Reveal! I exchanged my Metallic Mini Classic Flap for this

  1. Hi everyone! I recently bought a Mini Classic Flap in Metallic Lambskin. I loved it but I noticed cracking/peeling on the bottom after a handful of uses and was quite upset. I know that Metallic lambskin is delicate but I never expected it to do that just within a month.

    Here are some pics of the mini

    Gladly my SA was very nice and offered a return. Since it was my very first Chanel, I still wanted a Chanel item in the end so this is what I ended up getting.

  3. This is precisely the issue my sweet SA warned me about with metallics...cracking and chipping. Can't wait to see what you chose!!

  4. I waited for another mini or a black boy caviar WOC (and had to be magnetic because I refuse to buy the snap closure WOCs) and I also stalked the "where have you seen" forum. An SA in Honolulu had a boy magnetic WOC in stock but not in black. After contemplating a couple days, I asked if she still had it and she did so I purchased it over the phone.

    Here it is, Boy WOC with magnetic closure in calfskin.

  10. I think I remember a big thread in the Shopping forum where a tPFer had purchased the same bag in London, but she returned it because she didn't want to risk it peeling because it's so delicate.

  11. So pretty! Congrats on your new WOC!

    I also had the same problem with the metallic lambskin. I got a card holder in metallic lambskin (same color like yours) and I haven't even used it and I had the same issue you had.. As much as I love the look of it, I decided to get something else.

    How much did u get it for? ?
    I'm so glad the magnatic version came out! But i too suppose it would probably cost a little more than the Classic button ones?
