    hi heather, sorry for the late reply but i am on the road in asia right now. i have seen bamboo in person and it really is too bright IMO. my fav shade of green is olive so i def find bamboo too “primary” a color to work with my wardrobe. i think as a smaller accessory it would be ok for a pop of color, but i’d rather have a birkin in a more neutral/subtle color. i think, however, it is worth a looksie b/c each person reacts to a color differently. you might fall in love on the spot when you see it! anyway, by now you might have made your decision already, so let me know how you did!

    Hi Larkie, Just stumbled upon your blog. I have an important question (to me) that I would just love for you to answer. I have very similar taste to you in handbags. Several classic flap Chanel, Hermes Evelyn in Etain….My question is, I was offered a Birkin in Bamboo today. I have been waiting for an olive green or some neutral color. This will be my first Birkin a major purchase for me. What do you think of “bamboo”? It looks like a very pretty “grass green” I just wonder if it will be too loud for me? I am going to see it tomorrow. It is on hold for me. Please help!!!!
    I am usually very decisive but this is a big decision and most of my friends would just roll their eyes at me for even asking!

    Hi! I think I sent you a message in TPF already after I saw your chanel bag collection which I also saw in this blog. You are probably one and the same person. Haha! What a coincidence.

    I wanted to ask for the contact number or email of your Chanel SA in brussels. TIA!

    This doll is a classic toy that has brought joy to many girls for decades. The Zhu Zhu Funhouse also has a nearly permanent spot in the top 10 toys overall. Christmas season is fast approaching.

    Hello! I love your blog, everything about it. i was wondering if you can post pictures of your closet. I want to know how you store or display your collections of bags, shoes and all of your chanel items. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s curious ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you

    Hi Aileen! i don’t store the bags in their boxes. I had them in glass display cases but have recently moved them to open shelves. i’d read about mold in humid areas so i think it’s better to keep bags in well ventilated, open spaces. Hope that helps!

    Hi Larkie!

    I wanted to ask you what is the best way to store your handbags? I have heard it’s not good to store them onthe boxes. Thanks!

    Hello – I’ve really anjoyed perusing your blog – you have an amazing sense of style and adventure!

    And I’m glad to see that there’s life after lawschool that doesnt involve billing hours…

    I read on TPF (from Nov. 2008) that you have an amazing tailor where you get your Chanel jackets altered – would you mind sharing your secret, either here or via my e-mail? I have a few Chanel jackets I love that I bought online, but they could certainly fit better – I just haven’t found anyone in LA/OC that I trust yet..

    Thank you for the inspiration!

    Thanks very much for the reply – especially when you are travelling. I’m dying to use my bag today but the weather forecast is rain (typical English weather) …
    Wishing you safe and happy travels!
    After seeing pictures of you and the camera bag it’s inspired me to think about one for myself… very handy the top zip opening. I’m starting a love affair with Chanel and I think you’re to blame ๐Ÿ™‚

    hi ZhanQiu! i have heard about a product called Apple that some people use to protect/clean their Chanel bags but I’ve never actually used anything on my own bags, including the exotic ones. But for sure, the color transfer is a concern for light colored bags so the best thing to do is to keep it from rubbing against jeans (or anything!) and out of the sun which may cause uneven fading in the leather. I’d just be careful in using it, but my main rule is to enjoy the bag!! If an emergency happens, there is still help from the experts at Chanel.

    I’ve just discovered your blog. You have an AMAZING wardrobe. Your “anemic-grey” croc is stunning. Can I ask for some advice? I just bought an off-white jumbo 2.55 reissue today. And the store was not very helpful in giving tips on how to look after it – except give advice like not to wear it with jeans (??!!) or other dark colours, and basically don’t get it dirty …. Is there any sort of protective spray or cream I can put on it? or any leather cleaner I should buy to keep at home in the event of an emergency (before I can get it to the nearest Chanel boutique).
    Appreciate any tips you may have. Thanks!
