Fashionista Friday: Bierlari’s Quilted Chanel Bag on a Dime

Today’s Fashionista Friday is a talented and skilled fellow Goodwill lover who has a keen eye for finding all things designer and incredible.

I first found @Bierlari while scrolling through the Goodwill hashtags, and this person’s page kept popping up when I’d click on photos to learn more. Most every photo of a designer item was taken by Bierlari. Then and there, I knew I had to fellow this feed!

So yesterday, I was scrolling through Bierlari’s page and noticed she found the Goodwill dream. She picked up an item that I’ve been seeking for years upon years. A Chanel quilted bag. I am in awe, shock…I’m jealous and excited….all of the above. I’m just so stoked that a fellow Goodwill love hit it big on the racks. Hats off to you, Bierlari!

So let’s take a look at this beauty!

It’s a black quilted Chanel bag that is in perfect condition. It is a vintage style, adorned with the signature gold chain and plaque.

The black is a luscious and deep color which almost makes it look brand new. I am absolutely obsessed!

What I love most about this bag is the style. A good black purse is incredibly versatile and can match almost anything. The quilted texture is also very classic and easy to wear, too. It’s well made, with a lot of attention to detail in the stitching of the quilted exterior.

A bag like this originally goes for thousands of dollars but guess what? Bierlari scored it for $17. That’s literally unheard of.

If you want to know how I’d wear it….I’d rock it with literally anything and everything! However, I’m envisioning that a sleek all-black outfit would like very modern and chic with this bag. The gold hardware would stand out against the black and really pop. That’s what you want while wearing Chanel – to be subtle yet sophisticated with a little punch.

If you scroll through the rest of her feed, you’ll see that she picks up other amazing designers and name brands as well.

More recently, she scored a ton of Just Cavalli (my fav!) as some contemporary brands like MinkPink. You’ll also see that she snagged a Michael Kors dark blue bag of a more modern style. Go check it out! If you don’t, you’re surely missing out.
