It seems Chanel has rereleased Blue Boy! Initially part of the 2011 limited edition collection Les Jeans de Chanel, Blue Boy is popping up at counters in a display with the newly launched Rogue Allure glosses. I actually spotted Blue Boy at a Chanel counter in Bloomingdales last week and thought I had simply gotten lucky. But I've spotted Blue Boy at the Chanel counters in Saks and Bergdorf since then which made me realize it was a repromote. The feeling of having found a rare item has sadly disappeared(you know the feeling I'm taking about) but I'm okay with it.
I missed out on Blue Boy the first time around but it never really bothered me. Until I watched meejmuse's NYC haul video last month. I've been lemming for it since then, but was reluctant to pay the marked up prices on eBay. In fact, Blue Boy is actually $2 less than the original $29 price tag. So I've really lucked out this time! Funny how things work out isn't it?
