Chanel’s Quilted Ankle Monitors

There is no such thing as a price drop when it comes to Chanel classic quilted bags. Investment pieces indeed — there is always a price increase year after year after year. For those of you cannot afford to spend a couple of grand on a new 2.55 comes a new cool mini "ankle monitoring" version which serves as an entry-level piece to House that Coco built. Chanel is smart. Very, very smart, no?
