i've always thought b bags are cool but thought it's too trendy for the money. but now i'm really beginning to like them and are actually considering to purchase one. i would probably go with a city but also think small or twiggy is cute too. i'm 5'2''. now comes the questions: 1. i noticed that there are years next to color names. are there only certain/limited colors per season/year? so if i were to buy at a department store i could only get the color for this particular season? 2. where is the best place to purchase one? (i'm in the bay area) do they ever go on sale? can i get it at Saks and utilize their spend and get money back event? 3. i might be going to germany next year. is it cheaper to get it there? sorry these are such elementary questions but i would really appreciate it if you guys can guide me here! thanks!
