Sometimes I spend hours getting lost on the PurseForum. We started the forum in 2005 to have a community where handbag lovers around the world could share everything and anything bag-related. Over the past seven years, the forum has transformed into much more, but I still find myself drawn to reveal threads to see what other members are buying.

A reveal thread recently posted in the Chanel forum immediately stopped me in my tracks. A few months ago, Amanda brought you news of the blinged out Chanel bags for the Bellagio re-opening, and it seems as though one of our members tracked down one of those rare beauties and scooped it up.

On the forum, you can read pursebop‘s entire story about how she tracked down what she deemed the Chanel Sparkle Beauty Bag. The bag goes for a hefty $10,000 and very few were made available for customers; it was a limited edition, after all. A Classic Flap is one thing, but a Strass encrusted Classic Flap takes it to the next level.

I loved ready the story of pursebop finding her holy grail bag and I am even more amazed by the photos. This bag catches sunlight and shines like a beacon. Talk about bag bling! [Click for more photos and info]
