    Default Poll - Which Chanel Bag To Get

    Ok ladies (and guys), I decided against the XL Tote, however I found a few Vintage and Used bags that I'm pretty much obsessing over. I'm really having a craving for a new Chanel bag, and have decided against other brands for the moment.

    Here are the bags that I'm currently lusting after - eBay, Let-Trade, etc.


    Beige Caviar Medallion
    $845
    Good condition, no scratches or marks, minimal wear on the corners


    Lambskin Flap
    $585 - no bids, 1.5 days left
    Good condition, no marks or scratches


    Caviar Tote
    $730
    Excellent condition - no marks or scratches


    I originally was going to get a bag around the $600 range, and wasn't looking for a Chanel, but I saw these and totally loved them. So now I'm obsessing about getting a new (to me) Chanel, and changed my budget. I also originally wanted a black bag, but when I saw the Medallion, I didn't care what color it was!

    I'd love to know your opinions, which bag I should get, and which one you think is the best value for what it is.

    I LOVE vintage Chanel so the black lambskin Flap got my vote. (Great price too!) Plus I don't like that "fleshy" color beige of the Medallion.

    I also like the black flap - the medallion tote might be too big for you (as you said in your other thread that you have a hard time filling up your smaller bags) and I always choose vintage flaps over other vintage styles - flaps are always awesome!

    Just make sure you don't mind lambskin and its greater tendency to show wear, scratches, etc.
    Now on a BAN!

    I personally love the medallion, but like pingping said, I think the black flap is perfect for you!

    I feel like the Flap might be too boring for me. I like bags that are different (as you can tell by my collection), and I already have a Tan Flap. So far though it's the lowest priced one, that is if no one bids on it on eBay.

    Then go for the medallion. Even if you don't fill it up, it won't slouch and look empty. The medallion is one of my favorite Chanel bags!

    Haha this is such a hard decision. I like all 3. I don't like the price of the Medallion, but it's a great price for the bag. I like the Flap because it's the least expensive and classic, but very generic. I like the tote because it's so different and I never see it.

    This is why I need all of my girls' help - everyone always gives you a good opinion!

    I personally don't like the tote. The medallion is fabulous and the flap is classic, so you can't go wrong with either one of those!

    I prefer the flap. It's classic. Plus, I don't really care for the skin-colored tote, lol.

    Of course I'm going to put in my 2 cents.
    I would go with the black flap. IF this is your first or one of your first Chanels, I say go with a classic that can be worn in any situation. I have several flaps and wear them for day and night. Black is such a classic color. You can wear it year round without an issue.
    Have you tried Mimiaction? She's on Ebay. I buy all my bags from her. She is 100% authentic only (but I still recommend you get bags authenticated through here or somewhere else just to make sure). Her prices are fabulous to begin with and you can usually email her and get her to come down some. Have her change the BIN to the lower price and then go through Live.com and you can get another 10% off.
    Here is her link. eBay Seller: mimiaction: Clothing, Shoes Accessories, Jewelry Watches items on eBay.com

    Out of the three, the Caviar Tote is my favorite. But if you need a smaller bag, then I would go with the flap.

    I have 3 Chanel bags - a bowler, vintage pochette, and a flap. They're all relatively the same size, and I think I need something a bit bigger in case I ever want to put more in it. I know, I'm a pain... this decision is hard! Haha

    If you already have a flap, then I say go for the 3rd one. Not too keen on beige bags myself
