It has been a dream since I know a thing or two (believe I do) about fashion, to one day own my very own Chanel bag. I had my eyes on the mini square flap bag, and knew straight away it would be “the one.” I find it to be the most adorable bag due to its size and remaining true to the iconic Chanel classic flap bag.
I decided to buy it for myself on my birthday, and what a surprise it was to see how hard it was to actually find one! I must have called every single store in the UAE and Europe, sadly to hear that they were sold out of it in every single color. Now I did not want it in just any color. I wanted it to be in black or beige, which proved to be even harder to find. My local store told me that there was a wish list for it, and no definite date of when they would receive it.
I patiently waited and continued my unsuccessful calls. Everything changed on one lovely evening when I went to Dubai Mall for the cinema, I had 30 minutes to spare, so I figured I would dropped by the store to check. Voilà!! They had just received their limited edition camel beige lambskin square mini flap! Ohh it was love at first sight. I have to say that the experience of purchasing a bag at Chanel is totally a “feeling like a princess” moment. I was taken to a small room where I waited for my bag to be wrapped, I was offered a drink and the lovely sales person showed me all the new styles they had just received.
I enjoyed my first Chanel experience so much that I can’t even remember what movie I watched that day.
