I was waitlisted for the longest time for the Baby Cabas; when I aksed to be listed I'm pretty sure I gave the A number for the small one with classic chain. Anyway when the bag finally got here it was the big one with braided chain. I duly went to the Amsterdam boutique (got a babysitter even LOL) and looked at other things to possibly exchange it for. Candidates were narrowed down to the washed black caviar flap with mm lock and bijou chain, and the black metallic reissue. Thing is, I want an every day bag and I'm not much of a metallic girl, and really apart from looking greyer the washed caviar flap doesn't make that much of a different impression from by black caviar jumbo with silver hardware.Plus the chain is really short, and I much prefer where my caviar hits my body.I was seriously tempted by the washed caviar but it would in all honesty not be adding too much to my wardrobe or my bag repertoire. My SA was unimpressed since I already have the jumbo and a black 226 anniversary reissue. I was unimpressed with Lady Braid (too east-west in the only version that fits the shoulder), Le Marais tote (too bulky on me), and hidden chain. Diamond stitch has too huge a CC logo. So I was all set to just get a pair of the classic black ballet flats in leather with patent tips (I know, I know...I call it lateral thinking) and take store credit. But all the SA's kept saying how great the cabas looks on me despite me being short and round (LOLOL they didn't add that but I do) and they couldn't have been out for the money, because the bags I'd considered would all have come to more than keeping the cabas and adding the shoes. I was in there for TWO HOURS:s:shame: and ended up leaving STILL with Big Baby and having added the ballet flats....LOL. She's growing on me...have taken her on v short trip out of house...jury still out though!! I will post the pics I took quickly a couple of days ago, but I hate all the modelling pics (was wearing ghastly oufit around house and when you are short and round that's not a good look...LOL).So I may have another go on Monday when PHH is at work. After having carried the bag around my house for a couple of days it is already slouching a bit more and getting more of that slightly rounded as opposed to square shape. My head is still spinning...keep? Don't keep?? In the family pic, I'm sorry but the reissue fell over as I snapped and I was too distressed and panicky to do it again...LOL.
