Miss Dior

I’ve been digging around in my closet looking for an item to donate to my garden club’s silent auction. A Chanel bag is always popular and I have a tan jersey classic that has not been worn in ages. But then I saw this Miss Dior ad shot on Jennifer Lawrence and had an ‘aha’ moment. My bag would be great with my Miu Miu grey coat below.

Guess I’m going to have to keep digging for something to donate…

  • I LOVE your bag and coat – truly a chic ensemble! Chanel’s true beige/tan is so special.

  • There’s nothing like shopping in your closet first! Great color combination.

  • As I always say “Compassion is always in fashion.” Kudos to you, Preston for giving to others!

    That coat is FAB and you are very generous to consider donating a classic Chanel bag like that one! I don’t know if I could part with it, you know? Their beige is SO perfect.

    Last summer I gave my mother a pair of Chanel navy tweed ballet flats with a burnished gold toe that were sitting in my closet and of course, I see that look everywhere now! Since it’s my mom, I can’t ask her to give them back to me, but I’m hoping she’ll let me borrow them….someday! *sigh*

  • Both looks are perfect. Your subtle grey coat beautifully offsets the Chanel bag. I really love both of these coats! Like April said, nothing feels better than shopping your closet!!

  • Don’t ever get rid of a Chanel purse. My dear mother gave away a LV messenger bag from 1995, and has never lived it down.
