....And I didn't even buy anything! I dropped in at the Chanel boutique on a whim. They had a lot of new styles, but I only tried on the various flap bags including the violet East/West, a black patent classic flap, and a burgundy lambskin flap. And also looked at cute little earrings that have little glittery Chanel icons in resin (there's a gorgeous matching cuff, too) and some boots and shoes. I'm still waiting for my huge runway tote, but if I decide I don't like it, I will probably get the violet East/West bag. It is so darling. I wish it came in lambskin, though...that would be so dreamy. Anyway, it was just fun times. My SA Trisha is great; she never does the hard sell, and she knows I'm hooked on Chanel and I will eventually buy something when I see whatever it is that's so totally me. She just kept thinking of cute, funky things she thought I'd love and we just looked at them. Also she told me that Chanel makes exclusive designs for Bloomingdale's or Saks priced very reasonably to give these department store boutiques an "edge" over standalone stores. So now, I will have to be on a lookout for those!
