#BagThursday: A Vintage Chanel Love Story

I’ll say it once, I’ll say it a thousand times: you cannot go wrong with a vintage Chanel bag. Way back when I first discovered the wonderful world of designer handbags, a simple vintage black flap stole a little piece of my heart. My admiration grew as I saw the style on the arms of my then style icons Lauren Conrad and Nicole Richie.

Ten years later the little gem is still high on my lust list, so you can imagine the excitement (and nostalgia!) I felt when this vintage Jumbo XL made its way into TLC headquarters last week.

Perfectly pairable with leather shorts and a floaty top for evening or denim shorts and a fedora on the weekend, this vintage Chanel bag clearly has it all.  The quilted soft lambskin, the signature twist lock closure and the classic chain link shoulder straps make this handbag an ageless Chanel creation.
