Every woman everywhere - or in the pages of Vogue - has seemed to gush to their interviewer and us the audience by extension about why they buy bags such as Chanel. It's not just because you want to look cool, hip and richer than thou in this life. But more importantly because you care about your descendants looking cool, hipper than you and rich for generations. But with the consistent regurgitation of a specific type of girl carrying the Chanel bag I would say set your sights on something else. Such as the Tory Burch pictured below.
There are a multitude of people who would say this is similar to Chanel. Both in rectangular shape and the chain. Which wouldn't be wrong, but it wouldn't be right either. The difference that this bag makes is in the details which are offered to us via the sublime weaving at the edges. This elevates the bag from your typical white bag and offers it some extra pizzaz. The kind that would take it from grocery shopping to say lunch with your girl pals; crossing from you to your grandmother, mother and back without the feeling of trying too hard to seem refined, mature but not too old.
