May I present to you my new loves...Suhali L'Aimable and Cles!!! I was going through my tiniest collection of bags last week, trying to see which ones I use a lot and which ones need to be sold / get replaced with something else. So, since I never go to fancy outings , I figured that I will not get good use out of my Chanel Timeless Clutch. Yes, it's gorgeous; yes, it's Chanel; it will never go out of style, but if I don't / won't use it, why keep it (it was also not cheap, even though I bought it right before the price increase)? It will just sit in its box, only coming out for pictures now and then... Even hough I loved that bag, I couldn't justify keeping her when I knew there were so many other bags around... So, I sold her... Since I had a black Chanel Classic Flap with silver hardware already in my collection, I figured that a small dinner bag with gold hardware would be perfect! Yes, L'Aimable is small but it's perfect for going out - dinners, bars, lunches with friends, parties, etc. It's classic, gorgeous, and doesn't scream LV (unless you're a true LV fan) all at the same time! Anyway, I'm in love... The only thing I DON'T like about it is that there's a lot of hardware that can scratch easily. I just think I'm going to be afraid to use it... I was able to find both L'Aimable and Cles for LESS than the price of that Chanel Clutch!!!! Both pieces were (and still are!) in near pristine condition! Before I found the Cles, I called my local LV store and asked if they had it in stock. The girl I talked to (not my usual SA) said that there are only a few of them left in the whole country! Elux as well as LV.com were sold out of both L'Aimable and Cles in black. I was lucky to find both in such great condition for less than retail! A huge thank you to both sellers! They know who they are! But anyway, on to the pics!
