Over 8 Months in the Making: A True Classic Reveal

  1. I am thrilled to share with you my new love, the 226 black reissue with ghw. :cloud9:

    My journey back to Chanel started last year, when I bought my black classic jumbo (I had two other Chanel bags back then, but I hadn't purchased a Chanel bag in 9 years!). I had been rigorously researching about it, discovered TPF, and was well on my way to learning more and purchasing a few more bags. I must admit that I didn't love the reissue at first, but after seeing so many gorgeous reveals and hearing about many TPF members' love for the reissue, I too fell in love. I thought it was a passing phase, but my love for the reissue only grew stronger over the months.

    Although I really struggled between this and the Lady Dior (some of you may remember that previous thread), I am so glad I decided on the reissue. My SA at 57th Street even showed me three different ones, and this one was destined to be mine. :graucho: It had the perfect amount of distressing, right shape, and shiny hardware.

    Without further ado, my gorgeous new baby:
