1. Hello Chanel lovers! I purchased the pochette recently and it was WAY too small for me and I'm trying to decide between the medium and the large reissue camera bag, but can't find a "what fits inside" post on here or eBay. I also want to make sure the bag has a continuous loop chain so I can wear it cross body or over my arm and I'm not sure how to tell. I really want the exact one Reese Witherspoon carries. I am not sure if it's Gunmetal or Gray. I have found both on RealReal but want to make sure I buy the right one as they aren't returnable. Any help is appreciated!!

  2. I think my camera bag is the same one Reese is carrying in your photo. Mine is from 08A if that helps, with the color name Gray. It has a continuous chain, but I cannot comfortably wear mine cross-body, the chain is too short (I’m 5’6 and size 4 for reference). I don’t have a What Fits photo, but I can easily fit my compact wallet, an LV pochette, sunglasses, an inhaler, pen, keys, and a small notebook, with room to spare. It’s about 11 inches long and because of its shape, fits more than a Reissue 226 and probably as much or more than a 227.

    I do wish the chain was long enough to wear cross-body, but aside from that, it’s a favorite bag of mine for when I want to feel low-key and a flap feels like too much work. It’s calfskin so super durable as well. HTH.

  3. Yes! That’s the exact one I want and thank you for your sizing description. I am only 5’1” so I may be able to do cross body. Do you recommend anyone / place to source one? The ones on RealReal are beat up and I am not sure how to find an authentic one on eBay.
     
  4. I got mine years ago and don’t remember who the seller was. Now, I pretty much only buy preloved from Fashionphile, Yoogis or Ann’s Fabulous Finds. They have good reputations and — very important to me —return policies in case the item arrives and it’s not what I expected. Also, always authenticate here — even reputable sellers are human beings who can make mistakes.
     
  5. Thanks for the tips, I'll check those out. I'm determined to find one!
     
  6. Agree with catsinthebag, - better to purchase from Fashionphile, Yoggi's Closet or Ann's Fabulous Finds since you want to wear it crossbody and can't go into a boutique to try it on...

  8. Thank you for the recommendations! I have found a few large ones but no medium yet.
     
  9. the new ones - the chain isn’t continuous so you can’t wear it crossbody. I’m guessing they want to differentiate it from the mini version released that can only be carried crossbody. so you’ll definitely have to find an old one!

  10. Good to know! I found an old one that is a little beat up, so I went ahead and bought it and am so excited!!! Thank you so much for all of your help!
