Hi everyone! This is my first post. I am DESPERATE to find the previous version of the White Patent Luxury Bowler. I am not too fond of the 08 version with the plastic chains, although if someone owns the bag and really likes it, I might give it a shot. I just purchased the new Chanel flat thong sandal in white patent with the large silver CC logo and need a good white patent bag. Any other suggestions in white patent with silver hardware would be highly appreciated.
