I bought my first Chanel bag today!!! I bought the Large Black Caviar classic w/silver hardware!! It is gorgeous. I can't stop hugging it! So for those who might have not read my previous post, I had a brand new ivory paddy and did not touch it for 2 months. I returned it today (finally!) and got myself a chanel. I returned the paddy at Bloomingdales, then looked at the chanel dept. The SA was sooooo rude. It wasn't like they were busy, I was the only one in the Chanel dept. I was telling her I love the lambskin but I would be afraid to wear it because of how sensitive the leather is. She said: "Well, then don't buy it" and put the bag back on the display shelf!!! THE NERVE OF HER!!! She said if the leather gets scratched, just wipe it. I wouldn't have bought any of the bags on display because they were all scratched and look "used"... She also told me the caviar is not really a classic becasue Coco Chanel never made it. Anyway, they didn't have the size I wanted, but it would have been 1750 for the large caviar aand 1615 for the Jumbo. WHAT A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE! So, I went over to Chanel Boutique. IT WAS HEAVEN! The SA was sooo nice. I told him I want the Caviar black in medium w/silver and in 2 minutes, a brand new one came out from the back. The whole transaction took 5 minutes. My PHH was with me and he loved the purse too! He encouraged me to get the silver vs. gold. I think my PHH has come a long way.....he was both patient and encouraging! Here are some pictures: The last one is the bag and my 7 month pregnant belly.
