I've wandered over here from the Christian Louboutin sub-forum and have recently decided to purchase a Chanel purse. I'm actually more of a shoe collector than a purse collector (I have only one purse and it's Coach). I love my one purse, but I figured that I'll eventually need a new purse and I wanted to go big. I am in need of some advice and information as I'm very, very unfamiliar with Chanel. I need a purse that will pretty much last me forever and I have no idea how Chanel purses hold up. I've decided that it's going to be black but I haven't decided on the style. Any info is greatly appreciated! I am interested in the Maxi, Jumbo, Cerf, and Camera Case. I'm particularly interested in the Caviar Cerf with silver hardware and the Distressed Black Leather Camera Case with Black Hardware. I'm leaning toward the camera case and would like some insight on the durability of the purse or if there's any chance the distressed leather will start to peel. I took a picture of myself in the boutique modeling the Camera Case (I'm also holding the beige cerf on my other arm). Opinions on which purse should be my first and ONLY purchase?
