Hi!

Ready for a reveal?

Before I strip…I want to thank all the lovely ladies who replied to my pm…am sorry I didn’t reply, but that’s cos tpf was going glitchy on me and I couldn’t reply to pms and I was lucky if I could post one reply…having said that, I don’t know if the problem has been fixed, so if I cant post after this you know why…

The Story: I promised to get mom a pressie for xmas from my first paycheque last year and she decided on a dark navy reissue RHW size 227 but it was sold out in stores. She did say a dark red would be lovely so this year when I saw tpfers posting pictures, I bounced into action…From the thread title, yes…short story, the local stores told me “Chanel did not make any red bags for the fall collection.” So I steel myself and braced the unknown…ordering overseas from a sa I have never seen before and for a bag never touched or seen before…this was a huge step for me….

I was very, very worried cos SAKS took a week to authorised shipping…and I was emailing the sa almost practically everyday on when the bag would arrive…cos he had no explanation for the delay…





a little upset with the packaging – no chanel ribbon or the new boxes you ladies were getting…especially when I requested for gift wrapping cos it’s a gift…

ohhh...I finally have an audience!! :P

Worried about the creases …are these normal??



At the flap



At the sides



At the other side

On hindsight, I shouldnt have mailed the bag to my mom directly...

Honestly, I think the creases are normal. I bought a Chanel Chain Me flap and it came creased like that.......it will become more creased with use. It's natural. Reveal the whole thing!! :smile:

Oh stop teasing already lol!
All reissue flaps in distressed leather look like that. In fact, they can be stored flat (unthinkable, I know). The fold marks won't be too obvious when the bag is carried and stuffed.
