Chanel Chanel Chanel !!!

I have just made my first Chanel buy and I am soo super excited, who would have thought a bag could have such an effect.
It is the Chanel jumbo flap in lambskin , black with gold hardware and it is to die for !!

I was torn between the Chanel 2.55 with the double c clasp or the reissue of Coco's original design"Mademoiselle Lock"

This bag was her ultimate statement. It stood for everything she believed in, that style should be beautiful and practical !! She poured all her own inspirations into it and it is as if it is moulded by the images that dust her magical and mythical legacy.

Every element of the bag tells it's own story , from the chain that represents the noise of the careers keys in the convent where she grew up to the secret compartment where she hid her love letters . Every element of this bag has it's own secrets.

I decided that the double C clasp was the one for me. What do you guys think??? Should it ever have been changed from Coco's original design? Or do we need to reinvent??
