I've been a long time tPF member/lurker. I'm usually on the LV forums but recently I've fallen for so many of the new Chanel bags Anyway, I need some help deciding on which Chanel I want as my first one. I've always liked the caviar flap but what drew me into Chanel initially was the grey reissue that they released in 2005. I missed out on it though and saw it on eBay last year. I guess I'm just debating whether or not I want to spend $1k to around $2k probably on something that'll just end up in my closet after several months at the most. I have tons of LV so picking up a Chanel will be a big change for me. I prefer buying new bags from the boutique but I probably don't have that option if I want the reissue. I really love the cotton club bowler in white but I think I'd have to see it in person to determine whether or not I'd be willing to spend that much on something that feels like another cambon series. Not that there's anything wrong with the cambon line, but I don't want to spend that much on my first Chanel and have it go on sale ever. That's probably part of why I like Louis Vuitton so much. Ahh, sorry if this is becoming a total run-on thread but I just don't want to buy a Chanel that'll just become another closet dwelling bag. What I've narrowed it down to is the 2005 reissue (love all of the colors unfortunately), cotton club bowler, or cotton club tote. And any advice is appreciated seeing as I'm a total Chanel newbie. Thanks in advanced, everyone!
