black caviar leather flap (either m/l or jumbo) with your choice of gold or silver hardware - it's the ultimate classic and great for a first chanel!

You should definitely go to the Chanel boutique to try on the different styles. The fun part is the shopping experience. I think you can't go wrong with the classic flap or 2.55 reissue. The size, color, leather, or hardware really depends on your intended use for the bag, lifestyle, & proportions. I think the most popular is the black caviar jumbo flap ---there are waitlists for this. Check out the reference library for pictures so you have a better idea before you visit a boutique.

Classic black flap.
Decide what you want to carry in the bag and that will help you determine the best size.
Which hardware speaks to you and would coordinate best with your wardrobe?

How exciting! Researching on a Chanel bag to buy is an amazing experience, it makes my heart beat faster! I wld recommend a Chanel flap. Then you decide on the colour, the material, the size and the style (classic or reissue - which is also a classic style, i.e. not an IT bag). Take a look at Post pictures of your Flaps & Classic Flaps including WoC's at http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-reference-library/!
