Congratulations! The prices keep going up for Chanel so it’s good that you finally made the plunge!

I definitely paid a premium for that color

Beautiful! 🖤 Where did your order it from? Do you have an SA at a Chanel boutique or is this from another retailer? I’m on the market for something similar.

I would recommend Chanel in Bloomingdale’s in NYC. If they don’t have it, they’ll do a search and order it for you if it’s at another location in the U.S.
