Hey everyone !! I would have posted this earlier but had a bout with a 24 hour virus early this week (YUK!) and am just recovering. My New Britt Cruise beige/ebony collection tote arrived Tuesday (after ordering from Gucci.com late Sunday night!!) and it is all that I hoped for, love the striped interior lining, it's just perfect for a summer vacation in warm climes. Jill, you are right, LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! the price was right too. From my experience with Gucci.com i would say that they are great, quick, efficient, and courteous. Plus the packing was gorgeous. even the glossy Gucci box was lined with monogram textile! I was supposed to wait for Christmas to open it (YEAH, RIGHT!!) but since I was feeling so sick, my DH opened it up for me, to "cheer me up") He said, "if a new Gucci bag won't make you feel better, then nothing will"
