I think the undeniable stamp of being a truly successful teen is having Teen Vogue throw you a "Sweet 16" birthday party. Here's one of my faves, Chloe Moretz, carrying a cute little cream Chanel Mini Classic Flap Bag on her way to her Teen Vogue-hosted birthday shindig at Aeropostale in Times Square last week. Does anything scream 16 (in the best way possible) more than layering a leather moto jacket over a dress with tiny silk roses on it? I think not. As always, Chanel bags are available from Chanel boutiques and fine department stores only - the most recent price we could find for the Mini Flap is $2,400. (If you've bought one recently and paid more, please share!)
We just spotted Chloe Moretz in Paris a few weeks ago attending the Dior runway show with a Dior bag in tow (of course). Such refined (and expensive) taste in bags at such a young age! At that age, we were shopping at Forever 21 and, well, Aeropostale. We wouldn't even judge you if you were, Chloe.
