I have been hounding DH for an LV bag for my upcoming birthday. I mean hounding! He thinks bags are not a good use of money, so it took considerable work on my part. Well, I just discovered this forum and learned of the Chanel price increases and was able to get a contact at Saks to get me an e/w caviar at the old prices if I got it before the 12th. I told DH that I might do that, and then, when I decided to definitely do it - effectively buying my own birthday present - he said, "Well, you'll have to return the LV that I got you! I got it early since you have been hounding me with emails from Eluxury!" Whoops! I feel really bad because it is not his nature to buy a bag at all, let alone early! However, I cannot pass up the e/w for $400 less than the new price and the LV will be there and be the same price. I am hoping I don't make him too hurt by going ahead with the Chanel BUT it is going to be my very first Chanel!!! Woohoo!
