I was wondering if they do this to you too, at your Chanel boutique. I've never had it happen at LV or Gucci or anything. Quite seriously, the two SAs I usually go to will not say the price out loud! They show me the pricetag and after they ring up the purchase, they write down the total on a card and slide it to me. It's hilarious, because I don't think it's such a large amount of amount of money that warrents being written... I guess they're trying to be classy about it. It just amuses me, I was wondering if this happens at your Chanel boutique too.
