because on my day off, my other boss calls me and i realized an error i made so i had to go downtown. i was debating between the carly in camel leather and the signature black. i hate the signature but it's lighter then leather and i'm going to get the larger size for sure, plus it's 100$ less (always a plus) and the C's are not that noticeable if at all. but i love the yellow lining in the camel carly and that color is pretty, but i worry about it getting dirty as it's going to be solely a "school, beat around bag" BUT this girl i will see on a fairly regular basis has it, and we dislike each other, even though i wanted it first, she beat me to the punch, so she has the black signature carly as well. lots of drama sorry! but if you have any advice about that it would be welcomed! anyways, didn't want to ruin conversion so i went to macy's instead to try on the bags (that and my store is completely sold out except for two leather carlys, one in camel the smaller size, and one in black, the larger, none of which i was considering) surprise surprise macy's had all of them in stock so i was able to try them on and debate (still can't decide) but i saw the metallic bags there! andddddddddd a similar version except the body is made of entirely vachetta. yup. with metallic details on the outside they had the hobo at 598$ and the satchel...i didn't bother to check the price. i wish i had my camera so i could take pics. they also had this bag that i haven't seen yet, it's like the soho flap but the shape is more rectangle then hoboish and the flap goes all the way down, instead of part like the ones in store now, and has a huge buckle. macy's has the andrea satchel and ergo bags as well...in signature and leather. but no white color or pond.... i almost wished i could've used my discount at macys. sigh. nothing like instant gradification. just thought i'd share! it was union square macy's just in case anyone wants to pick up those bags.
