Making Adjustments to Jumbo Chanel Flap Bags

In an earlier post, I briefly talked about adjusting the length of the straps on Chanel bags. Chanel flap bags tend to have longer straps than most shoulder bags out there and the length can be somewhat awkward. When I bought my mom her jumbo Chanel, the SA briefly showed me how to shorten the straps since I was complaining about their length. I finally tried it out for myself and here is a quick tutorial on this simple trick:

1. Open the bag and adjust the strap until you get your desired length


2. Pull a ribbon/string/shoelace/etc. through the two loops


3. Tye the ribbon


4. Place the extra straps inside the bag


*Before*


*After*

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to adjust the length of the straps and now I'm totally excited that I can make about three "different" purses out of just one!! There are other ways of adjusting the straps but this one is so easy even I can do it :)

i didn't notice that it was blurry, i usually only look at the pictures as it on the blog instead of clicking on each picture... but

(1) your arm look a little awkward in the other one
(2) the composition of the this one is slightly better than the other one
(3) the bag is awkwardly hanging on the other one, (which is the point of the whole strap adjustment i guess haha).
(4) everyone is much more attractive when shrouded in mystery.... especially boys. hahahhaa

Hello Miss Purse Addict! I'm in awe of your amazing collections!! I have been thinking of buying a classic Chanel purse but it seems like only vintage stores and websites carry the one I want. I've been thinking of the one like the red one you have, I was wondering if you can give me some tips or pointers as to where to buy it and what to look for? Thank you and Happy New Year to you and yours.
