Debuting the Fall/ Winter collection of 2013, The Capucines Bag has the essence of old-money elegance, but it still has that modern glam to it. The bag itself is very practical; it has room for all necessities and then some. The logo is subtle, the flap once tucked in. You will see the Louis Vuitton logo. The flap has the classic monogram flower. The bag itself comes in three sizes: Mini, BB, PM and various exotic leathers such as python, alligator, ostrich, crocodile and lizard. The Capucine Bag was named after the street, Rue Des Capucines, in Paris. Louis Vuitton started their first store in 1854 on Rue Des Capucine. You are in luck! We have two Capucines still in stock!

The coveted Chanel Trendy was first spotted on the spring 2014 runway. The trendy is recognized by its “Chanel” top plate, top handle, CC clasp in the front, woven chain strap, three separated compartments and a back pocket.

That means when shopping at the store there are very rarely any Trendy’s lined up on the shelf. Chanel only releases a handful of Trendy CC’s easy season, making it unique and rare to other Chanel styles. The Trendy is priced more than a Chanel 19 and Coco Handle. However, it’s still a lower price point than a classic flap. […]

The only GST I like is the Chanel GST – not the tax, the Grand Shopping Tote. This tote was available in two other sizes: the Petite Shopping Tote (PST) and the Grand Shopping Tote XL (GST XL). The oldest GST first launched in early 2004, then it was reissued in 2010, and discontinued in 2015. The GST tote rose to fame in the early to mid 2000’s with the entire cast of The Hills, Paris Hilton and many other reality TV stars sporting the bag on their arm. There are two models of this tote; the original model style code was A20995, and the newer model ( the reissued one) style code was A50995. What are the differences between the two styles? 1. Its light as air This bag is extremely light and, considering its full caviar leather […]
