Alexander McQueen Legend Medium Leather Tote: Legends of the Summer (and Spring and Fall…)

Categories:Other Brands

Alexander McQueen Legend Medium Leather Tote

There’s a reason this Alexander McQueen style is named the Legend. A tote like this is in it for the long haul. We’ve already loved in it graphic floral-printed form, as well as a more structured and shapely incarnation, but it’s this newest edition that has me staring. Classic simplicity is easy (and common) to come by, so real allure is all in the details. Whipstitched trim and buckled straps with serious punch add up to a daily tote that leaves plenty of room to showcase your true personality. Actually, this spacious tote leaves plenty of room, period.

Like any great detail, the straps aren’t strictly here for looks. With your choice of three push-tabs, they are adjustable – which is so genius because figuring out the perfect drop is almost always a problem. One size does not fit all. Plus, with options, you can also switch it up and determine the right length for carrying the bag top-handle or slinging it comfortably over the shoulder.

Usually, these big, lightweight totes are designed to just stay open (which means you also have to keep your eyes open, to avoid losing stuff), but here the interior comes with two tabs that cinch the sides and then snap shut. It also comes with a removable pouch, a total bonus when you need one to toss in other bags. Obviously, I’m already loving a nice shade of white for the season, though best of all, this is truly an all-season white. Alexander McQueen Legend

Chanel Jumbo Flap Bag, Medium Flap Bag Or The Maxi Flap Bag, Which One Should I Buy?

Categories:Other Brands

chanel-medium-jumbo-maxi-classic-flap-bag-1

This is one of the most common question that people ask: ‘Should I buy a Chanel medium/large, jumbo or maxi flap bag?’. And if I tell you that Chanel has taken back their Chanel classic mini flap bag (more about mini flaps in our Chanel forum), does it make your life easier? I guess not. Let’s cover the facts first:
The Chanel medium/large bag is the favorite choose for most people. They are also harder-to-get (not hard to get), because the stock keeps leaking empty. You have to be lucky to meet the Chanel medium flap bag in CAVIAR. If you wonder if they have your size in stock, please read the comment section of Chanel bags prices and information in 2012. The comment section is still active and our members keep posting new information.

The jumbo flap bag is the ALSO a favorite choose for most people. When you have decided that the Chanel medium flap bag is too small, you chase the Jumbo flap bag. Medium can only fit your essentials, not more. But the Jumbo is a size larger.

Line-2

Chanel jumbo flap bag used to be a single flap. But Chanel changed that (I think since 2009) and they now only sell double flap‘.

Line-2

The good thing about the double flap is that you can easily structure your stuff. And it’s much bigger than the single flap. But then again, the double flap is heavier. Some people complain about its weigh, but you just need to get used to it.

Then we have the Chanel maxi flap bag, the largest size of the classic flaps. It’s not just a size BIGGER, but the maxi is huge. You can keep all your essentials inside and so much more. But you have to love big bags and it needs to match to your style.

The maxi flap bag bag is introduced in 2009, after Chanel discontinued the classic mini flap bag.

Since a couple years ago, Chanel brought the mini classic flap bag back. They used to look squared, but the newer version looks very similar to the medium classic flap bag, but then a bit smaller. If you love petite bags, then go for the mini classic flap bag.

What’s your height? Some people might argue that this is not important, but if you are not tall and you carry the maxi flap bag, that can hurt a lot. If you are serious about fashion, you choose a bag that match your height. If your size is an S, will a XL size fit you? You can force yourself to wear it, but it just ain’t right.

But still I recommend to try all sizes and feel if it’s comfortable. Ask the SA, they can be very helpful too or your friends and family.

How much essential do you usually carry? If you are used to carry a lot of items, then the medium flap bag will not suit you. One lesson I’ve ever learned is not to stuff your bag. It expands, shape will vanished and over time the bag will be destroyed.

What fit in a medium Chanel flap bag? Well, let’s ask Valerie, she recently did an interview on Bragmybag. I love her Chanel medium flap bag in taupe by the way.

Is it an everyday bag? This is a critical question. Are you going to use your bag for work, shopping or evenings? A maxi might be too big for shopping, so a tote might fit the best OR a Chanel medium flap bag.

What’s your personal taste? Don’t take my advice or words. You are the main character, not me. If the Maxi flap bag feels right for you, go ahead a buy. Don’t take anyone’s advice, unless you feel good about it.
The biggest regret you can ever have is to spend thousands of dollars on a dream bag that you don’t like. Some people just want to buy ONE Chanel bag. It’s the worst feeling ever if your decision is wrong.

Line-2
What to do if the medium flap bag is sold-out, should I buy the jumbo flap bag instead?
Line-2

Some people travel from United States or Asia to Europe to buy a Chanel bag. So they arrive in Paris and find out that their favorite Chanel bag is sold-out. Lets it’s the medium flap bag. But the SA recommend the jumbo flap bag, so you are like ‘I went all the way here, I am not going to leave empty handed’. So you buy the jumbo bag and went back home.

I would rather pay more for the bag I always wanted, than to settle for something different. I have a friend who made this mistake, unless you are planning to buy your second Chanel bag, it’s a regret forever.
If I am hunting for the Chanel in black, I will not settle on beige or green. If I want the golden hardware, I will not be satisfied with silver, unless I like them both.
