As my style started to develop in high school and my taste for luxury fashion started to grow stronger, Chanel became one of the top brands on my wishlist.
Everything about the high-end fashion house communicated luxury and elegance while maintaining a sense of youthfulness.
Over the years, I’ve been able to experience some of the magic through their beauty products but recently, I finally decided to treat myself to my first purchase from the Chanel boutique.
TIP: If you have a credit card with a luxury department store, I recommend finding one with a Chanel boutique inside to maximize your reward points.
When I arrived, the SA showed me all of the available cardholders and although they were out of the Black Classic Card Holder with Grained Calfskin & Gold-Tone Metal that I had originally wanted, they did have it in beige.
The sales advisor let me know that the beige Chanel Card Holder color isn’t usually in stock but they frequently receive shipments of the black one. After looking at a few other options, I went with the beige caviar cardholder with gold-tone metal.
My SA created a profile, wrapped up my purchase, and also threw in an extra paper camellia flower used in their gift wrapping. I’m happy to say that my first experience shopping in a Chanel boutique was a very positive one.
I won’t be purchasing a handbag from the French fashion house anytime soon given the latest price increase but I am loving my cardholder so far and can see this being the first of many Chanel SLGs in my collection.
