Hi girls, well it's a long time I'm lurking on this forum, read a lot of posts and sometimes also leave comments. I also asked for some tips about what to buy in the past comparing LV and Chanel... ok, now this is the situation! I have the willing to buy a Chanel bag but I'd prefer not to spend more than 900 euro, something like 1000/1200 dollars, not more. That money is half of my savings, I still live with my parents so I don't need them to live and eat but I'm a bit sad to see half of savings go away, I hope you understand. From the other point of view, this year I took my degree and I haven't yet bought a gift for my self, neither for my b-day and Christmas. And I love Chanel so much and it would be my first item (and only one for some years probably!). So I think I would like to get a East/West bag (A28598) in caviar, black (maybe cambon line is cheaper but I prefer something more classical). It's ok for my budget and it's something I will use forever. What would you do if you were in my shoes? I mean, for those of you that cannot buy all the stuff they wish, do you think you were going to buy the bag the same or not in my situation? Plus, most of my shoes are high quality (Tod's), but I have mainly low cost cloths from Zara or Benetton or other similar italian brands. Do you think that a Chanel bag looks not matching with that look? I hope you understand what I mean... I don't want to look ridicolous! So now I'm crossing my fingers that Chanel boutique will be open next Friday, I have only that free day as it's holiday to go there. Thank for your attention and sorry if I wrote such a long and silly topic, I just need to vent and to know if there is someone else in my same condition or not?
