Chanel M/L Classic Flap in caviar with silver hardware

Happy birthday to me! To celebrate turning another year older (ugh haha), I went out and purchased a lil something for myself. It may be small, but it sure ain't cheap! The timing was just right because Chanel decided to raise prices this time around by a whopping 30%+! o.O I don't know what the hell they're thinking?! It's already bad enough that they have 1-2 price increases per year, but this one tops it all. Ranting aside, here is my lovely Chanel M/L Caviar Flap in silver hardware <3 (buy pre-owned)
I chose caviar leather over lambskin because I've heard Chanel's quality has gone down, and lambskin needs babying so much more. I think caviar is still dressy enough where I can carry it to functions and also use in the daytime to run errands. It's one of the smallest bags I have, but it's ok because I can still fit the essentials :) I love love love this bag!

  1. Hi Cee! Just wanted to let you know that the comments section on your blog is a little wonky because you can't see the word verification on the bottom. So I'm guessing that's why everyone is having a hard time leaving comments.

    Other than that, I love your blog! I love how you put your outfits together so beautifully. :)

  2. Oh I only managed to figure it out by hitting tab a couple times after typing to find the word verification box and post comment button.

    Congrats on your Chanel! It's gorgeous!

  5. Gorgeous bag!! I got my jumbo right around the same time - I had been planning to wait, but it was never going to happen if I didn't bite the bullet before all of these crazy increases!

  6. @ Pretty Little World - I felt exactly the same way! Now there are rumors there's going to be another increase later this year! :O So glad we both bought when we did :)

  9. OK never mind my previous inquiry. Found my answer here. =) I heard about the price increase. Boo. Oh well I'm not sure if I could pull the trigger with such a steep increase.

  10. @I am Khatu - The jumbo is definitely more of an everyday bag... I had to be downsize a lot as to what I tote around everyday. Did the jumbo look good on you? I found it looked too big on me so I went with the M/L.

    @PearlsAndGreenTea - Thank you! M/L is such a classic!

    @Couture and Crayons - This recent increase is insane! After my one and only, I think I'm done with Chanel lol. I've heard that Paris prices are currently around pre-increase prices... so you could always take a vacation and buy your first Chanel there ;)

  11. Just read your nostalgic post about your bag collection...it was fun! : P

    Great choice on the Chanel. I personally also love the black on silver but both my bags are black on gold because I bought pre-owned and wasn't too too picky. BLack on gold seems to be quite popular but I think black w/ silver is much more versatile! I am envious you bought before the hike...I was moseying around and then bam..it happened and now I refuse to fork over $3400 plus tax for a medium flap. Sighs...
