The Medallion bag is another Chanel classic that makes a perfect everyday bag. Not only is it a great size, but it can be worn as a hand bag or shoulder bag!
The Medallion bag used to be a classic that Chanel offered every year. But, it was discontinued. Sometime in 2013, they disappeared completely from Chanel stores. Now, this beautiful bag is available only in the resale market.
It's not hard to see how this bag can easily become an everyday favorite. Btw, if you watched The Hills, you'd know that this was one of Lauren Conrad's favorite bags.
This tote, measuring approximately 12.5 x 10 x 6 inches with a 6.5 inch handle/shoulder drop, is a fashionable shoulder bag or hand bag.
Both the exterior and interior of this structured tote is made of leather.
Weighing about 1.5 lbs, the bag can easily support 4 lbs of contents. Unless, you like to lug around a TON of stuff, this bag will cover your everyday needs along with some extras.
This bag is loaded with full-sized flat slippers, a long wallet, large cell-phone, small notebook, Kindle, phone backup charger, tube of lotion, and other miscellaneous small items, and it's still got room for additional belongings!
Oh, and it's big enough to support an IPad too!
One thing to note about the medallion bag is that its straps have a tendency to flop to its sides over time and over use. This usually doesn't make the straps fragile or likely to tear off, it just means that it won't be rigidly upright when the tote is not being worn.
