I caved at the the Chanel store in Las Vegas and purchased the small shopping tote in black with silver hardware. The SA was extremely nice. By best friend purchased the same bag. We are having them shipped home to avoid tax. Price increase March 1. $100. They have made the caviar so much smoother. It hasn't sunk in yet. If any one is looking for this bag- they have maybe 3 left. Ask for Vicky. Now if I can just not go back and buy a necklace. Hit Hermes also, but that is another post. I will try to put up photos when I get the bag. I have to keep reminding myself- investment- investment.
