    Hi everyone!


    I'm new here (but have been quietly reading the threads for quite some time ;)) and hope you can help me.
    I have finally decided to buy a chanel 2.55, but somehow I'm a little confused about the sizes. Have just been to the store yesterday but was kind of too embarassed to ask. I want it in black lambskin, but somehow the flap looked a lot different than on the pics.

    For example:

    The one that I saw yesterday looked more like this one (and didn't like it) :

    What size Sarah Michelle Gellar has? and what sizes are available?
    I really like the size that is shown on the first and second pic. but the one that I saw yesterday seemed smaller and the flap was definitely shorter (hope you know what I mean...:shame:smile:
    Thanks a lot for your help!


    Edit: sorry, somehow the pics won't show, so I inserted them as links...

    The last link you posted is of a fake. Probably why you didn't like it :shame:. The one from the media blog is a caviar jumbo and the one Sarah Michelle Gellar has is a M/L lambskin, I believe.
     
  3. Thanks a lot for your response, bdrmflr!

    I looked at the guide before, but unfortunately there were no pics of the different sizes :hrmm: Because now I'm actually not quite sure anymore if I looked at the small one or the medium one. Because the flap seemed shorter at the store. Does anyone have a pic of the small one? Couldn't find anything over google and it kind of looked like the fake one. Sorry, couldn't find a better picture...hope you guys know what I mean :sweatdrop:
