I love the look of the small
This is so helpful - thank you! Sounds like you have a gorgeous variety of them!I own and adore trendy cc bags, it’s the first Chanel bag I purchased. That being said, I don’t think it’s suitable as an everyday bag. It’s very structured, which means corner wear happens easily. The lambskin used is for trendys is more durable, but still scratches, which means you have to be careful of your nails when opening the flap, and be mindful not to bump the bag on anything. It’s an accordion style bag, so it holds more than it looks, but the 2 internal dividers limit the amount/shape or items that can go in, and if you overstuff the bag, there will be structural distortions.
I have 1 in LGHW and one in so black, neither has signs of wear on the hardware. You don’t normally touch the top bar/plate in the course of using the bag, so there shouldn’t be a lot of scratches. I would imagine there would be more scratches on the turn lock than the top plate.
Trendys are exceedingly elegant bags, but more suited for occasional outings rather than daily use.

Brooklyn Blonde’s review of her trendy cc (https://www.brooklynblonde.com/chanel-trendy-cc-bag-review/) makes it sound like she’s used it as a daily mom bag for five years w no trouble and while I don’t really see how that’s possible and that’s why I came here to ask you guys, I have to be honest that I don’t know enough about what influencer’s get from promoting a bag (that I imagine they can’t link to to get commission from?) to know how much I can take their reviews to the bank?
Definitely the small. The small is already pretty big and holds a lot.
It’s fantastic. I love it so much!If you're looking to get a bag for everyday use, I would recommend getting the 19. The lambskin is treated and it's even more durable than other lambs. It's easy to get in and out of. If you don't like the slouchy look, get an organizer. The bag is big so an organizer won't take up too much space. That is one Chanel bag you do not have to baby.
I’m new to purseforum and you guys are awesome - so helpful! This is exactly what I’m struggling w everyone’s feedback - though it’s all making the 19 grow on me - thanks again!I don’t have a Trendy (gorgeous bag!) but wanted to chime in about the 19. I have and love the small black 19. Everything about it is easy. It doesn’t look dumpy because it isn’t large enough to sag too much, imo. Samorga insert helps. (I don’t care for the appearance of the larger sizes.)
These are two totally different bags. You will not be happy if the Trendy is what you truly want but you buy the 19 instead. Try them both on in store if possible.
