My first Chanel...and I'm hooked!

  1. I went to the Chanel store in Amsterdam yesterday totally set on buying a jumbo classic flap bag with silver hardware.

    When i tried it on,I knew it was just wrong.

    The gold looked better on me,and I may get that in a year or so's time...they'll fortunately always make them....but I found the gold just a bit too bright,yellow,shiny and blingey for me.

    The reissue,on the other hand,had caught me eye immediately. They still had a grey in size 266 and two blacks.

    I tried the black one and was hooked immediately. I wear a whole lot of black,olive green,grey...and then strangely enough,dusty pinks and blues. But i preferred the black to the grey,for me.It'll go with most of my wardrobe and the quaint,worn,vintagey look ,the pallor of the gold and the relatively low bling factor (not to mention the absence of logos) did it for me!!

    So here are some bad pics,unfortunately. light gone,used flash.bag actually contained purse,lipstick,brush,artificial sweeteners,inhaler and tiny compact when pic taken!

    I love this bag and it has not left my side since I got it!!!
