This is me right now. Ok here's the story. I totally missed out on the Diamond Shine Flap last year, and has been yearning for it for a while. Kept on dreaming about having one. And i thought that's the end of it as there is no way of having one (since i do not buy from eBay and alike). So, 2 days ago, i went to Chanel boutique and GUESS WHAT?? I SAW ONE DIAMOND SHINE FLAP IN BLACK! . Puuurrrfect...I asked the SA to hold it for me as im still waiting for my funds to be transfered from overseas ( Yes, i finish all my $$ every month on my indulgences) Slap me if you wish. SO today i went to pick my new baby up and i couldnt be happier. As DH and i was waiting for the Jockey to get our car back from Valet, I opened her up and wanted to use her right away (IN THE WAITING AREA). Yes im in love. Then ...as with any new Chanel purchase, i will bring them up and SNIFF the leather, call me sick but i love the smell of leather . Upon bringing her up close to my nose (with DH looking at me thinking ), i smelt her, then DH said "honey, what's that white bit on the stitches"? I said "what white bit". THen Dh took it from me and showed me. OMG OMG OMG...there are GLUES on the stitches where they connect or whatever. So upon closer inspection, i thought " no biggie, get a tweezer and just get those glues off". BUt obviously DH saw my calm and collected emotion, he guessed what i will do to her once i get my tweezer. (cuz i use my tweezer alot for whatever reason) . He warned me to bring her back up and let the EXPERTS do it. So there up i went back to the store. The manager apolozied, blah blah, and she tried to fix it. GUESS WHAT HAPPEND?? THE STITCHES BECAME LOOSE!!! SHE USED A TWEEZER TO get the glues out! WHAT A STUPID *&*&%*%*..ACTUALLy that could have been me. So there....they refund it and i totally lost her...forever she gone, forever my heart ache..my love for u will not die and rip.. on a lighter note, CONGRATULATIONS TO ROCERCHIC for her NEW SHOCKINGLY LOVELY BRIGHTON BLUE CLEMENCE with ROSE interior..HAwttt! So i guess at least reading Rockerchic's stunning new love, i know there are plenty of love to share!
