A Chanel-inspired purse
Last weekend in New York, I spent some time shopping in all the cool Soho boutiques and found a true gem: Sissy. The store specializes in gorgeous leather handbags of all kinds, including clutches, slouchy hobos, cute totes and messenger bags. I was definitely tempted by this Chanel-style purse by glamRock. The long golden chain and quilted texture are reminiscent of Chanel's signature handbags, but at $69, you won't have to pay high-end designer prices. I also realized how convenient these kinds of purses are; when walking around crowded New York City, you really need a purse you can just sling across your shoulder, not a big handbag you have to worry about lugging around from subway to sidewalk.
The shiny patent leather finish and purple satin lining add a touch of glam, taking the purse from daytime sightseeing to nighttime partying.
