It all started with a $150 Nordstrom gift card I received during the holidays. Been holding on to it. Yesterday, I decided to go to Nordstrom to get something small from Chanel. That's when the chain reaction started, haha.
My goodness, the things we do for the love of Chanel. It took me almost 1.5 hours to get there,,,19 miles away.
I asked the nice SA if I can please see some cardholders. I have a lambskin one but wanted something sturdier. There was only one, a black camelia. I didn't want another black Chanel though. She said oh wait here's another one. It was inside the black pouch so I didn't see it right away. When she showed it to me, I knew right away I wanted it.
Here she is:
There I was, so proud of myself for being a smart shopper, hahaha. Curiosity killed the cat. Red with gold hardware is my ultimate Chanel HG. I looked at the tag. Hmmm 15A. I was late to the game. I just lucked out because it's from last year. Oh how I wished there's a flap bag in this exact color and hardware.
The Nordstrom SA said they have a 227. I
was hesitant because I thought it might be a bit big for my needs.
This morning, I called Saks Beverly Hills and as fate would have it, they had a 225 and a 226!
I braved LA traffic this afternoon just to get to my bag!
Time to go home. Traffic (again!).I only had coffee and toast for breakfast and haven't had lunch. My endorphins and dopamine were on high gear and I wasn't feeling hungry at all. Well, 1.5 hours later and finally home, I was tired and hungry. Thankfully, this little cute thing was waiting for me.
Are we done with the $150 card? It's unbelievable how much one can buy with a relatively modest gift card.:lolots: I had a similar situation with Missoni non long ago. I enjoyed the story and all the gorgeous Chanel pieces, congrats!!!
