What fits in a Chanel WOC?

A lovely reader wants to know what fits inside a Chanel Wallet on Chain (WOC). Erm....not much if you have a mega-sized phone like mine. If I'm out and about all day, I always bring along the battery charger which unfortunately is rather bulky. There's the usual stuff that I tend to bring - the Oyster card, Network Railcard, debit and credit cards as well as some cash. Ooops. Totally forgot to photograph my keys but just visualize it in the collage.

There's a side pocket on the flip side of the flap which has a very deep pocket. When I'm traveling, I tend to stuff a few notes and a back-up bank card just in case I have the misfortune of being nicked by a pickpocket. You can slip two passports down the same pocket with ease. On the other hand, if you forego the battery charger and own a smaller smartphone, there's space for a lipstick, tissues and mints.

  1. Thank you so much - that was my request and a big help! I always cart round too much, I think a small bag would discipline me more ;)

    1. My pleasure! I'm the same. I lug around my massive Speedy bag because I feel more comfortable carrying my entire home with me at all times......until my shoulder protested from the extreme weight.

  3. i've been saving up for a chanel and the great debate is between a WOC or the maxi. Very helpful post - good to know what the WOC can reasonably fit :)

    1. Sher, I was *this close* to buying a Maxi. In the end, my badly injured shoulders couldn't take the extra weight. BTW, the caviar WOC is way heavier than the goatskin.

  4. Phew, I was panicking about the lipstick. I would forgo the battery charger in favour of lippy xx

  7. That is such a pretty bag! *_* Also, I don't know if they are made for Samsung, but they make charged phone cases for iPhones; it's basically a phone case that you can charge together with your phone, and when you're on the go and out of battery you can turn the switch on the case and it will start charging your phone, so no need to carry a charger! It's a bit bulkier than a normal protective phone case, but it's really a life saver for when you're out and about! :)

  8. Suki, I've got my eye on a similar charger. There's so much available for iPhones but not a lot for Android phones :( It'll save me from having to lug around an additional charger.

    1. They should really get on with making similar charges for Android phones... The one for iphone that I have is called the Mophie juice pack and it gives me the charge of a whole battery. Hold on... I just checked their site, apparently they have them for Samsung phones too! Here is the page:

      I got mine 1 year and a half ago so I think all their models are updated now and maybe have even more charge power. The only bad thing is that the one I have is quite bulky, but the ones for Samsung look a lot slimmer. Though I think the bulkiness is definitely worth the extra battery on the go!
