Well I left for NYC on Thursday and arrived in the late afternoon. I had a couple of goals for this trip. 1. find twilly and or pocket sqaure to wrap around my vert anis ostrich handles. 2. Check out any of the new scarves that I just felt that I needed to buy 3. Hope to see a dark neutral birkin/HAC that was for sale. AT this point, all of my bags are very colorful and I just needed to add that one dark bag to round out my collection. At this point my absolute dream bag was a Maroon Fonce Hac 32 in a rigid type of leather. But since beggers can't be chosers, I settled on the idea of a birkin of HAC in dark black, browns, raisin, dark greens etc. The car service picked us up from the airport to bring us to the hotel. I told my friend that I had read on the inventory thread that Wall Street had a black Birkin as of Wednesday night and that I was actually thinking of going by there first. Traffic was horrible so we decided to call the store to see if it was even worth going out of our way. As I predicted, they would not confirm of deny if that birkin was still in the store. I had a hunch that a tpf'er bought it, so I got on the forum via my Iphone and read that indeed the bag was bought by Mme Paix. I was very happy for her. I put off the trip to the new store till the next day. My dreams were somewhat deflated at the idea that they would have another dark birkin/HAC available 2 days in a row . . .
