Stylist Freya's 5 Fave Bags!
Working in Siopaella means we get to see all the amazing stock that comes in straight away...aren't we lucky!! Here is Siopaella Stylist Freya's 5 fave bags we have in stock atm <3
Balenciaga Orange Leather Giant 21 Gold Motorcycle City Bag
As someone who used to not be a big fan of Balenciaga at all my opinion has completely changed the past year or two! The motorcycle city bags are iconic in the world of designer handbags but what I love the most is how amazing they wear. They also now come in every colour and size you could ever want YAY! I absolutely adore the shade of orange this city bag is, how perfect for summer?!
Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy 30
Louis Vuitton Speedy's will always be a favourite of mine! I just think they are a bag that will never go out of style but they're also so practical! They're perfect for everyday without being too big that they get in the way. I fit my shoes in my speedy 30 and everything!
Fendi Monogram Shoulder Bag
Fendi is making a huge comeback at the moment and I, personally am LOVING IT! The Fendi 'Zucca' monogram is especially proving to be very popular with celebrities like the Kardashians, Bella Hadid and more! But get on this trend fast and grab yourself a designer bargain while you can because Fendi is becoming more and more popular by the day!
Gucci Blue Velvet Belt Bag
Everyone is loving the bumbag trend at the moment and I have to say they are super handy for holiday and festival season! Gucci are killing it with their collection of bumbags at the moment but there is something about this royal blue velvet one that is to die for. This baby won't last in Siopaella for long!
Chanel Matelasse Mini Leather Flap Chain Bag
You can never go wrong with Chanel..that's my motto! This mini flap is such a nice slightly different take on the classic flaps and it's such a perfect size for the evening! The gold chain adds that little bit more glam and will jazz up the plainest of outfits <3
Chanel - the 2.55, the Reissue and the Flap

We often get questions about the most coveted Chanel bag the 2.55 - the Reissue and the Classic Flap. But which is which? Are all three names associated with the same bag? What's the difference? We've compiled a reference guide to sum up all those queries :)
Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel herself designed the bag in February 1955. This being the 2nd month of the year '55 hence the name 2.55. The bag is comprised of a leather which has a worn appearance and the chain strap is a jewellery like chain. Most notable is the bags lock, a rectangular twist lock known as the mademoiselle lock. .
The Classic Flap
When Karl Lagerfeld became head of Chanel during the 1980's he replaced the bags rectangular Mademoiselle lock with an interlocking CC lock. The strap was also modified too. Instead of just plain jewelry hardware, it was interwoven with leather. This is know as the 2.55 classic flap

Then in 2005 Largerfeld redesigned the 2.55 (which was then the classic flap) to commerate 50 years and it featured once more the original mademoiselle lock and jewelry chain Coco had originally designed. This has become to be know as the 2.55 Reissue.
Technically, the name Reissue would only be associated with a bag that was produced after the original. However, the 2.55 bags with the mademoiselle locks have come to be known as The Reissue and bags with the interlocking CC are known as The Classic Flap, but both bags are the 2.55. Hope that has cleared up any confusion on the most coveted bag!
