Anyone had gotten the cheaper version of Chanel GST from Shaly before? If so how is it? She said it made of cowhide though. Hmmm

I suggest that you don't get it from Shaly, get it from Catty

Catty's GST's are better (cheaper and better quality).

If you take care of your bags, they won't get dirty. The beige gst from Catty is the same caviar leather quality as usual. It is not very firm or soft, it's perfect

Hi Zen, sorry for the late reply...was busy at work yesterday. This particular Chanel purse is not that big, it is just a medium size and I still love the size of the gst (which I also have one from Jacky). I just use this purse when I go on shopping or going to church which I don't need to bring with me too much stuffs. For reference, here are pics that I took to give you Zen and other gals an idea how much stuffs it could fit into it.

Here are the stuffs that was inside my purse

check book, stack of prayer books, calculator, two pens, wallet, reading glasses, small cosmetic pouch, small purse for my rosary, small (100ml) body spray, small (50ml) hand lotion, 2 cell phones.

Most of the times, I have to take out my prayer books (my prayers books are already 1.5 inch) and the check book so as not to have it more bulky.

All pics taken by me

Zen, I have the black gst from Jacky, but seeing your beige one from Catty made me want it on my list...but still having some second thoughts because of the price ($300) * sigh * Kinda broke, since I have placed two orders from J this week.

Thanks for the pics of what can fit into the chain around bag. It is too small for my stuff :p

You can get the cheaper gst from Catty, it's not too much of a big difference at all

I have the black gst from J too, and it's a big difference from Catty's.

yes, balenciaga is discontinuing with giant hardware starting with the pre-spring 2012 bags...
all bags will have "giant" hardware that is the same size as the HW on the first/town...

I've always wondered on the quality of her Chanel's since her Google album is so full of them. The Balenciaga bags of hers I would obviously pass, the handles are a dead giveaway. A coworker couldn't see herself paying for T&D and went for Catty, only to give the bag to a friend in the end.
