I fell in love with this bag last summer when my boyfriend and I went on vaca to Vegas-- this girl in the elevator of the hotel we were staying at had it and I fell in looooooveeeee. I'm a weirdo and saved this off the Gucci website last year and stuck it on my computer somewhere, I was able to search for it and find it: I own the beige one, I bought it off eBay though. I sometimes wonder if I could have gotten another one that wasn't as used... it was taken care of very well but it was just obviously used as an every-day bag. No scratches, just that you know it's been used a lot. Anyway, so this bag I am almost sure was from last fall of '06. Is there any way to get my hands on it but brand new straight through Gucci? Is that too long ago to be able to do that? I see it on eBay once every couple of months but for close to retail price which makes me wish I could just buy it new, plus it is just such a favorite of mine I would love to own it new. What do I have to do, is it possible or is that style too old for Gucci to have anywhere? How does that work? I know I have read threads from people getting bags through Gucci from the boutique many states away... but how long is too long to be able to expect to get your hands on a bag? Thanks for any help!
