My 2.55 Dark Red Metallic Reissue (Size "225") arrived! YAY!!! The color is GOR-GEOUS. I posted photos below of the handbag with and without flash (just look at the labeling of the *.jpg images). The bag came from Chanel Hawaii, so the tags were cut off. I actually called the manager (who sold me the bag) today to ask about this - apparently it's a company policy to cut the tags off. I told them this is the first time for me, where my handbags arrive w/o tags. Both this and the Pink Glazed Lambskin Timeless Classic, both from Hawaii, arrived w/o their tags. Well, it's no big deal. I know it's new since the chains are still wrapped in paper. I told the manager that I have received bags from other Chanel boutiques before (non-department stores) where the tags are still on. Anyway! LOL Check out how they packaged the purse! With all that paper and the white camelia stuck on the tissue paper inside the box, in the upper right corner! And they seem to have put my bag in a special Chanel box, which I included a pic of. This box seems more solid/sturdy than the black ones they usually come in. Chanel Hawaii really went all out with the packaging! :okay: Enjoy the pictures ladies! I can't wait to take her out to use!
