Hi ladies! I have a Caviar GST in black with shw, and a vintage caviar bag in black with ghw.

I'm so torn as to should I go for a Chanel vintage flap in black lambskin ghw, or vintage flap in tan caramel brown, ghw?? My worry is that lambskin is prone to scratches shld I get it in brown, but I already have 2 Chanel bags in black- shld I really get a 3rd Chanel in black ?

My vintage caviar bag


Which choice shld I go for to add to my
Chanel collection? I m horrible at babying my bags btw..

Choice A


Or this:
Choice B


Or choice C:
Hold out and wait for a caviar vintage flap in beige?

Personally, I'd sell your vintage caviar bag (1st pic) & get choices A & B. No worries about maintenance for vintage lambskin ---it's practically indestructible.

But if you were to keep your vintage caviar bag, then I'd go with choice A. It's a classic style that Chanel has re-introduced (the "coco rider") & it won't look outdated.

Exactly! Hehe... I love the color coz it's looks so soft & buttery haha...

My Chanel r all black so my next one will be in lighter shade to go with my lighter shades clothings lol.. So no worries abt color transfer? And I tot the scratches wouldn't be tat obvious on lighter shade as compared to black?

Of coz if possible then get both! :biggrin:

The black is classic but I'm a sucker for caramel bags....so classy and a great neutral. Good luck deciding
