Confession: I am a Balenciaga girl. No matter what anyone says or which bags catch my eye, in the end.. I always go to my b-bags. But I've lurked in the Chanel forum for ages and I have finally found THE bag that has caught my eye AND my heart! The diamond shine flap is just gorgeous beyond words (thanks *jennifer* and iluvchanel for being so helpful!)... and I must have it. See, I have this silly tradition of buying myself a bday gift- it's to remind myself that I should appreciate ME once in a while. So ladies, please help me find my gorgeous bday gift! I have NEVER bought a chanel before and have no idea how to go about doing so.. I am swamped with school work right now and cannot make it out to the city (SF), which breaks my heart because I really wanted to go to the boutique and play with all the bags. But then again, I already know what I want (typical hehe) so it's okay. If anyone sees, hears, or even smells (LOL!) a BLACK diamond shine flap, will you let me know? I have a debit card (hehe NOO to credit- I hate buying stuff on credit) out and ready. I would prefer to buy from Saks but only because I hear that NM does not take anything other than a NM card??? Please correct me if I'm wrong.. Thanks so much!!!! I'm so thankfu that there is a place like this to turn to. And I am SO EXCITED at the prospect of owning my first CHANEL!!!!! WAHHHH!!!
