Meet My New Friend….Chanel

I’ve been waiting half my life for this handbag!!!!

After watching marathon episodes of Dukes of Melrose on Bravo, I decided that I MUST make my purchase. It’s now or never. I had two other chances while in Paris. I wish I would have done it then so I could get the book and stamp saying I purchased it on 31 Rue Cambon. Oh well…it’s still a purse that I covet, right?

Below are my “reveal” pictures (I thought I was the only one that took reveal pictures until I recently stumbled upon the PurseForum and saw so many other people doing it. Yay! And now I’m addicted to that forum. )  I got the gold hardware that I’ve always wanted. Caviar was the leather of choice since it’s less maintenance than lambskin.

I promised the sales associate at the boutique (Tovar) that I would wear it every day. I also promised my husband that I would not buy anymore purses after this one.Well maybe my last purchase for 2013…
