My girlfriend just bought a Chanel handbag for $3,000 from the new cruise collection and she called me for my opinion on it. I told her to "take it back" because I don't like it. I wish I could post a picture of it here, but I couldn't copy it from the official website and I couldn't find it anywhere on this site. To see it, go to Chanel.com, USA, Fashion, Accessories, Cruise '07-'08 and it's slide number 14. It looks like a straw tote with a houndstooth pattern, but it's really a basket weave pattern made out of black patent leather and white satin. I like the shape of the bag, but the houndstooth pattern threw me off. Please give me your opinion and tell me if you think she should keep it or take it back!!!!!
