fredmonkees.comFORWEBCan any of us afford a little piece of Chanel? Well, I covet the buttons. And we can buy buttons. And it isn’t even Fashion Friday, yet.

First of all,  today’s blog resulted from my friend Susan McChesney posting a video on the classic Chanel jacket on her Facebook page. Then I Googled Chanel buttons and discovered the jewelry that has cropped up with Chanel buttons.  Here’s an article about it. Pieces are available for $200 to $390 — still not everyday pricing, but it is Chanel, vintage Chanel, at Monkee’s. A lot of sites offer Chanel buttons, but not everything is genuine, I am guessing.

Trellis in Erie, Pa., has a selection. So does Traditions Unlimited in Erie. Call them and a few vintage stores and ask — you might find some gems that will have you wearing Chanel.
