Sweater: Aqua girls cashmere bolero/shrug- size large (similar here)
Dress/Tunic: H & M divided- size 2 (from last Summer)
Boots: Nine West takeout leather flat boots- size 5 (similar here)beige Summer flap which was revealed a little while ago but how on earth could I resist the Bloomie's 20% off sale? I don't live near a Bloomie's that has sells Chanel so I had to call around to see who had what I was looking for. And I quickly realized, that they are all not so friendly even though they work on commission! You'd think they would be extra nice but not the case. (thumbs down) However, I did manage to find a nice lady who was willing to put up with all my questions and concerns. I knew that I didn't need another medium flap or a smaller flap (already have) so I decided on the dark beige PST (Petite Shopper Tote) and lambskin WOC (same as Vicky from VickysFashion).
PetiteLittleGirl if it would be possible for me to ship to her and have her ship to me. I was elated when she said yes!! How awesome is she? She is so super sweet and I am forever grateful to her.
Vest: H & M lace vest- size XS (very similar here)
Shoes: Ann Taylor Perfect Patent Pumps- size 5 (similar here)
Purse: Chanel dark beige PST
Necklace: Peri Cameo pendant
I found the H & M lace vest in XS when I was back in the Midwest and was super excited. You can also see it on Jean from ExtraPetite. She looks amazing in it! I love the vintage-look of this vest is and how it can totally change an outfit like my blue BR sheath dress.PLG said she was leaving town by 3:00! I was sick to my stomach and the package required a signature. So I called to try to re-route the pkg but that didn't work so the only option I had was to hope and pray the package arrived before she left. Unfortunately it didn't. And because of the package content and value, Bloomie's puts a restriction on re-routing. I was left with only one option and that was to have them hold it at a UPS and have Sydney pick it up on Monday when she got back. UPS would only allow her to pick it up at one specific location which was totally out of the way and far for her to drive. I felt so horrible about this. And here's the kicker- I was leaving town Tuesday morn back to the Midwest to see my family and was planning on wearing one of the purses there. Luckily, Sydney was able to pick up the package on Monday night and shipped it out on Tuesday morning straight to my family's house. I wasn't supposed to get it until Thursday but when I was out to lunch with my family, I tracked the package and it said it was being delivered that day and it was only Wednesday!
Dark Beige PST = $1600 plus 20% off = $1280 (NO SALES TAX)
Lambskin black WOC = $1575 plus 20% off = $1260 (NO SALES TAX)
Below is to show you the differences between the two beige colors of my previous Summer flap vs. the dark beige PST.
PetiteLittleGirl, I was able to save over $300 in sales tax! Thank you Sydney! You are THE BEST! What a wonderful community we have. I love that we have each other's backs:)
I do like my black lambskin WOC as well but the ONLY problem I have is that it's made in SPAIN!! All mine are either made in France or Italy (prefer Italy). I called the Chanel boutique where I bought it from and they said that they have been getting a TON of complaints and this is the FIRST time shipment they have had with SPAIN and definitely will be the last. I am definitely exchanging it for SURE. Just have to convince hubby to take me soon because it's super far away.And I don't know if it's just in my head but the lambskin is NOT as soft as it should be! SUSPECT!!! AND guess what else? It doesn't come with a freaking dust bag! You spend $1575 for a tiny purse/wallet on chain and it doesn't even come with a dust bag which probably cost pennies to produce. I was LIVID. Yet the half moon WOC which is $1375 comes with one. WTH or more like WTF? My light beige Summer flap was only $1500 and came with one. Their explanation? Because this is considered a "wallet" and only comes with a piece of felt even though the half moon is also a WOC.
Sorry for the extremely long post...just had to share!! :D
Do you like my new babies? Worth it at 20% off and no sales tax?
