My goal of the day when I was at Saks 12 hrs ago.

- Search for the best soultion to their 2 bags totaling over $1000 rule.

Popping into Chanel seemed silly, as I knew they can't have anything besides wallets that would work with my plan. And NYC Saks never ever gets nice wallets! But I still stepped in, perhaps because it became a habit of mine to check out Chanel whenever I'm there.

And hello~! There was a cutie waiting for me in one of their glass cases! It was a small makeup case, which is something I definitely didn't need. I don't wear makeup everyday. And even on the days I do, I don't wear enough to actually require a cosmetic case.

Ah... This lil baby wasn't just a boring cosmetic case though. It had something extra that caught my eyes. I knew if someone like my mother ever find out it costs $450 plus tax, I'd be getting another long lecture about how I should grow up, blah, blah. But I felt :love: at first sight and even that price sounded perfect. Lol~ I had a certain Fendi bag in my mind which retails for $580. How nicely I'd go over only $30 from that $1000 minimum? I thought about it and could not say no to the lil Chanel baby.

* I'll post the pics at the end, sort of saving the best for last. Hey, at least it isn't a long drag of reveal~:rolleyes:

Things went really smoothly at Fendi too. They had the exact color I wanted, which they sold out the last time.



^ It's the smallest size of their anniversary baguette. It's very similar to WoCs of Chanels.



^ But the card slots are placed on the flap, as you can see and the chain for this baby came totally come off.



^ I so adore its lining too! They are like little fun doodles~

this is the exact one that I love too and that I would get for the GC deal, but I couldn't find the second thing I want that is around 500, and i don't want another wallet. So I didn't buy it

But oh no! When I got to the GC handler, she turned me down. I was so shocked to hear Fendi was excluded from the promo. Yikes! Nobody told me that. And it doesn't say anywhere in their fine print thing either. I really had no idea and thought it was LV and Dior excluded.

So I still needed to search for the second bag... And it has to be somewhere around $600 now I got the cosmetic case from Chanel. And guess what? It was rather much more difficult than I thought it would be. Nothing I liked fit around that price. They were all either way more or be short around $100. And I'm stuck with an extra bag I didn't have to buy right now!

Ah... My love for my Fendi was turning into something else... Until a Prada SA suggested me to return it after hearing my story.

"But I like it! I really want it!"

Okay. I guess I'm not returning it. Nor hating it.:sweatdrop:

Anyhoo, so I carefully looked around every possible bags at Prada and finally chose a medium sized tote. I'm embarassed to admit the most attractive part was the price tag, as it was $595, such a nice solution to my dilemma. But it's light, it's easy to maintain, it's Prada and before I became a girl who wears too much pink, my fave color was blue. Plus, I figured since it's beginning to feel like summer already, a touch of cool blue would be extra nice.

Now finally on to my newest Chanel addition... Drumrolls~

I must warn you though, it is a bit tacky in a way. Lol~ Don't hate me for loving this so much. I should note Las Vegas is in my top 5 fave city list.;)



^ Can you see what's hanging on the side?:graucho:

Besides that, I had the misfortune of discovering Fendi is excluded from current GC promo. :crybaby:

But I really do like my new Fendi. I'm currently thinking of going back to Saks and return and rebuy it with the GC earned yesterday. Lol~

Ahhh! That's so cute! I was previously eying on the ultra mini flap with the mirror and lipstick charms! Acks, how much did you get the cosmetic bag for? I wonder if they have the ultra mini flap I wanted!

I looooove that Fendi "wallet on chain" hehe. I would totally use that just as a wallet! Too bad I'm trying to save money for my trip, otherwise I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Love that Chanel case too! I think the lipstick charm is adorable!
