Dear Chanel, Our love is just not meant to be....

I think every fashion obsessed girl dreams of that one day when she will own her very first Chanel handbag. I think I was being somewhat practical when I said I would only want one to own forever. A Timeless Classic Jumbo in black caviar leather with silver hardware. Well this "goal" has quickly become a love that is simply just not to be.
If the latest Chanel price increases are a preview of what is yet to come, then I can almost be positive that a Chanel handbag will not call my closet home. I already couldn't fathom the idea of spending this much on one bag, but the Jumbo just went from $2650 to $2850! With SoCal tax, that is a grand total of $3128!!!!! If I even had that much to spend at once for shopping, I think I'd have a mild heart attack while paying. Yes I know, the cost of this one gorgeous bag is the same as a few pairs of designer shoes, but for some reason I think my husband can stomach the shoe prices more then the Chanel price. I am forgetting to mention the huge factor, that even if I could buy the bag of all bags, finding it is almost impossible at this point. As mentioned over at Madison Avenue Spy the Chanel inventory is down to nothing. Waitlists have names well into the 100s if not higher.
So my dear Chanel, I will just have to love you from afar. Drool over collections like Purse Addict's. I will dream of what could have been, but then I will look down at my fabulous shoes and remember that my first love was there all along.
Happy Monday guys! (I'd rather be home, but what can we do?) I haven't been out to anywhere exciting in over a month, On the Catwalk posts will return soon I promise!
