Thank you for the explanation. I vaguely remember the KS bags... I never paid that much attention because they were a teenage favourite. I do remember the original boxy shape, but then she overdid herself with a zillion variations, which really turned me off.Regarding the Cerf and Kate Spade:
When she first hit the scene with her bags, the original one was squarish (like the cerf), with a pocket in the back (like the cerf) open w/a flap that closes it w/a magnet (like the cerf). Handles are the same height. In black, w/silver. I have one, lol, so it was like, aw damn. The bag is also smaller than I thought. So, for the price, I'm not loving it. Also, mine is leather (KS). Her first ones were a funky fabric and then she brought them out in leather. In the cerf there is a middle nylon bag that snaps out and has a zipper top. Oh, and it comes w/a shoulder strap that you attatch (don't know where as I didn't take it out). Yes, it has silver HW.
When I read that she was returning a red jumbo my first thought was "what store" . Even though I could not get it I knew someone would. Red Jumbo flap is to Chanel tPF'er like a red flag to a bull. Ladies, take your mark. At least your return will get a good new tPF home.I see sharks circling the red jumbo like blood in the water. Thank goodness I'm not a jumbo jet lugger or I'd be in there with the others with my harpoon.
