So here's the background... I don't have a large Chanel collection - I have one pink medium classic flap and I have one grey 2.55 reissue in the 227 size. I also know ultimately I'm gonna get a Chanel in black but I haven't figured out quite yet whether I want the med/large classic flap or the reissue in 226. lol.. that's for a future debate. Also, I have been on and off looking for a red caviar timeless clutch, but I've come to the conclusion that there's none in Canada plus after trying the timeless clutch in a different colour - I'm thinking the clutch may not be for me.. Anyways so here are my musings: Ok so on the one hand - given my current collection and given the fact I was looking for something like a clutch... I'm thinking the caviar east/west would be perfect. I could use it to hold a clutch and it'd be a great evening/go out bag. On the other hand... for $500 more I could get a medium classic flap. Logic would be that I could use it more often since it's larger and I can fit my LV agenda in there. Plus I know this is kind of a silly reason - but it seems the medium/large classic flap size can't be found in the US so perhaps I should get the medium since it's harder to find. (?) I went to the store and tried both on and they say normally that helps you decide.. but I found myself liking both and getting both is not an option. I think it'd be rather silly to have two red classic flap-style bags given my current small amount of Chanels. Thing is that both purses had different "feels" to them. The medium was classically beautiful, but the east west felt a bit sophisticated yet sexy. Kinda like a goody-goody with a little secret. So the question is - given what Chanels I have now and what Chanels I plan for my future... which do you think would be the better buy? SS07 red caviar .... in the east/west flap or the medium/large classic flap? Comments/thoughts please!!! Thanks!
