Chi City Closet: My First Chanel Bag

Yes, I have finally purchased my very first Chanel bag…I haven’t been this excited since my first PS1! Something I’ve always dreamed about, I am thrilled to have my first Chanel bag be such a unique find. A soft quilted material in a stunning royal purple color, I couldn’t ask for anything better.

Where did I find something this fabulous? I bought it on consignment from eDrop-Off. Browsing the website daily, I come across so many amazing pieces, including an always incredible selection of Chanel. I have never encountered such an amazing Chanel bag before, so I knew I had to have this one.
