Went back to Palo Alto today. Went to trade in my chanel sunnies for another. Then, I thought I'd stop at LV (I heard the red epi Alma call my name) Kevin, my SA was there. I was looking at the red epi speedy and Alma. Honu, one of the pf'ers was there also. She was picking up a bag for her mother . She liked the alma also and do did a couple of the SA's there who were helping me.I decided on the Alma. Love the shape. The color is gorgeous and it has the silver hardware. I red right now. I bought a dark red chanel east/west in Hawaii a few weeks ago and returned it. I was not loving the almost burgundy color. Wanted a nice lipstick red and the red epi Alma just satisfied my craving, yay . I wasn't sure if dh will like the alma since he did not like it when I showed him the damier alma in Hawaii. But, surprise, dh likes it. He loves the red. He says that it goes with the patent leather red shoes I bought yesterday (yes, I was on a shopping binge also yesterday, bought a few things, but we'll talk about that later, hee hee). He was right, I forgot about those shoes. What a sweetheart dh is . So he volunteers to take pics so I can post it. Awww, the pics are not coming out. I'll post pics in few mins.
