A Little Reveal...

I have my dream Chanel purse!!  I had actually managed to finally banish the idea of owning a Chanel of my own anytime soon as I'm drowning in wedding and home improvement costs right now.  But when I heard that my uncle would be traveling through Hong Kong for a recent trip, I mentioned to him that if he had time I would love to know whether the price difference for the Chanel M/L Flap.  Little did I know that he would just end up purchasing it for me!  I guess that's what I get for having a wedding and a "birthday milestone" all coming up in the next few months.  I now have a "big girl purse."  :)

You can probably tell besides purses, I've also been on a statement necklace kick lately.  If you haven't checked out the latest Amrita Singh sale over at HauteLook yet, hurry on over now!  I way overspent this morning on a few lovelies including the Nello Necklace in coral, the Shelter Island Necklace in pink, the Teteo Necklace, and the Jitney Ring.  I had a small credit on my account at HauteLook, but it looks like I'm pretty much all spent out on my April budget too.  Le sigh.

Oh, and for all your Chanel experts out there, my purse came with a little dangly charm on it.  I haven't seen any other purses with this charm so I'm not sure if this is something new.  Anybody have any ideas?

I don't think I said this earlier, but congrats on your dream bag, Kileen!!! Is it caviar or lambskin? The detailed shots and less structured shape makes me think it's lambskin? It's soooo gorgeous. I think the charm might be an Asian Chanel boutique thing. I've never seen it on any US store bags. Is it removable? I think it's quite cute and would leave it on... unless you're afraid of scratching up the leather.

I'm a lightweight. I stayed up just for this reveal. Off to bed now!

PS - What're you going to do with your Yesstyle beige bag?

donna said... [Reply]

aww you have an awesome uncle <3 :D
your necklace looks so amazing!

Leena1021 said... [Reply]

yay, for chanel purses! you look so adorable as always! by the way, i picked up the silence and noise boyfriend blazer in tan from my store for 39.99! it's still 78ish on the website.

Janelle said... [Reply]

Kileen!! Congrats on the new Chanel purse... it really seems like everyone's getting one nowadays! haha. Looks so beautiful on you. And the bangs too :D

PetiteLittleGirl said... [Reply]

Congrats on your dream Chanel, Kileen. You're one lucky girl! Your uncle is really cool :) I am looking forward to see your Hautelook purchase

Kileen said... [Reply]

aww thank you so much for staying up for my post. you really didn't have
to! the leather is lambskin and i'm head over heels in love with it. :)

and the charm actually isn't removable unless i cut it off permanently... i
think i'm gonna keep it on for now.

as for my YesStyle bag, i'm actually not sure what i'm gonna do with it. i
can't really return it. maybe i can sell it?

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh wow, it's on sale in the store?!! i had no idea. i'm definitely going
to see if i can find the tan one. although i really shouldn't be shopping
anymore. argh. :)

Ch3r said... [Reply]

It's gorgeous! Congrats! As to the charm, it's cute, but personally, I would remove it. It detracts from the simplicity and sophisticated look of the bag.

Camille Serrecchia said... [Reply]

Perfect bag for you! You deserve it! Personally I like the logo charm, but not the ball charm. I wish that it was warm here, I am dying to wear skirts, but it snowed today :(

H Rija said... [Reply]

You outfit is so classy and yeah for the Channel purse!

Curls and Pearls said... [Reply]

Wow Kileen, congrats! That's so nice of your uncle :) It's beautiful!!!!

kimmie said... [Reply]

Oh man, it's beautiful, Kileen! :)

hurricanekerrie said... [Reply]

Oh my goodness, you lucky, lucky girl!!! :) Well, I'd say you deserve it for having a milestone birthday and the wedding and all... It's gorgeous!!!

Vanessa said... [Reply]

That bag is amazing. I love it. Now that is a wedding gift!

R.L. said... [Reply]

Is he your fav uncle now? Lol, it's gorgeous and the charm adds a special something. Best wedding present if I do say so myself... I ordered on Hautelook today too but just the adjustable Shelter Island ring in pink. Can't wait for your review on the jewelry!

Nekiah said... [Reply]

Ok so is it too late to have your uncle pick me up something too!! lol What an awesome gift. I have never seen the charm but my purse is an older model...maybe this is the latest and greatest. You look great girl...congrats on your big girl bag! Kiah

Michelle said... [Reply]

I think this is my favorite outfit you have worn (even if you were to take away the purse! lol!) I absoluatly love those stripes, and how the necklace matches the belt! So beautiful!

I love the charm! I love when purses have a special memory. Makes them so much more special. I love the charm...keep it as it! Adds a special touch.

Alamodeetplus said... [Reply]

Ok so much to love!!! First, this blazer is so pretty and looks really nice on you. I am kind of craving it in all three colors, but especially tan! Second, the necklace is gorgeous and I am totally into statement necklaces lately, too. Problem is I don't have more than one! Lol. And lastly, of course, CONGRATS on the most chic, fabulous purse ever!!!!

Cassandra Igo said... [Reply]

Ah! How exciting! That bag is gorgeous!

I love your outfit today! The combination of stripes + mustard yellow + pink is so fun!

Kileen said... [Reply]

lol, totally best uncle ever! :) and the Shelter Island ring is
gorgeous!! great pick! i wish i could get it all.

Lisachen08 said... [Reply]

eek!!! kileen welcome to the chanel club!!! :) congrats your new baby is beautiful. wear her well :)

PetiteXXS said... [Reply]

Umm.. yeah, I'm sure my uncles are fond of me but I don't think any of them would shell out for a Chanel bag! Definitely a very generous gift and such a pleasant surprise to be presented with your Chanel dream purse!

I'm not a huge fan of the ball charm, but if you can't take it off then at least you'll definitely recognize yours if there's ever a mix up!

Kileen said... [Reply]

Thanks! And I'm leaning towards cutting the ball charm off. I like it simple! :)


Nelah said... [Reply]

Congratulations on your Chanel is GORGEOUS on you. That charm is so pretty, I have never seen it (was at two different Chanel Boutiques today but didn't stop anything like that). Might be an Asian thing like Cee metioned because Asian ladies in Asia adore "kawaii" stuff.

Tanvi said... [Reply]

Oh! That a gift to receive :) love your mustard skirt paired with stripes!!!

Amy Z. said... [Reply]

you lucky girl!! that bag is gorgeous! i'm sure you'll definitely be putting it to good use! do you know how the Asian prices compare with US ones?

Tara said... [Reply]

Congrats on getting the, so exciting!

colletteosuna said... [Reply]

INCREDIBLE purse.....and it looks fab on you....what a wonderful outfit to showcase it with too:)

Ang said... [Reply]

I'm in love with that skirt!!

Kileen said... [Reply]

my uncle unfortunately didn't say anything about how much he paid for the
purse (or even where he ended up getting it from). from what i can tell,
prices are still the cheapest in europe but maybe $30-$50 cheaper in Hong
Kong? and you save on tax too.

Ivonne said... [Reply]

So classy and sophisticated. Very nice!

eclecticflair said... [Reply]

A real Chanel purse?!?! I'm so excited and happy for you!!!! Your uncle is awesome...would he be interested in adopting another niece? lol

nataliewardel said... [Reply]

Oh, just dying over that purse! I think that's my dream.

Also -- I think your uncle is very nice because I was in Hong Kong in January and the prices on designer items were not that different! He must love you!

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh good to know that prices aren't much different in HK! i guess you'll
just save on the tax. thanks for the info!

Really Petite said... [Reply]

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY Kileen!! Congrats on your new BABY!! GORGEOUS!!!!! The purse matches the person carrying it- JUST BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so happy for you!!!

Kileen said... [Reply]

aww thank you!! i'm so happy to join the Chanel club! :D

emma basilone said... [Reply]

<3 your skirt, I have a similar one! Congrats on your chanel bag! You have so many awesome bags (i am so jealous!)

silvrgurl said... [Reply]

Wow Kileen
that bag is too fab for words. What a sweet Uncle!
BTW, because of you I have fallen in love with the color mustard.
Hard to find now, but I did get a tank in that color yesterday

Kileen said... [Reply]

yay!! can't wait to see you rock the mustard! i never would've thought
that it was such a wonderful color either! :)

Tiffany said... [Reply]

yay! I love it! what a great uncle!

I already told you this but the bangs look great on you, really loving them.

Callandra said... [Reply]

That charm is adorable!

ping luu said... [Reply]

kileen-- that is awesome! i wished i had a uncle like that. lol

michelle said... [Reply]

so classic :)

Kileen said... [Reply]

thank you!

Sartorial Nerd said... [Reply]

Congrats on getting your (and, coincidentally, my) dream bag! It's absolutely gorgeous and the size is just right for you. Do you find that you can fit everything you need in it? I think all the classic flaps now have the double flap which I'm concerned might take up valuable bag space. I went to check it out at the Chanel boutique but the SAs were exceptionally rude and wouldn't let me try it out with my stuff inside. It put me off a bit but not enough to kill the dream of one day finally acquiring that bag.

The blazer is awesome too. I saw it on their website but was concerned it would be a little too sack-like on my frame. I'm a teeny bit taller than you so I think I might give it another look.

Great post! I think this is my first comment here but I've been reading your blog for a while. Love your style!

I love the necklace the most. The necklace is as charming as your smile and hair. This is a very lovely outfit.

Jessy said... [Reply]

The bag is so pretty! <33

And omg coincidence, look at Sew Petite Gal's post and what you're wearing!!!

Jen said... [Reply]

Ah, your uncle :) So sweet!! This bag is just ridiculously gorgeous. A big girl purse it is :) I am absolutely floored by it every time this purse shows up :p haha I love it!

Your hair looks extra pretty today!

Kileen said... [Reply]

i think the purse is the perfect size! i can only fit my essentials in this
purse instead of the kitchen sink, but it's so worth it!

ShenDove said... [Reply]

Your bag is stylish and timeless, what a lovely gift!

Guest said... [Reply]

hi, i think your chanel bag is a fake. the CC logo does not overlap correctly.

Sewpetite Gal said... [Reply]

Congrats on the beautiful new bag!!!! What an incredibly thoughtful uncle you have! And love the additional charm - it adds a nice touch of whimsy :)

Aubs said... [Reply]

Guest is most likely correct. Hate to be such a debbie downer, but since you asked, charm is questionable. Can't be an asian/HK thing b/c all Chanel boutiques would be consistent w/their products. Also, diamond stitching goes past the border stitching. Oh's the thought that counts << failed birthday/christmas presents taught me this.

Kileen said... [Reply]

Yeah, after looking at that website, I think it's true. So sad. Oh well. My uncle is still sweet for trying.

This is a fake chanel bag
