My first Chanel!

January 23, 2013 in Commercial Break

If you read me long enough you’d know that i’ve never ever owned a branded bag (the most expensive bag i’ve ever bought myself was a Samantha Thavasa on discount, then i sold it promptly because i felt so guilty wtf), partly because i am more of a street-style person and less a high-end lover, then mostly because i feel very heartache to spend so much my hard earn cash on something i’d get bored in less than 2 months. Thirdly because Malaysia a lot of snatch thieves wtf.

Unless it’s a gift then different story la. But then my kareshi/danna is also not the present a Hermes to his love kind of guy, so. T___T

BUT i got myself the first Chanel ever! From a vintage shop in Tokyo. (And then i felt guilty for about 2 months now and i’m thinking of selling it already WTF)

Remember??

I was asking you all on Instagram which one to get and i got like 150 comments, which is the most responsive IG post ever.

Thank you all for confusing me and not helping me to make a choice hahahaah. The vote was almost 50/50 so i took the golden advice from the danna and got the blue one in the end lol.

The reason why i got it was because (actually all excuses)

1. It’s highly dangerous to shop in Japan because the staff are so ultra nice and persuasive it’s like hypnosis and after you walk out from the shop you’re like “WTF HAVE I DONE

2. Junna, the shop owner is my blog reader and she gave me a big discount.

3. I went a little overboard wanting to give myself a wedding gift.

4. Vintage/second hand culture is so strong in Japan i also got influenced a little. It never occurred to me to buy a pre-loved luxury bag in Malaysia.

The whole branded scene in Japan is so different, i love it because it is truly for fashion sake and not so much status and glamor (Polo shirt and jeans with a glaring Monogram, sorry i really cannot agree.). And i started to change my opinion on branded culture a little.

    Shop owner is yr blog reader.nStaffs are good in persuading customers to buy bags.nnWhoa, Japan is a wonderful country with wonderful people.nPerhaps someday, you can share with us their wonderful tips on persuading customers:)nnhttp://jojomei.blogspot.com/n

  3. I also have trouble buying big brand stuff, but then I realised that you have to believe you’re worth it- especially when you love the item. I like having the goal of getting something I know will be quality.

  4. hannamarielei says:

    The bag is so pretty

  5. Your bag is cute but I couldn’t afford designer purse. Valentines day is a good idea though….

  6. Cheesie is pretty as always!nmuch loveee~nnhttp://anastasiamichelleputri.blogspot.com/

  7. love the blue!!.. hehe if you ever decide to sell, i’ll be happy to take it over!

  8. I share your love affair with Japan. However, I’d take issue with the claim that they’re somehow above wearing branded items for status and glamour. That wasn’t my experience whilst living there, but maybe that was because I had arrived from Britain – admittedly, we’re not as fashionable or stylish in general as the Japanese. It was during this period I developed a particular hatred for Louis Vuitton, as its ubiquitous popularity at the time seemed solely based on a Japanese sense of conformity.

  9. Hello, I had the same thought many years ago, but if you have been to Japan recently there’s a big chance in the mindset , or at least that’s what I feel.

  10. I am!! You can email me at cheeserland@gmail.com

  11. Hihi! Would like to know where’s the shop in tokyo. Want to get a vintage Chanel classic flap!

  12. Yes, sadly I haven’t been back since 2009, and I know trends can change fast out there. What I would also add, generally speaking, is that I found most Japanese are less crass/ more sophisticated in how they wear branded items, and perhaps that’s what you originally alluded to :)
