Thanks IceEarl, Vancleef fan, miyake0214, rains, loveaddict, love_jos, birkel & tae. I absolutely adore this bag. And it smells heavenly too.
Yes Birkel, there is always hope. In fact The SA shown me 2 birkins for me to choose from. The other birkin that she has shown me was a 35 black Togo in GHW. But I chose 40 over the 35 as 35 looks small on me. Maybe it is due to its color? Moreover I prefer PHW over GHW.
Yes, immediately after I decided on my choice and waiting for payment, another lady came over to ask me how I managed to get the birkin and told me that she was interested in the 35 black with GHW. So I told her that I would help her to ask the SA but the SA said she would have to call the person who has put in SO if she is letting go of the bag before she can sell it to other customer.
