Well everyone I took another plunge (this is getting ridiculous really!). I called my SA in Atlanta and ordered a bolide. It should arrive tomorrow in the A.M. I'm SO excited, so I decided to announce it now rather than wait. I figured you ladies could help keep me company while I endure the agonizing wait. And while I was on the phone with my SA we started talking about the croc in California. Turns out the Atlanta store had it too. They had one in red croc. Also, the Chicago store had it and they offered it to Oprah . She turned it down saying she couldn't bring herself to pay that kind of money for a handbag even though she could easily afford it! I figured as much. Oprah just strikes me as someone who would be reticent about that kind of thing. But back to my bolide, its a 31cm and it is in blue jean. Woo hoo!
