A little peek into one of my Chanel goodies...:D

It's been a long time since I did my Chanel reveal....the last time was 3 months ago in April.

So, here's a little peek into one of my Chanel buys.....guess what it is? I didn't buy 1 but 2 of these in different colors.

Voila! 09P Chanel "Smoking Tuxedo" high heel sandals!

A very quick modeling picture of the sandals....

I love these sandals, the booties with 2 bows, and pointed bow flats from this Smoking Tuxedo Collection. This collection is available in the following 3 materials:
1. mesh with polka dot/CC logo/no. "5" logo prints with grosgrain bow and trims (the version that I bought)
2. all satin version
3. sequined quilting version with a statement Chanel brooch-like jewel in the middle of the bow (this version costs more than US$2K though)

Well, I can't convince myself to splurge on the US$2K sequined version, and the all-satin version is way too common for me, so I opted for this cute and fun mesh version. I'm loving the polka dots and the Chanel logos on the mesh material. And of course, I'm crazy about bows!! Anything bow will make me "melt" instantly. Hehehehehhe!

But it's not the end of the story yet.....
I originally bought the above all black version in mesh (the mesh is in black color) which my friend helped me bring back home from Paris in June. However, after 2 weeks, I saw this white/black version which is even better! So, what the heck?! I bought it instantly!

Left shoe: White/Black color combo
Right shoe: All-Black version

Quick modeling pictures of the white/black version...

This white/black version is unbeatable! I love how the white-colored mesh shows the logos/polka dots way more clearly than the black version, and the white/black color contrast makes this pair of shoes much more interesting.

What do you guys think?


  1. I like the black on black better... ^0^ just b/c in the picture, the white on black look a bit more like plastic, even though I know it's mesh. I might change my mind if I see it in person though. The design on the other hand is very elegant and it'll definitely be a stunner with some evening gown.

  2. Hi Betsy! How are you doing? Thanks for stopping by. Hehehe...really appreciate your thoughts. Black on black is stunning as well, but I just find that the prints on the black mesh don't show up when wearing the shoes on. So, it looks like a plain pair of black sandals from afar. Maybe it's the picture, but the white on black doesn't look plastic at all IRL. :P Evening gown is a great idea. But I seldom wear evening gowns now. So, I'll be wearing this pair of shoes with slacks or jeans instead. :D

  3. Hi Mia..the more i look at it, the more i love your shoes. especially the black on white. I have seen this in i am seriously thinking to get one for myself too...;p

  4. Oh Hi Little Fish!! How have you been?!! Miss you lots!! Thanks for dropping by this new blog of mine. I am trying very hard to keep this blog updated. Hehehehe. try on this pair of shoes. It is really cute and special. It's quite high though, but I think you will be able to manage it. Go get them, fishy!! Yay!


  5. I also love this Chanel heels .......... oh..I originally want to get the booties though but forget about finding it.....haha...

    It is so glamor on your feet!!!

  6. Oh Rachel! You have to get the booties with 2 bows! I think you can totally rock them with your mile long legs! Get the mesh ones, not satin ones though. I think they are on sale. Find them find them!
