i'm thinking of buying myself a chanel bag and as i'm extremely anal about scratching/dirtying my leather bags i was thinking something in the caviar collection would probably suit me better

so i was wondering if any of you ladies have chanel caviar leather bags, and if so, how do you find they hold up as compared to other leathers? is it pretty indestructable or do i still have to be pretty careful?

i have my eye on this pretty little caviar number

It's pretty indestructable. I would say on the same maintenance level or just a tinge more maintenance level as LV canva/damier/epi perhaps? For LV canvas and damier, when I get something on it, I just scratch it off (kind of violently and desperately) w/my fingernail, then proceed to wipe it w/wet tissue and all is well.

The caviar leather is def more durable and less fragile then the lamb skin one. It's really pretty!:love:

i remember the last time i was at the 5th ave chanel boutique the saleslady actually took down one of the caviar bags and scratched it to show me how durable it was but i guess i'm just skeptical..........but hearing others attest to its durability has almost convinced me to go to for it.....

i think it said that it retails for $1200ish.......

if u read my other thread u'd know i broke up with my boyfriend recently and so that's the only thing that's preventing me from buying this bag right now.......i have the money in cash but no paypal account (i've always used his ebay) so i'm trying to figure something out....*sigh......want the bag but can't reconcile with him just cuz i want a bag :weird:
