    Too delicate. The pearls could fall off with normal wear.

    Megs – This is about as expensive as our SF alligator. This is beautiful, but I fancy the SF more.

    I love this blog, all the informations about beautiful bags are here! :)
    Ladies i really need some help, I’ am from Brazil, and these year i wiil travel to NY, I want too buy 2 or 3 chanel bags, and I was searching,
    and i found an outlet that calls Waterloo, is close to NY, something like 50 minutes by bus (Not sure), and i saw that they sell chanel, I don’t know if they sell the bags, if they sell could you girls tell me if it is a good opportunity, or maybe it’s better to buy directly in the chanel store.
    Thanks very much, and I’m sorry if I wrote something wrong, i’m still improving my languages skills. :)

    I just saw it in a Chanel shop in this afternoon. It was kept in a showcase. I didn’t realise it’s so expensive. I almost asked the SA to let me know a look(!) if the size of the is not that small.
