Hi, I'd like everyone's advice as to what a newbie should get for her first Chanel. I need to be educated so I can make an informed decision. So what are the top 5 classic bags? Please post pics because I'm a total novice regarding Miss Chanel's bags. For me, I'm 47, a social worker, and dress very casually. For comparison, my LV's are: red epi speedy, fuschia denim baggy, and tambourin. I prefer silver over gold hardware (hardware color can be a deal-breaker) and my favorite color is red. My favorite bag style is hobo or messenger but I'm not a fan of the uber-huge bags that are the rage today. Oh, and it needs a shoulder strap. Thanks so much! I look forward to seeing pics of luscious Chanel bags.
