Don't Drop the 'C' Word, Unless it's Chanel
Looks like the 'C' word on the tip of your tongue this year is not Christian Louboutin, but Chanel--vintage or new. Christian Louboutin has been mass producing most of his items. You don't have to wait months for the beige daffodils, or lady dafs. Hell! He created the Lady Daf's sister, the Lady Highness and her mother the Highness. And believe me, you can walk into any Barneys, Saks, or Neiman's and not have to squeeze into a smaller size because there are so many!
Exclusivity is what makes people want items. Rare. Limited. These words must have slipped his mind, and have also fallen on sale racks at certain boutiques. And no, the solution is not to bedazzle your once 'IT' shoe with spikes. No one wants a spiked daffodil. Eww. Won't be long before Mr.L crashes and burns. Say no to the shoe below!

Now, Chanel has always had a classic appeal with a dash of edgy items in every collection. But this year Chanel vintage has come out of the woodwork. Our it girls are dripping in it! Rihanna wore multiple pieces for her Diamonds World Tour. Miley's new style incorporates at least one new or vintage Chanel piece daily. Her go to necklace is this vintage Chanel rhinestone choker with a rhinestone charm.

And the Chanel Boy Bags from Cruise 2013 Versailles Collection have been a huge hit this year! There was no stark simplicity in this collection, only an attention to detail that screamed Marie Antoinette. Gold leather, gold hardware and ornate gold ornamentation adorned most bags. Woven leather, exotic skins, gold hardware and fleur-de-lis embellishments transformed the boy bag from a bag you usually would not give any thought to because of its modern simplicity to a must have unique piece.
Many of these bags were produced in limited quantities and some were only available through Chanel boutiques in department stores. Needles to say these bags are rare and exude a love of timeless luxury. Anyone who was lucky enough to obtain one of these exquisite pieces will surely make a statement and receive many compliments. One of my favorites was the Chanel Boy Rock Bag in White and Gold ( as seen on @kourtneykardashian as well).
