My Favourite Things Part 2 and Project of the Day

Dear Scribblers

Here's another one of my favourite things:

My Chanel 2.55 handbag and ballerina pumps.

This handbag is very special to me. Fashion and style have always been important interest in my life. I've bought Vogue magazine since I was 14 and I was especially drawn to the biography of Coco Chanel.

The 2.55 handbag (called so as it was originally made in February 1955) was the first bag with a shoulder strap. I adore everything about it, from the chain to the quilting, to the double C logo, to the deep burgundy red lining, to the lipstick pouch, and the secret pocket.

When I was 25, I wrote a list of 100 goals and to own the classic Chanel handbag was one of them.

I finally fulfilled my goal 7 years ago, and I was so proud of the achievement that I even videoed bringing the purchase home and unwrapping it for the first time. As you can imagine, I cried!

My husband bought me the dainty black leather with patent toe ballerina pumps as a surprise birthday present a few years back. I wear them a lot and they still look as good as new.

I don't buy designer products very often, and I'm so glad I was able to buy a Chanel bag. They never lose their value, not that I would ever sell it, that's why it will always be chic, stylish and a classic. Definitely one of my favourite things I own.

Project of the Day: Do you own a designer item? Is there an image you've always wanted? Create a page, or journal about it. Dream big!

Happy Scribing!
