Lesson Learned

I made a rookie mistake, one that I still carry with me, literally. I bought a brown Chanel bag; It was my first Chanel purchase and I made the exchange in person at their Rodeo drive store. I was 24 at the time and I spent my first bonus check and then some on the brown bundle of joy.
  A few months later I was gingerly skimming Vogue online and I read something that caught my eye.  A big wig editor commented and I quote “Chanel doesn’t do brown” the article went on to say that you should never invest in a brown Chanel handbag. His comment did not fall on deaf ears; Chanel embodies class, style and sophistication in which case Black is a more suitable choice.
Don’t get me wrong I am not above sporting my brown bag, but it is a lesson learned and a lesson I am happy to share.  Better to learn from others mistakes, rather than making them yourself.
