I was just wondering how old you were when you PURCHASED your first chanel bag? and i mean purchase with your own money...not spending your parents money, or someone gave you a bag, etc.

I'm only 22 years old, and while i could buy a chanel bag if i wanted to, i just can't justify spending so much money on a bag at this point in my life considering i am still a student. when did you finally decide it was the right time to get your first chanel?

I just purchase my first chanel 2 weeks ago. I'm 26 yrs. I collect mostly LV but find myself lusting over Chanel more. I'm married with no kids yet. We (hubby and I) both work. So it's technically our money.

I don't exactly fulfill the qualifications. :P But the day I find myself a mint heart chain medium Chanel flap will be the day I pay for my own Chanel bag (although it wouldn't hurt to ask the parentals :graucho:). Until then, I've put myself on a Chanel ban.

I have always paid my own way (minus a LV hand-me-down from my Grandmother) & I got my first Chanel when I was 22 I think. I have had 5 all together, but currently am down to 2. LV is a different story, I have 25+ pieces!

What I had:
Cerf in tan (returned)
Double sided quilted shoulder bag in black w/ GH (sold for more than I bought it for!)
Chanel classic flap from the eighties, not quilted but w/ the six lines & the really BIG CC in Gold

Still have:
Cerf in black
Classic flap in Black
And lots of chanel shoes!

lola, is that you in your avatar because i think you look like a 20 year old there!

~I was 24 when I bought my 1st, and then a week later I bought my 2nd. I'm taking a break.
