So I've been going back and forth on the whole large Veneta vs. Sloane issue....and had pretty much made up my mind to go with a Veneta. I was also wavering between Nero and Ebano because I wanted something versatile....and had pretty much made up my mind to go with Nero. I pondered just driving to the boutique this weekend to get it, but I figured I'd do some hunting to see if I could save a little cash. I went to my Bloomie's on Saturday hoping they had one, since they were giving 20% off anything if you opened a charge, but they only had the maxi in Nero. I went to two TJ Maxx's on a whim (the 2 near me have Runway sections and have BV on occasion). Then I went looking around online to see if I could come up with one in great condition...Ann's, Yoogi's, Malleries... AND THEN IT HAPPENED... . . . . . I SAW AN OTTONE SLOANE Malleries HAD one (it's already been sold). I THINK I HAVE TO HAVE THIS!!! I looked around, but couldn't find another currently for sale....will this be an impossible task??
