Introducing..... my new Chanel

I got a far larger than expected tax refund from the ATO so splurged a little on a new Chanel wallet as my current wallet is a bit old and worn.  I wanted the caviar leather as it's a lot more durable than lambskin (although Chanel calls caviar leather 'grained calfskin').

The caviar leather looks like it's got a subtle sheen to it which I really like.  The Chanel logo is gold whereas all previous wallets with the same metal logo are silver.  The interior leather also has a subtle sheen to it and looks like a metallic burgundy instead of the normal burgundy that they have been using for years (which IMO is a bit ugly).

Blah blah blah enough talking, here she is - my Chanel Yen wallet in black caviar with gold hardware :)

  1. Love it! I am actually just selling my one and only chanel bag - I decided I didn't need it because I barely ever use it. I think the wallet would be much more useful!

    1. Yeah the bags are difficult for me too because I don't use it enough to justify owning it! Whereas like you said, a wallet is an everyday use item!

    1. Ah sorry I didn't mean to offend anyone :( It's not a very 'me' colour that's all :$

  3. Salivating from the reveal. I agree with you about the old burgundy, I always thought it was an older woman's colour. But I am growing into it. Eek!
    Enjoy the wallet!

    And you mean you managed to get them to serve you. Kidding!
    Anyway it's about 4 years now and my black camellia wallet is still holding up. Love it!

    1. Wow really?? Chanel wallets die on me after 2 years max. Clearly I am doing something wrong.....

  6. Gorgeous wallet! I agree about the caviar especially for a wallet which will get knocked about lots....

    1. Yep I've had far too many Chanel wallets deteriorate on me after only 12 months of use so I decided to combat that with caviar leather! Fingers crossed!!
