    Default Looking for a Specific Handbag -- Advice Needed

    Hello all,

    My name is Faye, and I'm a handbag-aholic.

    Cue voices: "Hi Faye!"

    In all seriousness, I am a faithful devotee of handbags, so I was thrilled to discover this site. For the past few weeks I've been on a hunt for a specific bag, and it continues to elude me. I hope you could offer some suggestions, because this thing is taking on Moby Dick-like proportions.

    In the January 2008 of Harper's Baazar (the one with J-Lo on the cover), there is a full-page ad for a beautiful Furla bag. It's a sort of brick-red leather satchel-type bag with a wallet pouch in the front and a top zip.

    I went to the furlausa website, but they just direct you to individual stores. I tried the New York stores and they couldn't help me. I was wondering if anybody else here knows about the bag I'm talking about. If not, any suggestions for tracking it down? I've already tried the stores that sell Furla bags (Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, etc.), and no luck there.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

    -Faye

    HI FAYE!!!


    Ok... I am pissed because I haven't recieved my January Harpers Bazaar Magazine yet!!! The last one I got was the Uma Thurman one!!!

    Anyways, most of the time, handbags pictured in Magazines... (newly released magazines) aren't out to the public yet. So maybe its a spring/summer bag that will be out soon...

    Good Luck finding the Furla!

    Hi VivaLaJuicy! Thanks for replying. Maybe you should call the magazine, because I got the Harper's Bazaar with J-Lo on the cover about two weeks ago (and I live in Maryland, so it's not like we get magazines early).

    Anyway, back to The Bag. I now think of it in capital letters, since it's become a Crusade-like mission for me . A few days ago, I checked on the furla usa website, and they finally have it. It's called the Afrodite, the red color is Gerania, and it is gorgeous:

    Furla USA

    And you could buy it directly from the furla website! Euraka, right?

    Wrong.

    I didn't buy it at the time, because my birthday is coming up in February, and I thought this would be a great present for my husband to buy me. I forgot to mention it until today -- keep in mind, only a few days after they posted it. Well, I went online to send hubby the link, and it is NO LONGER AVAILABLE in the color I want. It's in white. It's in lavendar. It's in a hideous, traffic-cone orange. But my beautiful, lovely, understated-yet-sexy red? Gone.

    How could it have sold out in 3 days? HOW??? I mean, the thing is $800, which isn't a lot compared to something like, say, the Kelly bag. But still, it's not like it's a bag of disposable razors.

    So my lunchtime is now being spent calling all the USA Furla boutiques to see if they have it. So far, 3 don't. I'm getting a little disheartened. Hey Furla, you took a full-page ad in a magazine and I responded to it, but I can't buy the product! Your ad dollars worked! Now give me the product .

    Oy.

    In other bag news, I like the Coach Madeline. I think I'm getting one in black or tan (it's a beautiful, creamy beige) for everyday. It's a good one for work, very cute, and it has a silk scarf attached? Plus, it's actually available to buy in stores! Unlike certain other bags who shall remain nameless. Has anyone tried the Madeline?
