    Hi guys. I'm so excited to finally share my perfect first Chanel item with you all. I have been stalking the Chanel forum for years and I can finally join you all, with my own baby!

    I actually had to return the first bag I bought, (I made a thread about it, I'll try to find it and link it) http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel/jumbo-reveal-lots-of-pics-and-i-need-933637.html

    I was absolutely heartbroken as this was my first experience buying anything Chanel, and I had my heart set on a black caviar jumbo shw for years and years. I spent hours in the boutique finding the best one available.
    However when I got it home it was defective. So I had to travel back to London a couple of day later.

    Anyway long story short they reluctantly gave me my money back, and I went to a different boutique for my perfect bag.

    The whole experience has left me a little bitter, because of the shocking quality in the caviar bags.

    However I still really love the M/L in black caviar gold hardware, but with the price increase for the UK yesterday, and the poor quality I'm seriously doubting whether to save up for one or something else. What do you guys think?

    I am a little concerned about the lamb especially the quilts "de-puffing" but when the SA put the lamb next to the caviar in the same colour and hardware I knew instantly which one I truly wanted.
    And I didn't want to settle on something that maybe more practical and harder wearing, but I don't like the look of as much, so I went with the bag that took my breath away. (Haha how cheesy is that!)

    Anyway enough of the rambling. Here she is, I still can't believe I own one. ImageUploadedByPurseForum1457438784.921570.jpg
