    Hi ladies & gents,

    Well.... after searching for this particular bag during the Christmas holidays I finally tracked this baby down and brought her home on saturday! (ok I wasn't contantly searching for her because I did have the camila keeping me occupied)

    On my trip up to Edinburgh my bf and I made a small diversion to the Manchester boutique. My excuse was to break down the 5 hour journey and grab some breakfast.. but little did he know :graucho:!

    When we arrived, I already knew my bag was waiting for me but I needed to somehow get rid of my bf!!

    So not knowing Manchester very well, I managed to ask the SA to direct him to the nearest bank to do his errands and keep him far away from me as possible before he finds out that this was not a random trip, but instead a carefully planned purchase!!

    My eyes were tracking my bf making sure he leaves the building and as soon at the automatic door slides open I turn around to the SA and tell her to give me my goodies as I dont have much time!

    My boyfriend wasn't amused when he realised what I had done... but I did tell him I was actually saving myself money buying it now due to the increase and that I would leave this classic to our children... He still wasn't amused. What a tough cookie, my next arguement was the fact I earned every penny and I deserved it!!.. but he finally cracked a smile when I promised to "not buy a bag for a whole year..." but he doesn't realise it exclude wallets, accessories and other Chanel goodies

    And here she is....







    My GST in light beige with g/h. :girlsigh:
