  1. I just got a black Cerf tote with gold hardware (one of these days I will get around to doing a reveal of my purchases over the last few months) and would love to accessorize it with a cute bag charm. Does Chanel make bag charms? The only one I have seen is a lovely tiger charm posted by nscwong, but I have never seen these in stores. Does anyone know if they are available and what options exist?

    Also, would it be tacky to accessorize with a LV bag charm, one that doesn't have the huge "LV" on it?

    I have thought of getting a scarf, too, but don't know if that would work for me. Maybe a cute leopard print?

    Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated!

  2. Jennifer,

    There are a few charms that Chanel makes...one of them is shown (an ice cube charm) on the Chanel website under the fall/winter collection of jewelry. The only one I've ever seen at my store was a blue heart one with gold hardware and pink writing. The only other thing I can think of which I don't know if it would work for the Cerf are the camellias. I also don't think it would be bad to accessorize with LV charms like the cute flower ones that are out right now :smile:
     
  3. Thanks, I:heart:Coco. I think I am going to check out the LV charms tomorrow. The Ice Cube wouldn't work for me because I want something with gold for the gold hardware.

  4. How about China doll key ring? Have you seen that before? But the doll may be too small as a bag charm.
     
  5. Hey Jennifer!

    My friend got me this super duper cute Chanel keychain/charm thing that I think would look ADORABLE on a black cerf. I will try to find pictures of it but it's basically a thinner version of the leather chains that is on the flap and attached to the chain is a resin CC, a camellia, and a Chanel 5 bottle. I'll take a pic or look for one for you!
     
  6. that was pretty mello_yello_jen!
    someone already scooped it up! ahaha
     
  7. 10C had some keychains/bag charms. I bought blue roi bag charm and saw yellow and red too. I'm not sure if they are still around, but I did not find my bleu roi until wayyyy after 10C had came and left

  8. Thanks for the suggestions! I will have to look around more next time I get to a boutique. I am pretty sure my local NM has nothing like these.

  9. Question: Although not opposed to bag charms, do you find it can scratch the leather?
     
  10. I have the same concern.
     
  11. I think it would depend on the charm and whether it has hard or soft edges. It would also depend on the leather. I would not put it on a lambskin bag, but the Cerf seems pretty durable.

  12. No scratches I have encountered, but I don't carry blue roi often at all. I wouldn't leave it on an everyday lambskin bag, but I would not be worried with caviar (like the cerf).. Congrats BTW! Can't wait for your reveal to see what other goodies have followed you home :graucho:
     
  13. I also have a Cerf tote in black, but with silver hardware. I bought a few ribbons/twillys as accessories for it from Hermes and LV. I also bought a cute ribbon from Tiffany's which feature their signature keys on it.
