  • where do i get a paddington bag

  • Which one are you looking for do you know? I can tell you your best bet to find a Paddington (they are hard to come by right now) but let me know what it is you’re looking for!!

  • Jen

    When can I get that Chanel bag and how much is it?

  • Jen- Let us look into it. Might take a little searchin’ because that bag was just a shot of the fall 2005 releases, but many are not out yet. Let me see what I can find out ok??

  • Jen

    That would be great. I’ve been checking the chanel website for ages trying to find pictures of their new releases but they never seem to update.

  • pucci_mama

    Jen, the Chanel bag is called the square vintage-and is $1795 it also comes in white.

    Great bags you guys have here, i love your selection ;)

  • Jen

    Do you know the measurements of the Chanel bag? Thanks.

  • Sonia

    I too am interested in that black vintage chanel bag, do you know which store i can get it from ?

  • billyjoe

    i love that blue chloe paddington bag!

  • Jenny

    If I were to get a balenciaga bag for this fall, what color should I get? I’m looking for more of an everyday wear bag….

    thanks!

  • Krissy

    Jenny, I have the same problem, I want the White Balenciaga or the Red for fall, but I can’t decide, either one I get I will have to wait a few weeks for the store to get it!

  • Suellen Zimet

    Can’t find the Paddington anywhere to see up close and personal. Also, is it about over now? I don’t want to buy it at the end of the party – Is the Balenciaga still going strong? Thx.

  • casey

    do you know where I can buy BALENCIAGA handbags wholesale (for small resale shop) two or three at a time? Also, other high end handbag dealers with a small minimum? Thanks.

    Balenciaga is pretty popular where I am, I am seeing the Motorcycle bag, or alot of people are buying Phython Silverado, it kind of goes with do you want a girly bag, or a casual bag.

  • Cari

    I’m about to purchase a Balenciaga, and can’t decide on a color. Also not sure what will be available. I’m not too concerned about a “fall appropriate” color, bc I think it all depends on personal style. I love the cognac brown, it’s very versatile…but I’m more partial to a brighter color, like yellow or seafoam. Any insight on which I might choose? I just can’t make up my mind, but I’m ready to buy!!!
    HELP!

  • nick

    I bought a chanel fur bag from http://www.iofferbags.com ,their bag quality is very perfect.

  • hele

    I also love the chanel vintage square bag and came into contact with it when i was in heathrow terminal 3 airport end of Oct. it was beautiful and extremely soft. the bag itself is not too big just like a little box i’ll say similar or slightly smaller than the LV speedy 25 but big enough to use it as an everyday bag. it costs £800 tax free.

  • Janet

    I just got a look alike Balenciaga purse a t target yesterday. It was only 15 dollars and it looks just like the real one

  • LINDA

    I RECENTLY PURCHASED THE VINTAGE LEATHER SQUARE CHANEL BAG FROM SAKS FIFTH AVE NY. THE INSIDE OF THE BAG SAYS MADE IN ITALY. I THOUGHT THAT CHANEL WAS MADE IN PARIS. COULD SOMEONE LET ME KNOW IF IT IS ALSO MADE IN ITALY. THANKS

  • hele

    hi linda, if u got the bag from saks u shouldnt need to worry. probably due to high demands they also have manufactury in italy too. like LV they have manufactury in spain, usa and france. i’ll say call them to ask for sure if u want to know for sure. anyway i was going to get the vintage square but ended up with a 2.55 instead. i will get the vintage square but can u tell me is it an everyday bag? also does it sratch easily? is it in lambskin? thanks

  • ahley

    hi I relly like paris and nicky hilton there so cool and nice and I relly love them bouth ……..one day I buot aney jeans for britney spears from new-york it was very nice

    BYE-BYE

  • Sherry

    I love the bags you have listed here and they contain some of the hottest…question – what is the magazine publication that shows the “hottest bags” of the season? Is it InStyle or one of the ‘gossip’ type (people, enquirer, etc) sources. I would just like to see the bags as worn by the celebrities who love them. That was how I found out about the Marc Jacobs Stam bag..:-)

  • Karen

    I want to look closer at Paddington up close and personal. Also, is it about over now? I don’t want to buy it at the end of the party – Is the Balenciaga still going strong? I was also trying to look at some chanel bag from chanel-bag.com but it seems they do not have this bag.

  • Milly Anderson

    I’m getting a Balenciaga when I go on vacation in a couple weeks. :grin:

  • momo

    Hi,
    Well, I just have to say what a cool site this is! I love designer handbags and especially Chanel. My question is how do I clean the chain straps on my quilted Chanel bag? They are just the gold chain with no leather intertwined. They are a little dull and just need shinning up. Any suggestions?
    Thanks so much!!

  • Pat

    I did not see anything about the Balenciaga Midday for A/W 2009. You may want to take a look at it at http://www.verasgirl.com

    More of a squarish shape made from calf leather. They have it in nero, anthracite and marrone. Enjoy looking!

  • Pat

    Hey you guys!

    Not only are bags made in Italy, USA and France but Beijing China has a factory commissioned by Chanel, LV, Gucci, Coach and Hernes to do lines that are targeted for certain regions. Did you know that not all bag styles for each designer are sold in the USA? Europe has a lot of wonderful bags we never see here in the USA. Europeans are always a step ahead of us plus we seem to hang onto the older styles we see in celebrity pictures … guess we just want to emulate them.

  • Pat

    Hi Adrienne,

    Not sure if you got your answer but you can use a jewelry polishing cloth or even the cloth that comes with your eyeglasses. Works great!

  • Kendra

    Some of these are good, some not so good. (fb)

  • Naggy

    I have that exact same Chloe Paddy pre-owned and with unsightly wear and tear, and I paid $671 for it!
