Chanel 2.55 Flap Tote

Before starting my weekend this morning, I took the time to attend Chanel trunk show at the boutique. I didn't really see anything to catch my fancy but I almost brought this little tote home with me.
After seeing this months ago, I fell in adoration with this classic quilted bag. Initially I thought the bag is a classic 2.55 flap bag with chain on the side but this is actually a small tote that looks like a classic flap. The double CC logo is functional and the flap opens to reveal a large zip pocket underneath. It's a darling but the double chains are too short for the shoulder. A gal can only carry this with the hand or on the crook of the arm.
Did I say I really like the patent leather in black or white? I think it's a fun stylish piece. Although I like this tote, I am wondering for $2495, perhaps I should just save up for another classic flap, like the maxi flap (for another $500) I am totally dreaming about for months. So what would you do, save up for a classic flap or buy this fun tote?
