Hi I am stars, an American expat living in London. I don't contribute too much, mostly read. Up until now I didn't own any b-bags to talk about... However.....that changed one week ago! Why did I wait until today to tell you? Because I was not sure which bag would be mine...... I went to a special sale night at Harvey Nichols where at the register you were able to pick a paper out of a box and get either 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% or 50% off. Oh how I was hoping for a 50%!!!! I knew I wanted a lilac but I was not sure whether I wanted a first or a city. I wound up getting both - but I only got 10% off. Over the past week I have debated all of the pros and cons of each size, b/c my husband did not want me to keep both - especially as they were the same color. Yesterday I finally settled on the first and took the city back to Harvey Nicks. Hubby and I agreed I could get a city next spring (I don't like the fall/winter colours) when new colours come out. Unless of course I can find a city on big sale - then I will get it sooner! But what is the chance of that? I would love an origan city! In case anyone in the US is jealous of my 10% discount....don't be....at today's exchange rate even with the discount I paid more than I would have for retail in the US. That was the other reason I didn't keep both bags - I am better off buying a bbag on a trip back to the US or from the Paris store than buying it here at a 10% discount! Anyway, not to make this post any longer, but yesterday I took my first first (ha!) out for it's first spin! Yay!! I haven't taken pictures yet, but I will, soon!
