WINDOW SHOPPING: Vintage Chanel Gold Cuff, $2,420
Every once in awhile, an item comes along that is a once-in-a-lifetime find. It’s now or never, and you just have to go for it. This is one of those times. (Or it would be in or dreams, at least.)
In our minds, vintage items are always cooler than new items. No one else will have exactly the same thing, and there’s probably a story behind it. But when that item is vintage Chanel, like this cuff, it becomes five times as cool. It’s a piece of fashion history. And yes, this one is a little banged up, but we prefer to think of it as well-loved — it probably traveled the world on the wrist of its incredibly chic previous owner. If this cuff could talk, we bet it’d have some pretty interesting things to tell us. Unfortunately, there’s only one left at Shopbop and it’s selling for $2,420, so we guess we’ll have to pass on this once-in-a-lifetime find. Still, isn’t fun just to look?
