The Chanel Gabrielle Hobo.

We’ve got the “in” to grab you the latest “it girl” bag, and we’re here to share the goods! The brand new Chanel Gabrielle Hobo bag is nothing less than spectacular! We just saw it IRL and all we can say is OMG! It comes in 10 different color combos, and each one is cooler than the next. Inspired by a binocular case, this “it girl” bag can be worn 6 different ways because of the double stranded chain straps. It is 100% on our wish list. But, the thing is, none of us can’t wait too long.  Our new Chanel friend in Detroit, Michigan, yes you heard us right, Detroit (which, BTW, has unbelievable shopping – we just returned from a shopping excursion there and were suitably impressed #happyclients ) Anyway, she said not to snooze or we’ll lose, because not only is it on our wish list, it’s on lots of other wish lists, too. Chanel is considering this bag a new classic. An updated, modern, must have, classic. So, must YOU have?? If so, give us a shout, and we’ll share our inside connection so you can be have this “it girl” bag before all of your friends.
