Vanessa has a dual career, as both an antique dealer and a feasibility/project manager but she is single-minded when it comes to her accessories. Last conversation we had, Vanessa was planning a trip to Paris to shop for bags and eat cheese – so here’s something for the shopping list – only the cheese will have to go (stick to just baguettes I say)!I say)!


The Chanel “Diamond Forever” Classic Bag $261,000

This is one item you won’t want to return if you are lucky enough to get it for the holidays. Debuting in December, the “Diamond Forever” classic bag boasts 334 diamonds totaling 3.56 carats, set in 18-carat white gold hardware. The long shoulder straps are made with the same white gold.
