OK at the ripe old age of 29 (nearly 30), I am getting my first Chanel bag, LOL. My vendeuse lady from Rue Cambon phoned me this afternoon and told me that she feels really sorry for me that I still don't have a Chanel bag so she is giving me one as a Christmas present, LOL. To start my collection off, she is sending me a classic flap. Originally she was going to send me a lambskin one because it is 'tres classique et tu ne peux pas te tromper.' I agree that it's very classic and you cannot go wrong but since she is on the 'tu' terms with me, she told me that she realises that I am very 'sans elegance', LOL and she thought that it would be better to ask me first what leather I want it in. I would greatly appreaciate your valuable inputs, I need to give her a decision by 10am CET (4am Eastern Time) tomorrow! I will primarily be carry this around to work (and in public transport) so it should be logical to go for the Caviar but then the Lambskin is more classic and glossy. As you can see I am a bimbo who cannot make her mind up! P.S. The most important question on which I would like your opinion of is whether a black glossy classic flap looks better than a matte one or vice versa?
