hi everyone. I don't know if anyone will remember me - i used to post a bunch in the spring, but got too busy so I haven't been on in a while. anyway....my DH blew me away on Friday night by surprising me with a TDF marron make-up clutch. he rarely ever gets me surprise gifts, but i have to say, the few times he has surprised me he has done well! he knew that i wanted a small 'going out' sort of bag, and he also knew i wanted black. what i was really jonesing for was a shoulder, but DH does not know style names. he asked the SA at Selfridges about one 'this size' (referring to makeup) with a handle sort of thing and she told him there was no such thing. i haven't used the bag yet (such self control!) b/c if I can find a shoulder I will return. I am also back and forth on whether I'd rather have black. they didn't have black at Selfridges. i am not a brown person, but the leather on this bag is TDF!!!! anyway, popped into Harvey Nics yesterday and the SA there told me they haven't gotten any shoulders in since Spring '06 and she wasn't sure if they'd get any in with the new Spring '07 stuff. What is the deal with the shoulder? has it been discontinued? why is it so hard to find? any ideas for me for where else to look? has anyone seen a shoulder recently?
