Hi Ladies

i just picked up a preloved on ebay which was authenticated by the lovely ladies over at authenticate4u.

however i just received it and realised its actually a small version not the medium large version, its from 2003/2004 season therefore still has the gold plating

the seller named it as medium on her description title but in her more information she put the measurement as 9inches by 6inches

hmmmmm, therefore i guess i dont have a case against it do i :s


i am 5ft 6 therefore not sure if it is too small,

should i keep it?

It's a beautiful bag! I totally understand the size confusion as that happened to me too. I had a similar situation and I ended up keeping it as I got it for a great price. I did feel that it was a bit too small for me though, I'm 5'4". I think it looks great on you in the pic. I ended up selling mine because I just wasn't really getting any use out of it (got a jumbo instead), it really didn't hold much at all and felt a little awkward for me to use as an everyday bag....

Tough call... I guess it comes down to how much you want to carry around everyday. If you can get a lot of use out of it I say keep it because it does look good on you.

The bag is beautiful. It looks amazing in the pics.

I'm confused on the sizing....it looks like the current medium/large. The only current size that is smaller than that is the mini, which your bag doesn't seem to be. I would keep it :smile:

It looks great on you! I'm 5'3 and 105lbs. I was debating on the small and m/l when I bought my first Chanel. I went with the m/l because it was just $200 more but can fit quite a bit more, but I would've been fine with the small. If you got this bag for a good price & you like it then keep it.

I own a medium and previous had a preloved small from around same year. Yours looks like a medium in the photo. The small I had looked smaller than your bag.
