The Day I Finally Bought My Dream Bag


The Day I Finally Bought My Dream Bag

Louis Vuitton Neo Noe Bolso De Marca

On this day (March 07, 2021) I woke up early, worked on a campaign, and got ready to take outfit photos. Honestly, since quarantine began last year, I have been feeling like my life is in "autopilot" mode. I don't know... every day seems the same. So, going out to take outfit photos has been a really nice change. I love dressing up and feeling "normal and alive" once again. 

Anyhow, March was also my birthday month and there was something that I wanted to cross off from my wish-list. This item has been on my mind for over ten years and I finally decided it was time to start planning and saving up for it, or else it would always be a "dream." I'm talking about the holly-grail of bags– the Chanel Classic Flap.

If you are a fashion lover, you know that Coco Chanel is a fashion icon and that the Classic flap bag is more than just a bag— it has fashion historical value. So, when I finally saved up enough for it, I wanted to run and buy it, but I also wanted to make that day special, so I waited a couple of months to be able to get it on my Birthday. 

What I did not know was that, due to COVID, there weren't many being made and there were none available in my city. And to be honest, I was not going to settle for another color, another finish, another type of leather... I wanted the exact same one that I had been dreaming of. So, on this day, after I got home from taking the outfit photos, I received a call that the Rodeo Drive location in Los Angeles (which is 2.5 hours away) had just received the shipment. So, after thinking about it for about 2 seconds, I decided to make the drive and get the bag! After all, I was already made-up and ready! 

The 2.5 hour drive (5 hours back and forth) was definitely worth it! I tried on the Chanel 19 bag and the Coco Handle (two bags that I absolutely love), but I did not have eyes (or money lol) for any other one. 

Today I'm sharing with you my outfit photos and a couple of photos I took at the store. I'm excited to finally cross-off the Chanel Classic Flap bag in Caviar from my "wish list"! Woho! What is the one item that you've had on your list for a really long time?

Shopping Time

Coco Handle Chanel Bolso

This is the Coco Handle from Chanel. It looks very similar to the Classic Flap and it has a lower price tag. I loved it and I want to add one to my wardrobe soon.
