Pink Chanel Bag & Stripes At Palais Royal

Chanel Pink Bag by Stella Asteria Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger

Taking photos at Palais Royal is almost mandatory when in Paris, so that’s what we did on Monday. But first, please let me introduce you to my new pink Chanel bag and mules that I finally added into my collection.

I have been chasing these mules for over two years now, but every time I went to a Chanel store on my travels (because no Chanel store in Greece), they were either sold out or not available in my number and/or the color I wanted! And by the way how annoying when this thing happens right? Anyway now these babies are finally mine, as well as this pink Chanel bag and I intend to write a blog post about them and why Chanel is so worth investing for.

Wearing more pink is one of my new year’s style resolutions as I love this color and always thought that it doesn’t suit me much. Even when I was a baby, my mother used to dress me in blue clothes and everything blue, so as a result everyone was telling my parents: “Oh what a cute little boy”! I don’t know if pink suits me or not, but I love it so much to care about it.

Funny facts of that day:

#1  On our way back home, we stopped at a café near the Forum des Halles, and I randomly met Serena from Singulier Féminin! 😀 For those of you who already know her from Instagram and her blog, she is even more adorable in person! The funny thing is I was thinking of texting her to meet for a coffee next week a few minutes before I saw her! What are the chances right?

#2  I was so excited with my new purchases from Chanel, that I forgot to take of the blue protective stickers of my pink Chanel bag’s hardware! I only noticed it when we supposedly finished the photo shoot, so we had to start over again while we felt the first drops of rain. But it was pretty funny.

#3  The fact that you are allowed to take photos at the Palais Royal (blogging-wise, it is actually mandatory), and not in front of Thessaloniki’s Concert Hall is really beyond me! At Palais Royal, not only you are allowed but you are actually welcome to do so. We left a bag with our tripod nearby, and a lady who was working at the building, came down and kindly asked us if she can give it to the security guys, as to reassure it would not get stolen or something. How amazing was this? Which brings me to fact number four.

#4  Where the heck is these ‘French rude people’ anyway? I have never met a single one so far here in Paris, neither during my travels, nor for as long as I live here. Except of course for the doorman in the Greek embassy. Who was Greek! Freaking stereotypes! I am so thrilled to live here! It was the best decision I have ever made!

Wishing you a wonderful month of March, full of happy moments!

Much love,

    Good Morning darling!

    Your funny facts really made my day! 🙂 Good to know, that I am not the only one who would forget price tags or anything like that an clothes and shoot an outfit with them… HA! 😀 I am so thrilled to see your outfit in front of Palais Royal! Your pink Chanel bag and coat, along with the striped shirt looks so perfect in front of this location! Just WOW! I hope I will be able to buy a little (or maybe a little big) something at Chanel someday <3

    Have a wonderful day lovely!

    Love the shoes, Love the bag, Love the location, Love the styling and LOOOOOOOOVE the pink on you! I can’t believe you ever thought it didn’t suit you… it is stunning with your hair and skin colour, I think. Gorgeous shoot.

    I totally agree with you on the politeness and friendliness of Parisians. I have never ever had a moment of rudeness, and I spend a lot of time in the city. Enjoy your week, darling Stella! xx

      I am so glad to hear that from you, so I am not crazy haha! Parisians are amazingly polite and friendly, and are always keen to help in any way! From my landlord to my gym staff, everyone I have met has been so kind! And I love their sense of humour by the way! 🙂 SO glad you like my look and pink on me my dear Lisa! You really inspired me actually to incorporate some color in my daily outfits! Hope one day to master such looks as effortlessly as you do! Have a great rest of the week my dear! xoxo

    Oh I love your outfit, especially the pink coat and purse, it looks fab paired with black and white. I enjoyed your fun facts, and I totally agree with the last one. When I was in Paris, everyone was so lovely and polite.

    What an adorable colored coat. We used to call it sugar pink. Don’t know if it s called that still. I think I ‘ve mentioned that I hated pink when I was younger. Reminded me of a horrible medicine I was given. But now I can’t get enough pink.
    On my travels, I find if you treat people as you would wish to be threaded, everyone is more than helpful. Must look at that coat again.
    Hugs, Jo x

      Hello my dear Jo! That’s true, but there are some people beyond rude, no matter how you treat them! But the great thing is they are not in Paris! I agree with you, and I also find that stereotypes are so far from true! I am very glad you like my pink coat, I would say it’s sugar pink too! 🙂 Hope you’re having a greta week so far! xo

    Hi hi Stella! First off, you know I absolutely love pink and it suits you! You are so sweet, pink is definitely one of your most suited colors! 🙂 I love the pink bag and that’s amazing that you finally got shoes you’d been hunting for. I can’t believe you ran into Singular! That’s amazing! Honestly, my last 2 trips to Paris were amazing. People were so, so incredibly nice! 🙂 I’m glad you’re having an amazing time in Paris. I’ll keep in mind not to leave my bag sitting around in the Grand Palais! Sounds like it would be a disaster. These photos are amazing, and you look like a dream, Darling. Have a wonderful week!


    • 02/03/2017 / 09:46

      I only know Serena as Singular. haha. Correction – Serena!

      Happy Friday my love! So glad you like my look and pink color on me! I would love to take some pictures with you next time you’re in Paris! The last time we barely managed to see each other haha! However I doubt anyone would steal our equipment at the Palais Royal, they just kindly warned us just in case. 🙂 Hope to see you again soon my darling! Happy Friday and have a great start to the weekend! And thanks for everything! <3

  12. 02/03/2017 / 11:26

    I think you look lovely in pink and should wear it more often! I’m happy you finally managed to get the shoes after waiting for such a long time! The bag is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing these lovely photos! Happy day!

    Dearest Stella. Have you ever been so incredibly happy, but don`t know why?
    A silly question, I know. Especially now you are living in Paris; are with the Man
    of your dreams; and get to wear the most beautiful of outfits.
    For some unknown reason (and are they not the best ones?), I have been feeling incredibly happy
    these past few days. Could be because I am getting more oxygen into my system. And when
    I build up my overall strength again, I will be over the Moon.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend.
    Ever, Jo x

      My dear Jo, yes, like most of the time haha! But now I am so happy that I read this from you and that you feel this way! Maybe it’s cause spring is coming? I don’t know but I really wish you feel that way as much as possible! I really believe you will build up your overall strength again, spring and more oxygen will really help. Taking it one day at a time, remember? 🙂 Wishing you a great start to the week dear!

  15. 03/03/2017 / 22:14

    I like how the shirt conveniently “matches” the black and white on the site – you irradiate happiness Stella !
    Of course the joy of a new handbag would also make me forget to remove the tags. Hugs.

    One of the most iconic Stella look! Beautiful outfit and photography.
    On my first trip to Paris, I had quite of number of negative experiences with people.
    I can’t complain this time around, people have been kind and helpful.
    Have the French changed or perhaps my attitude has? I can’t really say…I am so happy darling you’re enjoying your time in Paris.

    Love from

      We had this discussion with @luxitgirl and Jesca the other time we met. I think it’s probably you, meaning that when we are biased about someone/something, we are usually attracting it accordingly. I am so glad you liked it this time, and promise it will be much better next time you come! Hopefully with weather weather than the last one haha! Kisses <3
