I got my first Chanel classic back in the 90s, I think when I was 20 or 21, so it's probably 16 years old or so. I got the small lambskin with gold hardware and took that bag everywhere! That purse got scratched but still looks good - I just have to condition it.

I bought my first Chanel bag in 2004. I bought a Cambon bowler in black with white CC's ... I saw the large tote in the display window and had to go into the Chanel boutique. To be honest, I wasn't really into the classic flaps (I thought they were a little old ladyish) but buying my first Chanel made me appreciate ALL the Chanel pieces.

that's a loaded question for me! LOL!
I bought my 'dream bag' - the Grand Shopping tote - 1st photo, but coulnd't bring myself to remove the tags.
I kept it for about a week or so adn took it back for my REAL dream bag! I knew it was right as I clipped the tags off as soon as I got her home!
It's teh Luxury Line Flap in Metallic black. Weird really since I SWORE I wouldn't carry a flap bag, but this one is SO beautiful and unique!
{2nd & 3rd photos}:love:

I'm 31 BTW!

I'm way late to the party! For my 46th birthday last month I bought myself the beige/black Reporter bag on sale. And I never would have known about the sale if wasn't for the awesome PF!!

My first Chanel piece is my Cambon bowling bag. My second Chanel piece is the Gold Medallion Tote but the hardware was fragile and broke, so I exchanged it for a silver one. I absolutely love it :love: It's the perfect everyday bag. Hopefully my third piece will be a classic jumbo flap :graucho:

Hi. My first Chanel piece was a medium sized classic flap in caviar. I was 23.

By the way, bijou, are those cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery on your avatar?
