This thread might be a bit 'so last season' but here goes. My BF is in the states at the moment, he was in Saks looking at bags for me (he even took pics on his mobile and sent them to me, very sweet). I told him to look specifically at the Gauffres as i've ben lusting after them on here for months. The SA completely put him off saying the Gauffres were so last season. I know some of you are still buying them, but for the pioneers (Jill - i'm looking at you ) who got them when they first came out, do you still use them, have I missed the boat? Should I instruct my BF to ignore the SA and get one anyway??
