Hi Folks! I'm getting ready to make my next purchase and would appreciate some of your thoughts/opinions is helping me decide.

I'm torn between the light gray chevron boy (new medium) that's part of the Fall season, and the classic jumbo caviar beige clair with SHW.

I feel equally torn as to what to get. I realize that this shade of gray might not be around again for a while so one half of me feels that since I love this shade I should get it while it's available. The other half of me feels that since the classics are already so expensive I should get the jumbo so I can lock that down before the next price increase.

My current collection: classic jumbo black caviar shw, black GST shw, black medium lambskin boy (new med.) rhw

The fact that I'm getting a color other than black is something to celebrate!! :P :biggrin:

Chanel Chevron is one of the classic too. I love it and want to get one as well. Since you already have classic flap, give chevron flap a try. It's beautiful.

Hmm I am torn.

1. You seem more fond of the grey color so that makes me feel like you should go for what you are lusting over.

BUT

2. I have a few boy bags and I do use them but find them less versatile than the classic flaps in terms of value for money and day to night versatility. I guess in my mind if there are funds for a classic flap I would always go for that over a boy even though boys are nice to have!! :lol:

Personally I also prefer chevron in classic flap (i think the puffyness is delicious looking whereas its just a bit flat for me on the boy) so maybe I am biast because of that!!

Some grey flap bags (classic style) have been posted recently - did you see them? They were really lovely. I would go for one of those or the boy in the grey if I had the choice.

Go for the beige jumbo. This is a classic that you won't be tired of seeing a few years down the line.

Beige for sure. I have one with GHW and it is simply fabulous. I always receive tons of compliments every single time I use her. Classic, timeless.
