I was in Macy's Monday and saw a hologram tote, backpack, and a small handbag. Very pretty.
Ohhhh - I see my problem. When I typed in my email the first time it said 'did not find your name on our list' and I assumed the screen that popped up was a 'try again' screen, not a 'register here' screen. heh. I can read good. Now I'm registered to be added on The List.
I received a Market Tote from the Macy's sale today. It was shipped perfectly, still in original packaging and appropriate padding etc. I was surprised because Macys has done a poor job of shipping to me in the past. I figured since it's so late in the season it would be an ugly color or more likely a customer return, but nope it was pristine. The bag is really beautiful, even though it's larger than what I usually carry I think it's a keeper. Definitely needs an organizer in it for some structure but that won't be hard to find.
I like the unique colors of these bags. I don't think they photograph as nicely as they are in real life. I liken the colors to my black opal ring - it looks so completely different in different lights.
I totally agree! The reason I passed on it initially is that it's a tote (which I don't really use anymore) and it was larger than my previous totes, but I just couldn't pass it up since I'm in love with the leather and the colors. I also agree that it needs an organizer because I don't like floppy bags and I'm concerned about the corners caving in causing it to lose structure. I had a Divide and Conquer organizer from another bag that I tried with the tote and it fit pretty well, but I noticed that it seemed to leave indentations in the leather, which I didn't love. I might try ordering the tall versionto see if that helps because I think my current organizer hits just where the handles attach so it makes it cave in there and cause the indentations, if that makes sense.
Check out Purse Bling organizers - those are my favorite for open totes and satchels.
Thank you, I'll check them out!
I got my final hologram item from Macy's yesterday. This time Macy's did a super terrible job of packaging. It was put into a shipping envelope with no padding whatsoever. Then the mail carrier shoved it into my mailbox. So it was sort of deformed looking. Also the color was very, very ugly to me. I've never seen a bad looking hologram item until this one. It was an orange/burgundy with a green shift. So it went back straight away. I would have called Macy's to complain about the horrid shipping but they didn't have any to order a replacement with so I just returned it. I guess it never occurred to me that orange was a possibility.
