I'm curious, do your friends carry Chanel bags, or designer bags in general? My friends carry a variety, but no Chanel until now! One of my best friends loved my GST so much she went out and bought her own.
My obsession has actually done some good to the world! I've influenced one of my friends to get a chanel. She bought her Bronze Cotton Club tote after I raved about it. My SA was so grateful that I practically made the sale for her, she was kind enough to give me a free Coco Mademoiselle EDT! (I guess that's my first "VIP" gift, even though I don't spend $$$$$ at her boutique.)
Most of my friends have variety of bags ( a lot of IT bags) and very very few have chanels. I recently sold a lot of my bags (5 of them actually) to fund my future chanel purchases (I am thinking luxe bowler of reissue in metallic black)--getting into the obsession now=)
I kind of like being the 'odd one out', it kind of feel special=)
