This is one of my lunchtime quickie snaps around the city and it happened I was carrying my seasonal Chanel bag. Most seasonal releases I find are conceptually out-of-this-world but nevertheless beautiful, blame it to the eccentric boss Karl Lagerfeld. But this beauty that I was holding is more similar to the classic bag only this is lighter, single flap and has a shorter chain. The hardware is matte gold and the quilting is not as puffy. It is very lightweight albeit it has nautical charms attached.
Apparently, this is my first Chanel, back at that time when I purchased this I badly wanted a classic but it was just too much so this was a perfect alternative. Somehow, I can appreciate the value of this bag now because being a seasonal this is one of a kind. I normally use my classic bag during parties and one time I had to evade sitting next to the lady just because we had the same bag :)
I actually didn’t know how to title this post but when I was looking at the pics I noticed I held the bag in 2 different ways, I know I should have held it too like a clutch bag. But this was not scripted back then at least not even in my mind.
As for my outfit, this is what I look like typically at work. Trying to project corporate I have to wear a tailored suit or dress without being monotone and boring. All I need to add is a lined jacket which I left hanging on my chair.
Here I was standing in the public display of art outside the Museum of Sydney. This sculpture is called ‘Edge of the Trees’ and was installed in 1995. Several poles were made from wood, stone and steel which symbolise the first encounter of Aboriginal people with the white invaders.
I walked past here oftentimes when I get my lunch but didn’t know what these poles are. But I have to educate myself now that I have to blog about it. I guess that’s the advantage of blogging :)
