Thanks to the this Chanel thread of tPF, I have become hooked on Chanel. Due to the pending price increase, I arranged things so that I was fortunate to get 3 bags in the past couple of months. I have a black GST w s/h, an off white Jumbo flap with s/h and a red timeless clutch. I have continued to dream of having a black flap with g/h for dressy occasions when a clutch would not work. On the other hand, I have been sort of on a bag ban given my new acquisitions. None of the cruise bags have really appealed to me. I like the idea of a reissue in purple or red such is rumoured to be in the S/S 08 collections, but I would want leather (not fabric), and it would have to the right shade. If I did not like any of the S/S 08, I would focus on a medium flap at that time, but it would gall me to have to pay $200-$300 more. The only consolation is I would probably try to get it at a Saks ECG event. I am thinking of seeing if there is an east-west flap that I can get by next Wednesday. I would really like a classic medium flap, but the east-west is "only" $1395 right now vs $1995 for the medium flap. I am leery of waiting and trying to find something on eBay as there are so many fakes out there. So, should I go for the flap now or continue to save with the goal of getting a reissue in the spring or the black medium flap?
