Help me pick my first Chanel :)

  1. Hi guys,

    I'm a LV girl mostly, but I'm in need of a classic black (and classic white, but one at a time!) purse. I'd also like to get it before the big price increase!

    -I'd like a medium-sized shoulder bag
    -As I said, in either black or white
    -Gold hardware
    -I can go to around $1500, maybe a bit more.

    If you have a suggestion, please let me know the name and the price of the bag, and pics if you have any! :yes:

    P.S. Are Chanel bags a bit cheaper in Hawaii, like Louis Vuittons are, compared to the rest of the U.S.?

    Edit: I'd like something pretty classic.
     
  2. I found the following info in the Resources area, but... I'm getting pretty confused at this point. :sad:

    What's the difference between cavier and lambskin?

    What's the difference between the Flap, Classic Flap, and Reissue?

    (Please point me in the direction of any threads that have already answered these questions!)



    The Classic Flap Bag comes in three sizes:

    Small - 9" W x 5.5" H x 2" D $1,495.00 Caviar + $100.00 more for lambskin

    Medium - 10" x 6" x 2.5" $1,595.00 Caviar + $100.00 more for the lambskin

    Jumbo - 12" x 8" x 3" $1,695.00 Caviar + $100.00 more for the lambskin

    The sizes for the Reissue 2.55:

  3. kinkylala85, you can click on the link below (not sure..maybe have to cut and paste) to see what the difference between classic flap and reissue.

    If this is your first bag, I suggest you go with the caviar as it's more durable and withstands those scratches/scuffs from daily use. The lambskin is gorgeous but very delicated. It's easy to get scratch. Just have fun browsing around the link above before making final decision whether to go with classic flap or reissue :smile:
