I am officially a Chanel owner! I had been looking for a Chanel bag since November 2011 when I heard of Chanel’s price increase in early 2012. Considering that Chanel increase almost 20% twice in 2011, I find it heart stoppingly frightening of another 15-20% increase. Unfortunately, what I was looking for, Chanel Classic Flap Medium in Black Caviar, was sold out! I did not want my first Chanel purchase to be used and of questionable authenticated.
I found out Bloomingdales was offering 15% off any items purchased within 48 hours with a credit approval. However, no one had what I was looking for. Until a SA from Chanel at South Coast Plaza Bloomingdales mentioned that she only had 1 Classic Flap left in Jumbo and it was in a turquoise color. A picture she sent to me took my breath away. It was lovely and colorful. Blue has always been my favorite color and I was happy to the point that I was dreaming about it day and night.
I made my purchase.
Until Christmas came around, and my husband surprised me with my Chanel Classic Flap in Medium Caviar – my first choice. How he gotten it when everywhere was sold out. He went to the boutique and purchased the display.
We will be paying these two purses off for the next couple of years! But it’s well worth it.
