NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHERS QUILT


THIS FALL IT SEEMS WE CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THE TIMELESSLY-CHIC, QUILTED DESIGN. IT ADDS THAT DEFINITE "COOL FACTOR" YOUR LOOKING FOR TO ANY OUTFIT YOU PAIR IT WITH. I HAVE NO DOUBT WE WILL CONTINUE TO ROCK THIS LOOK FOR DECADES TO COME, AND IT'S ALL THANKS TO ONE LADY...

LETS TAKE A TRIP BACK TO THE YEAR 1955 WHEN QUILTED LEATHER WAS MADE FAMOUS BY THE MATRIARCH OF FASHION, MISS COCO CHANEL. SHE BROUGHT US CHANEL 2.55, THE ICONIC QUILTED FLAP BAG NAMED AFTER THE YEAR IT WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED. WE'RE ALL WELL ACQUAINTED WITH THE IMAGE OF THE LEATHER, CHAIN LINK STRAPS, AND THE INTERLOCKING C'S. THIS CHANEL HANDBAG HAS WITHSTOOD MANY DECADES OF FASHION TRENDS AND HAS BECOME ONE OF THE ORIGINAL "IT BAGS". TO THIS DAY IT REMAINS ONE OF THE MOST COVETED ITEMS AROUND. 

IN THE PHOTOS BELOW I DEMONSTRATE HOW I WILL TEMPORARILY SATISFY MY QUILTED CRAVING, UNTIL I CAN GET MY HANDS ON MY VERY OWN 2.55 :)











OH AND ONE MORE THING.. VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO THE GUY THAT LET ME BORROW HIS GOLF CART FOR MY SELF IMPOSED PHOTO OP! HAHA
