Splendidly Chanel

It has been a while since I took my red Chanel 2.55 out, so I took the opportunity to do that recently.  I love this bag which was Captain's present on my 40th birthday a few years ago but since it is in patent leather, caring for it can get tricky.  Irreversible color transfer from the clothing is my number one fear, so I tend to be extra careful when I carry it.  

A bag like this should be the star of an outfit, so I I paired it with something simple in neutral colors. This top by Splendid is light and I love the asymmetrical hem and cowl neck, perfect for Dubai weather that is getting warmer!

  4. I love the bag! Such a classic piece that you can carry around forever. I have a white clutch and one of my red bags was resting against it in the closet. Now the white clutch has a red spot on it. Ugh!

    1. Ouch! Is the bag patent? If yes, looks like there's nothing that you can do but if normal leather, may be you can still save it with proper care product

  23. The bag really is a statement piece in itself. Smart move making that the "pop" item. I really like how you downplayed the clothes to really make the bag stand out.

  30. Irreversible colour transfer is my biggest fear too, esp. from my jeans! You're looking so fine. I love how you match the Chanel with a casual outfit, it gives you the right vibe for the whole thing! Btw, regarding my boots, I got it from Gabor :) You could check it online at www.gaborshoes.co.uk. Hope it helps!
