A perfect Mother's Day gift

I'm sure many of us have been troubled by the challenging task of choosing a Mother's Day gift for our moms. This year, it wasn't hard for me (at least not on my brain) to find the perfect gift. Why?? Because my mom made it pretty obvious that she wanted a Large 2.55 Classic Flap from Chanel.

As many of you know (and if you don't, you should take note), the 2.55 bag was designed by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel herself and has been a classic icon for the Chanel brand since February of 1955 when it first launched. Many of you sexy girls out there own at least one of these, or if you don't, you probably wanted to at some point. However, did you know that the 2.55 bag actually refers to two different designs? One is the 2.55 "reissue", which is, as the name states, a reissue of the original 2.55. The other is the 2.55 Classic Flap, a variant that was designed by Karl Lagerfeld in the 80's. The most noticeable difference is the lock at the front of the bag. The reissue uses the rectangular Mademoiselle Lock while the Classic Flap uses the interlocking CC lock shown.

Not that any of that history makes any difference, both are still stunning bags to have. But next year, if your wallet needs a little burning, you can always consider the Chanel 2.55 as a Mother's day gift. It will definitely score you some brownie points!!!~
