bag love: Chanel Grand Shopping Tote

If you know me you know that I am a Chanel girl. In fact, I was in Nordstroms a few weeks ago and this salesperson started chatting me up and told me about a few new Chanel sunglasses that came in and he said he just HAD to tell me about them because I looked like a Chanel girl to him. Well, thank you Mr. Salesguy (really, you were super fab) and I’m sure that I just naturally ooze a Chanel vibe all over the place and it had nothing to do with the bag I was wearing that day or your potential commission. That being said, I still ate it up like a dufus as if “Chanel girl” is an actual compliment to most people. But really, Chanel is my number one favorite fashion house and if they sold toothbrush covers, I’d probably run out and buy one ASAP. Yes I know this is a sickness - albeit a gorgeous, expensive, quilted sickness which, when you say it like that - it doesn’t actually sound like a bad thing.

Anyway, before I get too off topic, this post really is just meant to highlight one of my favorite bags. I didn't use it much over the last year until I decided to drag it out of my closet to take along on my recent trip. The Grand Shopping Tote (GST) easily held all of my (way too many) in-flight essentials and also was perfect for the days when I needed to carry a little more with me as I toured the city. Bonus points for this tote because as much as I love my designer goodies, I hate to flash logos and that's easily avoided with this one - I just wear it with the double C's against my body and the pocket facing away. Boom, problem solved.
