I'm looking for a black Chanel for my next purchase! I had a fun time today playing with the different bags at NM, but I'm having a hard time choosing between a Medallion tote or a medium flap in caviar with gold hardware. The Chanel bags I have right now are the pink pst (gold h/w) and pink/black cambon pochette. Here are the pros/cons of each bag: Medallion Pros: It's a great everyday bag, and it will get a lot of use It's pretty and classic Con: I have a ton of totes already Flap Pros: It's a gorgeous, timeless piece that will probably last decades It's an iconic Chanel piece Con: It will get very little use. I work as a visiting nurse, and in my free time I run around with my kids. I don't know if it's practical for me to spend so much on something I won't be using often.
