Chanel 2.55 Double Flap Jumbo Bag with Gold Hardwear

Happy Monday Lovelies! 

I think every girl has her dream bag & for me it has always been the Chanel 2.55 double flap - classic, iconic Chanel. It's been top of my wish list forever & I'd been saving for it for a long time (you have to understand it's hard for a shopaholic to not shop!!). Finally, on Saturday my dream became a reality when I headed to London with my sister & best friend Nicola.


The experience of buying the bag was everything I dreamt it would be. We couldn't have had a nicer sales associate, Theresa who took the time to talk to me about the bag - how it is hand made (which I found fascinating), how many different components there are to the bag, how to store it, how to care for it.


It came so beautifully packaged, it was a shame to undo it! Every so often I have to go have a peek at it & pinch myself that it's finally mine!

Before leaving the store I had a look at the jewellery & fell in love with these earrings. I adore the black & gold combo, which I knew would look great with my other black & gold jewellery. This particular design, which is new this season has a four leafed clover on the tip of each earring - I'm hoping they will bring me good luck!



As much as I like my statement necklaces, I also like delicate pieces. I wear my silver Tiffany & Co heart necklace a lot, but didn't have a gold equivalent. 
We were in Selfridges when I spotted this Chloe Paddington necklace. 

The padlock is rose gold, attached to which is a gold & a silver key each with tiny different features.
Delicate, feminine & unassuming - it's exactly what I had in mind.

My sister bought a gorgeous Alexander McQueen silk skull scarf, a tan Michael Kors Hamilton bag & a Chanel nail varnish (Tentation).

All in all it was a day to remember!

Do you have a dream bag? Would love to know all about it!


 Have a wonderful week Lovelies
