Hi, i'm quite new to the chanel forum i've been reading up on a few threads in here and i am quite convinced..... i MUST buy my first chanel!! i've been debating about quite a few.. and i love love love the classic flap.. jumbo or medium sized, but then i figured it would look too old for me?? (i'm quite young and still a student) i also love the grand shopping tote but i'm pretty petite and i think it might overwhelm my frame so i had my eye on the petite shopper... i really reallyyy like it!! now im just deciding between the colors.. black or beige?? and do both colors come in both, silver and gold, hardware? and if yes.. which color/hardware combination should i choose? if i get black i'll be afraid that i won't be able to use it in the summer.. but if i get beige i'm afraid it'll get dirty and i might want to wear a darker handbag for the winter! LOL and where can i find this bag?! (im in the NYC area) and if anyone knows how much this bag costs (i think i read somewhere its around $1095?) i'd love to know.. thank you in advance! sorry if the questions are a little dumb, i'm a chanel newbie..and i just LOVE this bag!!!
