Ah, the classic, enduring Chanel. Coco Chanel’s brilliant perspective on women’s clothing and accessories took functionality and practicality and made it beautiful and luxurious. This focus went into her clothing, her bags, and her shoes. Even Chanel’s stilettos are amazingly comfortable and I can tell that these would be dreamy to wear as well. I am in total agreement with how Chanel changed women’s fashions, which is probably one of the reasons why Chanel still is as lust-worthy as ever, even 100 years later. Comfort and aesthestic do not always go hand in hand, but that is what makes these shoes Chanel. Inquire at your local boutique or call 800.550.0005. You can get more details here.

I wrote about my favorite men’s wallets with very specific parameters in mind. I have the same needs for a woman’s wallet. I am talking about an everyday wallet. One that needs to be able to switch out with *most* of your handbags. Easy, classy, and functional. I know some women do not like the large continental shapes, but I love them. When they are not overstuffed, but fit all of your necessities, it looks very elegant when you are at the Walmart cashier buying your weeks worth of groceries. 😉 Seriously though, women need to have something that makes them feel like a princess! So here are my solutions:
If you are only going to buy one clutch this lifetime, or maybe two, the Chanel Timeless Clutch should be on your list. I really don’t do clutches and I don’t go to black-tie events very often. Unfortunately though, I can’t stand a cheap evening bag even if I only use it once a year. But that’s why you should buy one really nice one that will go with everything. That way every time you do go out dressed to the nines, you look fabulous! Even if people remembered you wearing that same clutch last year, it’s not a faux-pas. Hello! We are talking about Chanel here. So, invest in a classic clutch or upgrade to one of their classic flaps for your formal wardrobe. You will feel like a movie star, which is the whole purpose of dressing up right? Inquire through Chanel at 800.550.0005. Their customer service is extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend going to the store for the buyer’s experience however if you live close. The exhilarating feeling of walking out with a Chanel bag will be all the sweeter.

I love Chanel handbags, I do not like the price. I doubt this will change any time soon. I had wished that my mom or grandmother had a birkin or a classic flap to pass down to me, but they didn’t, which means they were much wiser than I would be with money. But if I were to invest in Chanel, now or later, I would love as an everyday bag, the classic Chanel tote pictured above. Sure, I would love to pass down a lambskin flap to my daughter one day, but I’m selfish, we’re talking about my needs here. This would make a gorgeous work bag, but I would pair this with jeans and heels too. It’s sexy, but understated and that’s how luxury should be. You must inquire at your nearest boutique or call their customer service (800)550.0005. I would definitely say $2,000 or more. But this is Chanel. So there ya go.
Sometimes I just like to be cruel to myself. When I first saw these Chanel calfskin riding boots on their website, I was in love. The soft leather and the craftsmanship made me want to race down to the nearest boutique and demand a pair, who cares if my husband pitches a fit. Alas, I can’t afford these, but dammit I want them. Bad bad bad. They were in Chanel’s Paris-London 2007/08 Collection and they probably cost who knows how much. (over 1000 dollars). I’ll just sigh and hope that I can find a pair of sexy leather boots similar to these eventually. You can drool over all things Chanel too on their beat-bopping website.
