I recently made a very exciting purchase... I call it more of an investment ;) I have been wanting a Chanel bag for a long time now and decided to take the plunge (especially with a rumored price increase happening early in the new year and no sales tax!). I was in the Nordstrom at Downtown Portland for a really long time making my decision. The amazing sales associate was so patient and helpful with me! I couldn't help eyeing her amazing taste in fashion as well too (a fab Rick Owen's leather jacket, lace up boots, and a beautiful Chanel scarf...) so I knew I was in good hands. Since this is my first bag she suggested starting with a classic style. Being the busy holiday season, they were running out of a lot styles quickly but she pulled this Reissue style out of the back and it was love at first sight. I love being able to carry this bag as a cross body in addition to a shoulder bag. It's the larger size (similar to the classic jumbo flap) but smaller then the bags I'm used to carrying. It holds my wallet (and its a big one), iPhone, glasses, and a small cosmetics bag; all the essentials!
