I'm craving a bag, again - not as badly as I'm craving my dream job though ... However, having a nice bag in my hands right now will serve as a darn good distraction. As you know, I love Bolides. I've been hunting for a fuchsia ostrich Bolide 31cm for a long time now. My SA from another store said that it may come any day now. And then, at that very moment, I had second thoughts. I know, me, Kou Kanamiya, having second thoughts about a fuchsia ostrich Bolide 31cm that I have been hunting for for close to a year! What is happening?! Here's the thing. One of my SAs from out of country mentioned at one point that she felt that for bags that are not Birkin or Kelly, it's best to get them in regular leather and invest the rest of the money on exotic Birkin and Kellys because the latter two are much harder to get. I didn't pay much attention to her for the longest time because i wanted every bag I get to be a fuchsia exotic, but then somehow, it sunk in a few days ago Now I'm torn. My local store is getting in a Rose Shocking Chevre Bolide 31cm sometime next year, so the fuchsia ostrich Bolide 31cm will most likely come before that. I don't know which I should get. This is further complicated by the possibility that I MAY be able to place a croc order at next Podium. My SA said she would try and it depends on whether the croc is available. Now I'm really not sure whether she means it since I just never know which part is true and accurate when it comes to my local store ... So here's the dilemma ... I'm concerned that if I get the Rose Shocking Bolide 31cm and save at least $5000 from doing so, I am going to be very very annoyed if the fuchsia croc never comes to fruition (they never did give my friend a confirmation for her SO) ... HOWEVER, I'm concerned that if I get the fuchsia ostrich Bolide 31cm and somehow my SA came t hrough for me, then I'm not going to have enough money for the fuchsia croc bag. Problem here is there's no way to know for sure whether my SA will come through and I don't want to end up making the wrong choice ... In a nutshell, I'll be happy with fuchsia ostrich Bolide 31cm if I cannot get a fuchsia croc Birkin at this time; and I will be happy with Rose Shocking Bolide 31cm if I can get a fuchsia croc Birkin; yet I will be pretty darn annoyed if I miss out on the croc Birkin because of the fuchsia ostrich Bolide just like I will also be equally annoyed if I miss out on fuchsia ostrich Bolide simply because I THOUGHT the fuchsia croc Birkin will come through ... So, what do you suggest that I do? Get the fuchsia ostrich Bolide or trust my SA that they will put in an order for me for a croc during next Podium?
