My Chanel patent leather Jumbo bag

I'm a self-admitted handbag and shoe junkie. When I see something I like, I can't get it out of my head and it becomes a bit of an obsession. I consider myself a collector because there are pieces I own that are a little-out there but they make me insanely happy.

My pink glittery Saint Laurent Babies boots get worn maybe once or twice a year if that. To me, they're works of art and I'd never part ways with them. My patent leather Acne high tops are the biggest pain in the ass to get on and off and I haven't worn them in ages but again, they make me deliriously giddy.

When I look at my collection, I see a lot of statement pieces that pair perfectly well with my staple jeans and t-shirts but the one thing missing was a classic, timeless piece that could outlast even me. 

I got this Chanel Jumbo flap bag in the patent leather finish because it's more showy than the iconic caviar leather and it speaks to my personal style. I also opted for the jumbo size because a lot of my bags are small so if I was going to be investing in a Chanel bag, then I was gonna go all in. #noregrets

When I look at my accessories collection, I see a lot of statement pieces that pair perfectly well with my staple jeans and t-shirts but the one thing missing was a classic, timeless piece that could outlast even me. This Chanel jumbo bag in the patent leather finish reflects my personal style perfectly and goes with everything I have.
