Finally! One of my must-have bags on my list is now mine! I’ve waited for this for such a looong time so just imagine the joy I’m feeling right now! Hehehe! 🙂 Well, for those who don’t know, there isn’t any Chanel boutique here in Manila so just imagine my craving for Chanel bags. Hehehe! Of course, there are people who also sell Chanel bags here, both brand new and preowned, but most of them just price the brand new bags unfairly! Well, a lot of them sell flap bags and when I say a lot, they are REALLY a lot. It’s just that most of them sell medium flap bags in lambskin, which is a no-no for me. Hmmm… Not really a no-no. In fact, I find lambskin very, very nice and elegant. I simply can’t afford to have a high maintenance bag. Lambskin needs a lot of care as it gets scratched right away. I personally think lambskin is not for everyday use and is not for me too. Hehehe! I can be too clumsy at times so my only choice is to get my dream medium flap bag in caviar elsewhere. And where is the cheapest? Europe it is! 🙂 Anyways, meet my new baby below, Chanel 2.55 Medium Classic Flap bag in black Caviar (or some also call it large classic flap bag)…

kohlmarkt vienna austriaI bought her during my second day in Europe. Talking about being too excited, huh???? LOL! Thanks to our tour guide, who helped us find Kohlmarkt Street in Vienna, Austria! Oh, let me just say it’s now my fave street in the famous shopping area in Vienna. Hahaha! It’s where Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and the likes can be found (except for Balenciaga… Huhuhu!).

I was actually choosing between the jumbo and the medium flap bag because of the small price difference. For those who know me well, my instinct is always to choose the bigger one. The bigger, the better for me! Hehehe! 🙂 When I tried on the jumbo, oh dear, for some reason it looks sooo big on me! I normally have big bags, even bigger than the jumbo flap bag, but I don’t know what makes the jumbo flap look awkward on me. Most probably it’s because of the style. Thankfully, my SA was so kind to tell me the truth that she also prefers the medium as the jumbo looked weird on me. Well, I realized that my decision was definitely right since the medium is sooo perfect both for day and night. Plus, if I want to put more stuff inside my bag, I can always use my Chanel Petite Shopping Tote (since I find the size of the PST and the jumbo flap somewhat the same). I’m into big bags, but not for a flap bag. I just find the size of the jumbo too big for its style. Besides, my dream bag has always been the black medium flap bag in caviar. Conclusion: The Chanel 2.55 medium classic flap bag in caviar is really for THE ONE for me! Hehehe! 🙂
