Ok, so I've been going all over the place with purse options for the spring. I was REALLY into the B Bag--pre-ordered with eluxury for the shoulder version and am on my local NM's waiting list... Then I saw a green IF that was really pretty. Then I looked at the antique white MJ Stella... Well, then I started really rethinking things... I decided that I REALLY like the BV ball bag--but then what color? I LOVE how "noce" looks on the BV website, but I found out today that the "walnut," "hazelnut," and "tan" that's referenced on Saks and NM's websites are noce--it's just a tan that didn't do too much for me. I don't need any more black. White is beautiful--but not very practical... And I already have a red bag. Chocolate brown is nice, but I wasn't in LOVE. Then I saw that NM had dark orange online!!!! I know that the color went on sale elsewhere, but it wasn't going on sale on line... The NM customer service person told me that there were less than 3 left and they share their inventory with Bergdorf! So I gave in--I ordered the dark orange ball bag--I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited. I can't wait until it arrives. Sorry about all the blabbing--but I think I'm just so excited, especially since I think I bought the last one since it's now off NM and BG's websites! Does anyone have this purse? I'm curious if it has a zipper or not... NM said it was an "open" hobo, but BV's salesperson did not recall there being a ball bag without a zipper. I'm crossing my fingers for a zipper!
