Celebrity Style: Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and the Chanel Stretch Spirit Cabas Tote




What's a girl to do when she gets fired finishes her run on Melrose Place? Dye her hair, join the cast of a Broadway show and sport the latest Chanel arm candy. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz dresses up her boho chic look with a Chanel Stretch Spirit Cabas Tote. This calfskin leather bag features a large Chanel logo on the front panel, the requisite chain/leather handles interlaced through the drawstring top and a wide span of stretch piping along the upper part of the tote. When I previewed this design at Chanel's trunk show earlier this year, I thought the bag was nice but nothing out of the ordinary. The "Kaiser" claims the inspiration for this design came from the classic Chanel ballerina shoe. Whatever. It's OK, but there are better, less expensive offerings for fall. The calfskin version (pictured) is also available in grey with black piping and creme with black piping. A vinyl rendition is considerably cheaper, and, frankly, it looks cheaper too. Prices range anywhere from $2000-$3000 depending on size and finish. For more information, contact your local Chanel boutique.

I'm a big Chanel lover, but not really feeling this tote...
