And I agree with you and pasha, those accessories are tacky. Everything was better 2000-2005 as far as Chanel accessories.
lol, that is hilarious. Was it your social-conscious response to the logo-mania frenzy of the late 90s?

I have two pairs of authentic Chanel earrings, but used to have three. The third pair I had replaced and/or repaired a total of three times before I told them I wanted to get something else in exchange so ended up getting a very plain necklace, just a metal chain with a small metal CC on it. Of one of the two pairs of earrings I have now, the little plates that are on the back of the earrings that are the "authentication" stamps have both fallen off. These earrings were over $300, I wear them maybe 2 times per week and I've never worn then in the shower, or to bed. I truthfully don't think the costume jewelry is worth the money. Just my opinion.

^ Personally I find that it depends on what the jewelry is made of. I have a leather/metal cuff which I can wear anywhere/doing anything and it never shows a mark. Some of the pieces with diamante/pearls can be a little delicate though...

Having said that, I have quite a few vintage pieces and none of the metal plates have fallen off (touch wood).

tbh, i don't think there's a lotta difference quality and material wise between costume jewelry from Chanel and H&M/Accesorize...

It's sad to hear everybody about the bad quality of Chanel jewelry... I wear daily a few pieces of them, like broche or a chain/necklace, but never had any problems with it...

I forgot about this thread...its so good to post in it again...I have had my Chanel fur wallet repaired once, the zipper on it which connects to an interlocking CC had gone off the track at the beginning of the zipper, so it would only zip down along one side, and the purple leather that is on it has faded of course over the almost 7 years I've had it, but I still get comments on it, always from girls, who say, "That is the coolest wallet I've ever seen!"
Girls at Whole Foods, girls I've worked with, oh its endless.

Yes, some sort of teen rebellion I reckon.

zimbio.com
and also this cashmere stole from the fall-winter 2009/10 pre-collection.

How much is a Chanel logo necklace? I'm thinking of something quite simple, not pearls

^ You can probably get a simple one for between $150-$400, depending on the size and material and whether it's seasonal or classic.

Hope that helps
