I need to make a decision quick and my sale-queen-panic-lady is kicking in. There is a Betty Satchel on hold for me right now at Neiman Marcus on sale for $742, in the chamois color. My husband thinks if I want the black small Paddy, hold out, and save my money and get the one you want later. The Betty is probably my second choice for style behind the Paddy, and the color is about my second or third choice. But its marked down from $1,800! Thats such a huge savings I might be willing to compromise!! Chaimois (camel) is classic too, right? How low do you think a Paddy will go, if Im patient for the next couple of months and do lots of research? Are after christmas sales really cheapest all year? This will be my staple purse; I just paid off my credit card and only want one special designer perse (for now) I dont expect to become a big collector. HELP! Sale or discipline? Is that a steal to good to pass up?
