I was pretty much listening for my cellphone to ring ALL DAY today...waiting for the call to tell me to go pick up my bag, and finally, four hours before our dinner, I got the call! When I was there to pick it up at LV, the SA who was helping me opened the box and showed me the bag briefly, and the boyfriend was with me and all he could say afterwards was "Wow." We went back to his house to get ready for our anniversary dinner, and his mom was there so I showed her my new pochette, and she had acrylic nails and while she was touching and holding the bag, I was just praying to myself, please don't scratch the bag, please don't scratch the bag! Luckily it wasn't scratched and I quickly took it away from her and put it safely back in its dustbag. A little while later, she said "Oh my, that is a beautiful bag! I will call you someday to ask to borrow that bag, and I can tell everyone that my son's girlfriend has better taste than me in handbags!" I was flattered, but I'd never lend my silver pochette to anyone! My boyfriend loves this bag...he asked to see it a few times throughout the night, and he said out of all my bags, this is probably his favourite, and that it was definitely worth $600! He was blinded inside the restaurant with the light reflecting off of it and he thought the bag was simply amazing. So anyways...we had a great night, I was super happy and the dinner was awesome. Our bill came to around $200 but the owner is a friend of one of my managers (my good buddy at work) so he took the desserts off our bill, and our coworkers apparently all pitched in to pay for our dinner and so we only had to pay $60 and so we left the server a $50 tip! We also got free sparkling wine when we arrived and there was a small gift and card for the both of us from everybody at work when we arrived...I love my coworkers. Here are the pics! Amazing reflecting ability! One modeling pic as promised, more in Visual Aids thread: Hahaha, I just HAD to share this pic with you guys!! I look so funny.
