Chanel XXL

Ok i'm just going to pretend i didn't leave this blog high and dry for almost 2 months (gasp!) and go ahead and post an entry like nothing happened :D

Anyways i was browsing through the September issue of Harper's Bazaar Malaysia when i stumbled upon what looked like my black patent reissue in the "You've Got to Have It..." section and I thought, no way would Harper's Bazaar be a year behind, right? Right! After careful reading (and a measuring tape handy) i realized that this was the brand new and highly coveted Chanel XXL which measures a whopping  39cm x 48cm x 10cm !! No seriously, you need to take out your measuring tape and measure for yourself because this baby is heeeuge! 

But if you're like me and you're too lazy to rummage for a tape, a picture is worth a thousand words :D

They didn't name it XXL for nothing! :P I was in the KLCC boutique a few days ago and didn't see it (not exactly a hard thing to miss now is it?) but will definitely call Liza to find out first thing tomorrow. It retails at RM10,550 according to the article, which in my humble opinion is not bad at all for a bag this size! 

The question now is, would you?

Yup true! The new Maxi XL was RM11xxx and it's smaller than this one, but classic lah.. this one is like a main-main piece for the rich :P

honestly? i think it looks hideous. being that oversized makes it lose its class.

Agreed! But i still want to see it IRL first tho, just to get a feel of it! :)

Hmmm if it was a little firmer, like Sof says, maybe it'll be okay. But it does look horribly oversized. You know, like how Katie Holmes looked ridic with her gigantic Birkin? I mean, yes, it's a Birkin but holy crap, that was could've fit 3 Suris in it!

But based on the pictures, it looks a bit... cheap :/ RM10k is a bloody good price, though. Crap! I don't think you can even get the Jumbo for that price, right?
