What Fits in the Chanel Small Flap
Today I’m going to show you how to fit all these items in the Chanel Small Flap!!
JUST KIDDING. Lol! Cmon, are you crazy?? You know there’s a second flap in there, right?
Joking aside, here’s what I typically carry in my Small Flap
- Two lip products
- iPhone X
- Credit cards / cash
- Extra random item (pen / mints / whatever)
I also occasionally fit my sunglasses (in a soft pouch). But it’s kind of annoying to have to stop in the middle of walking wherever I am, put the sunglasses in the pouch, and then put it in my purse. Does anyone actually do that?? Most of the time I just hang my sunglasses on my shirt neckline.
I know a lot of ladies like to use a card case with the Small Flap or Mini, but to be honest I don’t think you need a card case. I just put my cards in the little slip pockets of the purse (those slip pockets aren’t much good for anything else, lol). Standard credit / business cards fit vertically into the pockets, and they’re EXACTLY the right size for the bag to close without damaging the flap. I was really paranoid that the credit cards would be “too tall” and scratch or stretch the flap, but I checked 138430 times and I can confirm, they fit.
I’ve had my Small Flap since August 2017 and I’m very happy with her! There’s a perfect Chanel bag size for everyone… and the Small is the one for me. I’m 5’3" and the list above is exactly what I want to carry everyday, regardless of whether I’m using a clutch or a tote bag.
I know the Small Flap isn’t very popular because it’s priced a little weirdly. Most people would rather go slightly smaller (the Mini) and save appx $1k, or go slightly bigger (the Medium) for just a bit more $. But I say, look deep into your heart and don’t be swayed by such earthly concerns and get what you truly want!
