Resort to Floral Embellishments!

Just like last year's resort collections, this year too designers have included 3D flower embellishments in their collections. But this time, instead of the big size flowers, more of small flowers have been seen concentrated in substantial quantity on skirts, dresses and jackets. I have always admired simple silhouettes with intricate surface designs and that is exactly what Resort 2015 has to offer. Flowers always look fresh and pretty, when they blossom off bodices as appliqu├ęs and rendered in lush fabrics. Blooming in flower power gives you that sweetness and incredibly feminine look. Whether it be pastel or bold colours, they'll look exemplary for garden parties and brunches.

The CHANEL 2.55 - An investment worth it!

The Chanel 2.55 (Classic Flap Bag) is well-known for its iconic status in the fashion industry and has been a wardrobe staple for many fashionistas. Its a style statement, an investment, status symbol, and but of course a utility product. It's a noted fashion product spotted on the rich and famous. But, for many others it's like an investment. People save for months to fulfill their dream of owning this classic flap bag. It's one of those luxury products which can make your heart skip a beat. You just don't want to own it because it carries with it a status symbol. Instead, it has sentimental value attached with it. For me, I just admire the very fact that this bag was designed to overcome a major issue that women faced every day in 1920s. And now, this very bag is on the list of top luxury products to invest in. I admire its design and moreover I admire the feeling which comes from owning it.

Chanel 2.55 - Classic Flap Bag

Originally designed in 1929, the Chanel 2.55 is an updated version of the original design. The bag is named 2.55 after the date of creation, February 1955.

The bag's lining comes in burgundy color. There is a zippered compartment at the inside of the front flap. The backside has a back outside flap for storage of money/documents. The double-chain shoulder straps are attached by leather-threaded chain inserted though eyelets. The bag features a lock in the shape of a double CC logo. The bag has a quilted diamond or herringbone pattern on the exterior.

Several variations have been introduced which come in different colors, leather/fabric combinations, metal and interwoven leather straps and the lock, mademoiselle vs. interlocking CC.
