This Chanel bag is one of my first and recent purchase from Vestiaire Collective, this is a very rare piece from Chanel, honestly I thought I would never find a chevron Chanel bag, especially in the size of rectangle mini, also its black and with silver hardware. In the past a year or so, I have been in and out of Chanel Boutiques in Toronto. Of course, I have zero luck with a piece like this. I was on the edge of giving up and just purchase one of the most classic piece like The Classic Flap or The Classic Wallet On Chain. But surprised! I came across this rare piece on Vestiaire Collective.

My Experience with Purchasing from Vestiaire Collective
I was previous browsing through VC for a week, until I came across this dreamy rare Chanel piece, because there are new products being put up on VC website everyday. There are so many options to choose from at a reasonable price point.
I ordered this bag and it got to me within a week! The whole process was crazily quick. Being that said, the bag was purchased off one of the top luxury seller on VC. The bag was sent from the seller to VS office, where in the next three days the bag is being under investigated by VS, this is to unsure the product matches with its description and guarantee in authenticity!
After that is done, the product is shipped out to me, please note I paid for duties and taxes at the check out when I was purchasing this bag, so this will help your package arrival more smoothly and faster. I got my bag within two days after being shipped out and no charge at the door!
The bag came and I checked it throughly, it matches with the description very well, the condition of this bag I would say it is a 9/10, but definitely a seasonable condition for the price I purchased it.
My overall first time experience with VC has been amazing, I already have my eyes on a couple rare pieces from VC, I definitely recommend checking it out if you cannot find your dream pieces in stores, you might get lucky at Vestiaire Collective.
