A little pre-bday/pre-vacay shopping! w/pics

  1. I hit up the Chevy Chase, MD (about 1 block outside Washington DC really) Vuitton boutique today to get some stuff for my vacay starting Friday. I didn't get my Olav yet because I was debating other bags (of the Geant and Taiga lines).

    I saw one Innsbruck Cabas remaining at the store, and I would have bought it BUT...it definitely looked like a well-used return. You know how it looks all nice and square in the pictures? This one had a permanent SLOUCH to it...which is nice in bags that aren't meant to be rectangular...

    I also put my name down on the wait-list for the Soana Sacoche GM (I thought these were out already?? I bet they have one at the 5th Ave store in Manhattan). Anyway my SA told me that there are 8 >>>that's EIGHT<<< in the country.

    Oh yeah. I have my own SA! This was my third time in this store...I generally don't like to window shop...and the other times I went in the SA's weren't too friendly...they were cordial...just a little distant. She was so nice and helpful, her name is Alexa, I really recommend her. And actually, one of the SA's who I remembered being particularly curt to me previously, smiled at me :rolleyes: ...maybe she realized that I'm a "buyer" not a "looker".

    A few more things. SA told me that Damier Azur is permanent...I didn't know this. The Chevy Chase store has QUITE a few items in BOTH Damier Azur and Vernis Pomme d'Amour, so call if you're looking. SA's face lit up like a christmas tree when I mentioned Groom, I think they're selling through it so call quickly if you are interested in that.

    I'm too long-winded, lol. I got:
    -Mono Groom Zippy Organizer
    -Red Epi Pocket Organizer
    -Mono Business Card Holder (I'll call this the "Meishi-Ginko" since I'm about to be a Tokyoite for 8 days, but I really got it to put cards in at home that I don't need in my wallet.)
    -Mono Multicoloure Black Astropill (too cute!)

  10. awesome purchase!! congrats :yahoo:
     
  11. Yeah I wasn't attracted to this style initially, but when travelling I tend to loose things so I really need a place to keep Passport, cards, e-ticket printout, hotel res. printout, other documents, etc. together so I don't loose anything. Even better that it's LE.

    Zippy Organizer is BIG though, I think the Zippy Wallet is a more hand-holdable size.
