My First Chanel Bag! + Longchamp and Sam Edelman Reviews

I got the Chanel Wallet on Chain I wanted!!! I initially wanted black caviar leather with silver hardware but ended up getting it with gold hardware because silver isn't available with it everywhere I checked. My very good friend was in Paris while I was searching for it in Asia so I really couldn't pass up the opportunity to get it through her for such a good price compared to how much it's sold for here in the states with the price increase.


I love it and am very happy with it as my first wearable Chanel piece. :) I initially planned to purchase the square mini but after looking at it and trying it on in person while in Hong Kong earlier this month, I definitely prefer how this one looks on me. What's nice about Chanel bags is how versatile the chain strap is - it can be worn crossbody, on the shoulder, and shortened on the shoulder with double straps.

In addition to this, my (amazing) friend also helped me pick up the Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir Handbag that I've been coveting ever since my travel bag fell apart on my trip a few weeks ago. I spotted this red one in the Taiwan Airport but have since realized red, unfortunately, doesn't look good on me.

Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir Handbag

I'm not a big fan of the nylon Longchamp Le Pliage handbag because I'm on my third one and I've always had issues with broken corners after a short amount of time but when I saw this in store, I fell for it right away with its soft, supple leather yet lightweight and foldable practicality. It's the perfect size for me and is definitely roomy enough to hold all my carry-on essentials of book, ipad, snacks, wallet, phone, and charger. I got it in Black and can't wait to use this on my Alaska cruise in August! :)

And last but not least, as mentioned here, I've been wanting a pair of cage-type sandals or booties and I think I've finally found a pair with Sam Edelman's 'Emlyn' Sandals, which I'm wearing in all of the photos above. I've decided to keep these to end my search of cage-type sandals/booties. They're comfortable for such a high heel height and can be worn both casually and dressed up so am happy with my find. :) * UPDATE: I wore these out for the first time on my birthday and they are unfortunately, definitely not as comfortable as I thought because the back of the shoe digs into my the back of my ankle every time I walk though this may not be a problem for taller ladies. :(
