friday finds (sort of)

I have been a derelict of a blogger this week, friends – forgive me? The truth is, I’m house-hunting (which you’ll know all about if you’re hanging with me on Twitter), and it’s not something I do terribly well. I can shop for just about anything, but the hunt for a new home stresses me out beyond belief. Finding the right place, in the right location, with the right amenities (hello, closet space!)…and no return policy?? Too much pressure for this girl.

But yesterday, I gave myself permission to switch gears for a few minutes, and de-stress by fantasizing about one of my favorite splurges: handbags! I’m nearing the danger zone with my Chanel bag fund…in which the purchase is actually within reach, and I’m starting to have serious pangs of yuppie guilt about spending that much on something. That said, look how pretty that “something” is:

This is the new Quilted Boy Flap from Chanel’s latest accessories collection. It’s pretty fabulous, right? And, don’t worry, not as shiny in person.

But, just for the sake of argument, I could also have any one of these pretties:

YSL studded Muse Two / Proenza Schouler PS1 (crazy, I know, but this girl is inspiring me) / One more Muse Two

Could you just die for that studded YSL? My heart skips a beat every time I see it.

Anyway. I could even add on one of these:

Michael Kors Benbrooke (a total steal, by the way) / Mulberry Lily (also pretty amazing in bronze)

And, in some cases, still have enough for plane tickets to Maui. You see my dilemma.

So, talk to me, friends. What would you do? One massive splurge you’d have for a lifetime, or multiple lovelies to make you happy for at least the foreseeable future?

    I would go for the Chanel. It seems like whenever there is that ONE thing you really want, even if you buy other things you like equally as much and get more items for your money, you are STILL wishing you had that one item. You’ll go back to it again and again. Don’t you think? It will be one of those items you look back on all the time knowing how much you love it. There is nothing like the original!

    Hi! I’m a new-ish reader and had to comment on this post. I would definitely go for the Chanel purse. You will get years and years of happiness out of it. And if you were to purchase something else with the money, you’ll always be wondering ‘what if’. There is nothing as timeless and classic as Chanel…it will always be in style.

    Thanks for sharing all of the purses you covet. I buy myself one purse a year – my birthday purse – and I’ve been able to add quite a few to my “potentials” list. Although, some of them may require a few more years worth of savings. 🙂

    Stay strong and wait for the Chanel! I am a bagaholic, but I never tire of classic and versatile styles. I look forward to the day you take the Chanel home! 🙂

    All of those bags are fantastic…but that Chanel one is to die for. I’d bet you’ll never regret going for it! Good luck with a tough decision! 🙂
