:shame: First I must apologize for having so many different threads going today! But I thought whomever is on the waitlist at Bal, NY for a Violet City with regular hardware would want to know they a starting to come in. It's really just a heads up post, so no biggie if you are sick of me, and don't want to post a response! I got a call this morning (sorry I do not recall the SA's name, but she was making the call for Daphne), letting me know that my City was in. I called back and Daphne answered the phone and I could tell immediately they were super super busy. Despite being so busy Daphne was incredibly sweet and helpful, taking the time to answer my questions regarding the bag and leather. Even though I live in Southern CA, I am pretty sure the bags I have gotten from them before came pretty quickly. Just keep your fingers crossed for me, because I have only purchased two bags direct (a FB Matelasse and FB Shoulder) and both were returned. So in essence this bag will be the first Bbag I have where I will be the original owner, and if I fall in love with it, a Violet First will be next!!! So get ready RH Violet City gals, your bag will be coming soon!!!
