I finally got the call from my SA in the UK that my Dark Silver reissue in 226 is here!!! I even manged to talk my DH round after he had a hissy fit that I had bought too many Chanels. I took him along to the Chanel boutique yesterday (in the pouring rain). The SA took out my bag and when I looked at it I just didn't feel the love. You know when you first see a bag you instantly get a rush of excitement as you imagine wearing it, I waited for it to come but it just didn't. Don't get me wrong the bag was lovely but definately an evening bag IMO and I just felt I wouldn't use it enough to justify the £1195 price tag. Am I mad for passing up on this bag, I'm still not sure if I will regret passing this up, especially as it is such a highly coveted bag on this forum!!! What was surprising though was the SA said that despite the extremely long waiting list quite a few customers had passed on this bag when they saw it IRL which is why the bag was in the display case to sell to customers who came into the boutique.
