the Nordstrom sale is really fabulous and thanks to melly for bringing it to our attention! i am seriously considering the alyona in teal. i wanted the teal baby stam before, but with 40% off, i want to get something bigger and better! you know, to make the most of the discount. my boyfriend says the bag is too similar to my mix quilted tote and my stam. one of my coworkers said the color looks "too old." i'm not sure what that means. what do you ladies think? for $825, i think it looks great or do i have my sale goggles on?
