Finally after 8 long excruciating months my special made for me flap is here!
The packaging *DROOL* these special white boxes with Chanel printed in black is only available when you purchase Chanel items in Paris. If you purchase something from Chanel anywhere else in the world the boxes are black with white words. Since this was a custom order it was sent to me straight from Paris hence the white box :)
Chanel actually brought in a whole team from Paris to San Francisco to specifically package this special order! Talk about fancy schmancy! hahaha
The special white boxes actually sit on a thick black platform.
Single white Camellia
And underneath another layer w/ a single white Camellia
The flap is totally wrapped and taped up in multiple layers of Chanel tissue.
Chanel Jumbo Gold Metallic Lambskin Flap w/ Gold Hardware
I had to wait a long agonizing 8 months for this flap and since we customized our flap we didn't actually get to see a finalized product. I was really stressing whether or not I made the right choice choosing gold metallic and then I stressed about whether I made the right choice about choosing gold hardware. Then I started doubting myself that maybe I should have chosen metallic silver hardware to go with the gold metallic color.. and then I thought no maybe I should have chosen a metallic silver flap.. and then I thought maybe I should have chosen a purple flap.. or perhaps a blue flap...
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you get the picture. :p
I AM SO HAPPY I WENT WITH GOLD W/ GHW!!
The bag can be worn multiple ways just with a single chain, double chain or cross bodied.
The super exciting part of this whole process is that they actually imprinted my initials in gold onto the bag! hehehe Lisa is my middle name ;)
The hubs and I actually both share the initials L. P. so it's like the bag is already a family heirloom piece. I seriously hope we have at least one daughter hahahaha otherwise I'll be screwed :p
The hubs says my flap looks like a giant gold bar hahaha.
The metallic bag is made out of lambskin leather with a metallic coating on top.
WHAT? DID I READ THAT RIGHT?! OHH EMM GEE!
For whatever reason getting something for free is SO gratifying AHAHAHAHA.
Chanel included this gorgeous card holder made with the same gold metallic lambskin leather and gold hardware to accompany my bag.
I was so excited about the card holder hahaha maybe even slightly more excited than my flap.
The little card holder even has it's own serial number and ID card! bahahahaha
There's 4 slots for cards and the middle one is larger which I one could use for dollar bills & coins.
My lovely gold duo :)
