Purse Diaries: Chanel Vanity Bag

January 10, 2018

Hello Lovelies!

Welcome Back to another installment of Purse Diaries. Today’s subject is my ever- chic Chanel Vanity Case Bag.


So this was actually a very recent purchase for me. I bought this in Venice, Italy when I was there in October. However, it has quickly ascended to the top of my favorites lists.  I originally wanted the beige and black version (which I still adore!!!!), But when I saw this Navy color, I felt like it was different and not a lot of people owned this color so,  I went for it.  I bought the small size because I felt like it was easier to transition it from day to night and the small size holds so much.

The Vanity Case Bag was introduced in Chanel’s S/S 2016 Airline Collection which was absolutely gorgeous. The Vanity Case bag is a modernized take on the vanity train cases that were used back in the 1950s/1960s.  The fashion and style in the 1960’s have to be my all-time favorite; It was so chic.  Chanel’s take on this bag feels so fresh yet so classic. Almost like you can picture Audrey Hepburn carrying one.

I mean you guys, how perfect is she?

The Vanity Case bag comes in various colors: Silver, Beige, Black,  White and Black, Black and Beige, Pink, Navy,  Burgandy, Green and many many more colors. Colors are limited and change with seasons.  The Vanity Case bag is made from Calfskin and usually comes in a pebbled texture, which is fantastic because it is durable and resistant to scratches.  It comes in 3 sizes Small, Medium, and Large.

Hrh Collection! I love Alex!


This bag is seriously chic. I love it more than I even thought I did. It is totally functional yet still super classy. I love the details like the interlocking Cs lock and the keys. I even love the shape and how the zipper runs almost through the whole square shape.  You guys I think I have worn this bah more than any bag in the last couple months! Case in Point–>

Do you see my obsession?! I don’t see myself ever getting tired of wearing it.
