Like so many other ladies out there I have a teeny designer BAG FETISH!.  My first designer bag was a Gucci handbag over 10 years ago, then it just escalated from there to Burberry, Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Mulberry & many more.  This all started at a very early age but my all time favorite designer handbags are my Chanel Handbags.

My mum could clarify this when we both use to watch Dynasty back in the late 80’s and all I would talk about was “I love that bag mummy what that lady has with the Gold chain” That bag being a timeless classic Chanel.

My lovely Mum surprised me a few years ago while she was at the airport with buying me the Timeless Classic Lambskin handbag with Silver hardware .  She knew that this was my dream handbag and I absolutely adore it.  As the leather is so soft though I only use this bag for very special occasions.

When we go away we usually travel from Heathrow Airport. Terminals 3 & 4 both have a Chanel Boutique and I have since gone on to purchase another Chanel Classic bag along with some Chanel Ballet Pumps and Purse from there.

The savings I feel are great if you’re looking to invest in a Chanel Hanbag as you’re saving 20% on the price and with some of the Chanel handbag prices this can make a massive difference.

As I’m always being asked how much do you actually save and as I’ve recently visited the boutique at Heathrow Terminal 3. I managed to get some up to date prices for some of the Chanel Classic Bags for you:

Baby 2.55 Flap Bag £2,145
Small 2.55 Flap Bag £2,225
Medium 2.55 Flap Bag £2,479
Timeless Classic Small: £2,116
Timeless Classic Medium: £2,225
Timeless Classic Jumbo: £2,479
Maxi Flap Bag £2,691
Available in Caviar or Lambskin Leather
Medium Shopping Bag £933

Large Shopping Bag £1,033
Medium Bag: £1,191
Available in Black or Beige
Tote £1,333.00
Available in Black or Beige

And here's my lovely little collection...

Prices do increase each year for the bags and looking at my receipts which I always recommend you keep! there is quite a difference in price as to when I purchased them.

I hope this blog was useful and it would be great to hear what Chanel bags you own.
