Chanel Makeup Pouch

I Really Did Save Up For A Chanel Bag
I don’t know about you, but I remember my first big ticket item purchase like it was yesterday.  You’ve seen our SAVING FOR A CHANEL makeup pouch, right?  Well, at one point in time I really was saving for a Chanel.  I bought my first Chanel bag when I was in my 5th year of practice at the law firm.   Yes girl, I had a Chanel 2.55 bag fund. People always ask me how I come up with the products we sell and the phrases on them . . . believe it or not, they come from things going on in my life or in those of my friends.
The short version of the story is that I went to the Chanel boutique, chose the black caviar leather 2.55 and then had a full on panic attack. The cost of the bag was more than I'd ever spent on any one item. I was almost sick to my stomach. The poor sales woman didn't quite know what to do. I told her I would be right back and called my boyfriend at the time. By the time he answered the phone I was in tears. Crazy I know.⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀
He knew I'd been saving up for the bag and God bless him, he totally understood my anxiety. As we talked I began to calm down, and as I was standing at the store entrance talking to him he walked in the door. He grabbed my hand and steered me back towards the counter. I made my purchase and he went back to his office and I went back to mine.⁣
The relationship didn't last, but I still have that purse; I use it regularly . . . So girlfriend, if you’re saving up for a Chanel you’re not alone.  Our SAVING FOR A CHANEL pouch is the perfect place to stash that cash until you’re ready to take the plunge.
