So, with the extra bday money I totally did not expect, I decided to treat myself to a "pop" color and went with the grape in a first! I called BalNY and spoke to Daphne (who really is a doll!) and rather than just be put on the waitlist, went ahead and did a charge and send authorization. I asked approximately when they were expecting the shipment to come in (and said I knew it was a f/w collection color, so I know it will be a while), and Daphne said that the window is anywhere from Mid Jul through the second week of Oct. !!! She did say that they were hoping for something in August or Sept. In a way I'm glad - I just got my anthracity, and was truly expecting that to be my only bbag, so since I can actually get another one (and then that's REALLY it), it's kind of nice that it won't be here for quite some time. Of course, the anticipation will be killing me! Anyway, just wanted to pass on the latest to you all. If I'm giving info you all already knew, sorry! Newbie mistake! However, I am excited ot share the news about the grape first!
