I went to the Chanel boutique at South Coast Plaza yesterday and I bought the Ultimate soft in black. I had wanted the medium one and they only had it in a dark beige so I bought the large one. I kind of wish I would have gotten the smaller one if they had it but for $1795 it is a whole lot of bag! I think the bag was waiting for me, it was in the back and untouched. Well I got my first chanel! I had a cotton club pochette but I returned it, the zipper bugged me and had the strap been longer it would have been perfect. Anyway I do love my new bag and I am worried about it losing its shape, it is pretty thick leather and I plan on stuffing it when not in use.
