A little while ago I had a call from the Saks Dior SA who was hunting down a nice dark-brown medium Gaucho shoulder bag for me. She'd called on Sunday to say she had found one at the Rodeo Drive store in Beverly Hills, but that they couldn't ship it until today. So I expected her call back today to be a confirmation...but it wasn't. Apparently there was some communication mix-up and they don't have one after all. My SA said she tried 4 other stores and nobody has the dark brown, just the red. I like red, but not as much as the chocolatey brown. I was sad. I thought, my next step will be to call the Neiman's in Dallas that Swanky Mama Of Three suggested, so I went to the NM website to look for the store phone number. On a whim, I decided to check and see if they happened to have the bag in stock...and they DO!! I doublechecked, and indeed they have the brown, although the black and ivory are still on backorder until November. Not wanting to take any chances, I ordered it right then - with 2-day delivery. It should arrive Thursday. Yay! My only concern now is about color. The NM website lists the color as "khaki (dark brown)", and the pic is dark brown. But if I look on the eLUX site, they have it in "brown" which is lighter and looks more khaki to me. Weird. I guess I can return it if it turns out to be the light-brown color, right?
