Hi Ladies, I know this is very last minute. I am flying to Hong Kong the day after tomorrow and am wondering if I should get myself a Chanel. (I am going to Boston this Dec, or should I get it in US?) I know many of you have the classic flap and yes, it is a beautiful piece but also, a lot of people have that. I was considering the black medium/large caviar. Should I get a Chanel? If yes, which one? 1. Black medium/large caviar with silver hardware? 2. Black medium/large caviar with gold hardware? 3. Beige (the brownish pink colour) medium/large caviar with silver hardware? 4. Beige (the brownish pink colour) medium/large caviar with gold hardware? or 5. any other recommendations? One that is suitable for both days and nights. For this price, I wish to get a nice piece (i know all Chanels are pretty) and a lasting one. Understand 4 and 5 above are susceptible to colour transfer Is it true? But black is more common. Should I buy any Chanel and if yes, which piece? (I do not own any Chanel currently tho'). But you gals have inspired me so! Please give me your comments? Many thanks, babes!
