UNBOXING MY FIRST CHANEL BAG

Hello and welcome to my first ever post! If you're reading this, I'd also like to welcome you to my blog as I am very excited to start a blog on posting all things luxury on here. Instagram does have its perks on posting photos and videos, but I thought a proper blog is able to showcase everything more in detail... Anyway, let's get started - as from the title you can see I'll be unboxing my first ever Chanel bag which I am super excited about!!! *squealllll*

But first... let me give you a quick intro about myself. I go by Angela, I'm 25 and I love collecting luxury handbags. I've watched countless unboxing/favourites videos of beautiful handbags so it's very exciting for me to be able to start my collection.

Anyway, without further ado, let me share my unboxing journey... (in pics haha)

Okay, so I forgot to take a photo of the completely wrapped box but after unwrapping the packaging on the box, it opens like this with a sticker on their tissue paper which they used to wrap your bag with (that is a lot of tissue paper...) to protect it from knocking around while you carry it home.

The dust bag is such a beautiful quality, it's in a shimmery silky dust bag with the Classic Flap's classic diamond quilted pattern and a "CHANEL" word on where the double interlocked C's would be. Inside was a beautiful illustration of Coco Chanel (I believe?) by no other but the late Karl Lagerfeld himself.

The bag itself inside was wrapped with more white tissue paper as well as the chain straps by more tissue paper. Personally I never like tearing tissue/wrapping paper off packagings like that so I did it pretty slowly (lol) and I use these tissue paper to fill the inside of the bag to maintain its shape and absorb humidity.


And as you can see, I got myself a Chanel Classic Flap Handbag in the medium size; for the sake of durability and... my favourite style I got it in the Grained Calfskin (aka Caviar) with gold hardware. I have seen it on pictures, videos and many were in the silver hardware, which honestly in my opinion isn't as pretty as the gold hardware as it complements the black as well as the caviar leather.

I've seen many people (on Youtube and Instagram) saying how the Jumbo (aka the Large) is a better choice and value for money, but since I am a petite girl (5 ft short) as you can see from the title itself I have to say the Jumbo is too big for my size.

It fits nicely crossbody but it's just too large - I do quite like how the bag sits on my shoulder as well without my elbow hitting the bag; the one I got was too high on my shoulder so I usually just carry it double-strapped on my arm instead or one-strapped on the shoulder, which is just the perfect length for my size!

Thank you for reading my unboxing post - it was a surreal moment for me to be able to afford a Chanel bag on my own!

What was your most surreal moment of bag unboxing? 😍
