The grey is my numba one bag all the way, but i am using the vintage alot more due to bad weather rain etc.
Its always that way with me and my brand new bags, so the grey will be babied for a while, i love love it the most!
Happy belated birthday Rania! I love your modeling pics! Can't wait to see you in the grey reissue!
Did you just happen to stumble upon the vintage Chanel in Japan? How did you find it?
Hi Liz, I did some research on tpf and the web for chanel resale stores in osaka and kobe before i went to japan. There are many such stores all over, but they mainly have hermes. Walls full of birkins and kellys in every color combo imaginable, i was only able to resist due to the high reseller prices, approx 18000. They make you wear white gloves to look at the hermes bags that are brand new, i looked like mickey mouse but i wanted to see birkins and kellys up close so i can decide on which style, color and size to waitlist for.
There were no chanel jumbos anywhere in any store, i went to about 12, i was actually looking for a navy classic jumbo from 09a with ghw, but didn't find any color at all. They have black classic m/ls with ghw a dime a dozen, i saw some in good condition for as low as $1,500 but i already have that bag.
Finally i found a vintage jumbo and i always wanted a 12' vintage jumbo with the big cc clasp iin any color but black. So i decided to sleep on it and my next time in Osaka i got it. I bargained too and reduced the price by usd 200, it was awesome
Gosh, i'm so determined when it comes to Chanel
Totally agree about the color. You can wear it well with any color jewelry and looks great with jeans (what I like to wear). Supposedly the GST that is coming is light grey, wish it would be GHW:(
Do you think this combo will come again in the near future?
Great great bag, enjoy!
Thank you, yes it is very wearable! They don't do this combo often, but they did it in the classic flap in 2009 fall season and then in the reissue (the one in my pic) in 2011 spring. So judging by that lets hope we see it again soon, my sis is waiting on it too for a jumbo, and i would love to get more flaps in this combo
