Hi Ladies! I just came back from Bergdorf's and saw the samples of both of these bags and I must say they are GORGEOUS, AMAZING and TDF!!! The only downside (for me anyway) is that both of them were very big, a bit too big for my taste. But the again the Chanel SAs at BG were so rude and unhelpful that they couldn't tell me which size the bags were (small or large). The only thing they did tell me is that the samples they had on display were the only size and color they ordered (white in the modern chain and black patent in the diamond shine). I think the diamond shine at BG was the larger version of the one pictured in the thread "More Eye Candy" because it had kind of a back compartment that closed like a change purse that I didn't like very much. I don't think the one on the forum was like that. Anyway, I just thought I'd let you ladies know that they are beauties. Swanky, I think you will love the modern chain because you seem to like big tote bags and this one is hot!! I'm just hoping that the one I saw was the large version and not the smaller because I really LOVE this bag!
