My Chanel Half-Moon WOC bag review post is long overdue – I purchased it in December 2013 but didn’t get around to writing my review until now. This is definitely one of my dream bags – I love the durable pebbled caviar leather, the classic black color and the embossed cc design – it’s the perfect special occasion bag!
SIZE COMPARISON OF CLASSIC QUILTED WOC AND HALF-MOON WOC
While I will always adore my Classic Quilted WOC (dimensions: 4.5 x 7.5 x 1.8 inches), I like the larger size and extra capacity of the Half-Moon design (dimensions: 4.5 x 9.25 x 2 inches). Because of the pouched design, you can stuff the Half-Moon WOC and still have it close easily, whereas the rectangular shape of the Classic Quilted WOC is more structured and rigid.
WHAT FITS INSIDE A HALF-MOON WOC
I definitely have to down-size my essentials when using the WOC. Here’s a picture I took last year during fashion week: I put my cards and cash in a small LV case, added two lip products and my iPhone – there was just enough space left over for my camera and business cards.
HOW TO WEAR A CHANEL WOC
One of the reasons I love the Chanel WOC is because of the multiple ways you can wear it. You can keep the chain long for casual day wear – and make the strap shorter for formal occasions. You can even tuck the chain inside and use it as a clutch. (To adjust the strap length, you can loop the chain and tuck it in under the flap – double it for a shoulder bag and triple it for hand carry).

What’s your favourite Chanel bag? I’d love to own a classic flap one day – but I don’t think I could ever justify one given the current prices!
