The one that almost got away...

  1. I passed on this beautiful bag last year when it was released. By the time I finally decided I had to have it I couldn't find one. I was told it was sold out everywhere. I was thrilled to find out that Chanel was re-releasing the lady braid for Fall so I put my name down on the waitlist for the dark grey, which is gorgeous, but I still pined for the violet from 2006.:crybaby:

    Well my favorite SA (Brendan) at Chanel on E. 57th Street was able to locate the last one for me last week. I'm am so beyond thrilled!:yahoo: This is a refreshing splash of color for my collection and just in time for Fall.
