DH and I were out shopping last night and came across the metallic flap. I mentioned to him that I purchased the bag and was planning on picking it up today. Well... he wasn't happy. He knows I don't carry flaps, and that I like to "collect them". So he told me no more bag collecting and that I should start using them. He also told me that spending 2700 on a bag that is going to sit in my closet is just stupid and he wants it returned. I am so sad. To be honest, I'm not completely in love with the bag, and it isn't really me. I'm not really a flap person and I just like the reissues, but we never get into fights and I felt so bad. Needless to say, its being returned. I really like the bag, but I'm not in love, I just love that it is a classic reissue and I like the hardware. So unless I can talk him back into it, I'm on a mild purse ban. (He did say I could get the cabas when it comes in b/c its practical and I'll use it - I need BIG bags). So I am just sad and needed to vent. So I guess that means my SA has a metallic black 227 if anyone is interested.
