I am in love with Chanel, however every time I see one or think about it, I get sad :0 !! I own alot of Chanel, from cosmetics to shoes and bags and everything in between and I have been satisfied with mostly everything but even if i wasnt I overlooked it until now. I guess I was in denial of what Chanel has become until I paid a visit to my store on monday and had a long talk with my SA who is wonderful. 5300 for a caviar jumbo is crazy , and I just avoided thinking about it until it was staring me in the face. Ive always though Chanel was a little overpriced in the past few years but its out of hand now. The caviar now looks and feels like plastic. 3000 for GST, that also feels like plastic. I just dont understand and it upsets me, bad. Its not about the money really, dropping 5300 dollars on handbags is something I know alot of us have done, however I can get 3 lv's for 5300! And the quality going down just makes it worse. Im sorry, I just cant justify Chanel bags anymore!! It breaks my heart though!!! Does anyone else feel as strongly as I do?
