Happy Holidays from La Chanelphile!

Chanel christmas tree

Baby, it’s cold outside, the families in town and the tree is up.  I’m ready for a break to spend time with family and friends, reflect on 2012 and dream for 2013.  I have some posts that I want to get up before the year is over but I’ve been sick and I’m taking the next few days off.  I wish you Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!  I hope to be back next week to wish you a Happy 2013!

Flash Back Friday: Vintage Chanel at A Second Chance Designer Resale Boutique

vintage chanel a second chance

While I was in New York I had the chance to visit A Second Chance – a designer resale boutique that has an extensive collection of vintage Chanel jewlery, handbags, shoes and clothing. There are two locations, one in Soho and one on the Upper East Side and both are crammed with designer products. I could spend hours in each shop just discovering all the pieces – one item is better than the next.

The Soho shop has a nice selection of Chanel, but if you want to see the real deal collection then head up to the Upper East Side location. I just stared at the jewelry in the cases and pictured myself wearing all of it – at once! And if you want a 2.55 bag you can definitely get one here – they are not cheap, but they cost a lot less than purchasing a new one. While I was there I was shopping alongside Catherine Zeta Jones who was wearing Chanel shoes that she had purchased on a previous visit to A Second Chance.

I could go on an on about how amazing the selection at A Second Chance is (and I almost don’t want to share for purely selfish reasons!) but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. I only took photos of a fraction of what they have – click on the first image to see all of the images larger.
