Chanel’s “New” Bag: Friday Fun

There’s nothing like recession-era creativity…

This “fashionista” came up with a great way to get your designer fix on a budget- design your own “Chanel bag” out of a brown paper bag and paper clips. Let’s hope “Grocery Store Chic” or “Supermarket Style” catches on as trend (a “Bottega” handbag made our of plastic bags and those plastic hand carts? A Commes de Garcon jacket made out of plastic bags?).

Sometimes you have to make it to fake it…
