The Northeast prepares for the arrival of fall with a bout of dreary, rainy, grey weather. It is the perfect cuddle under a blanket drinking coffee while watching all of your favorite shows return weather. It is also the perfect weather to bring back a Chanel classic from the Paris-Shanghai (Métiers d’Art 2009-10) collection to brighten your day.

This is not mellow yellow, this is an in-you-face bright and sunshine-y yellow. On top of that, it is the Chanel Classic Flap in alligator skin yellow. Yellow is said to be the color of happiness and I can tell you this, when I look at this bag I smile from ear to ear.

While this bag is from a past collection, bringing it back to your screens for an end of the week drool session felt like a great idea. Of course I love a good exotic skin bag and Chanel seems to create it so perfectly. I don’t know if their alligators come from the pot of gold at the end of a double rainbow, but it sure looks like that.

Both good news and bad news is that this bag is no longer available. But there will always be more luscious Chanel bags, season after season. That you can be sure of.

    It’s brilliant. <3 I was first D: at the fact that it's no longer available, but who am I kidding, even if it's available there's no way I can afford a croc Chanel right now. :D

    I really don’t like these bright yellow/yellow-green bags. I wish I was in the middle of some nice fall weather. We will be stuck in mid-eighties still as fall arrives here.
