The other day at Chanel, I was super flattered by my SA. Apparently she was amazed at the condition of this 12-year-old Chanel camera bag. She asked other sales to check out my brand new looking vintage bag. According to them, they wish all Chanel bags will be in this condition. As Chanel repairs/refurbishes bags for clients (for a fee), some really sad looking bags came back for badly needed TLC. I am currently trying to borrow-to-own this camera bag from Savvy Mom because the same SA also told me similar camera bags now retail for about $2400 ~ $2700 (for the larger size). See, when a gal invests in classic pieces, she can use it and be happy for a long time.
Growing up, my mom didn't have an issue with us girls buying designers bags in moderation. However, one thing she asked of Savvy Sis and me was to appreciate and take care of our investment pieces. I made mistakes in the past with bag care and ruined a bag or two. They were expensive lessons. Now, I do my best for bag longevity as retail prices grow exponentially. This is what I do to care for my bags. Are you extra careful with your investment pieces and how do you care for your bag babies?
