I bought it from the eBayer I posted earlier. I asked her why she didn't take Paypal and she said that she stopped using them because of some issue she had a while ago. I told her my concern of not having recourse and she said we could go through BidPay, where I could still use a credit card and not have to send a check. I also reviewed her feedback (no fakes), current auctions, etc...and I feel very very good about the transaction. I couldn't resist the call of the Stella. I called Saks, Neimans, Bergdorfs, Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack - and every SA I talked to said they hadn't seen any Stellas in a long time. The MJ Boutique said they had some in the warehouse but none were in black, and they were all full-price. I will post my own pictures when I get her...but here is a photo. And seriously...I am on a strict ban now. I will have to live through all of you. But a brown Sophia and a black Stella are 2 dreams come true.
