Piece One // Chanel Bum Bag

style of sam, five piece french wardrobe, chanel bum bag, chanel waist bag

Technically, this isn’t the FIRST piece that I acquired this season, but it is the first that I wanted to show y’all.  Yes, it IS a fancy fanny pack… hence the reason I like to call it a “Bum Bag”.  Those British know how to make things sound so much more sophisticated!  :)

I’ve been wanting one for awhile, but Chanel does not make these for their current collection anymore.  This has been one of my saved searches on ebay for the past 2 years.  And this little beauty came up with the right price, size, and shape.

Okay, so here’s the question.  Do I think that I will wear this everyday?  No, but I think that this does fit my current lifestyle {with baby} and this is a piece that I WILL wear time and time again.  {So cost-per-wear wise, it works!}  It fits my cell phone, lipstick, credit cards/license, and keys.  Therefore, I can have the baby bag and be wearing something a little special for me.

Let me know what you think… was this a totally silly purchase or considered justifiable?  And stay tuned tomorrow… I’ll show you how I wore my Chanel Bum Bag!

  1. It’s really cute. Im all for hands free when you have little ones because the purse is the last thing on your mind when they need to be held/fed/burped :) i think it’s a great buy! My kids are finally getting old enough where i can bring my shoulder bags and clutches out of storage, but I still remember the days of my messenger bags and fanny packs.

    1. Thanks for the vote of confidence Jane!! I wanted something kind of “stylish” for being hands-free. I do have a nice bag that I double as a diaper bag, but I wanted something smaller for just my things!

      And I’m glad that you decided to keep that YSL muse bowler. Besides the fact that it isn’t made any longer, it’s the PERFECT neutral color. Not to mention, you can carry as the bowler or on the shoulder – SO HANDY!!!

    1. Thanks Mica! I’m going to try it a little more casual soon! Hopefully I can get pictures. I’m always amazed bc you manage to snap pics daily! I get barely get out of the house on time!

    1. Thanks Kim!!! Hope you’re doing well! I still always think about you when doing yoga!

      I’ve been hunting for a Chanel bum bag on ebay for awhile now!
