Well, after a week of my new Dark Brown Vintage Ligne Tote sitting in it's box unopened, I started to get that uneasy feeling that maybe this bag was not for me. I can't put my finger on it, but something about this bag just did not work for me. I took it out of the box a couple of times and tried her on, and then packed her back up each time. So, I wandered into Chanel to see if they had anything new, and they had just received the Grand Shopping Tote in Dark Brown with silver hardware. They only had one in the back in a box, but it was on hold for someone else. So, my really sweet SA called the lady who said that I could have the bag! I bought it then and there and went back 2 days later to return the VL tote. The GST has been out of the box since day one and the tags came off soon after. It think it looks great with everything, and love the classic look of it. I LOVE it and now I want one in every color!!!
