Chanel Ashtrakan--Got MINE Today!

  1. I am so over-the-moon!! I may be the only TPFr to LOVE this bag. (Haven't seen others mention!!) It is TDF in real life! I want to use it today even though it is crazy hot outside

    My reasons for following in love...
    -Has the same 'feel as a classic chanel but with an edge
    -roomy (14x9x5) but more tailored to go with the fall's sophisticated clothes
    -sturdy chain...looks more like the original chain with substantial leather braided through but NOT heavy.
    Love the modern chain but alas, too heavy for me!)
    -the texture is crazy...feels so good to the touch and is so interesting.

    Attached are some photos which don't do the bag justice. I know ChanelBoy said this was his favorite collection of the fall....I now know why! What do you think...?
