Review: Chanel Classic Mini Flap Bag in Red

Back in July my friends and i decided to dig out all our unused and unworn clothes (yes some still had the tags on!) and and swap them with each other. Well word got around and we ended up having to hire out a hall and set up tables as there was so many clothes and people involved! we ended up taking money for our unloved clothes so it was less confusing.

 Never one to miss an opportunity i managed to find a Chanel Classic Mini Flap Bag in Red for £40! yes that's right just £40! the lady i bought it off had it in a  right state - dust all over it, the gold all dull and dusty. When i was talking to her she said her ex husband bought her some "tacky red bag" and she wouldn't take any less than £40 for it! i tried to explain that is was CHANEL! it came with all it's authenticity cards and I've had it checked out just to make sure.



I then spent all night cleaning it! I’m a big fan of Chanel anyway so to get a classic piece for such good value makes me love this bag even more!

It is the classic quilted design with the gold CC logo on. It has the trademark chain/leather strap which is long enough to wear across my body which I love as it gives a laid back feel to it.

This bag has fed my obsession for Chanel and now I’m on a mission to find more!
