I like them all but can probably only get one right now! Thanks
The Lanvin (way above the rest in 1st place) - it's destined to become a classic and it's not that easy to get (at least not yet). 2nd - the paddington. Phoebe's days are over at Chloe so it's your last chance under her reign and the cream is truly gorgeous.

Thanks for the info about the magnetic quality of patent leather. I had never heard anything about that before!! That's pretty wild.

Ilove - you can never go wrong with a Chanel and patent is always classic, although more "in" at certain times than others. I just recently read in Elle (I think - or Vogue) that patent's popularity is expected to continue for quite some time. I wonder if you can treat it with some kind of leather conditioner to help it repel stains - ask them at Chanel, those SA's are the only ones I have found to be truly and completely knowledgeable (I think they get specific training). I ordered the Fendi b in patent but will probably return for a Chanel (I'm just so curious to see the Fendi IRL!)

Thanks Jan

The Lanvin was always no one for me but wanted to hear everyone else's thoughts too.

i don't know if its celine thats been brainwashing me or not but it doesn't seem too matchy..
i'm thinking of the jessica stam outfit with the blush patent shoes+blush patent belt+ blush clandestine..
and also the tan fendi dress with the wisteria shoulder detail+black bbelt+tan/black bbag+black patent shoes -- which are both perfect perfect outfits

Done with finals, it was all this week. I got a D on my Hon Algebra 2 final, which brings my grade in that class down to a C+ Thats my hardeest class though. I'm hoping the rest were better.

I saw that Lanvin belt in Bazaar, Definaltey go for it! I loved it too but it's too pricey for me. I'd get whichever color you preffer, and either not wear them together or just wear the bbag handheld so the two dont touch. I dont think it's too matchy unless you pair it with white patent shoes. There were some outfits on the fedni runway that had a white belt, bag, dress, and black shoes that were very pretty.

The chanel card says very little on patent, it must've been somewhere else I read about it being especially sensative around patent but I do remember reading it somewhere. Heres what chanel says:

Light colored patent should not be placed adjacent to dark-colored materials (colour migration phenomenon) for long periods of time. Small leather items are especially at risk for such migration.

the more of that chanel card thats revealed, the more knuckleheaded i feel!
"small patent items"
"patent on patent"

well, they're definately not lying.. 'phenomenon' indeed.

gg - i've got my fingers crossed for you!

cagirl - from the pic i'd say teal.. but i think the choco would be nicer irl
