the 2.55 payment plan.
Now that I am working a big girl job, I decided it would be the right time to start saving up for my very own Chanel 2.55 handbag, the ultimate classic. I devised what I thought to be the perfect payment plan and according to my calculations, I would have a bag in about a year. AND THEN THIS HAPPENS:
“European Chanel experts” tell Madison Avenue Spy that the price of classic style Chanel bags just went up 20 percent on the Continent. A price hike on Chanel purses is rumored to occur here on August 1. In 2008, the Reissue bag that now costs $3,600 cost only (only!) $2,850. Come August 1, the price could go up to $4,100. Madison Avenue Spy notes, “Remember, price hikes are always rumored and your stockpile of Chanel bags will not sustain you during a nuclear explosion.” [via The Cut]
Whyyyyyyy?! Okay, I wasn’t planning on purchasing the Reissue bag, but still. If this is going to happen, it means I have to get back to the payment plan drawing board. At this rate, I will have a bag when I am 30.
Note: I disagree and believe that stockpiling Chanel bags would indeed sustain oneself during nuclear expolision.
