    After long days of hunting in Tokyo, I finally found it: Chanel mini flap in camel lambskin with GHW! :luv:

    Such a beautiful bag, I am super jealous! I want to splurge so bad on a Chanel but I can never make up my mind.

    Thanks loves! Tokyo was insanely hot but it's still my favorite city in the world. It took me years to decide on which Chanel to get and I never really loved any of the latest issues but after trudging through vintage boutiques after vintage boutiques the past week, my eye fell on this little gem and I immediately knew that this was PERFECT. Sure, I have to eat grass and drink rainwater for the next couple of months, but for Coco it's all worth it.

    Very lovely! I love the camel colour. What colour is it inside?

    I actually love Japan for its second hand luxury goods market and buy from Rakuten on the regular because 1) they have a huge turnover of beautiful things and 2) their federal laws and checks against counterfeiting are so stringent.

    Glad you had fun in Tokyo, I've always been dying to go to Japan!

    It's a classic so it's the same colour inside as it is on the outside, but with the giant interlocking CC embroidered.

    Japan is one of the best places to get beautiful vintage bags at good prices because 1) they take very good care of their possessions and 2) during the economic bubble in the 80s and 90s, Japanese women bought a shitload of luxury bags, which they are now selling off, so because there's such a huge supply of 80s/90s vintages, the prices are very, very reasonable.
