Well, not really, but it sure feels like it!! You guys will remember me freaking out over the Chanel 2010 C collection when pictures of the colors first came out. That excitement turned into disappointment when both of my SAs informed me that they had not ordered any caviar flaps in the Bleu Roi. I tossed and turned over whether or not I should call every boutique in the country to try to find at least one list that would guarantee me the Bleu Roi. Common sense told me that it would not be worth it and so I ended up calling only 3 places - Chanel boutique in Bloomingdales (SCP), Chanel boutique in Neimans (BH), Chanel boutique in Neimans (Newport Beach). Bloomingdals was still not sure if they had ordered the color but promised to call me if they did. BH Neimans said they would not be able to put me on the list until they knew the exact numbers they were getting. Newport Beach told me that they were getting two and that if they get my cc information, I might be able to secure the #2 spot. I went with that option not really thinking it would get me anywhere. I also decided to stop fretting over the stupid color and I eventually told myself that I didn't need another blue Chanel. Well surprise, surprise - the SA at Newport Beach called me Friday afternoon and told me my 2010C blue Chanel jumbo was waiting for me at the store!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God, this color is just A M A Z I N G. Breath of fresh air. For comparison, here is my navy maxi from the 2009 F/W collection:
You see, the noticeable difference in blue between the two makes this purchase completely justifiable :) Plus, theres no way in hell I would give up this much sought after color now that I have it in my hands...even if it means me sitting out on sale shoes this season (I'm limiting myself to 3 pairs). I will probably also need to wait until January to get the Bal but I guess thats okay considering I still have my red maxi to look forward to.
It just occurred to me that my four most recent purchases all happen to be blue...nothing wrong with that...
