  1. Hi everyone and Happy Valentines day :heart:

    I'm super late in posting this as it happened two weeks ago but better late than never!

    I was on a shopping "hiatus" last year while I was pregnant and missed many collections both at the full price store and the outlets. The Ali collection was one of them but having seen some of the Ali bags that popped up at the outlets recently I was not upset over missing the collection. That was until I saw one of Johnniegirls reveals from last year! From that point I was drooling and dreaming over this bag but truly had no hope in finding it because it was so long ago and apparently this particular one did not make it to the outlets. After Johnnie was so kind in giving me all the details and price, I searched Ebay but there was only one and it was selling for over $600 which was way above retail!!! Well, I called my outlet and put myself on client tracker, I figured some random one might just turn up...it doesn't hurt to dream.

    By the title of the thread you can guess what happens next...I got a call from my SA letting me know that they had just received a return and she was holding it for me!!! I had never gotten to Miami as fast as I did that day...I practically flew over to the Dolphin Mall. I kept envisioning another customer coming in and buying my bag before I got there. Well no worries because I got there and retrieved my beautiful girl...and beautiful she is...just so lovely with all her details...

    Here she is...

    The Ali Studded Large Hobo #13645 in silver and white. Original price $498 but she was now on clearance for $479.99 so after the 50% and the 20% I got her for $191.99!!! I thought I was going to faint! She was a boutique return, brand spanking new, fully stuffed with dustbag inside and does not even have the bullseye.

    Here are some closeups of her lovely details:
