Gold metallic flap w/ black lace in m/l!
I think this was from S/S 2010 Act 1 or possibly Act 2, quite honestly I'm not entirely sure. I had seen this bag at Neiman Marcus literally MONTHS ago and had mentioned in passing to the hubs how pretty it was. He remembered this WHOLE time!!!!! He literally searched and called dozens of places and had our Neiman Marcus SA call dozens of places to hunt this bag down. The SA said this was literally the last one in the entire company.
My hubby is the bestest :)
I'm totally obsessed with anything shiny/sparkly/glossy/lacy.. you get the picture. The bag is made out of goatskin with a metallic overlay. The gold is actually quite reflective in real life. You can kind of see my fleshy pink skin staring back at you if you look at the middle of the flap. LOL. It's not sparkly or glittery and it's not a patent leather bag either. The black lace actually seems to be steamed or ironed onto the flap. I actually thought it was a loose lace overlay but I tried to pick at it and it seems to be sealed on. HAHA. Don't tell the hubs.
The tradition back pocket Coco Chanel designed specifically for cab fare and opera tickets.
The gold hardware on this flap is different then on the classic jumbo black flap w/ ghw which is a shiner glossier gold, this one is more of a brushed matte gold.
YAY and it's made in France :)! Woot! All of my Chanel babies are made in France with the exception of my classic jumbo black flap w/ ghw which is made in Italy. Which is fine because surprisingly jumbo black flaps w/ ghw are difficult to come by these days because the demand is so high. I've heard there's a 2 month waiting list in NYC... craziness!
I really appreciate that the inner flap is lined with the same gold metallic and lace cloth.

Well that's it folks I hope you enjoyed my little Chanel Valentine's reveal! :)
