A vintage Chanel from my DH, looking like new again....

  1. I got this from my DH over 10 years ago for my birthday. :heart:It was a surprise gift from him...sure wish he would pick another Chanel for me for my upcoming birthday. It would be so much more romantic and meaningful, than picking my own gift...don't you ladies think so?:p

    Anyway, it was gone for 2 months for a major facelift from Chanel/France. The black leather on the front of the bag was faded out to brownish-black color, and the gold of the hw was looking faded out too. When I picked it up from NM, I was surprised to see the big difference in the refurbishing of the leather, and the replacement of all the gold hardware....I am in love with it all over again!

    It costed about $185usd for this total facelift...not bad I think.
