Chanel Reveal #1: Camel Beige Patent M/L Flap

I didn't plan on doing any picture taking during the week because of the hectic schedule I have at work. But thinking about delaying a whole week for the Chanel reveal might cause a virtual blogsphere riot, I had a quick mini photo session with my Dad this morning before I left for work. You can see my hair was still wet. The photos don't do justice to the purse at all, but I can't wait to share with you guys my new lovely baby.

Ann Taylor Silk camp shirt (Recent. got it on clearance for $18)

  1. BEAUTIFUL! And I was just looking around and decided on dark beige or whiskey colour but it must have an all chain strap - more versatile for me in Summer-less England!
    It's a GREAT choice and the dark hardware is superb! Yes she's a beauty!

  4. You are looking for a reissue bag? Is that what you meant by "all chain strap"? I love the look of reissue bags. That'll be my next target.

  6. Haha I'm with couturecoco...where is the SECOND box? I love this bag, Vicky. I think I saw it on ChloeConspiracy's blog too, and it kind of made me regret getting mine in a lambskin that's so fussy. I think you are hooked on patent! Has it been easy to maintain? I'm curious how patent compares to caviar, maintenance-wise.

  9. Absolutely stunning, Vicky! I had no idea patent leather was kind of crinkly (distressed?). Love the detailed and up-close shots you included. I'm wiping my drool off the keyboard as we speak.

    So I guess it's safe to say part 2 is not a reissue because you mentioned that's your next bag? ;) Letsee, you've got black, patent red, and now patent camel. So I'm going to take a wild guess and say the next reveal is a blue?! Don't keep us waiting too long please :)

  13. Yes, exactly, a Reissue in Caviar with the original Mademoiselle lock would be the IDEAL! I already own the original 2.55 from across 2 decades: a navy blue jersey from the 70's possibly even 60's when Mlle Chanel herself was alive and one from the 80's in black jersey. Plus a black Caviar small shopper from the 90's and a chocolate brown lambskin Reissue from this century so I'm due the next one!!!

  17. Haha, you are! Hope you find her soon!

  18. Thank you, Jessy!  When I saw this shirt, I couldn't believe that I was that lucky to get it with my size and that cheap of a price.

  19. Jean, I went to Chloe's site and searched. Indeed, she has the same bag. :) I think you are right. I'm hooked on patent. I find the patent gives the color a totally different spin. The red for example is so deep with the patent that it looks luxurious! Maintenance wise, I can't speak with authority because I really haven't used my red bag except for taking pictures. But just by handling it I can tell it's less fussy than lambskin, but I think it's still more maintenance than caviar.

  20. Thank you, Annie. :) If it weren't for you, these bags would not have been here with me. Thank you!

  21. Hi Cee, only this one is crinkled. My red one is not. 
    I wish the second one was a reissue. lol. Mmmm, a blue Chanel? That's interesting! I have seen an electrical blue reissue on a blogger (bellring) before and omg it's gorgeous!  No it's not. :)

  22. That's what I like about Beige/Camel. It a light neutral. :)

  26. I think Chanel really has to give big thanks to the petite community, we really bring them some serious business :D. Your new patent flap is beautiful.
