Admitting addiction is the first step, right?

  1. Okay, so this is a story only you crazy bbag folks will apprciate/understand/not run me out of town for.

    Last night, on a whim, I decided to call my local Saks and see, just see if they by some slim chance had started carrying Balenciaga. And guess what?? They DO! Saks here closes at 8. It was 7:43. I kept thinking to myself, "Wait until tomorrow, you can always wait until tomorrow..." but NOOOOO. I jumped in my car and screamed down there just to see them. Sick, right? The DH thinks I've seriously lost it. They were literally pulling down the security doors as I walked in (but I had 7 minutes... I was THAT GIRL).

    Anyway, the sad ending is that they had a very sparse display: black twiggy, purple ponyhair First, and whistle bag:shrugs: I was a little disappointed but still, just knowing they are there and that they're getting "new bags in soon" (per Mary Lou, the SA that pronounced it "Bally-in-kay-a-guh" told me) was enough to make me happy. :tender: Yeah Alabama for finally selling bbags!
  2. Tucker~ you ROCK!!!!!!!!!!:roflmfao: :roflmfao: :roflmfao: That was the best story and I will never forget it! Tell Mary Lou to get the name straight!!!!!!!!!!!!:lol:
  3. Did you pronounce it correctly in front of her, to kind of help her out? Congrats on moving up in the world! Wish western KY would get with the times and start selling them....
  4. I did :yes: I said I learned it from the SAs at the flagship store ;) I didn't want her to feel silly, it is a long word after all!
  5. OMG that is hilarious!
    My BF recently pointed out that if I admit that I have an addiction, it's the first step to recovery. If it were anyone other than me that we were talking about, I would agree with him, but I was suddenly very embarrassed :shame:
    Shouldn't you be able to discuss handbag addiction with someone that you share bodily fluids? :confused1:
  6. That's funny slinks! I mentioned something to my husband the other day about getting a bag and he looked at me and said,"Do you have a problem?". He doesn't understand why I think I need so many.
  7. :roflmfao: Hilarious!

    TTucker, that's good news! If Saks carries Bbags in Alabama, that gives me hope for Atlanta! What a great story.

    Definitely gotta give that girl a gentle pronunciation lesson though.:p
  8. I was showing all three of my bags to my dear friend Carl, and said how excited I was about the SS 07s (with my eye on two). He actually got really serious, put his hand on my shoulder and said "You know, maybe it's time to take that money and spend it on another kind of bag." I said "NO!!!! I don't want another bag, just more of these!!!!" LOL

    My friends are used to my being a very sensible person -- they've never seen me go nuts over something like this before.

    Oh, well, at least B Bags won't make me sick -- like OPIUM or CRACK!!!! -- and there is a resale value. Now that's a smart addiction!
  9. ^^ lol!!! :roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao:
  10. This is such a funny thread:roflmfao: :roflmfao: :roflmfao: still at least you could get a good night sleep knowing you had been to Saks and seen what they had. If you had not have gone you might have spent the night laying in bed wondering
  11. My 5 yr old daughter told me today (as she has told me before) "Mommy, all of your purses looks the same, they all have those string thingies on them." Later, in an unrelated incident, my husband said "I hope those things don't cost very much, you have about 100 of those stringy bags." Then he saw my rouge vif box and said "that thing looks so cheap." OMG...OMG....OMG...if that man only knew......

    do we have an "evil laugh" smiley?
  12. TTucker,
    AMEN to that:roflmfao: :p .... Hi, my name is Chris & I have B bags addiction!:p
  13. TTucker.

    So funny! I can just picture you racing to Saks with minutes to spare.:lol: :lol:
  14. :roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao: I usually end up discussing my addiction with people I don't swap bodily fluids with.

    And TTucker, get your SA to pronounce it right because her pronounciation was so wack. I love how you race down to the mall just to see all those B-bags!! :nuts:
  15. :roflmfao::roflmfao::roflmfao:

    Just imagining you in ya car driving down to Saks. Must be quite a sight :p
