Early Mothers day gift LOL - well by a month but didn't want to miss it since it was available - I got her the MJ Blake in Black with gold hardware -- from Holt Renfrew in Calgary today. They will be shipping it to her in Quebec - I know its early but last time I was visiting her I had her try on a few bags and she loved it .. she's a spry 82 by the way .. and she jokingly said "I'd come out of retirement for this one!" .. I dont think she's paid more than $70 for a purse in her life LOL -- when I told her today I said "you know when you have a nice bag you have to keep your pen caps on or even keep them in a nice case, or your lipstick in a makeup bag" .. she knows I buy high-end bags .. and so she said "why are you telling me this?" and I said "well you have a bag at Holt Renfrew to pick up this week" .. and she knew right away which one it was probably going to be, and just kept saying "your kidding!!" and the rest of the conversation she was mostly saying "OMG I am going to feel like the Queen!!!!" LOL Well that's my story So my Mum gets the first MJ purchase I've made and I'm very pleased she is excited about it, I can't wait to hear back next week from her after the store calls her to pick it up. Hopefully I can have someone take her picture with it for me so I can post it.
