You understand that the medium Chanel flap bag size is something to consider !

What can I fit into my medium Chanel classic flap bag ?
About the medium Chanel flap bag size , I can tell you for sure that you can fit your iphone plus , wallet , your mini agenda , keys and lipstick . The only disadvantage I found on this bag’s capacity is that you can’t fit your make up kit . It’s my only problem . But that’s ok unless you are going to spend the whole day outside and your make up needs to be freshened up . If you wear it for a couple of hours it will be more than fine .
In which colors is the CHANEL classic medium flap bag available ?
Well , again if you are looking for a brand new Chanel medium classic flap bag , you can choose between the classic colors , black and beige . And of course each season’s colors and designs . For example in Chanel runway for ss19 we saw exotic skins , embroideries , tweed , sequins and even shearling .

You can choose between different colors , textiles and designs ! Take a look below to see a variety of second hand chanel medium flap bags .

Chanel medium classic flap bags are available in caviar and lambskin ?
At some point it was rumored that the caviar leather was discontinued but now the Chanel medium classic flap bag is available in both caviar and lambskin .
What’s better , the medium Chanel classic flap bag in lambskin or in caviar leather ?
This is a question everybody asks ! I have seen a lot of youtube videos about this issue and almost everybody claims the same thing . I believe in this too . Caviar is better . If you see videos on youtube from women that own Chanel bags in caviar and in lambskin , you will hear that caviar is more durable , harder to scratch , harder to wrinkle and harder to loose its puffiness .
So , yes if I am going to spend thousands of euros on this bag , I am going to buy the one that will last longer ! So , yes choose caviar ! And below you can see the best second hand Chanel medium flap bags in caviar , take a look ! And hurry , these bags get sold out every day !!!!! Especially if they are on sale!

Is the medium Chanel flap bag heavy ?
Again thinking about the medium Chanel flap bag size , a lot of girls ask this question . And that’s a very good and useful question . I will tell you a story . Every time I wear my Lady Dior bag for hours , I have a back pain . And I’m not telling you this to discourage you from buying this beauty . But you have to know how many hours you will be able to carry it !
Well , my own chanel medium flap bags aren’t heavy at all . The denim one is heavier than the mariniere , especially the denim’s chain is heavier . But you will not have any problem about its weight .But have in your mind that this is a luxury designer bag , so it won’t have the same weight as your cloth shopper . But , don’t worry you will be able to carry this bag all day long .
”Generally the vintage CHANEL medium classic flap bags are heavier than the newest ones ”

Yes , it’s worth it . It’s an iconic design since 1955 . The price increases every year . It’s one of the most desirable bag in the planet . Every girl and woman wants this bag like crazy ! Come on , if this bag isn’t worth the hype then which does ?
And after 70 years it is still a trend and maybe bigger now than it used to be . It’s iconic and classic . It’s not seasonal . If it was a seasonal piece then it wouldn’t worth the hype and the money of course unless you have a super rich sugar daddy or you are a billioner . So , for girls next door like me ;) its an iconic piece , a fashion investment so girls hurry because the prices go higher and higher !
One more thing , if you ever need money (fingers crossed ) , you can sell your classic Chanel medium flap bag and get money immediately . Because everybody wants it . So hurry , you might miss a beautiful and classic addition to your collection !
