Hi Everyone! I am fundamentally a Coach girl with all my handbags and accessories, and my experience with Chanel has been limited to drooling over pictures and buying makeup, fragrance, and eyeglass frames. Here is the deal. Next fall I will be deploying to Iraq, and will also be re-enlisting with a big bonus attached. My husband and I are keeping a large portion of our bonuses and pay for ourselves, and we plan on taking our RnR in Germany. From there, we will go to Paris as I have told him that I would like to visit the HoC and of course pick up something vintage if I can! I have a few goals with my future large cash flow (which will feel good as I will work very very hard for it!) I would like, at the very least: 1. a handbag (preferably something classic and small like the flap with chain link strap) 2. ballet flats 3. cap toe shoes 4. a suit What I am asking from all of you enthusiasts is this: do you have any suggestions for me on what I should look for? The experience will be fun but if I already have an idea of what I want it will make it less overwhelming. What I am looking for is not necessarily specific products, but ones that can give me an example of what I want, considering I will not be over there until 2009. Thank you!!!
