** Sorry, I got carried away with my story so kinda long. Pics at bottom. Another fellow PFer posted a few days ago that she was able to purchase the gold chain from the accordeon as a repair piece... I've been wanting one for quite some time but was unable to find a SA that was willing to sell one or a store that had it in stock. (sometimes I felt they had it but the SA just didnt want to sell one or sometimes I was told they don't sell that separate from the accordeon). Her wonderful pics motivated me to again try to search for it. I was on holiday to visit SO, and inquired at one LV store and the SA said they didn't have it without even looking and somewhat discouragingly said it would take months to order and she would need to get a manager to order it (aside from that she was nice and offered to validate my parking ticket without me even asking so overall still a good experience). As we were driving away it occured to me theres more than one in close proximity so I called and a very sweet SA checked and told me they had it!! My SO was so tired from driving me and he just wanted to hit the beach but neverthelesss he drove me and the kind (and beautiful) SA was there with my item. It was a small purchase but she was so kind she happily gave me a box and cute little dustbag with it too. I left VERY happy and VERY satisfied. Length comparison pic... it was difficult to show but the chain is slighty longer than the vachetta strap when attached to the pochette. I was suprised as the chain looked short and I was afraid it might be too short. I was relieved to find it is perfect!! Modeling pic... I tried many times to take this pic but they all came out blurry. Here's the best of the bunch.
