    Grin Two Weeks Vacation = 3 (ok, 4) New Bags!

    Hi all! Apparently I missed 495 threads during my two week vacation, one week I spent with my fam on the family farm in WV and the other I was just here doing nothing. In WV they are in a pretty rural area so right now dialup is the only option and then this week I just avoided getting sucked into the web so I could enjoy the nice weather and so stuff with the BF.

    Of course, none of that stopped me from shopping and finding some awesome deals!

    First, I got home and discovered my parents now have a TJ Maxx (in town, so it still took like 30 min to get there). NOT GOOD FOR THE WALLET! My mom had never been so I took her and my youngest brother, who is almost 5, and she got to browse while he helped me pick purses. He literally gravitated right to the bag section where of everything on the rack he first picked up a Juicy Bowler and a huge Patchwork Coach. I was so proud, I almost cried. Hahaha. Anyway, I wanted a fancy tote for my computer and junk (thanks Vivalajuicy for giving me that idea with your LH) so I told him to look for big and a pretty color. He picked up this CRAZY KVZ bag with tons of crap all over it and I had to explain that extra stuff isnt always a good thing. The next bag he picked up was made of those glossy woven gum wrappers, but alas not wide enough. Then he found THE bag. Dark purple buttery leather sides and handles, with plum colored patent leather woven front and back. But it was $300. For a computer bag. That I put on the floor. I left defeated. Then I came back the very next day, told the lady I needed a discount because even though the retail price was "suggested $700" it was one of those brands that only sells in the US at TJM and we all know no one is paying $700 for a bag at TJM. SHe marked it down to $70 (I had to google the brand on my phone and show her)! It is soooo pretty I just look at it hanging on the rack every time I walk into my closet.

    During the same visit I bought a little pouch from Loop NYC (whatever happened to them?) who I LOVE. It looks like a little yellow ghetto blaster from the 80s with a real speaker and inside you hook your ipod to it. Its great for me because at work I need to hear the kids and not have headphones, so I can just sit it on the table next to me while they play or whatever. And its waterproof so I can use it at the pool the next few weeks while they have swim lessons.

    Bag number three - the big one! My lovely, gorgous, humongous, so in love with it I took it to the beach and sat it on its own towel and everything, Louis Vuitton Damier Neverfull. I arrived home to a USPS notice on my stack of mail...my friends and their parents decided to stay in HI for an extra week or so to meet up with some OTHER friends on vacation (must be nice to be rich and no one ever goes to work...) but she didnt want me to have to wait for my bag. She is so cute - she put in a note about how she saved the box and ribbon for me, but packing it to get to me quickly was pain so she took it all by its lonesome and stuffed it with bubble wrap, wrapped it in tissue, then in bubble wrap, and topped it off with packing peanuts. It arrived a little smushed, but it got here! And thank goodness she mailed it, apparently his parents now want to look at real estate so they may stay even longer. I would be jealous of someone getting a full MONTH of tropical vacation time, but I got my bag! Woohoo!

    And sort of bag number 4, I am meeting a woman tomorrow after work who wants to sell her LV T&B Complice (found her on Craigslist), which I think would look so cute hanging from the Neverfull. She says she has the receipt and everything but avoided posting pics on CL because people steal them and then sell fakes. If it looks good them I will have mini-bag number four soon!

    Sadly, last week on vacation I dropped my camera in my parents pool and now it is all sketchy, but as soon as BF is out of the house I will use his fancy new camera to get some pics of all my new lovelies!

    Lucky lucky girl! I love Loop NYC, I have a ton of their bags, the ghetto blaster ones are my favorite, I want more of them! I'd love to see it when you get a chance, and of course the neverfull too!

    I hope to take some pics later this week with my boss' camera - BF is a no-go as I had to tell him I bought a knock-off to avoid complaints about my bag habit (they have to hang a THIRD set of waterfall faceouts this weekend to literally SUPPORT my habit!), but GOOD GRACIOUS is it a doozy. And I got the GM...it is perfect for me because open its a great beach bag and squished up its great for every day.


    The weird thing is, Mrs. V says hers (she got one too) and Brees (the daughter in law) got very stiff Neverfulls, whereas mine and Gias (the daughter) are sort of floppy and smushy. We all agreed to trade based on preference after a few weeks if we were uncomfortable with ours.

    Did anyone else have this issue with any Neverfull, and how are they generally? Thanks!
