You guys ever dreamt about something and everybody declared you crazy for it? Well… ever since I was a young teenager and saw a celebrity in some gossip magazine wearing a Chanel handbag I’ve been hooked. I told myself, one day I’m going to own that bag myself!
When I looked up the price tag on that certain bag, I was shocked. How could anyone ever spend so much money on a bag?! But, the dream kept coming back and a couple of years ago I told myself: Kelly, you’ve been dreaming of this bag for about 10 years now, maybe you should just go for it. And that’s what I did… With the love and support of my hubby to be I saved up for a Chanel bag and after what seemed forever, the day finally came that we walked into that store to make the purchase.
Maybe I’ll tell you guys about the shopping experience at Chanel if you guys are interested. But for now I just wanted to share how happy I am with this baby. I do consider this bag as my little baby and will take so much care of it and love it wholeheartedly.
Disclaimer: I know there are a lot of haters out there , if you in any way feel unpleasant about this post, just stop reading and do something you love instead.
Of course the bag I fell in love with 15 years ago was the Classic Flap and I was doubting between that style and this Boy Bag. Ever since it was released in 2012 I guess, I’ve been completely in love and found this edgy style more suitable for my personality. But still, the doubt was hard. And it was only once I was in the store that I choose. I saw this particular style boy bag with the chevron flap and gold brushed hardware and I was in love. This particular combination isn’t that common so it felt right to go for this one.
I’ll do a first impressions post on this bag soon and will give an update on the wear and tear in a couple of months, so stay tuned for that. But for now I’ll tell you that I went for the Chanel Boy bag in size medium and this is a calfskin leather which is a little bit more durable than the soft lambskin Chanel is known for.
Needless to say that I am madly in love with this beauty and it truly is my most beloved item besides my engagement ring. So looking at this bag makes me so happy and reminds me that dreams do come true. I feel really blessed and grateful at this point in my life and this bag symbolizes where I came from and where I stand today.
