I am a CHANEL girl, always have been and do not ever see that changing. I flirted with other brands and regretted it. I bought a LV Neverfull bag a few years ago, loved it but sold it within six months as I began to notice the bag everywhere I went. Bought a brand new Hermes Kelly, utterly gorgeous, but it was just not me. It took over a year to sell which made me realise the resell market is awash with these bags. I consigned the bag in London for a year and it did not move, explored the idea of selling it at an auction in Paris/New York but looked at the sold prices of past handbag auctions and would have lost 50% of the original price. I eventually took it to Fashionphile's pop up in New York (I live in London and NYC) and they bought it outright giving me pretty much what I paid for it. I danced out of there, I was so happy. CHANEL and I feel right for each other. I do not love each collection and like others on here, sometimes question the price strategy of some items but it won't stop me buying the brand. To me, CHANEL complements my style rather than dominating it which I love.
