Okay, can we be serious for a moment? Who gives away a vintage Chanel purse?! WHO I ASK WHO?! Well luckily that answer is my mom's friend. I was gifted this purse in 2004. I thank my lucky stars daily that women for a short amount of time thought it was no longer acceptable to wear gold. I am not sure how old this purse is; I would guess around 20-30 years old though. It recently broke, the piece of leather that connected the chain pulled out. For a mere $20 bucks at a cobbler I was able to get it repaired like new! A word to all you ladies, don't be afraid of the cobbler especially if you have a pair of shoes or a bag that is worth fixing.
Coach shoes are my favorite they are far superior to similar brands in the market. I have worn Coach shoes for months, and months and months of walking and they remain intact, beautiful and comfortable. You can really put some miles on those things I promise.
Have you been gifted anything that once was a faux pas, and has now made it's way full circle (at least in your mind) to something fabulous and lovely that you treasure dearly?
