what are the current seasons colors/leather/hardware combos?
the ones I know of for sure are:
QUILTED (Gold HW): Plum, Fuschia, Black, Grey, Ivory
SO COOL (SIlver HW, I think): Dark Plum, Dark Grey (Olive/Khaki, really), Rose, Taupe, Ivory, Black
SOFT/EXOTIC (Silver HW): Black/Grey; Grey/Purple
PATENT: Black, Light Pink (Rose?), Yellow (Ivory), Taupe
QUILTED TWO-TONED: Blue, Lavender, Black
what colors are coming up in the next collection?
there is a Violet/Purple and a Royal Blue from Resort in Soft Calf with silver hardware -- as far as s/s goes, I don't know which colors the ZC will be available in, but I did post some of the new bag colors in another thread (I'll find it after I post this)
are there any dept store sales coming up that may include the zc?
Nordstroms Half Yearly Sale starts Nov 5th -- it's usually 40% off whatever is marked down, with a second markdown usually the day after Xmas, an addtl 30% -- they carry the quilted, patent leather & a few stores got the 2-toned black one -- whether or not they get marked down, though, we won't know until closer to sale time. I would imagine the Purple and Fuschia ones will as they've had them the longest
Saks Friends & Family starts the 18th (I think) -- the d/c will either be 20 or 25% off -- not sure which ZCs they have
and if i go to a mj boutique or call one up, will they be able to track down old seasons colors?
The boutiques have many older colors/styles -- it depends on the season and whether or not it sold out -- I just purchased my Pale Grey ZC from the boutique (from S/S08) -- the best thing would be to have a specific color/season in mind when calling -- I don't think they can just tell you which ones they have, as many things are stored in a warehouse and aren't physically in the stores (the info would be in their computers)
