Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well! Eeeep! I am overly excited and full of emotions right now as the #CosmoBlogAwards are today...YES today! I seriously cannot believe how quickly they have come around, it still feels like a complete dream. I am hoping to do a post on the event so let me know if that is something you would like to see.
As you all know i went to LA this summer and i had to most amazing time...and believe it or not even after 3 weeks now i am still have withdrawal symptoms and holiday blues syndrome. I started back at University this week which has been a huge wake up call and has seriously thrown reality right into my face...so far final year has been so stressful and i have only been back 3 days! Stressing over student life right now...i need to go back to America as soon as possible!
If you have seen my sneak peek of my LA haul on my Instagram (@SophiaMeola) then you would have seen a little cheeky Chanel bag make an appearance. Initially i went to LA with the intentions of purchasing something specific...another beautiful handbag, but unfortunately it is so incredibly sought after right now they were sold out everywhere...even when i went to Spain the week after i returned from LA, Barcelona was completely sold out. Silly Sophia thinking LA would have plenty in stock...i was completely wrong, if anything they are usually sold out of everything because they buy designer stuff like crazy out there...ohh how i would love the LA lifestyle! *sigh*. So my incredibly amazing and thoughtful Dad felt sorry for me and decided to treat me to something else until we manage to find the handbag. He treated me to a beautiful Zippy Wallet! It was a complete shock and spare of the moment purchase and i am sooo incredible grateful to have such amazing parents, i am really a lucky girl indeed! I have had a Chanel Wallet on my designer Wish List for ages now and is till cannot believe i have one - I feel so blessed.
Chanel Large Gusset Zippy Wallet in Black Caviar Leather with Silver Hardware
I opted for the Black Caviar leather with silver hardware and i absolutely love the combination. Silver is such a fresh and modern take to Chanel and it is my favourite when paired with black. I chose the more durable leather on this occasion as i feel a wallet is going to be handled a little more. As you all know i love both Caviar and Lamb Skin leather types and have both in handbags already in my collection. However, if i was to go for a 'Cream Beige' handbag or leather good from them i would most definitely opt for Gold hardware - so i am looking forward to expanding my little collection in the near future...fingers crossed i can get hold of the bag i've been hunting down for weeks now. The classic CC design on the front looks so elegant and sophisticated and word cannot express how in love i am with this new Chanel addition - I am just obsessed with anything Chanel haha. The classic quilted pattern with a runaround silver closure - the interior has two open compartments, once central zippered for change, eight card slots and two slip pockets - so is perfect for someone like me who carried her life around with her in a purse and handbag haha.
Since being back from LA i have been sooo busy with everything it is still sitting nicely all wrapped up in it's little black bag and box - but i usually pack all of my luxurious goodies away to make sure they keep their best. I took it out to take a few photos and i hope they do it justice as it is such a stunning and classic design. If you read my blog regularly then you will know i purchased the Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet last year whilst in Barcelona and i'd have to say they are quite similar in the overall design. I love how i can use my new Chanel wallet with my Chanel bags - they just look so beautiful together haha.
I really hope you enjoyed the second instalment to my LA haul, i have plenty more on the way so make sure to keep checking back - not only did i pick up a load of goodies for myself i also picked up some goodie for a giveaway! I have created a little USA themed goodie bag for one of my followers to win really soon! I would love to know what you are currently coveting right now - always love an excuse to go out browsing and shopping (confessions of a shopaholic) haha. Fingers crossed i will have another Chanel post coming your way soon! Like always lovelies, if you have an questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!
Lots of Love
