Today at STYLEanthropy, we’re putting the spotlight on the stylish Regina, the lady who owns 71 Chanel bags and counting! I found Regina through the PurseBlog.com’s forums. There was a thread on a certain member, Regina07, from L.A., and her collection of Chanel purses. Being the bag lover that I am, I opened the thread and my jaw dropped. After reading, I found out from the thread that she has 69 Chanel bags – and counting. But I wanted to know more so I went straight to the source and asked this stylish lady a few questions. This interview first appeared in 2008 on my previous blog, My Fashion Juice.

A: It was a vintage medium lambskin flap that I bought secondhand from Craigslist.
- Q: Aside from Chanel flap bags, do you have other Chanel bags in your collection?
A: Most of my bags are classic flaps, but I also have reissues, GST and other (vintage) totes, and an assortment from other lignes.
- Q: Do you collect other designer handbags?
A: The other handbag lines I have are YSL, new and vintage Bally and Ferragamo.
- Q: Can we request some photos of your Chanel handbag collection?
A: Hi Cris. Thank you for asking me to be in your blog. I enjoy reading it. I’m attaching photos of the gang lounging on a bed. Thanks again.
