Video: Chanel Square Mini and WOC Comparison

Another day, another handbag video! This one had been requested but was also a video I had been planning on anyway – there’s nothing I find more helpful than comparison videos on YouTube, especially when the kind of money that Chanel demands is on the line! This comparison is looking at two of Chanel’s smallest bags (if we’re excluding the extra-mini): the WOC (Wallet on a Chain) and the Square Mini.

I’ve had both a while now (although I did buy the WOC this year) and it’s safe to say that one has gotten more use than the other. The mini I use pretty much constantly whereas the WOC rarely sees the light of day. I go into detail in the video but essentially I find the size and the chain length to be a little constraining.

Nevertheless, I can see the appeal of the WOC for those who enjoy a more minimalist lifestyle! I hope you enjoy the video and find it useful – and as always, thank you so much for reading/ watching!

    Hi Amie,
    I love love love your mini. I am having the hardest time finding one in caviar with SHW. I love Chanel but why do they make it so hard to find and buy their handbags? Anyway, I'm convinced that I should buy a mini instead of a WOC after watching your comparison video. Thanks a bunch!

      I totally know what you mean – I have literally spent the last two weeks obsessively trying to track down a particular Chanel bag… it's been exhausting! The mini is a fantastic size – I would wholeheartedly recommend!
