Oh no, this is perfect - Thank you for your response! I've been going back and forth on a beige coco and like you, I find the beige claire too yellow-toned.

I mainly have black bags, but would like to add a beige Chanel to my collection. I know I probably won't get as much use out of it since it's lighter colored and I'm worried about color transfer.

I totally agree: the coco handle is just so feminine with dresses! Now my question is... do I really need another mini coco, but in beige? :smile:
I'm trying to decide if I need another coco handle...this time in dark grey and mini. I already have a small beige one.

So excited I was able to find this beauty. It is such a beautiful print. I think it can go from lady-like to edgy depending on the outfit styling. :heart::smile:
I really love the tweed too - my concern was how would I clean it if I ever got it dirty and if the tweed might get snagged. What are your thoughts?

It needs to be taken after with care. I would spot clean with a damp paper towel if it every got dirty. I also wouldn't use it daily due to the ecru colored tweed. I have a tweed mini I use daily and haven't had any issues with snagging, although there are some fraying threads near the CC buckle.

The nature of tweed allows it to fray a bit, but that doesn't bother me. I buy my bags to use them and if they end up not looking pristine years down the road, then at least I got my money's worth. I also find properly storing them helps a lot with keeping them looking new for a long time.

I think if one will be heartbroken by fraying or the possibility of getting dirty then a white tweed is not the best fit. Hope this helps!

If you'd get use out of it, then yes! Definitely yes! And with the crazy price increases of Chanel, you wouldn't want to regret not buying when u see the Coco handle 3 years down marked +2000$
