That Chanel Hula Hoop Bag is a Fool and Y’all Know It

The past four weeks, it’s been Fashion Week somewhere in the world. Folks like Claire of The Fashion Bomb and GabiFresh have been to like four of them (New York, London, Paris, Milan) and I know they’ve seen all types of fashions.

But what takes the cake (and some of the icing too) was this bag by Chanel.

Chanel Hula Hoop bag

MA’AM. WHERE ARE YOU GOING WITH THAT? That was my first query.

That, ladies and gents, is a beach bag, supposedly. It’s basically a giant Chanel clutch glued to black hula hoops. TADA!!! You’re beach ready now! O_______O

People are talmbout “is this cute?” NAWL. It looks like one of Barbie’s accessories. Chile, Karl Lagerfeld is cutting up with this one. He was like “lemme make something really ridiculous right quick and slay everyone.” And he did. And people swooned. And I don’t understand.

Someone somewhere put in an order for that bag the minute the model got off the runway. I just KNOWED it. And it prolly costs like $14,361.64. FAH WUT, I ask??? Folks will buy ANYTHING with a label on it. Just impressionable dinnamug. In fact, I expect one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta to be carrying this next season, thinking they’re stunting. Sidenote: I’ma miss Sheree ol’ faking self. 

But check out how the bag looks like it weighs more than the model herself. Realest talk. It just looks really cumbersome. Chile… WOMP.

It looks like Gulliver’s earring. Maybe you could roll it down the street with a stick. Iunno whatchu ‘posed to do with this bag.

I ain’t e’em gon ask you if you’d buy it. But let’s say it was FREE and someone gave it to you. Would you rock it? And to where?

    I would for these reasons

    1.I’m always looking for a bag that has enough space between shoulder and waist to carry my baby.

    2.I’d have diapers, wipes, meals, toys, the potty and summo in there without space issues.

    3.My daughter LOVES to hulahoop. Hopefully its multifunctional and separates. *insert images of each of us hulahooping (me holding a baby) in the middle of anywhere*

      Giggles, chuckles, full out laughter. That is the most impractical bag. Where do you put it when not at home? I couldn’t put it anywhere safe at work. I like my purse on the front seat, but this would have to be stowed in the trunk.

        Lol..nope. you need to attach a uhaul to your car to transport that bad.

        Some trunks won’t e’em store this bag. It can’t e’em go in a 2-seater car. Just cumbersome for no reason.

      LOL this bag will not be “in case of emergency… HULA HOOP!”

    I will not rock it but I will be at Dollar Tree tomorrow morning. They always have hula hoops in sale. And because I am unique, I am making mine with a 21in carry on luggage with 360 spinners and Ankara print. Lol…I am about to get paid!! I am sure I can find someone to spend their financial aid money on it.

      LMAOOOOO!!! The fact that you’re right is just… folks gon go cash they refund check money for this. SMDH

    No way in hell would I have that on a CTA bus/train; morning & evening rush is already a b!tch & a half…

      You would have so many people mad at you and tweeting about how folks got tripped up by some lady’s hula-hoop bag!

        Okay, probably low on their usual dose of Starbucks and ready to fight me. Naw, I’ll pass on the bag.

    I would NOT buy it BUT If someone gave it to me, I would return it to the Chanel store and buy as many jumbo 2.55 bags as the credit would allow LOL

    I need to believe that if I open that flap, inside is a Go-Go Gadget beach chair, in which case I would feel slightly less certifiable taking it to the beach.

    Over at the Jezebel blog, a writer got drunk with a friend and made one. It looked pretty close to this foolywang-looking bag. Not cute at all.

    This bag give a purse-snatcher a whole lotta leeway. And you will look like Bo-Bo the Fool because he can snatch your bag and roll away on it like on a unicycle. The police will laugh at your entire ass for this.

    I would take this to the airport and try to board a plane with it. But only if someone else had paid for the ticket and I really didn’t want to go.
