  1. Welcome my Chanel Reissue 226 So Black Chevron in Sheepskin: the perfect everyday bag that can transition from day to night! This leather is not soft like lambskin. It feels very durable, even more so than caviar, and I really like it because I won’t worry about it. This is my first So Black and I love it! Shopping around for So Black, I realized there are different types of the black hardware. This one seems shinier and durable, like it won’t chip (fingers crossed). I like how even the bottom is Chevron - the classic flap is not.

    Now I really feel my collection is complete for a long while. I think this makes #21 or #22 bags in my Chanel family.

    I apologize in advance for my terrible mod shots. I am no good with lighting and taking selfies.

  12. Thank you each and every one of you beautiful bag beauties! I can’t believe I’ve lived 1/2 a century!! I have seen how bags have evolved over the years. The Chanel classic flap wasn’t even invented until I was in my late teens!! I can only imagine how much further bags will come along in the future.

    I started my bag love at the age of 7, when I bought some leather and sewed my own bag, and for 43 years since, I have been obsessed.
