Parisian Style in The Secret Garden
If you read my last post you'll know that I recently teamed up with Love That Bag, Canada's largest consignment online shop, to talk shopping and to #streetstyle a couple of their handbags. Today it's all about the beautiful vintage Chanel bag you've been seeing on my IG. The details on this bag are even better in person. The leather has a subtle metallic glimmer, matte gold hardware and, a multicoloured jewel encrusted CC's. It reminds me of when I first fell in love with fashion in the 90s' yet it inspired me to style the bag in a more contemporary way. The striped Zara top has extra long sleeves with a cute little zipper in the back so I feel it's more special than the usual striped top. The black jeans, also Zara, happen to have just the right amount of distressed detail. I paired them with my black Chanel loafers because you know, how else was I going to nail that chic Parisian style? Finally you'll notice a change of scenery from my typical minimal background, we shot this at Gairloch Gardens in Oakville, right by the lake. I think the outfit not only inspired me, but also my photographer (aka, the hubby). Of course it helps when you have a little yellow Chanel flap bag to blog about! ;)
PS - Yes I took my soy milk Chai latte for a stroll and it was good!
