Chanel Umbrella Bag

Chanel

Does it come with an umbrella?

According to Daily Style, "This gorgeous, classic umbrella

Wergth

is currently on sale at Bluefly for only $540 — a steal compared to its $675 retail price."

Lucky for you and your piggy bank, that Bluefly post dates from the summer of 2009 so the brolly's nowhere to be found.

Tell you what — if you've got the bag and the attitude, you've got the umbrella no matter what's really inside.
