My Beige Quilted Chanel WOC !

Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary - Happy Everything...


A Chanel WOC (Wallet on a Chain) has been on my wishlist for a long time. Hubby promised me one as a combined birthday/anniversary present and we were just waiting to find the right bag. I knew I wanted a classic style and color to use as an evening clutch - tan was my top choice, but I would have settled for black.

The Toronto boutique mainly carried black WOCs and were always out of stock when I called. As we're on holiday, I called the local Chanel boutique - and they said they had a wide selection of colors (yellow, lavender, turquoise) but no beige or black. I decided to drop by the boutique anyway, just to try a WOC on in person. The SA was super helpful and was looking through the cabinets to see if they had any classic colors in stock. Just then, another SA came by with my ultimate dream WOC - it wasn't listed in stock - but it was just magically waiting for me :-)


I'm SO in love with this bag - this color is the prettiest beige I've seen because it has blush pink undertones (so me!!!). I also love the gorgeous quilting and the delicate logo - I'm so happy and feel so blessed to receive something that I'd been dreaming about. I never thought that I'd own a Chanel bag - I still can't believe that it's mine!
