Chanel’s SS18 Sequin Flap Bag

I know many of you are massive fans of the Chanel Flap Bag. You’ve probably amassed quite a collection yourself, in various quilting styles, sizes, colours, leathers and/or exotic skins. Personally, though, I’ve never really been part of the “Flap Bag Gang”. Haha, okay, I totally just made that up because it rhymed. But, in all honesty, yes, it’s a timeless piece to have in your closet, but it’s just really not my style – the Boy, on the other hand, is more me

Today, though, and also because it’s Monday, I thought I’d start the week off with something sparkly, and yes, it’s a Flap Bag — one that I actually like. It isn’t often that I find myself gravitating towards one of these, but hey, there’s always a first time, innit? Perhaps it’s the combination of the pink, almost peachy shade of beige, and grey pastels with the clear sequins that give it that brilliant sheen. Well, whatever it is, this Flap Bag from the Spring/Summer 18 collection caught my eye, and my heart.

Some of you may be concerned that this is more appropriate for night because the bag is entirely covered in sequins, but would work just as well with jeans and a half-tucked tee. After all, there’s nothing like some daytime glamour to elevate your look. But, whether you’re wearing this for day or evening, you have to be super careful because the sequins may snag your clothing.
