Need Money Fast? Pawn Your Chanel Bag…

yes lady financeyes lady finance

Milan Station is a well known second-hand shop for gently used or new luxury handbags. They noticed something about the women that sold their bags — sometimes, they didn’t want to really sell their bags because of the emotional attachment they had. Seeing a need, they expanded their business with a lending unit: Yes Lady Finance.

Yes, that’s the name: Yes Lady Finance. You can bring in a bag and pawn it for a small loan. You have a grace period to pay the loan back and you’ll get your bag at the end of the period. Let’s just hope ladies aren’t using these loans to buy more handbags!

Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Accessories Preview

Chanel Fall 2013 Act II Accessories

Last week I was invited to the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Accessories Preview but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend. Luckily, the folks at Purse Blog/Purse Forum were in attendance and took gorgeous photos of the handbags, shoes and jewelry we should expect in boutiques later in the year.

As you remember the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Ready-to-Wear collection had a chain theme that ran its course through the collection. The Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/2014 Accessories feature heavy chain embellishments and often paired with leather, velvet and tweed. Check out some highlights from the collection below.

Alice Dellal is the Face of Chanel Boy Bags Again

Alice Dellal made her Chanel debut in the first Chanel Boy Bag ad campaign last spring and now Chanel has unveiled the second Chanel Boy Bag campaign starring Alice Dellal as the face of Boy Bag again.  The campaign features black and white images of Alice Dellal on horseback  – these photos are reminiscent of an image I’ve seen of Coco Chanel on horseback (with Boy Capel) and were probably inspired by that image (see below).  The campaign was photographed at La ferme de la Chapelle, Fontaine-Chaalis.

For more information on Chanel’s Boy Bag collection visit boy.chanel.com.

Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 Details

chanel fall winter 2013 2014 accessories

The Chanel Ready-to-Wear Fall-Winter 2013/2014 collection was a feast for the eyes for those of us that love accessories. The emphasis this season was on chains – lots of them – on everything. Boots had loose chains draping over them and shoes had chain details on the soles. Thick bracelets were stacked on wrists, while thick necklaces were worn on the napes of necks place over the hair.

My favorite part of the collection were the bags. The Boy “Lego” Brick bag makes a comeback but this time with some tweed accents. I especially loved the oversize boxy bag that models held like an oversize clutch. Chanel also presented bags oval bags, Boy Bags, and a new bag with a metal pipe-like handle. My favorite bag of all though was the little globe bags. Appearing in black and clear, the Chanel globe bag will definitely be the evening bag of the season.

Closer Look: Chanel Spring 2013 Accessories

Chanel Spring 2013 Accessories

The Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 collection – especially the accessories – was one of my favorites that I’ve seen in a while.  While the hula hoop bag stole the show, there were so many good pieces of note.  My darling camellia sneakers (which are in store now for $1900), those amazing sunglasses with Coco Chanel’s silhouette on them and of course the Boy “Lego” Brick bag (which will retail for $9900).  There go my dreams of saving up for the camellia sneakers and Boy “Lego” Brick bag. So now I’m left to drooling over – and sharing – pictures on the internet.  Come join me and let’s enjoy these together…

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Accessories Preview

chanel spring 2013 accessories

Some bloggers (ahem, not me :( ) were invited to see a preview of the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 accessories in the Chanel showroom. I’ve selected my favorite pictures from each blog but invite you to take a look at the blogs to see all the photos.

I have to say that this is one of my favorite accessories collections to date. I already know that I want to save up for a red Chanel Boy Brick Bag (aka the LEGO bag) and a pearl bracelet. And you know I adore the glasses with a silhouette of Mlle. Chanel herself perched on top but I want that more as a collector and not as someone that would actually wear them. Note to all family and friends – please no gifts this upcoming birthday and Christmas – instead please make donations to my Chanel Spring 2013 accessories fund! xo

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Accessories

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Details

You’d think after almost thirty years at Chanel that we’ve seen all of Karl Lagerfeld’s tricks yet each season he amazes me. Like the apparel, Karl stepped away from signature Chanel pieces like cuffs and quilted 2.55 purses. Instead we saw enlarged pearls either along in a bracelet or in clusters around the wrists and necks of the models. Many of the purses were angular and some even looked like Lego’s (in shape and color). The spectacular piece that has the internet going nuts is the hula hoop beach bag – very practical in its impracticality. Karl explained in an interview that you can stand the bag in the sand and hang things over the top to dry. But while everyone has been eyeing that bag, I’ve been eyeing the sunglasses the model was wearing with that bag. On top of the left lense of the sunglasses is a mini Coco figure. How fun! I cannot wait to see these glasses in person they are amazing! See more details below…

Sponsored Post: Ultrabook™ Inspired by Intel – the LBD of Computers Part 2

Vintage Chanel Mini Flap Bag

When I was asked by Intel to snap and share images of designs that inspire my love of fashion it was a no brainer. As a Chanelphile, you can see Coco Chanel’s influence everywhere in how women dress almost one-hundred years after she started designing. A few weeks ago I showed you some pieces from my closet that were Chanel or Chanel-inspired. This week, I’m showing some more favorite Chanel accessories.

In some ways the Ultrabook™ inspired by Intel is like a classic little black dress in your closet. It’s dependable and can run for hours and standby for days. At less than an inch thick, the lightweight and highly portable Ultrabook™ is easy to grab and go anywhere and probably much smaller than your favorite bag that you carry your life in. The Ultrabook™ wakes up in a flash, so you get quick access to your favorite content by going from zero to go in seconds.
