Reviewing my Chanel mini flap bag to help you stay on trend without the guilt

After passing high school to graduating college and hitting my thirties, eyeing the ultimate classic flap bag for years, the outpour of admiration for the classic Chanel flap bag didn't seem to fade away as it continued to be an arm candy among many Instagrammers and influencers even today. 

Are Chanel flap bags worth it?

Because the prices of Chanel classic flap bags have risen astronomically I was struggling to pay off for this stellar beauty. A few months ago I was starstruck by a Chanel mini flap bag sitting in the preloved market. As they say, “preloved luxury is the new way to stay on trend.” The time felt right and so did the price tag. And voila, I added the Chanel mini flap bag to my arsenal this year without breaking my bank account. Initially, only the economical price tag enticed me, but then I uncovered the exponential perks of the secondary market, including the hard-to-get editions, mint condition designer labels, and sustainability advantages.

All thanks to Dallas Designer Handbags, a genuine preloved hub boasting an in-house professional team that vigilantly validates the authenticity of preloved designer handbags from enterprise devices, I got my preloved mini flap bag. After using it for three months, here I am reviewing the Chanel classic flap bag for you all. 

But first, 

Why is the Chanel classic flap bag so popular? 

While reviewing the classic Chanel flap bag I am trying to be as explicit as possible. The classic Chanel flap bag is the most sorted iconic style of the brand for its timeless design. Due to its exponential demand, unparalleled iterations are released every season while enduring the volatile fashion trends. 

Let's dig a little deeper into the aesthetics to review the Chanel classic rectangular mini flap bag in detail.

Aesthetics 

Rectangular or square? This is the first question that comes to mind while reviewing the Chanel classic flap bag. To be honest I was instantly sold when I saw both designs. I truly love how the luxurious structure brags a little sense of sophistication adorned with the classic details accented in the classic Chanel flap bags. 

In the spirit of my Chanel mini flap review, the classic Chanel look stays true to its elegance in the mini flap bag. And honestly,  it’s the matter of aesthetics that makes me a big fan of the rectangular iteration.  In addition to that, I always wanted my first Chanel bag purchase to be reminiscent of the stellar large medium versions.

Without exaggerating, while reviewing the Chanel classic flap,  I honestly feel that the rectangular staple in black quilted lambskin leather with silver hardware is a no-brainer for many of us. Taking me from 9 to 5 grind to coffee dates and family festivities, I am pretty much in awe of how this mini flap bag accentuates my mood and style at the same time. 

What is the most popular size in the Chanel classic flap bag? 

Unsurprisingly the Chanel classic double flap bags sizes from small to medium to jumbo and maxi to set your mood and needs. From the extra mini rectangular version to that large maxi flap bag, despite the comparison of the Chanel classic flap bag size, you have all the space you need to stow away your essentials.  Although I have this thing for mini designer handbags, it all comes down to your preferences when you are investing in Chanel classic double-flap bags. 

For me the size of the mini flap bag is personal. It is the perfect size that works for me both day and night.  The bag measures 7.8” x 4.7” x 2.3”.

While further elaborating my review on the classic Chanel flap bag, the mini versions are equipped with a single flap which facilitates me to show off this beauty as a crossbody or a shoulder carry with a  23 inches strap. But if you want to slay your style for a more formal look, I would review the Chanel mini flap bag with top handles, a first-class pick for special events. 

Exterior

I certainly don’t want to miss out on the magnificent exterior while reviewing the Chanel classic flap bag.  Once you get settled on the right size, then comes the leather details. I am a sucker for lambskin leather. Nothing oozes royalty more than the lambskin leather that feels luxurious to the touch, and the color stands out due to its smooth finesse.  On the other hand, caviar is more scratch resistant but the downside is that if it gets scratched you can't buff it out with a microfiber cloth. And last but not least, the iconic CC twist lock oozes regality accented with the punch of that polished silver hardware. 

Interior

I am not exaggerating an inch when I say that this Classic Chanel flap bag is making it to the Instagrams of every fashion blogger. According to my review of the Chanel classic flap bag, I adore how the classic CC lock opens into a high-quality leather lining that fits tight with no creases, or bumps. Moreover,  the interior of the Chanel mini flap bag features a zipped pocket and a back pocket with perfectly aligned and neatly placed stitches that exhibit the immaculate craftsmanship of the artisans. 

Is it capacious?

While I am penning down my authentic review about the Chanel classic flap bag, the bag's usability holds utter importance.  The lightweight ergonomics add a punch to its style, comfort, and functionality. This leather handbag feels rugged and holds its shape, and trust me it holds enough!

How do I plan to style it with my fall wardrobe?

The quilted design of the flap bag complements well with my fall wardrobe. My winter wardrobe entails a lot of fur coats, camel coats, and turtle necks in cream tones, and black naturally fits into this color palette. In compliance with my review of this Chanel classic flap bag,  whether it is any social festivity or nighttime gathering, I can flaunt this bag at all times of the year. 

Is a Chanel classic flap bag a good investment?

Splurging thousands worth of money on a mini bag sounds overwhelming but my genuine review on Chanel classic flap bags is that it is one of your purchases that quickly turns into an investment. This mini bag holds more retail value than its counterparts because of its limited availability on the shelves of the fashion house.  The mini flap bag can yield 99% of its retail value in the preloved market. According to my review of the Chanel medium flap bag, even if it sets you back $8,800, its resale value has increased a whopping 17.25% in the preloved market. 

In keeping with my Chanel classic flap bag review, I love how it makes a statement with my monotone outfits. I can wear it on rotation as it conveniently compliments my wardrobe. Not just that, I believe it is a practical choice for my everyday routine.
