"i feel very lucky to work in the environment that i work in. i'm surrounded by people that i love and care about and who make me laugh every day. i get to work with my friends and you really can't ask for more than that."

like rachel bilson and her little green bag, i too am obsessed with my little grey chanel bag. it is so versatile it will go everywhere from shopping to weddings to hiking with me. the amount of bag envy i receive from friends whenever i use it is insane!! made of calfskin, the finish is an antique silver foil so it can easily be dressed up or down and hide scratches. the full length of the strap allows for cross-body wearing but it can also be looped twice around the flap to create a short shoulder bag. it's true beauty, however, lies in its practicality - there is dedicated space for six credit cards (two by three rows of slots), a zippered section for cash (notes can lay flat without needing to be folded) and also room for a lipbalm, 1/2 a packet of tissues and my iphone. unfortunately, i bought this a year ago in paris so it's not likely to be still available but good luck to you in your search.
