Saying Chanello at Turnabout Vancouver

Chanel is classic. Iconic. Idealistic. Feminine. Immortal.
I recently had the opportunity to get acquainted with a local designer consignment store here in Vancouver, a place that knows a lot about Chanel and the brand's loyal followers. I visited with Turnabout Vancouver's Granville location, and mingled with their many goodies, picking out three of my favourite (each, of course, Chanel).My picks were a silk and tweed dress paired with vintage black velvet pumps and a classic pastel pink crossbody bag.

1) Silk and Tweed Chanel Dress, Size 36


Iconic Chanel never goes without the legendary tweed fabric. Discovered by Chanel herself during a trip to Scotland, and inspired by menswear, tweed has been an integral part of the Chanel look since its first use back in 1924.

This modern Chanel dress pairs an iconic, durable tweed skirt with a delicate, modern silk top for a simplistic yet fashion-forward look. Simply amazing!

2) Vintage Chanel Black Velvet Pumps, Size 8


Reminiscent of the chain that lines the inner hem of each Chanel blazer, providing balance and shape, these vintage Chanel pumps transform the utility of the chain into their purely indulgent design, adorning the back of your heel and ankle as you slip them on. I saw these shoes, and immediately fell in love. Old school Chanel.... sigh.

3) Pastel Pink Chanel Crossbody Bag



And, finally, my absolutely favourite - a piece I simply couldn't keep my hands off of! Offering yet another use of the iconic chain - whether inspired by the horse’s bridles or the nun’s belts that presided over Chanel’s early years, we can’t say for sure - this pastel pink Chanel crossbody bag is a versatile piece of heaven. 

This quilted lambskin Chanel bag can be slung with ease and class over one shoulder, and is a modern take on the first Chanel bag created in 1929. From Chanel’s perspective, the strap offers a needed utility to the beautiful design: ”I got fed up with holding my purses in my hands and losing them, so I added a strap and carried them over my shoulder.”
