OK, so last week I went to the mall with a friend. I introduced her to my fave SA. We looked at some bags and then she asked the SA about the Chanel Coco Cabas bag. I am not familar with Chanel at all. All they had was a huge denim one. My friend commented on the black leather ones and how gorgeous they are. MY SA said she would get me one. Fine. Came home, searched on the Chanel forum, saw gorgeous pictures and of course began to obsess. SA calls me and says it's been very hard to track one down, that perhaps I should wait until Fall.... Fine. Of course I could not stop thinking about it...... Decided to talk to my husband about it He said it's a status bag, I don't need it, would I want to carry the girl's sippy cups and snacks in it, etc.... After that conversation, I pretty much decided I wasn't going to get the bag. Fine. Get a call from my SA just a few minutes ago. They got ONE in and did I want to buy it. SA cannot hold it for me since there are so many people wanting one (so they say.....). I ask if I buy it, can I return it and she said yes. So I went ahead and bought it I am going to the mall on Friday to see it in person. My saving grace is knowing that I don't have to keep it, I can just leave it at the store. It's $1995 plus tax. I am sending practially my entire Balenciaga bags to Anns Fabulous Finds later this week, so I should be getting some money from those bags. I also work from home and will be getting a nice check next week since I did well in June. But still, a bag over 2k???? I did not post this on the Chanel forum b/c well, I'm a bit embarrased and I also felt that perhaps this forum would be a bit more unbiased. Thank you!!!!!!
