Finally, I caved in after months of ogling at the forum. I bought the med/large black caviar classic flap with gold chain. Thought I'd buy it before another price increase makes it even more expensive. It arrived today!!! There really is that WOW factor! The leather smells so good and it just made me feel more feminine when I tried it on. I used it right away since I had a party tonight and everyone just had to come up and look at it. I want to sell all my other bags that I won't use anymore now that I'm in love with Chanel. To top it off, I want to buy the jumbo too. My credit card's not gonna be happy. Here are some pictures. I just love this bag!
