My initial choice was the Caviar Classic Flap in black, but then I figured that my mom already has quite a collection of the Flap bags, and I'd be getting them eventually. So I looked around a little more, and realized that I'd first seen this when it first came out, but had been on the fence about buying it because at that time I was still thinking about the Flap. And of course, with my luck and timing, by the time I wanted this it was gone. After months of searching, I finally managed to find one. I love the leather and the hardware. This will be one of my main work bags, because it's so classy and elegant, and it's the perfect size for me. A huge thanks goes to bb10lue, because without her I wouldn't have been able to find my very first Chanel bag: the Luxe Ligne Metallic Bowler.
