Hey Tpfers, I am in NYC and boy did I FALL In love with the Astrakan. My name was on the list and then I just passed cause the pictures DID not do ANY justice. Wait till I get home and snap a couple of pics on my iphone and will share them with everyone!! I also managed to grab a Les Marais Flap in gold. So I am really excited that I FOUND this baby. It's lambskin but you can't tell cause it's treated and so it feels tough. I also bought a pair of black patent Manolo's. Yes I am on a deadly shopping spree before it hits fall. My new reissue has been sandwiched so much that it's sagging at the bottom. I paid so much for this bag and it's going soft on me. I try to tell myself that it adds character. Oh well. Justifying that my money was well spent? FAVOR TO ASK: My aunt just moved from London to New Jersey and would like a SA either in NYC or in NJ. She is extremely picky and does not like to be pushed into buying. But once she sees something she likes, she will grab the same one in all the colors. So I need a patient and nice SA that keeps her up to date on events, and so forth. If anyone knows an SA who is patient and able to help her out, then please send them my way. Thanks everyone in advance!!! p.s: I have to post pics of my Astrakan and Le Marais!!!!
