My first Chanel - Black Metallic 226

  1. Hi All,
    I finally got my first Chanel bag today!!!:yahoo:

    I wanted a Chanel flap since end of 2006. Its been a long wait.

    I was planning to purchase either the GST or the reissue on my birthday in mid September. But I still think the GST is abit too boxy for me, and since I always wanted a flap bag I thought I'd get a the the reissue as my first Chanel. I was afraid they'd be out of stock by September. They don't carry alot of stocks in Australia. So I popped in today during my lunch break just to have a look.

    I was hoping they'd have the black metallic in size 226, the last time I went, they only had 227.
    Luckily they had a few 226 in stock and I was able to get a new one from the back.

    The SA was really lovely, and packed the bag nicely.

    I promised my bf I won't use the bag till my birthday. So its going back to the box for now. But I already stuffed it with my essentials, for the "whats in your chanel bag" thread. :graucho:

    Sorry for the long post...too excited!

    Thanks for looking :p
