But you look so good and sleek with your black Sevruga! Does yours give you problem like some other experienced?I just prefered the look of the quilted vs. caviar. They are like two extremes; double quilted and plain caviar. Keelp in mind that the cosmos is a shiny goatskin, it is almost like a matte patent and the "CC" is much smaller. The Sevruga is a nice understated WOC. It was a tough decsion.
I have not seen the Cosmo WOC irl, only in pictures. I read you mentioned its double-quilted. You may want to inspect the quilt stitches carefully to make sure there are no loose threads, etc.There were no quality issues with the particular bag I had. No marks or scratches. It is a sleek look and that is why it was a tough choice. It was not reasonable to have both. I might change my mind again if the silver color ever surfaces.
The cosmos that I looked at in store had a slight mark on it, but I think that when a bag is displayed and handled things like this is bound to happen. I ordered from NM locker stock to ensure that I get an item that was never on display.
How about the material and the feel though? Don't you think it feels a little fake? I just got mine, and I'm contemplating on returning it.norma haynes & gators, Congrats!
I love the faceted CC emblem as well and how sleek it looks, so relieved and glad to know yours are perfect. I have 2 (1 for a friend) waiting for me to unwrap when I get home next Fri, I hope they are both immaculate!
I have not seen mine yet as I'm still away. Don't quite understand what you meant by feeling "fake". Chanel uses many different materials and not always its classic Lambskin and Caviar. I just received a 09C Lt Beige Classic Lambskin M/L Flap from SAKs and I was really disappointed that it was smooshy and not puffy/structured like my other old lambs. I also remembered some ladies complained about how wrinkly and thin the portobello leather was, some hated the 08 bubblequilt leather (but I love it to bits), then there is the infamous washed caviar which can also be prone to scratches or marks. Some don't even like the hardy, good old caviar feeling its not luxurious enough. How about the metallic leather where some think its aluminum foil-like and prone to peeling, but some have no problem with it and simply love it?! Chanel Vinyl and Denim Cabas were once the most sought after bags and they were not even leather!How about the material and the feel though? Don't you think it feels a little fake? I just got mine, and I'm contemplating on returning it.
My, this must be your 3rd Chanel purchases that didn't go well this month! So sorry to hear that. I won't be worried about the numbers on the box but do the hologram inside the purse and authenticity card numbers matched up? You should return yours if it comes with a scratch. I know this purse is slightly cheaper than other WOCs, but for almost $1k a pop at full retail price (not an ebay snag or sale item), the little purse should still come flawless!you girls are very lucky. Maybe Chanel isnt my thing. I received my sevruga today and theres a slight scratch on it, but I think its just hte leather? I scratched another part of the bag and it did the same thing. Seems like the leather is pretty fragile, so Im not as concerned about that. What really annoys me is that the authenticity number on the box doesnt match the one on the bag!!!! UGH what would you guys do?!
