Thank You For Initiating Me!!!

  1. So I've been a bag girl forever but started seriously getting into it maybe 9 years ago (moving to NYC turned my bag-like into bag-lust). I started out with LVs and have drastically trimmed down my LV collection (though I will always find something I like at a Louis Vuitton boutique) to make way for new things. I've since found a special place in my heart for Balenciagas and that collection is slowly growing. Today, however, marks my official foray into Chanel and THANKS, everyone for helping me!!!

    I've always found Chanel bags beautiful but have had a hard time finding "the one." Up until I saw the Coco Cabas in real life! Unfortunately for me, it wasn't on a store shelf but on someone's arm, and I discovered too late that it is quite hard to find! So with a major case of bag lust I began trolling eBay and found not 1 but 2! I posted both links here and was so happy to find they were authentic. I made an offer for one and it got accepted immediately. :yahoo:

    Today it finally arrived in the mail and it is such a beauty!!! I got the baby cabas in black and it's just the right size for me. Except for some creases incurred during shipping, the bag is perfect. I had a horrible weekend (was quite sick and ended up in the hospital) and this really made my day!!!

    Thanks everyone!!! I will post pics as soon as I can (I am nearing my due date and some days am just too lazy to bring out my camera). Go, TPF!!!:woohoo:
