We've uploaded so many photos since 2006 on our Daily Arrival Blog, that we just had to purchase more space to add additional photos. Consequently, this will be the last post of the day until we get more room from Google which takes apparently 24 hours. Is it an Ugh! or Hallelujah! we should shout? We can handle a break from blogging, but can you handle a break from our blog? THAT is the question! Amen that we have a duo post of Chanel bags below and our advice is to buy both. Why? Why not! Seriously, we think the options of both a black and navy classic 80s Chanel bag are very warranted in your closet. The black bag has a large monogram flap pocket; where as the blue one has an asymmetric flap detail (the fold over is permanent and stitched to the bag). Both bags have large coordinating fringe tassels, but note that the gold hardware on the blue tassel has lost a touch of its gilt over the last thirty years. Both bags were just refurbished by our master leather repair man so they look remarkably fresh for bags purchased in the mid 1980s.
