Finishing up the order...Chief 1

Just getting back from one of my jaunts to one of my favorite showrooms. Sigh...it was HAAAAARD not getting something... oh well, here comes my self control kicking in as usual!!

Lets call him Chief 1 (as there are several chiefs ...) will be VERY happy, both bags will make the ladies VERY hapy. I know how much I love bags and I would carry them both...

I was already tired from working all day, but I know I also have something tomorrow, so I really didn't have a choice, but to head there today!! Chief 1's associate leaves on Saturday and it would save them the costs if I could hand it to this guy instead of using my DHL account. My girl at the showroom , literally stayed late to show me the bags she had for sale...

I didn't get there until about 6:45pm. They are located in midtown and I am in the financial district, so it took far longer than i thought it would to get there. She had left two messages on my blackberry , by the time i got out of the train station... Urgh!

Anyway, as anyone who has been in a showroom knows...everything is laid out to perfection. Whatever they had that might suit my purposes were laid out BEAUTIFULLY!! I won't bore you with the details , but I got both of the designer bags for far less than i expected to. I chose a beautiful yellow one for the wife and a wine one for the "other". Seems like chief 1 will get something after all.


Jeez...


Yippee, LondonG (male client living in London-LOVES designer gear with a passion) left me a message about some shopping he needs to do... YAY!! Its too late to call him back tonight, because of the time difference...but first thng tomorrow , its on. I already know what to get him, something I saw tonight in the showroom. Hmmm wonder if he still wants that messenger bag we were talking about before...

My favourite words. Bags and Discounts :) Will be drawing up a wish list for a quote soon.

I need weaning off black bags, actually need weaning off black in general. I might throw myself at your mercy and you can do a "What not to wear" makeover on me.

Kemi - I am ready when you are...I know how hard it is to stick to black. ITS EASY!!!

But you have to try something new sooner or later...

Favoured - Yes I did , but how would i know if he even gives the best one to his wife!! Sigh...I am trying my best NOT to think about it...
