Hello my fellow Chanel lovers, owners, and enthusiasts...

I recently went over-the-top crazy shopping for Chanel. I've posted a group pic in the April 2011 purchases thread, but would like to post some individual pics of my recent buys, though none of them are anything you haven't seen. :smile:

OK so here goes:

My first buy for the month of April was an ebay purchase from a wonderful and trustworthy seller, pradamommy70. I had posted (many) iphone pics of her in a reveal thread, but since she jumpstarted my April buying craze, I'll include her here again. She's 09A metallic grey lamb jumbo:

My second buy is my 38mm J12 - white dial with diamond markers. I got her just before the price increase. She's quite heavy but nothing I can't get used to.

Inside her BG box:

Unwrapping her:

Still inside the box with plastic cover:

Here, she's already been sized and used (many times!):

Next up is Ms. 11p copper caviar in jumbo. I first spotted the copper in M/L in early March and I instantly was drawn to it. It took a lot to walk out of the store without it. But I was rewarded for my patience, because I was able to get my hands on a jumbo. Yay!

She looks a bit washed out here:

Then, my NM SA, Danielle, inspired me to get the next bag. I think I told her that I was looking for a summer tote (my first choice was a white St. Louis PM), so she sent me a pic of the White GST with gold hardware and that was the end of that search. She's my one and only GST.

She looks like the dirty white version in this pic, but she's really the super white one.

Danielle was also able to find me the 11p Green Caviar Jumbo. I had seen the M/L and Maxi in real life, and then seeing the pics posted here on a couple of reveal threads, just made me want the green more and more. I know some people don't like this color, but I really do love it!

Right around the same time I got the green, I also got the 11p lilas/lilac (metallic) mini. I originally got the lilac in jumbo but the color was a bit too much for me (my age/style) so I settled for a happy medium... or in this case a happy mini. LOL

Then finally, I got the 11p bronze lamb jumbo. Also another bag I spotted earlier and just had to have in jumbo size.

Then my family and I took off for a short vacation in Vegas. Although I didn't think I would buy any Chanels there, who could resist an 11p silver Sevruga WOC?

A few days after we got home, I visited SCP (on my birthday!) to pick up the 11p red caviar in jumbo from Sirosh.

And sometime in April, as I was paying my NM CC to make room for the NM points event, I spotted this wallet. I love love the print! Although I'm not a big fan of patent, I love it in this style. Today, I spotted this same exact print/style on a WOC. Almost made me wish I waited for the WOC if I had known it was coming. But, I think the wallet is better for me because I would be able to use it more often than if it had been WOC. That's what I'm telling myself anyway. LOL

For my May buys, I got these three from Jay, a super nice and patient SA at my local Nordies:

I've visited this bag so many times in the past weeks/months... but I might return it tomorrow. I like this bag, A LOT.. but I am not (yet) in love with it. I think the fear of price increase spurred this purchase. I shouldn't let that dictate my buys... right?

In the business tote in dark beige
I love this color (I saw it on another reveal thread)!!! But I'm having a hard time tracking down a jumbo (my original plan). Then I saw this tote and it's huge but it looked ok on me, though I'm (very) short. I was drawn to it because of the color and it's potential functionality. It could fit my 16.4 laptop and still have so much room left for files and other workstuff. I was told that this baby could take the weight.

That's it for now. I tried to include pics of the tags (when I remember) for reference. If anyone wants additional pics or info, just let me know. :smile:

Thanks again!
