My parents are giving me some bag money for my birthday. I don't have a chanel yet and been wanting to get one...bought a ML black flap in feb but returned it coz hubby had sticker shock! I thought I was doin him a favour by saving over 500 but it still did not go over very well lol. I did not even try the bag on. Returned it soon as I got it! Peace in my marriage is definitely more important than a bag. Anyways with 2500 what should I do for my first legitimate chanel purchase LOL? My options are: Vintage black lambskin M/L flap from reseller Vintage red caviar 1990s small flap for 2200 pristine condition from friend Brand new WOC maybe red Save for Jumbo flap I don't carry much for everyday as I work from home. My bags are used mainly for shopping, dinner out and church. I would like a red bag for pop of color in my wardrobe. I don't really "need" a dressy black bag as I have a marc Jacobs baby Stam in icy black. And I have a black Gucci too. But of course a chanel is a chanel lol. This is probably also going to be my one and only chanel as I try to keep my capsule collection as small and diverse as possible. Part of me wants the brand new WOC now so I can have a boutique purchase experience. Part of me wants to have a bigger bag and save by going the preloved route. Jumbo size is an overkill for me as it will not get used very much because its just too big for what I carry. I probably will use it twice a month. WOC I can use daily as I don't have a big wallet. I do have the Dior new lock pouch which is bigger than the WOC.WOC may be a practical buy but I'm dying to have a classic flap! What a dilemma! Any bits of wisdom you can provide will be much appreciated. thanks!
