Sweet & Sassy | Holiday Styles

Happy Monday, friends, and welcome back to a new week! Our son ended up coming home for the weekend, where I immediately whisked him to the doctor for strep and mono tests. Apparently mono is running rampant on campus, and especially though his dorm. #awesome

He headed back yesterday with an arsenal of antibiotics and vitamin C, and is hopefully on the mend. I think it did us both good to have him resting at home for a bit. It’s hard not being able to take care of your kids when they’re sick!

Today I’ve got some fun styles perfect for the season ahead… but we could have also called the post, Mama Got a New Bag! And for a steal! I scored this stunning vintage Chanel on eBay for a fraction of the cost of a new one, and I could not be more thrilled with my purchase!

I’ve wanted a Chanel bag for ages, and knew I wanted vintage… I just love the supple leather and age that comes with older bags. Plus, I love imagining the stylish woman who was likely beyond excited the day she got it, and wore it lovingly for years.

So I’ve been patiently watching eBay listings, waiting for the perfect bag at the best price to pop up! (See my tips for scoring designer for less on eBay here.) As soon as I spotted this one, I just knew it was the one. I studied the photos, read the seller’s reviews, and compared it to all the similar listings… then clicked the exciting, ‘Buy It Now’!

This beauty adds style and class to literally any outfit, especially evening and dressy styles. Plus, it’s the perfect size for essentials. I love knowing my daughter will someday carry this bag, and treasure the memories behind it.

For a playful look, I styled the Etoile Party Skirt from our Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Holiday Collection with a sparkly graphic sweater. When it gets a little cooler, I’ll add opaque tights. The block heels are chic and comfy, too!

For a second look, perfect for any night out this season, I paired our Confetti Double V-Neck Tank with black jeans and boots. So easy and comfortable, yet sassy for evening.

The velvet is so soft and luxe, and the bold red is perfect for the season ahead.

    $950 for a bag that will be rarely used? Not in this lifetime. Course if Ebay paid me to say i bought something from them…nah still couldn’t do it. Yes we know. You’re high class. That’s why I laugh when you post about Walmart. As if you’d be caught dead in anything that cheap!

      Thanks for your opinion, Cookie. I actually will carry this bag a lot, will have it for a lifetime, and then pass it along to my daughter. It’s an investment I’m happy with, which is all that matters. Not every post resonates with every reader, and that’s okay. I also beg to differ about Walmart, I have no fewer than 20 pieces from them in regular rotation, it’s all about the high/low mix! xo. C

    U did score w/that bag! Thanks for showing more of them. Brilliant how they are just timeless.
    Should have sent the teen back to school w/a case of antibacterial wipes to clean every surface. It’s no wonder doctors want them well vaccinated before moving in.
