Hi everyone. Unfortunately this is my last post with the gorgeous, beautiful, pretty, exciting and perfect Chanel bag. I would like to borrow her again but for now she is back with her rightful owner. The opportunity to borrow a real Chanel bag for a couple of weeks was very dangerous for my future bank account; it has  made me want my very own Chanel bag ore than ever before. I maintain hope that I will have my very own special treasure one day (even if it is extremely far into the future). My dress is another piece which my friend had custom made for me in Hong Kong. Like my yellow coat from my last post, this piece is perfect for me and holds the excitement of being designed exactly the way I wanted it. As I mentioned, I used the opportunity to have items made that I've searched for over the years but have never been able to find. I am a massive fan of velvet and always believe there isn't enough of it around. It is frustrating that velvet only ever seems to come in black, navy blue and burgundy (as much as I love my dresses in those shades, a little variety would be desirable too). I adore the elegant and regal feel of velvet and I believe those elements are intensified in emerald green. Wow. There are so many styling possibilities for this dress. I especially love the combination of Chanel and velvet; to me it seems very elegant and classy...There's not much else to report here. My life is about work, work and work right now. It's a good job I like  this place so much.

I couldn't agree more about the wonderful look and feel of velvet and wishing it came in more colours. Your emerald green velvet dress is gorgeous! You picked a beautiful design. I know you'll miss your channel bag but there are a lot of bags that would look great with that dress. I seem to recall you having a wonderful antique unicorn bag that needed a little work on the clasp that would look nice with your beautiful green velvet dress.

I buy all my Chanels used and really scour eBay and local consignment shops for great vintage ones. You can get this look for less than 2g! I know it's still a doozy but wayyy better than double that price brand new. lol
Beautiful look love, dub CC's just about elevate any ensemble!

Thank you for visiting hun, please come back to check out my latest!

Owning a Chanel Bag is one of my dreams -
I have never hold one in my hands.
But i think borrowing one is also a really good
idea. And your dress is so pretty. :)

I like how simple the oufit is so the individual pieces really can shine! (As for the bag, concierge stores coud have more affordable ones that could have been used just a couple of times, right?)
