Oops, I Did it Again - I Think I Need Help!!

  1. So Xmas is the time of giving, right? There's nothing wrong with giving yourself a little something, is there? Well, I did it again - I was out Xmas shopping & ended up buying myself another Xmas present!! I couldn't help it - I was at the Nordstrom Rack and they had a bunch of MJ bags just hanging there. I could actually hear them calling my name!!

    They had a ton of Irina bags - red, brown, tan, ivory & green - in various styles (the hobo, satchel, tote, bowler). They had these oversized hobo bags (which, if they didn't have "bucket" bottoms, I would have liked!) - then hanging off to the side, they had three Diane bags in Cocoa.

    Now, when I saw the Deborah bag this summer, I fell in love. I watched for it to go on sale, but never caught it. I would have loved a gray one!! I still remember how soft the leather was. Well, Diane is Deborah's "sister." It's a little larger than the Deborah - it has 3 sections. Two that zip and one open. It has an inner pouch pocket & two more pockets on the outside that have cute little padlock zipper pulls. The best part.....it has a gold plated nameplate (Yea! no gold stencil lettering!!!) and.....SUEDE LINING!!!! The leather is buttery soft. It just melts in your hands. :drool:

    There was no way I could resist!! At $529, I knew I wouldn't find a better price (that is, IF I could find it somewhere else!). So I debated and decided - WTH! - I deserve it!! Plus, I ended up getting my daughter's gift for almost half what I thought I was going to have to pay (Thx to BlueFly's "12 Days of Xmas Specials" & TPF's d/c codes) and I saved $$ on my granddaughter's gifts w/a sale at FAO Schwarz. I've been away from MJ for a while now and this is the 3rd one I've bought this month (4th if you count the ZC) I bought the Silvana from Nordstroms (40%), a Baby Stam from eBay ($425) & now this one! I think that's it for now. I must restrain myself!!! :yes:

    The batteries are dead in my camera so I can't take a pic for you, but this is the exact same bag. Same color & style - the only difference is that this one looks a little more "pebbly" and textured. The leather on my bag is soft & smooth (like a baby's bottom) & the bag is really squishy (the other two were more like this, but I liked the softness of mine!):

    But that's it - I can't buy anymore bags for me until the NY (or at least until the after Xmas sales start!!!);)
