Today was an awesome day, as you can tell by the title! I purchased my first Chanel handbag, it was not just any Chanel handbag — it was the Chanel Patent Leather Blackout So Black Boy Bag!!!!! I’ll tell you this year has been an amazing year of blessings for me. First, I get promoted to a higher position at my job, buy my own car in my name, and now I am purchasing one of the handbags of my dreams! I love shopping at consignment shops, especially high-end ones. Actually, I buy the majority of my handbags at a consignment boutique called Chic to Chic, if you are in the DMV area they have two locations one in Fredricksburg, MD and one in Gaithersburg, MD. Trust me, you will never pay full price again, especially if you are like me and trying to budget…..well, sometimes. I shop at the Gaithersburg location because it is the closest location to me. Let me tell you..the customer service is stellar, the owner Ellen is amazing, and the Sales Associates/Stylists working in the boutique are sharp and very knowledgeable about everything fashion..simply amazing!!
I don’t know, I feel this purchase was heaven-sent. They received the bag 48 hours ago not even a full day yet. It was on hold and the customer never called back to say if she wanted it or not. I tried the bag on and fell in love, okaaay! Okay, enough with the talking I’m sure you want to know the specs of the bag, how you can wear it and such, so let’s get right to it.
The handbag’s measurements are approximately 11″L x 3″H x 7″W, the fabric is a black patent calfskin leather with high polish and blackout hardware. I believe the size is medium.
How I would wear my Chanel: I can dress it up, wear it as an everyday bag. What I love it is that you can wear it as a crossbody bag or a shoulder bag too.
Let me know what you all think. What are some of your favorite consignment shops in the DMV area?
