A black Chanel caviar leather bag was a dream dream dream bag of mine. It was not just the name Chanel but the quality behind the name. I wanted a bag that could stand the test of time and the wear and tear that I give to the bags I use everyday for work and travel. I don't know about you, but the price tag of a Chanel scared me to death. In fact, I have never bought a "new" Chanel bag - I have always bought them pre-loved. If you have yet to find your favorite Chanel or just don't want to stomach the Chanel price tag, I found nine great quality, real leather, quilted bags in classic styles that can stand up to any road test.
