This past Thursday, I fell in love with a picture of the metallic purple Chanel Reissue 2.55 but was also sad cus I immediately realized there was no way in hell I would be able to find one still available (eBay doesn't count in my book...). Chanel bags are always highly coveted and basically sell out even before they reach the stores. Most SAs selfishly set aside the "it" bags for their loyal customers and tell us normal folk that we must wait patiently on the wait-list (which BTW is a bunch of crap cus you will never move up on that thing...). So to save myself the time and trouble, I didn't even consider lusting after the metallic purple Reissue since I kinda felt like it was a lost cause.
So anyways, DZ and I decided to stop by the Chanel on Rodeo today just so we could inquire with the SAs if it was possible to order the metallic purple and blue Reissues. As soon as we walked in, DZ exclaimed "Oh my god they have it!" She later said she expected me to jump for joy and was surprised when I froze and just stared at her. I think it was a combination of shock, disbelief, joy, and terror. Shocked and in disbelief that we would find it in BH of all places. Overjoyed with the possibility that I could actually own a metallic purple Reissue. Terrified at the thought of my next credit card statement. I wont bore you with the details of my purchase but say hello to my newest and most prized purchase yet!!I cannot get over how gorgeous the purple is...can you just imagine this with one of my black dresses?!? The double chains also give this bag a more young/hip look than compared to the Classic 2.55. The inside of the bag is just as beautiful as the outside and I just adore the stiched interlocking C's.
Hands down, today was the bestest shopping day ever and I'm so happy to know that the shopping gods love me this much :)
