I have walked several times into Chanel and Louis Vuitton with the intention of buying a bag. I liked LV Vernis, but the monogram turned me off. In general I don't like monogram bags. I also don't like the new LV designs with the big LV across the front. So I decided to get a Chanel. Chanel doesn't make its bags cross body. Very rare. I don't like any of the cross body ones they have. All the bags that I have bought that are not cross body don't get used because I have twin toddlers, and I need my hands free at all times!!! I also don't like changing purses much because I usually forget something. I have a big wallet because I carry many cards - healthcare, museum and zoo memberships, etc., and I have not just one but three for my kids too! Is there a good Chanel cross body that I could use regularly? I like the Classic, have also looked into the Boy Bag, but their straps are not long enough. I really like Chanel bags and saw a woman carry the Shopping Bag which looked very good, but I can't find a long enough strap. Any recommendations?
