A Good Dilemma

Is a dilemma ever a good thing?

In this case, it might be a very good thing. All my life I've wanted a Chanel handbag. And now it's within my grasp.

But what do I go for? The classic quilted handbag with chain strap?

The oversized and practical tote?

Or the updated electric version of a classic?

I don't think I can go wrong, but your thoughts are welcome.

OMG LIV GET THEM ALL!!!


sorry, that was my first initial reaction to your post.

I agree with Anya, get the classic quilted shoulder bag, it's a classic for a reason! and it will be timeless and versatile because it can be worn with everything!

and if anything, since I don't have a Chanel bag and won't be buying one any time soon, I can at least vicariously buy it through you :)

oh that's a toughy!! i'm going to have to go with the classic quilted handbag!

Definitely classic! If it's your first, you have to go with the iconic option. The tote just doesn't look as chic.

LUCKY GIRL!!!! I want one too. I'd say go for the oversized tote (because that's the one I want) or the classic quilt. Depends what you're going to be mostly using it for. ;)

Oh my dear, this is not a dilemma. The electric version of a classic, of course. Plus that blue is GORGEOUS and really pops!

I see too many fakes of the first two, and they are so common on the streets even if they are real...

hi everyone!

thanks for all your feedback. I think I've made up my mind...it's going to be the bag I've always wanted.

the classic black quilted chain bag.

I won't get it for a while as it's actually coming via someone from France but when I do, I'll post for sure!

thanks again!

I have the quilted shoulder bag in black. Even though I rarely wear it out now because I've decided that logos are evil (at least for this year), I know that I can turn to it when I feel like it-- it's classic! Black is always in style. And buy a big size because you're going to need the room for your stuff.

I don't especially like that tote bag... Too much logo for me. Plus I always think of those girls from the Hills wearing stuff like that. LOL

Yes! Good choice. Those things are incredible.

I'd vote for the updated version of the classic. More fun!

I love the blue bag but the classic black 2.55 is a lot more traditional and versatile for accessorizing. Lucky girl!

The classic quilted with chain handle! Are you getting the classic or reissue? I'm hoping when I get a new job I can treat myself as well. So exciting for you!

Larissa said...
