Last week Ibought my first Chanel bag, a large cambon tote, and carried it for a few days before I noticed the stitching was coming loose in one spot. It was fairly minor - but for a $1500 bag, I don't think something like that is acceptable. So I went back to NM only to find that they did not have the large cambon and could only locate one with black patent Cs, which I didn't want. This story has a happy ending, though, since they DID have this beauty that was not there before. I'm not sure of the name but it is from the Vintage Ligne and I am sooooo happy with it! It is the perfect bag for me and I love it even more than I loved the cambon. Another plus is that the distressed leather shows little wear and I don't have to worry about scratching the leather.
