Another holiday season behind us and a new year to look great is upon all. If it´s January, it must be the start of the awards season. The first presentation that sets off the red carpet brigade is “The People´s Choice Awards.”

The unique part of this particular award show is that the recipients are not voted on by their peers but rather their fans. The 2011 ceremony was hosted by the sultry Queen Latifah and the stars shown bright in their vibrant attire on Wednesday evening.

Raven Symone - former child star of the “Cosby Show,” all three socialites - the Kardashian sisters, Malin Akerman of “Twilight Eclipse” fame, and top country singer Taylor Swift were just some of the stand-outs attending.

There's no getting around the fact that real flair starts with the right accessories. In designer handbags, one particular designer has stood the test of time and has remained the number one People´s Choice to women as a must-have in their lifetime; an authentic classic styling Chanel purse.

Although she is well-known as part of the Paris scene, Coco Chanel hit Hollywood by storm for a short period and was the top costume designer in the early 1930s. She dressed the top stars of the time that included Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Gloria Swanson. American women identified with the simplicity of her sense of styling.

Color is the highlight for the coming season and was shown in every resort wear Chanel´s classic purse won´t disappoint. Year after year, the ease of stylishness can easily be had with the pre-owned Chanel Sling Bag in pink. This is the one to  lift any woman´s spirit bright.

The eternal classic of this Chanel used handbag is constructed with the softest quilted lambskin.  It features the characteristic interlocking CC logo clasp in golden tone hardware with turn lock closure.  The pre-owned Chanel Sling Bag offers the signature Chanel single metal chain shoulder strap intertwines with pink leather. It is a practical design, because it simply slings over the shoulder.

The authentic Chanel Sling Bag stands above the other classic flaps by its distinctive multi-colored charms adorning the strap. Think of it as a Chanel charm bracelet for a great purse. The interior has a good deal of room despite its mini size with fine smooth lambskin lining. It has the embossed Chanel name in gold print and one open pocket.

If the first red carpet event of the season is any indication as a prelude of things to come, 2011 will be an exciting and fashionable year, but an authentic Chanel lasts forever.
