Hi everyone,

I need help deciding about whether i keep my Chanel mini rectangular flap or exchange it with the chanel coco handle.

I got the chanel mini and it is my very first chanel ever. I had a budget to go with and couldn’t exceed it.
I love it but to be honest i felt like its a toy purse. I own so many lv l, Gucci and burberry bags but for the price of the mini and how mini it is i just felt that ok i wanna own it because i wanna be a chanel owner but it feels like is it really worth it? It is like very small.
I am 5’3” and petite and it looks cute on me but i am still debating.
I still have couple days to exchange and i am eying the coco handle flap. Ny sa told methat the mini are rare but the coco is versatile and its bigger.

I need help deciding whether to keep the mini or exchange it with the handle.

I will attach pictures of the mini i own on me and the coco handle that my sa sent me comparing to the mini.

I prefer the coco handle. To me the mini looks like it’s trying to be the classic flap but the coco handle is in its own league. I also feel it’s more elegant and you get a bit more surface area for the price (unless they’ve gone up by a lot recently?)

It seems like you’re not loving the mini but are you settling for the coco handle too? I personally would go for the coco handle but make sure it’s the right bag for you.
My problem with the mini and u may think im ridiculous i am just purchasing a name brand that looks like a kid bag for how mini it is. Thats all. I cant get over the question is it really worth it? Am I really carrying a 3500 plus tax bag? While with the handle coco being bigger i can swallow it . I don’t know if your understanding my thoughts. I know we dump alot of money on luxury bags but i never spent that much. This is my very first chanel and its probably what’s making me hesitant. Thank u so much for the reply :smile:
