I was doing my Saturday browsing around my favorite sites and came across this ridiculously beautiful Judith Leiber clutch. Isn’t she fabulous?! Crimson red python with gunmetal hardware and beaded tassel. It’s all in the details! Black, ruby and purple stones dot the gunmetal closure. It has a detachable chain strap and envelope style flap front with hidden magnetic closure. Purple satin lines the interior, along with two compartments and one flat pocket. Best of all, it’s brand new and going for a fraction of the price! Retail was $3995, price: $995.00 at Jill’s Consignment.
I have been on the hunt for a Chanel bag that really speaks to me which is challenging because I love bright colors and fun prints but also know that it’s more practical to invest in a more classic color and style. Don’t you just hate the word “practical”?! In my mind, practical = safe and boring. If you’re going to spend hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars on a handbag, shouldn’t it be a bag that you absolutely love?! I want a bag that I love so much that it makes me feel like doing cartwheels every time I carry it. That being said, I just discovered this beautiful Chanel Purple Quilted Washed Lambskin Jumbo Single Flap at Jill’s Consignment and can’t help but think that it might be “the one”! It features soft washed lambskin leather and ruthenium hardware; front flap with CC turn-lock closure and exterior flat pocket. The chain & leather entwined shoulder strap can be doubled and worn short or pulled thru to wear long. It has purple leather lining with flat pocket and zippered pocket. This purple jumbo Chanel bag is in pristine condition inside and out and comes with dust cover. Carried very gently and sparingly over the years. There is no corner rubbing, no scratches to the hardware, no stains, spots, marks or damage anywhere on the bag. Price: $2,500 at Jill’s Consignment.
