I Can Coco

I was more than a little smitten when I first saw the Coco Cocoon collection by Chanel. But since it will be a very long time before my next Chanel purchase, my eye was caught by a much less expensive version in John Lewis.

I had been searching for a navy blue bag for several months and when I first saw the bag, I couldn't decide whether I really liked or disliked it! I left it in it's place in the shop but as with any justifiable purchase, couldn't quite get it out of my mind. A lovely French blue, roomy enough for my daily belongings and reminding me vaguely of the Chanel version, I see this getting a lot of use in the autumn and winter months.

  8. The muted color schemes of all your pictures just melt my heart, they really do.

    Not only is the bag great, but I am so smitten by your neckline on that lovely polka-dotted dress! You not only make your clothes look stunning, but you have the greatest taste. The contrasting prints make my heart sing!

    You're so wonderful.

    Much Love,
    Norah xx

  19. I actually really like it. I can see what you mean, it is very striking and diffrent, a bit of a 'marmite' bag I think - you eeither love it or hate it!

  20. Such a cute bag it looks very similar to the Chanel purse, yet both have their differences which makes it not look like a copy. I loved how you paired the purse with your outfit as well.
