Since 2013, I've been obsessed with this vintage quilted Chanel backpack. I've been spying it in the resale market and waiting for the right price. Well, sometimes, trying to save money can bite you in the butt.
Since then, this bag has made its appearance on more and more celebrities. Because this vintage Chanel backpack is already quite hard to find and because backpacks have been a huge fashion statement particularly in the last few years, this Chanel backpack has become way more pricey.
In 2013, I recall seeing this bag sell for less than $1000, as witnessed here. Now, this bag is selling for well over double! Sometimes, waiting for the right price is a fool's game.
Miranda Kerr, Ariana Grande, you hot celebrities, please stop wearing this backpack, so that maybe, just maybe, the price of the backpacks will go down? Actually, I don't think that's likely. People have caught on to the gorgeousness of this vintage find.
In general, I've had a huge crush on black leather backpacks. They're playful, sexy, polished, and somehow just a little bit... naughty? So, I'm dedicating this post to 5 gorgeous backpacks in everyone's price range. Enjoy!
The Louis Vuitton black epi Mabillon is a bag that I've been eyeing as well. I've had this backpack in the past, and it is very classy and polished. I actually gave away this bag and have been regretting it ever since.
It's totally different in look from the Chanel bag. While the Chanel is my ultimate wish, the black epi Mabillon has some strengths. Black epi is VERY durable and ages very well. While not advised, even wearing this sweet little backpack in the rain is unlikely to result in damage.
And, since it's Louis Vuitton, the value and quality of the bag will likely remain over many years.
Naturally, being so obsessed with black backpacks has lead me to a lot of online browsing. More time than I'd like to admit... But, anyway, this Barney's bag and the couple below have really caught my interest.
This Barney's backpack (here) is a fabulous find for several reasons. One- great price with the DEEP sale discount. Two- genuine black saffiano leather means durability and luxurious detailed workmanship. Three- it's in a stunning classic style.
Priced less than $50, this stylish vegan leather rucksack is already sold out at Nordstrom. It's still available here.
This summer has already presented many events where a backpack was perfect. And, since I have yet to score my vintage Chanel backpack, I purchased this Aldo one here.
Its larger size is very functional, and the fact that it's not a Chanel makes it easier to set it down at music festivals.
While the workmanship and details are not what I normally like, it's still an incredibly fashionable bag that has garnered countless compliments.
Hope you enjoyed this post. What fashion item have you been obsessing about?
