OMG! What have i bought?? @_@

omg omg omg!!!!!! I must be crazy! Was surfing the net for some filofax inserts, and came accross blufly. typed in Chanel routinely to see what handbag they have, and bam! i saw black 2.55 diamond flap, heck i don't even know the the line that well! It's measurements are 14 x8 1/2x2 1/2, somehow i just pulled out my handy dandy amex and just click checkout, all w/n 2 min!!!! Darn it, i must done too many X-mas shopping online (bad habit-speed through check out b/4 item is out of stock *smack finger*)

Should i return? i mean the price is a little over 2k, i am sure more Chanel educated tpfers will appreciate it more, and it certainly it's classic after all, but my ultimate dream flap is in lambskin :crybaby:

It's a gorgeous bag tho! Yummmmmmm! Personally, I would prefer it with silver hardware... But to spend $2K plus on a bag :balloon: I think you would have to be in loooooooooove with it to keep it!

okay, you got me there, my plan was only open the box to fill out the return form, b/c if i dare to try it on me, don't think i have the heart to return it :sweatdrop: but i still think i am not educated(Chanel wise) enough to appreciate such handbag, since classic flap will always be in store, i plan to purchase one after i educate myself more about Chanel. Classic flap could be a great self award for a special achievement.:P
Besides, i really can't think of a place to carry Chanel here in SA, TX.....it would be pointless for me to carry Chanel for show off, most pp tell me "eww that's such a granny bag" when i told them how i love to learn more about classic flap.

hi! well, if your heart is set on another type of Chanel, i have learned from experience that it doesn't really work to talk ourselves into what will always be whenever we wear it, "second best". But, if anyone says to you "granny bag" please ignore! Maybe its a granny bag to them if they're between the ages of 4 and 8 lol

Chanel a granny bag? :indignant look:: we don't think so! :rolleyes:

I have 2 reissues - a 227 in grey and a 226 in dark white and I absolutely love them. This is the classiest bag ever!!!!!!! This is a 2005 anniversary edition and very hard to come by, I believe. If you return this and decide later you want one you probably will not be able to find it. Don't return it right away - try it on for several days before making your final decision. Good luck - you'll know what that right decision is when you see it.

Once you receive it, post pics - there are several people here who can verify authenticity. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them.
