Here’s a little DIY I came up with after running into a bit of a conundrum when trying to pack for a few upcoming bachelorette parties. Without making myself sound like too much of a fogie, I’m well past my clubbing phase, and I realized I no longer owned any Vegas or Cancun-appropriate tiny purses or pochettes. But I didn’t want to go out and purchase an entirely new bag that I knew would likely just get shoved in the back of my closet (at least until some of my other friends got engaged). After scouring Pinterest for an hour or so, I saw that the young whippersnappers were favoring teeny, colorful crossbody wallet-on-chain bags and then it hit me! A wallet-on-chain is not much more than what the moniker implies – a wallet on a chain. So I basically just took my Chanel wallet and popped a chain on it to turn it into a mini purse. The neat thing about this DIY is that when you’re done using your wallet-on-chain, you can simply convert it back to a regular wallet. Don’t you just love convertible accessories? Read on to see the full how-to tutorial.
A luxurious quilted Chanel matelasse flap bag in rare burgundy caviar leather with rich gold hardware. This is a vintage item so there are a few scratches on the interior and scuffs on the exterior, and one side of the shoulder strap was recently repaired (please see pics). Other than that it is in gorgeous condition and just waiting to be worn and loved by the right Chanel lover!
This auction is for an absolutely stunning and rare pearl beige Chanel Jumbo Flap Bag in lovely preloved condition. This bag has been professionally recolored and reconditioned (the original color is the pinkish light beige still seen inside the bag, while the new color has a pinkish pearl beige luster and sheen). The bag does have some discoloration on the chains and some scuffs on the body of the bag (see pictures) but is in great condition thanks to the professional restoration.

This beautiful quilted caviar leather purse is a chance to add a statement Chanel piece to your closet for a mere fraction of the original price. The signature CC clasp, Chanel logo zipper charm and rich gold-tone strap are hallmarks of the coveted brand, and the crossbody style is easy to dress up or down.

So here’s something you might not know: In American English, the term jumper refers to a dress meant to be worn over a sweater or a shirt, but in British English, a jumper is a sweater. Both languages also recognize the word to mean “a person who jumps.” But you probably already knew that.
Steering back to the point of this post, I recently scooped up this dark navy jumper (American English usage) at my neighborhood thrift shop to wear over my favorite olive green jumper (British English usage), and I’m liking the posh (though verbally confusing) result. Jumpers are really easy to wear but they haven’t been en vogue for a while, so it baffles me that their frumpy country cousin, the overall, keeps making its way back into seasonal trends. So this winter, I challenge all you stylish ladies to try out a jumper (you can even just take a summer dress, wear it over a sweater and call it a jumper) and see how you like it! It’s a nice way to maximize your wardrobe and it’s also a lot less boring that just wearing a sweater and a skirt.

A recently completed silk top straight from the Clossette studio. The front panel was cut from a luxurious Chanel scarf dotted with subtle magenta stars that burst into a trail of golden CCs. The back is made of a fine mesh material that looks light pink in some lights and white in others.

I still love this top so much that I’m not ready to part with it unless it’s to the right buyer. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested!
If you happen to see any stray copies of the December Vogue left on newstands, pick it up because there’s something in there that you want – a super chic black and gold Chanel holiday card emblazoned with the #5 on the front and “A drop of No 5 and nothing else” scribed on the inside. But that’s not all. The intricate card is also strung with 5 delicate strands of gilded Chanel sequins in the shapes of perfume bottles, snowflakes and CCs. Of course the card is lovely to look at just as it is, but I know what I was thinking as soon as I opened mine up – DIY time! Read on to see how I transformed a few rows of the sequins into a glamorous Chanel charm bracelet.
