What is you do at Harrods? I would love to see your full collection of bags, they are my weakness! Great blog!

Hi Claire,

Love your blog and bag collection! Awesome 🙂
I am crazy about bags as much as you are and need your advice on what CHANEL to get first?
Classic flap in lamskin or BOYCHANEL?Just think BOYCHANEL is a bit more ‘me’ but classic is also delish!

HI Ally,

I have images of most, if not all of them scattered in my blog. Please follow me by clicking on “follow me” icon. I blog mostly about what I buy. Yesterday i bought Chanel shoes and a Celine mini luggage bag. So you might enjoy it.

Ok so let’s talk Chanel!

I have written about Chanel bags many times on the blog. I talk about how to spot a fake one and why every girl should invest in one (have a read.)

I 100% think you should invest in one. The price increases on average twice a year by a hundred pounds each time. So worst comes to worst you can always sell it and make some money.

For your first buy you should buy a classic! They are timeless and make the best investment. Do not make the mistake of buying a seasonal bag because it is a cheaper option, you will regret it and still feel the need for the classic.

The sooner you purchase the better. Why? Because next year or in six months time the price will increase and you will regret not buying it at the cheaper price.

With regards to the Boy bag. I LOVE IT!!!! As soon as it was launch last year I had to have one. It is a classic so it will be a good investment. I agree with you that the Boy bag is more me. It is true to it’s name “boyish” but then it is still Chanel therefore will still be elegant and feminine. This is me: a girly girl with a boyish side. I do feel it is more trendy and edgy. If I had to give my Chanel’s away and keep one I would keep the Boy bag.

Make the plunge and do it. You will enjoy the moment you buy it so much and love it forever. Please please let me know if you buy oe and what one you choose.

I hope this helps you and you become a follow on my blog? On one of the tabs one is listed “Ask Chouquette” I would appreciate it if you could re ask the question you emailed me on the blog.

Best Wishes

Hi there! I saw your DIY tutorial on the spiked iPhone case, and I was just wondering if the screws scratched against the back of your phone at all. I’m planning on doing this, and I was just worried about that.


Chouquette August 24, 2012 - 8:37 pm

Hi sorry for the late reply! The answer is no the studs do not scratch the phone. When I take the case off it leaves marks but they wipe off. If you are worried you could stick a layer of tape on the inside. I have seen a few shops have done that. I hope this helps. x

Hi Claire!

Hope your well, and that you had a lovely birthday also!
I love all of your gorgeous Virgo’s Lounge dresses on here so i decided to check out their website for myself.
I wanted to order the emerald green velvet dress with embellishment but they are all out of stock! Would you know when they re-stock? Or if you would be able to get hold of one for me in a size 8?
Please let me know asap sweetie as I absolutely adore it!

Lots of Love Hollie xxX

Claire – love your blog – I was wondering if you could help me – I would like to purchase my first pair of Louboutins but could tell me if they are true to size? I am thinking of going for a nude pair and play it very safe so that I get the most wear out of them….what do you think?! P.s. you have the most enviable wardrobe ever! Hope we get to see pics of it! xxx

I would love to know how you budget for your bags? Would love to have a collection like yours. Do you buy a bag every other month ?

Chouquette August 23, 2013 - 10:18 pm

I will talk about this soon when I upload photos of my bag collection. It’s not quite once a month but close! I just work really hard and priorities buying bags and shoes over essentials. I have a few methods and rules I live by so I will share this all with you. xx
