This is my new jumbo bag (well, I actually got it for Christmas and haven't been around to post). It's my first-ever BLACK Chanel bag. I love it, except it's kinda weird because it's neither the traditional lambskin nor caviar ... it's leather. And I'm not sure about the style of the lock. It's a little bit harder to fasten than the traditional CC lock. I have three brown Chanels -- a regular jumbo flap with silver hardware, a vintage brown tote and a brown medium flap with gold hardware. I don't know why I never ventured into black, which is in my opinion, classier. Just thought I'd share this odd landmark occasion with those who understand my bag fetish! What do you think? ? ?
