Happy new year ladies! Not sure if this should be in the Chanel forum - but taking a chance... I went shopping a couple days ago FULLY planning on investing in Chanel sunnies. Loved the look of them for so long but never actually held a pair in my hands. I have always worn cheapies - and they've always been lost or broken by my kids. I was planning to baby these Chanels.... Anyway, I had DH's FULL blessing to spend all kinds of $$ on these sunnies, had my Sunglass Hut gift certificates in hand, I found a pair that suited me, AND: I was so disappointed. Holding them, looking them over - they really didn't feel any different from any of the cheap sunglasses that I have been wearing all my life. I REALLY don't mean to offend anyone by saying this - I am just hoping someone can set me straight - they're just light and plastic like the ones I currently have which cost $12.99. I WANTED to be knocked on my ass with how good the quality would be, but I wasn't. I was so, "meh". What gives? Are the Sunglass Hut Chanel's different from the ones at the boutique? Am I missing something?
