oh my MJ, ladies....it was a sight to see! as eisse told me, the NM last call in milpitas (SF bay area for those of you that aren't local) opened today....i just had to run down & see what was there. and it was crazy! sophias, MPs and venetias as far as the eye could see! the only down side was that they didn't have any of the usual 20%/30%/35% off...so they were pretty expensive (for an outlet price). the sophias were $610, for example....hard to swallow, except that they had a lot of rare colors (see below) so, i'm attaching pics of the displays...i didn't get all of them. but here's what i remember: tons of small MPs - in emerald from '04, sap green, tomato, and a bright lime green (don't know the color name). no large MPs. lots of sophias - dark indigo, peacock, washed rose, spearmint...lots of hard-to-find colors. venetias - tapioca, a neutral tan color, spearmint, and a dark pink, i believe. one passionfruit selma (small) one white perf line tote several totes that had the side pockets like a MP, but were just smooth leather on the front & back. one gold cammie, and several other gold bags, including a long skinny bag with 2 handles...the name "daria" sounds familiar, but i could be wrong. lots of "mystery" MJ bags that must have been from many seasons ago. i attached a pic of one that had me especially stumped...any ideas? bag.lover?? the color looks metallic, but was actually a dark, forest green type color. if anyone wants to call & order, 408-941-1623. ashley was the woman who helped me, and she was fabulous. she's actually the lead in the men's department, but she was super helpful...and the men's department is probably the only one slow enough this weekend to actually send out a bag - the handbag salespeople were seriously mobbed! PS: for those who bought selmas from the NY sale, they have the exact same taupe selmas at Saks off 5th in milpitas for $660 (lg) and $610. even my DH was impressed that we got such a deal!
