Isabel Marant Bela top in blue, Isabel Marant Gustave Shorts, Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats and Prada sunglasses
So I've taken a month of shopping hiatus in anticipation of the imminent spring / summer sale season. Bought a bunch of items that I've really wanted but not at full price. I love this very casual summer outfit of the Isabel Marant Gustave shorts in pink, the embroidered Bela top in blue. The Charlotte Olympia velvet kitty flats in black don't really match but arrived in the same UPS shipment so just threw it all on together.
It's been seven years since I've bought any Chanel. My last purchase was a black 2.55 reissue from one of my last trips to Paris. I've been content with my collection, the classic flaps with the interlocking cc clasps have never been my thing, I love the understated ness of the reissue and I have a few fun evening bags as well. Content until the boy bag was introduced a few years ago. While it wasn't love at first sight, I started falling in love with the chunky chain, aged hardware and structured masculine shape. Put my name down at the Beverly Hills Chanel boutique for a black medium and it was in store in about two weeks. This is the new medium in black metallic calfskin and he's perfect. It's a nice contrast to the reissue, which is a very classic, feminine, delicate bag; the new boy just fits my super casual, on the go lifestyle with a toddler.
