Hey everyone, i thought you'd find this amusing. Went into the city yesterday (NYC is my homebase major city) to take advantage of the warm weather and walked the eight blocks between 62nd st and 69th st (went to visit hermes and gucci) on Madison Ave... had to score some guccissima heels that were on sale at gucci, which i did, but that's for another thread... ANYWAY, i, being obsessive about handbags, basically "handbag-watched" my entire walk both ways, and I have to tell you that of all the lux designers these fashionistas and park ave moms/matrons were carrying, Chanel won out. Gucci came in second, LV third, and surprisingly, I saw only a couple of Hermes (that's before i went into the hermes boutique). And the chanel bags were one of every style... meaning not one person was carrying the same bag as another person carrying chanel. a cambon, an outdoor choco brown tote, a mini purse with a tiny handle, a bowler, flaps, and a KHAKI baby cabas, which looks fantastic outdoors!! it was great!
