The piano that I bought in How I Spent My Bonus - Part 1, was merely smoke and mirrors. I was just trying to distract you from my actual splurge, which is quite a no brainer actually - a new handbag!
But this time, instead of keeping to my earlier vow to only splurge on a Chanel whenever I have a baby.... erm fast forward to just a year later, I found myself carrying home a Chanel paperbag! *cue scream of disbelief yet again*
No, no... it's not another Chanel classic jumbo double flap, nor issit the medium (although the medium flap is calling out to me, oh so loudly). *drumroll* I bought myself my first seasonal flap! The bag is called the Chanel Coco Shine and it is part of the spring/summer collection of 2015.
|Looks like it's instant noodles for me daily for the rest of the year! *chuckles*|
Instead of bombarding this post with tons of pictures, here's a video of the unboxing of my new Chanel Coco Shine in electric blue patent with silver hardware... just the roll of the name on my tongue is enough to make me sigh in delight. *sighhhhh*
Okay fine... I cannot resist. Here are a few photos of my new baby:
|The box! Despite it being a seasonal flap, it still comes with a magnetic box and all.|
|The iconic Chanel camellia.|
|Not only is it electric blue, it's patent too! I'm such a sucker for bright eye-catching colours.|
|The leather handle... very comfortable on the shoulders too!|
|Stickers still intact. (Don't worry, I took them off already!)|
|Love the miniature logo on the classic Chanel logo.|
|Matches beautifully with my new Ferragamo heels too!|
Just for the record, Hubby was miraculously supportive over my new purchase. Here's proof:
|Our typical husband and wife banter. That last statement of mine was said in complete sarcasm, no worries! *giggles*|
