I passed on this beautiful bag last year when it was released. By the time I finally decided I had to have it I couldn't find one. I was told it was sold out everywhere. I was thrilled to find out that Chanel was re-releasing the lady braid for Fall so I put my name down on the waitlist for the dark grey, which is gorgeous, but I still pined for the violet from 2006. Well my favorite SA (Brendan) at Chanel on E. 57th Street was able to locate the last one for me last week. I'm am so beyond thrilled! This is a refreshing splash of color for my collection and just in time for Fall.
