Chanel-Deauville-Clutch-With-Chain

Remember when the first Deauville handbag came out? It was a large but distinctive colorful tote and everyone loved it. The name Deauville is inspired by a seaside resort in France and whenever you think about Chanel + Deauville, you can expect a bright handbag made in Canvas. Now introducing the first-ever Chanel Deauville Clutch With Chain Bag from the Cruise 2018 Collection.

The Design

Chanel-Deauville-Clutch-With-Chain-3a

The Clutch With Chain is already a well-known handbag. It’s famous for substituting the Wallet On Chain Bag because it’s small and less expensive. We’ve written an extensive comparison page about the differences between the Clutch With Chain and the WOC.

For this season, Chanel melted the Clutch With Chain together with the Deauville Design. This bag is beautifully crafted in canvas. The pops of color is ideal to wear during the spring and summer moments, but you can also match it with the right winter outfit as well.

One important identity of the Deauville Bag is the signature logo printed on the front. As you can see, the logo is crafted in large size and it reads: CHANEL, CC, 31 Rue Cambon Paris. If you have never been to the 31 Rue Cambon boutique before in Paris, then you need to go one day. Go there for the experience.

The Interior

The Deauville Clutch with Chain is a tiny but cute handbag. The interior is only big enough to store your essentials. The inside is made with three pockets; the center compartment is the biggest.

The Sizes And Prices

Style code A84415, measuring 3.9’ x 7.5’ x 1.6’ inches, priced at $1125 USD, €1100 euro, £1020 GBP, $1535 CAD, $1850 SGD, $9600 HKD, $1710 AUD, ¥146880 JPY, 5800 MYR via Chanel boutiques.

7 TIPS FOR BRIDES PLANNING THEIR OWN WEDDING

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Photo: PixabayPhoto: Pixabay

You found the One and you two can’t wait to spend the rest of your lives together! Cue wedding bells! Wait – who booked those?

Get ready. From the moment, he gets on one knee till the last dance, planning your wedding will probably consume many of your waking hours.

From choosing the right custom bridesmaid dress to finding a talented graphic designer to create beautiful invitations, there is certainly a lot to do when planning your own wedding. Fortunately, this article is designed to help brides to be to plan a stunning wedding with as little stress as possible.


1. CREATE A NON-NEGOTIABLE BUDGET

Figure out a realistic budget. Have a discussion—or several—with your fiancé and any parents who may be contributing. Do some ballpark research to get a sense of what things cost. Be realistic about the figure you all arrive at together, and be specific about how it will be divided.

No one should go into debt in order to finance a wedding. (Wedding Wire has some helpful rules of thumb for mapping out a budget).

2. PRIORITIZE WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU AND FORGET THE REST

It’s worth repeating: Prioritize. A budget of any size can explode when the must-have list gets blurry. But prioritizing goes beyond the budget. You, your fiancé, and any involved parents will each have their own assumptions about how things should go. Talk it through—calmly—and decide what matters most, and what you’re willing to compromise on.

3. MANAGE EXPECTATIONS.

For yourself, your fiancé, parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, you get the idea. Traditional weddings are designed to involve everyone important in your lives, so it’s only natural that people are excited to find out their role in the big day and everything leading up to it. Especially if you’re planning your wedding yourself, why not channel everyone’s excitement into delegated tasks?

However, be prepared for things to not go exactly as you imagined. People may add their own touch to their task. Roll with it. Does your Mom love to knit? Does his Mom dabble in crafts? Ask your Mom to crochet coaster favors, and ask his Mom to make the guestbook.

Most people will be flattered to participate in the big day. And keeping them busy—especially Moms—also means you’ll get fewer emails about the shape of the dessert spoons, whether the program ribbons need to be curled, and what shade of ivory the aisle runner should be.

4. DIY, REALISTICALLY.

Never has there been more opportunity to Do It Yourself than when planning your own wedding. The question is: is that the best use of time? After assigning projects to family and friends, step back and evaluate. Am I good at DIY projects? Do I want to tie a sprig of rosemary to 247 menus? And on a larger scale, do I want the responsibility of research rentals for lighting, tables, chairs, room dividers, and the like?

If the answer to any of these is a resounding NO, then you’ll want to think carefully about volunteering for DIY projects.

For those who are interested in giving a few DIY wedding projects a go, consider using an image search engine like Pinterest or Google images to unearth a few easy yet impactful DIY projects.

5. CHOOSE THE IDEAL VENUE.

After the budget conversations settle, choose your venue. It’s—hopefully—the biggest expense you’ll face, and it will be the biggest factor in the rest of the decisions that need to be made.

Non-traditional wedding venues are all the rage of late, but they can also be logistical nightmares. Traditional venues have basics like tables and chairs in place in addition to less obvious basics like place card tables, coat check, and other necessities that you won’t have to think twice about.

Traditional venues also tend to have an event coordinator who can be a secret weapon, especially if you’re not using a wedding planner. Instead of spinning your wheels inventing a venue, consider spinning your wheels adding meaning. Choreograph a group dance, reinvent a family tradition or two, spend time asking Grandma about her wedding.

6. DECIDE ON AN OFFICIANT.

Justice of the Peace. Religious figure. Friend who took that online course. Regardless of who you choose, make sure they are available for the venue date. Pay a deposit if necessary, and rest easy. The other reason to book the officiant early is that depending on your arrangement, you may meet with them several times before the big day. Booking ahead will allow for spaced-out meetings and room for rescheduling.

Officiants can help provide space and guidance for important topics. Will you be changing your name? Do you both want children? How many? How will you manage your finances together? Are you writing your own vows?

7. KEEP IT SIMPLE

Whenever anyone says to you: “You have to have X,” or “you have to do Y,” ignore them. It’s simply not true. As long as the basics are covered, don’t let anyone bully you about extras. And in this day and age, wedding planning is mostly extras. Don’t be fooled. You and your fiancé get to start the rest of your life together. Enjoy it and don’t sweat the small stuff…too much! 

CONCLUSION

By following the tips and strategies outlined in this article, you’ll be well on your way to post-wedding bliss. Remember that setting a clear budget and clear expectations with key individuals are the best ways to avoid unnecessary wedding-related stress.

CHANEL PRICE ANALYSIS: IS IT CHEAPER TO BUY THE CLASSIC BAG IN THE US?

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel-Classic-Flap-Bag-price-analysis-us-fb

On mid November 2017, Chanel increased the Chanel Classic Bag prices in the United States. The price increaseshouldn’t have come as a surprise because the last time the prices of the Classic Bags went up, was in May 2014. That’s almost 4 years ago.

Chanel Classic Bag Prices In The US Comparing To Other Countries

Last month, Chanel increased the prices of the Classic Flap Bags. The Extra Mini, New Mini, Mini Square, Small, Medium Large, Jumbo and the Maxi Sizes have all jumped.

Naturally, the Reissue 2.55 Flap Bag prices followed. So the 224, 225, 226 and 227 sizes went up as well.

If you’re looking for the latest Chanel bag prices in your country, then visit our page: Chanel Classic Bag Prices.

If you want to know how much tax-refund you get for each country, please go to Guide to Tax-Refund.

In this section, we’re going to compare the current US prices of the Classic Flap Bags (and the Reissue 2.55 Bags) with the prices of other countries.

And we need to answer this burning question; is it cheaper or more expensive to buy in the United States comparing to other countries?

To conduct this research, we took the Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag as an example. Then we lay out the prices of other countries next to the US price. The countries include Europe, UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan. And the prices we took from these countries are calculated after the TAX refund.

The Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag is currently retailing for $5300 USD.


THE MEDIUM CLASSIC FLAP BAG PRICES AFTER TAX REFUND PRICES CONVERTED TO USD
Europe (Italy) €3853 euro => $4584 USD
UK £3431 GBP => $4622 USD
Singapore $7012 SGD => $5206 USD
Hong Kong $38500 HKD => $4928 USD
Australia $6182 AUD => $4704 USD
Japan ¥534985 JPY => $4772 USD
*Prices converted to USD according to the currency rate of December 2017.*Hong Kong does not have sales taxes or VAT. So the retail prices are final prices.

So here’s the conclusion. Buying the Classic Flap Bag in the United States is more expensive than other countries except for Singapore. If you’re an US citizen, then you’re better off buying in Australia or Japan. But Europe will always be your favorite place, because it’s where you can buy the cheapest.

Was It Cheaper To Buy Chanel Classic Bags In The US Before The Price Increase?

Why did Chanel increased the prices? Was it because the Classic Bags became more attractive to buy in the United States?

To answer this question, we compared the previous prices of the Classic Bags in the US with the current prices in other countries.

And for the other countries, we used the prices after the tax-refund. We want to create a scenario; if you were an US citizen or a tourist, where could you’ve purchased your Chanel Classic Bag the cheapest comparing to the US?

We have also selected the Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag as an example for this research.

Chanel Classic Bag Prices In The US VS Other Countries Before The Price Increase

Before the price increase, the Chanel Medium Classic Flap Bag was retailing for $4900 USD.


THE MEDIUM CLASSIC FLAP BAG PRICES AFTER TAX REFUND PRICES CONVERTED TO USD
Europe (Italy) €3853 euro => $4584 USD
UK £3431 GBP => $4622 USD
Singapore $7012 SGD => $5206 USD
Hong Kong $38500 HKD => $4928 USD
Australia $6182 AUD => $4704 USD
Japan ¥534985 JPY => $4772 USD
*Prices converted to USD according to the currency rate of December 2017. *Hong Kong does not have sales taxes or VAT. So the retail prices are final prices.

According to the table above, purchasing the Classic Bag in Europe was still more attractive before the price increase. The most expensive place was in Singapore but the other Asian countries were well in-lined with the prices in the US. Of course there are gaps between the prices, but that’s due to the currency fluctuation.

Chanel Seasonal Bag Prices In The US Comparing To Other Countries

Chanel-Chevron-Statement-Bag-2

Chanel Chevron Statement Bag

The other day, we received a message from a lady who was interested in purchasing the Chevron Statement Bag. She compared the US price with the euro price. What she has found out was that this bag was not cheaper to buy in Europe, even after the VAT refund. So we double-checked and it’s true.

So here’s the full analysis:

In the US, the price of the Chevron Statement Bag was $2700 USD.

The price in Europe was €2236 euro (VAT excluded, so it’s the price after VAT-refund). If you convert this euro price in USD, then you get: $2660 USD. Remember, this is the price AFTER VAT refund.

The Chevron Statement Bag is only $40 USD cheaper to buy in Europe. But its the price AFTER VAT REFUND, which means you need to go through the whole tax refund process to match the US price. So in this case, you might as well buy in US, it will save you a lot of time and hassle.

The conclusion of this seasonal bag story:

  1. The Chanel Classic Bag is currently more expensive to buy in the United States comparing the countries listed in the table above. But it doesn’t mean that EVERY Chanel Bag is.
  2. Always compare the prices of every country before making any assumptions
