ODE to the JUMBO and GIANT reissues! Come share pics and stories!!!!

  1. Yay!!! :yahoo: This bag is the reason I love Chanel! Here are the reason's why!
    1. It's super functional! Can be worn messenger style which totally works because I have a six year old and a DH who demand both arms at any given time
    2. The size alone gives room for all my junk AND a water bottle!
    3. This is a signature classic- I have not seen another purse look so much like- a PURSE!
    4. Caviar is so indestructable!
    5. The chain is so pretty and very "Chanel"!
    6. It's lightweight
    7. It so structured and can sit on it's own! So easy to get in and out of- plus it's the perfect size width vs. height wise!
    As for Reissues! I'm talkin bout the 228 size! Nothing has me hotter than this bag and when it's in metallic black I feel sooooo special and unique!!! The double flap just brings a smile to me everyday!

    Post your Jumbos and larger sized reissues!! Let's start the Jumbo/Giant Reissue club! Tell me about your story- this is the bag and so addicting!

    My Jumbo (with a beige twin on it's way and a 228MB!) --- LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
