Chanel Classic Flaps

Ready to let this luxourous Chanel Classic Flaps go, forgive me to write something as I'm sure I'm gonna miss her a lots!

Love this bag! This is most of the gals' dream bag XD. Sometimes I thought it could pass to yr next generation as well. I especially heart caviar leather, it stay in perfect condition forever. It's great for every look...casual, vintage, elegant...is chic in any style!!!



Back to the little history of the 2.55 handbag. It bears that particular name simply because it was originally issued in February 1955. Her features have all a piece of tale to tell. Karl Lagerfeld who took over Chanel in 1983 reissued the 2.55 in February 2005 and it became every all our DREAM then. From the inside out:

• The lining – The lining’s brown color represents the color of the uniforms from the convent where she grew up.

• The inside compartment – there’s a zippered compartment at the inside of the front flap. That’s where Coco Chanel hid her love letters (from her lover at the time).

• The backside – there’s a back outside flap on the handbag – that’s where Ms Chanel stashed extra money.

• The shoulder strap – Coco Chanel grew up in an convent, at the orphanage. The caretakers hold the keys at their waist dangling from the same type of chains as the 2.55 shoulder strap chains.

• The front lock – the 2.55 front lock is different from the classic double CC logo. It’s logo is called “the Mademoiselle Lock” (because Ms Chanel was never married)

You might wonder if I heart it so much...how come I still have to let her go? My thought is: If you have numerous leather bags in yr wardrode....tho you owe it, you seldom use. It's really a watse! And as the matter of fact, I know she will be in good hands with a beautiful lovely...i believe accurate time with best people and great opportunities. I should let her go then. (ha! Maybe tomorrow I will regret...)

Yay! I'll surely miss you!♥
