With regard to high-end bags, what preceded your wonderful descent into Chanel-land? Did anyone start with Chanel? I actually came across this forum because of Chanel I was preparing to buy my first ever Chanel, the 2005 medium reissue in grey, and was researching it online. This forum gave me soooo much info, and I bought the reissue! Before that, I bought Louis Vuitton and a bit of Gucci. Now, when I can buy bags, its mainly Chanel (with a bit of Bottega Veneta thrown in) ~~ How about you?
