My Devastating Chanel Story with a Twist

Miss CinderLego traveled to Dallas with me to witness the well-known Mr. Lagerfeld receiving an award from Neiman Marcus at its flagship retailer in Dallas. She additionally received PurseBop’s Chanel Championship” modeled after the Remaining 4 school hoops tourney (definately my actually artistic days of running a blog).

She continued to be my go-to choose for an evening out in town. At the very least she was… till one GNO (that’s Lady’s Evening Out) a number of winters in the past.

Naturally, alcohol was concerned, at the very least tangentially. We (the gal friends) had completed a much-belated birthday celebration dinner and have been having fun with some after-dinner cognac on the bar. Though I often put on the bag crossbody, for some unknown cause, I positioned my beloved CinderLego atop my coat on the bar desk. After I grabbed my coat to go away, the bag tumbled to the ground and one nook utterly shattered into items. I used to be in shock and completely crushed. I gathered the items, as many as I probably may. Sadly I didn’t doc the episode with any images (understandably). 

Miss CinderLego is resin-made and Chanel clearly warns that it can’t be repaired. I knew proper there after which that it was sport over. I had ruined some of the coveted items from my Chanel assortment. 

A go to to the Chanel boutique (5 and a half years after her buy), with bag, field, receipt in hand, solely confirmed that resin couldn’t be repaired. Nonetheless, they despatched Miss CinderLego to Paris. Not one to go away any Chanel bag to probability (not to mention Miss CinderLego), I additionally wrote a heartfelt letter to Chanel to accompany the glowing treasure, explaining how vital this bag is to me and her particular place with my readers right here on the weblog. 

Seven or eight months handed with none information. The service crew at my native boutique solely knew that it was nonetheless in Paris. They weren’t optimistic there could be a optimistic consequence because the destiny of those damaged resin baggage was overtly identified.

Then… lastly… in September of 2019 I obtained a voice mail message that the bag was on its manner again from Paris and I’d be notified of it’s arrival in Chicago. It arrived to the shop the following week. Nobody knew what to anticipate. Nobody had opened the sealed field till I arrived. 

On the boutique, the second arrived. They opened the field. Magically, Miss CinderLego appeared in good situation. In reality, it seemed to be a model new piece… though nobody formally may verify that. It was pristine, not a scratch, not even a finger print. 

A collective sigh of reduction was breathed by all.
