Chanel Lovelies, I was indecisive on whether I would attend what would be my first formal event in all my years of living. I didn't have a dress, not a lot of jewelry, and had no idea the fashion parameters for this black-tie event. While I contemplated, I thought, "I don't have an evening bag either", which spawned this thread. So off went my search for the perfect evening bag, and most stores never had them, or had sold out--in some cases, *right* before I arrived! I didn't realize how much of a unicorn Chanel was. I sent photos to the SAs and begged them to let me know if they got an item in. With my horrendous work schedule, sometimes I would miss their phone calls. In the meanwhile, I decided to attend the event, but I still didn't have the items to put my "look" together. I even searched tPF for help in deciding on shoes. On the day of my event, in the middle of doing my hair and steaming my dress, my SA calls to tell me a purse on my wish list is available for purchase! Talk about scampering. I had to rush to the store, in traffic, buy the purse, then rush home to get ready for the event. I truly felt like the Working Girl Cinderella! So here's a different sort of reveal. Only because it worked out soooo well! I loved it, and it blended in nicely with everything.
