Who but the inimitable Coco Chanel (1883-1971) could utter
Chic In Chanel
words with such great authority and conviction? Amazing that today, 40
years after her death, the fashion world still craves her extraordinary
style and taste and honors her legacy through the purchase of over
$2.5 Billion worth of Chanel products per year (2010 figures). Indeed,
with 310 Chanel stores all over the world, this privately held,
gigantically successful company is certainly something that Gabrielle
"Coco" would be exceedingly proud of today.
Copious amounts of classic and coveted Chanel's have recently arrived at the shop! We're talking about those
Sensational Silk Scarves
recognizable, flirty little 'luncheon suits', jackets, dresses,
handbags, scarves and sweaters. Sporting the nearly perfect
marriage of tailoring and structured femininity and created with divine
fabrics and adorned with lots of double CC's either on buttons or
hardware or woven into the silk and wool patterns, these are truly
pieces that go beyond fashion and will

and did we mention the shoes, boots and vintage jewelry? Honestly, if
there ever was a question of the stability of certain investments, say
stocks, real estate or Chanel jewelry, clothing and handbags, we know
where we would put

money! But, we give you fair warning: this merchandise literally flies
out of Classic Collections and once it's gone, it's gone! It's
impossible to tell you how many times we have heard the saddest words a
retailer can hear... "What do you mean it's SOLD??? I wanted that"!

trite, but true: if you see something in a consignment shop and it fits
you perfectly, you love and can afford it...then for heaven's sake, BUY
IT! We can't 'order' you another one!!!
