I'm new - I've always came through and read through the forums but never posted. I'm a HUGE purse girl. I mean, I just love purses and alot of my nights are spent surfing the Internet in hopes of finding that right purse. My dream purse now is a Chanel purse - oh .. how I want one! LOL. I've always been strictly Coach or Dooney and Burke - I have probably quite a bit collection of purses but I'm set on finding a Chanel. I've looked through eBay but I'm so scared of getting a fake. I know you can't buy them online so I'm sort of stuck in where to go and how to find one. I love big purses - I'm a mom of 5 so I carry everything and anything. As far as the Chanel purses go - are alot of them everyday purses? I change purses quite a bit - sometimes daily but am in search of one classic one that I can use for a bit longer than that. I think a Chanel purse is the way to go. Where did any of you get your first Chanel purse? Have any of you shopped eBay and get a good purse? Since I'm looking for a larger purse - any of you have pics or suggestions on which one I should get? I'm a newbie and full of questions!
