Chanel Flap Bags

I was going to write the title "classcial Chanel bags" but then I realised that these classical bags must have a name so I went onto the Chanel site and found out that the classical Chanels are actually called the Chanel flap bags. While the Chanel flap bags are always considered very classical, I always thought they were meant for women who are middle-aged, say over thirty years old? Or at least over 25.

Young celebs everywhere are proving my belief wrong. Here are a few lucky girls who have been spotted holding the Chanel flap bags recently:

Ashley Olsen
Mischa Barton -When I think of her, Miss Sixty jeans with a Chanel flap bag automatically spring in mind.
Lindsay Lohan

Wouldn't it be "Classic" flap bag? Not "classical"? Just a grammar thought. Anyways, I"ve always loved these. And Mischa has been carrying them since before the OC days, so I dub her queen of the recent teen trend.

A 30 year old woman is hardly "middle aged!" :)

I love Chanel bags. They look good on anyone. If only I could afford a 2.55...

I like the flap better than the 2.55 and yeah, I'm turning 23 in two days and I must say 30 is faaaar from middle-age. Carrying a Chanel flap bag has nothing to do with age, moreover. I am sure your blog is not limited to the 18-25 demographic and I am sure you want to cater to your "clientele" so be a bit more astute about what you post.
In any case, keep on blogging! :)

Funny, I think of Miss Sixty jeans and Chanel flap bags with Mischa Barton. She used to be so cute, but her fashion style's gone all messy these days...

is a post about Chanel bags (not only flap bags) spotted on celebrities I wrote some months ago.
Moreover, in my blog I am posting bags of my readers for the topic 'What is in my bag': if you want to send me some pics of your bags and what is inside, you're welcome!!

I like how you give your thoughts and opinions about things openly on this blog. So if you think 30 years old is middle aged, sure, why not? I feel myself aging all ready.

Yes I totally agree! I feel like I'm aging and I will be 20 v soon. To be honest, I have no idea what age range 'middle aged' is supposed to be, but I guess what I'm trying to say is that I thought that Chanel flap bags look more complimentary on females above 19 yrs old. (Except Mischa of course.)

Those chanel flap bags are adorable.Mischa is the first person I think of when those bags come to mind.

With the last pic of Lindsay Lohan,I don't know why she dyed her hair that dark.Red looks so good on her.

Lindsay Lohan dyed it dark for a movie she's doing right now... She said she was planning on returning to red when they were finished filming.

FWIW, middle aged usually means the 50ish range. Assuming the best possible scenario is that we all make it to 100 years old, 50 is the middle, get it?

Believe me when you make it to 30, you're not gonna see yourself as "middle aged"! :-)

but i think the original gist of the comment - that chanel is for older ladies - still stands
i always thought that too...but maybe it was a matter of older people finally having money rather than a certain age group liking the bags
living standards have improved, so shouldn't we all have the chanel flap bag now?

I believe, that to carry these bags off, one must have an innate sense of decorum, chicness and dare I say "prestige". Thus, on everyday girls such as the pretentious Ashley Olsen and Lindsay "Poser" Lohan, the bags lose a sense of mystique and decadence for me. Esp. since most of these young girls are trend whores who only garner a particular bag, because it's popular. It used to be that the brand Chanel, implied a sense of opulence and superiority, now it's just some iconic label, which uses celebrities i.e. Lindsay, Selma...to try and make more sales. IMO Chanel speaks for itself, but is significantly down graded when clutched in the paws of the nouveau riche.

"classical" as in classical music. i think the word "classy" is more suitable.

Blogger Harrods Girl said...

Actually what I meant was indeed 'classical', meaning that this bag doesn't go out style; can last many years. Of course, the Chanel flapbag is both classical and classy.

I don't think that you should operate your style with help of celebrities... Sometimes they really don't care what they are wearing... I prefer to follow the latest fall fashion trends if I want to be stylish this fall, or spring for spring...

30 is not a middle age.
People these days usually live up to 80 years old, so then 40 is a middle age.
For those that are 20 and already feels aged, wait till you're 40...hahaha

i think to have a chanel bag you have to know something about style and fashion to be able to pull it off at its best!! 30 is also not old!!
