Chain Story


I L-O-V-E chain bags, they're elegant yet amazingly functional. They just need to be slung across the shoulder when you want your hands free and the metal chain adds some bling to the outfit as well, plus, they work for both day and night!
Talking about chain bags, how can I not mention the iconic Chanel 2.55 handbag which bears that particular name simply because it was originally issued in February 1955. Karl Lagerfeld who took over Chanel in 1983 reissued the 2.55 in February 2005. His version is the exactly the one designed by Coco Chanel back in 1955.

Wore this for the farewell party we threw for our college seniors.
Brown high-waist skirt: Forever 21, floral puffed sleeve top: H & M, studded belt: Paprika, Lifestyle, suede peep toe booties: Charlotte Russe, Quilted chain bag: Hong-Kong, Chunky wooden bangles: thrift

I have 3 quilted chain bags myself; an off-white (worn with outfit above) and pink (above and worn in my first post) in patent leather and a beautiful classic black Chanel 2.55 (which is technically my mom's ;))

The stunning 2.55's; the classic black and gold and the colorful and printed newer versions, I seem to want them all!

Thanks for stopping by
