Fashion Bucket List Item: Chanel 2.55 Handbag

It's just another one to add to the ol' fashion bucket list. The Chanel 2.55 handbag.  This bag is so iconic that it has a wikipedia entry specifically for this style.  Here's a little history on the origin of this bag...

"In the 1920s, Coco Chanel became tired of having to carry her handbags in her arms and decided  to design a handbag that freed up her hands. Inspired by the straps found on soldiers’ bags she added thin straps and introduced the resulting design to the market in 1929.

After her successful comeback to the fashion industry in 1954, Chanel decided to update her handbag, for the modern woman. The resulting design was called 2.55 after the date of creation, February 1955."

Bury or cremate me wearing this.  I covet this bag and will acquire this at some point.  LOVE.
