Hi all! For my 30th birthday, my husband is being generous enough to buy me a Chanel bag! So we were at the Chanel store on the weekend and - it's so tough to choose just one bag. I'm also not used to big splurges (I only own a Givenchy Antigona and small seasonal LV crossbody in premier designers) so I think 20 times about the decision I'm making. I really loved the Mademoiselle Vintage flap bag in white when I first saw it. The gold on white is just so pretty. But I also got to hold the (I believe it was...) small classic flap in lambskin - such luxurious leather! However, at $6,000+, I just couldn't bring myself to purchase the classic. And I did love the Mademoiselle Vintage too so I figured I'll go with that. I ended up buying it in navy though because I chickened out about white and that I may have to be extra careful with white. Anyway so, I had asked them for the mini classic flap but they didn't have that. Now, my question is - should I actually wait for the mini classic flap or keep the MV flap? In terms of usage - I think both will be similar as they're both cross body/dressy etc. I'm not sure if mini is a bit smaller than the Small MV flap? I love the MV. But I'm not sure if a first time Chanel buyer should always go for classic over seasonal? What do you guys think about the MV flap bag? I do love that even though it's seasonal, it's not trendy in that hopefully it won't look dated in the next 10 years because it's very similar to Classic flap and the Diana flap. The CC logo is different though - which, again, I like - but at the same time I'm not sure that it'll look dated or not good later on as that's not the "normal" CC logo? Sorry for the long post. It's my first Chanel and I'm a bit confused because of the $$$ so I just posted my entire train of thought here.
