Say No to the Big Schlep! Part Two: Chanel

We are not just thinking about your fantastic vintage wardrobe here at RARE vintage, we are thinking about your backs too.  So, any opportunity to carry a little bag is a welcome opportunity.  Actually, for evening we can not imagine anything big and practical.  Small is beautiful at night unless of course it is something like an emerald or a diamond.  In that case, big is beautiful at night!

So in the spirit of our earlier post with Judith Leiber bags, we bring you: Say no the big schlep part two with Chanel.  
We absolutely love this bag!  We love a minaudiere but we especially love a velvet minaudiere with a gilt ball and tassel by Chanel.  Did we mention the two large stitched CCs on the bag and the horizontal quilted stitching?  Did we mention that it is from the glamorous 1980s?  Just how deeply can a girl fall in love with a bag we wonder? Hmmm...  We will add a photo tomorrow with the interior.  Please note that this bag is missing its original chain but we like it held in the hand anyway.  But if you want the chain, well, look below.

Another incredible evening bag from Chanel - after all, you can not have just one can you??  This is another perfect bag from the 1980s.  In a beautiful bordeaux silk with a long 'quilted' chain, you can drape this over your shoulder or across your body when you are dancing the night away during Art Basel in Miami next week!
