Chanel: Mademoiselle Bag (Black)

A roomy Chanel black tote with a pretty camellia-themed silken liner. The pin-stripe quilting drew my attention, as well as the metal straps. It's posing with my favorite Marshall Field's ornament (hung on a MF's feather Christmas tree) and my very roomy Louis Vuitton Sac Plat.

John ATENCIO: Citrine Ring

John Atencio makes amazing-looking jewelry. I love his combination of a YELLOW Citrine stone with Sterling Silver and 18k Gold.

Chanel: Patent Leather Perforated Bag (Ivory/White)

A roomy and pretty bag; it would leave no doubt in anyone's mind that you're carrying a Chanel! But, if they're still unsure, a CC charm dangling from its handle is sure to convince them. Also, as seen on NM's catalog with its matching shoes.

Catalog: Chanel

Louis Vuitton: Pen/Pencil Holder

I purchased this Louis Vuitton Monogram Pen/Pencil Holder back in the day when Marshall Field's (now Macy's) had an LV counter within its Oakbrook store. Note the Marshall Field's Christmas ornament. Picture also shows my vintage Chanel patent leather bag.

Paloma Picasso: Red Leather Bag

I love bags with gold-tone hardware. I love bags made of leather. I especially love bargain-priced Designer bags that are vintage or no longer made. My beautiful Paloma Picasso bag fulfills all of the above. And it's in the color Red to boot. Oooooh, no wonder I grab for it so often. These were taken in Wisconsin/ LGYC's canteen during lunch.

Chanel: Vintage Jumbo Classic Bag

Generally, these Vintage Chanel Classic bags are attention-grabbers simply for their size. My bag was huge (approx 13 by 9 inches), and the golden CC closure was large as well. The chain strap was substantial (digging into my shoulder by the end of the day) and the leather was well-made and able to withstand daily use. Beware of the weight of this bag, especially after adding on your daily stuff; and the puffy quilts tend to flatten over time and through improper storage.  Still worth the investment, IMO.  Shown with my Louis Vuitton Rouge Insolite Wallet from eLuxury.

Chloe: Silverado Bag (Tomato Red)

My Chloe Silverado in Tomato Red color. Pictured with my Louis Vuitton Malesherbes in Brown Monogram. Two unforgettable bags. Now, if I could only remember where I bought it, LOL.
ETA:  I finally realized that I bought this from good 'ol Marshall Field's (now Macy's).

Salvatore Ferragamo: Classic Bag (horsebit)

I love this classic! I love the horse-bit closure, the metal chain strap, the leather --- Everything! Too bad Neiman Marcus will no longer carry Salvatore Ferragamo at my local NM store (according to the SA)
