    UPS just dropped by -- after months of being on the waiting list for Fall 12A (i am not a patient person), the bag is here

    first of all -- VERY impressed with the way the package was prepared by the sales person -- I have never received anything so beautifully packaged from a sales person before -- the wrapping paper has little chanel logos all over it


    with a gorgeous card saying "thank you"


    here she is: Mademoiselle Rouge


    She definitely is mini!!

    On the shoulder-- the length is perfect like this (excuse my daughter - and her mess- -- she is watching max and ruby on the tv while her momma is posing in front of the mirror :p Oh, and excuse my outfit as well -- i ran out in rain for 1 minute to save my flower beds from pouring out into the yard -- huge rainstorm this afternoon, and came back soaked -- threw on some random clothes)



    when worn cross body...


    i think it looks silly because it is so short -- and i bought it primarily to be worn cross body so i can have my hands free...

    how now, brown cow?

    I am undecided

    ps: as a reference for others --- i am 5'4", so not tall at all --- but, in terms of proportions, I do have a long torso (and short, stubby stumps for legs...sigh)

    note -- oh, as for quality -- hmmm..i don't feels a bit...different from my other bags...the leather feels a bit dry and papery? and soft.
  2. Doesn't look silly to me. I like it you look petite enough to wear it messenger style/cross body in my opinion.
  3. Oh I LOVE it!!!!!! Looks awesome!!! Congrats!!!!!
  4. You look great! The straps are short but I think you can still get away with it!
  5. hahaha-- i just posted in your reveal thread! are your straps any longer?
  6. that is so cute!!! the size looks really good on you. congratulation :smile:
  7. I don't think it looks too short on you! I really like the mini and the color of this one. Very nice wrapping as you said. I am 5'5 and the mini looks ridiculously short when worn cross body on me (not sure of it's height, weight, big chest or all 3). But I like it on you! Congrats!!
  8. Gorgeous..congrats.
  9. I think it looks real nice on you..not ridiculously short at all. I've seen taller ladies wear it cross body and it looks all wrong.
  10. Very nice on you. Such a cute little red devil :smile:
  11. Congratulations!!! very nice.
  12. Very cute!
  13. Wow, congrats!! It looks totally great when you wore it cross body, perfect :tup:
  14. I actually think the length is nice crossbody, looks great on yoU!
  15. It looks nice on you. I don't think the length of chain is too short when you wear crossbody. Congrats and enjoy your new mini.
