Hi Everyone, I'm new to this subforum. I'm always in the balenciaga subforum and just recently decided to expand my collection and would like to add a chanel in the mix. So I've come for advice on what would be the best chanel purchase for a first time buyer ? What bag/style is a staple and must be in every bag collection ? Alittle about me: -i love big bags and usually need quite abit of space so I can fit everything I need during the daytime. I usually carry around my makeup bag, a book/magazine to read while on the subway, wallet, my planner, and some other small essentials. -i'm very casual person. -i need something that can take a beating and still look fabulous at the end of the day. I don't baby my bags...I use them/take them everywhere...wheather it's socializing with friends, friday night dinners with the family, small trips on the weekends, etc. Anyways I'm so excited to finally purchase a chanel..I never would've thought that in a one years time of saving that I'd be able to purchase it for myself considering that I'm a full-time student and only work less than part-time right now. thanks guys!!!!
