag has ‘inspired’ so many designers to date. If you are going to buy one, you might as well get the original.
  5. The Chanel flap bag in caviar leather will last a lifetime.
  6. The bags are still price-prohibitive so not everyone will be able to own one.
  7. The Chanel Boy Bag was a game changer
  8. There is a wait list for Chanel bags which no one speaks of.
  9. There are so many Vintage Chanel bags still available on the market because they never go out of fashion.
  10. It is Chanel!

New wave of brave brides

October 14, 2015

New wave of brave brides…

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… see-through?

New York’s Bridal Fashion Week saw near-naked models strut down the runway in some rather risky designs. It seems the desire to wear these raunchy gowns have grown from the start of the year and now sheer translucent bridal gowns are being welcomed onto the isle. Some of the gowns have a deep plunging neckline, whilst others opt for super thigh high splits or even complete nipple exposure. It is one way to demand the crowds attention and another to push bridal wear into the next millennia.

Is it time to wave goodbye to the big puffy under skirts, long statement trains, lace veils and tiaras??? Surely not… but for those brave another to wear these daring gowns make sure you kitted out with nipple covers and maybe some heavy duty tit tape.
