Krissie2, thanks for the link! Little scared because it's a pre-owned bag. Love the drape of this blue one on the video, though. A coated leather can be SO luxurious, softer than a patent leather.

Meanwhile, the terracotta stirrup will be on my doorstep Friday! Carrying my Roma 2 natural ostrich this weekend while thinking that I'm enough of a Big Bag Gal to adore a slightly bigger bag than the Roma 2 (of which I have 3). Hope the pebble leather is buttery!

Is everyone still adoring their large GILI stirrup?

Oh yes!

Hi 1Professor, here is the link to the blue:

I think you made a good choice with the pebble leather hobo. The reviews are very good, and from the presentation it looks gorgeous.

As for Q having ordered more, I doubt it. Without LR here to present these bags, I think they are just happy to get the original quantity sold, but then I am very pessimistic, having received many, many customer returns as "new".

Krissie2:

QVC did order more bags! The BLUE exotic leather stirrup just arrived. Wow. Happy sigh. I adore this bag. Totally new, everything wrapped. The color is much more lovely than the video. A perfect bag for blue jeans, heels, and a couture jacket. Plus attitude. Strut it.

Yes, I had to give up a few things to justify the extra $100 dollars. But the leather and finish are amazing; I can see why the processing would cost more.

As a Roma 2 fan, didn't think I needed a bag bigger than those. But, apparently, I did.

I'm seduced.

Always wanted a ring with a fancy yellow diamond. Sigh.

Purses far outweigh seductive power with me now, compared to jewelry. [Ooooh! I should look around for some jewelry to consign, to fund the next bag . . . scurries off.]

This puddling shades-of-blue GILI bag continues to get the most compliments (men and women) of any I carry.

Wondering if anyone bought the brown or wine and is loving those colors?

I suspect we're all gasping over the new $472 price on this handbag on the Q, but the lovely wine/plum just popped up on eBay, NEW!, for $268.88 for anyone who'd like to add it to their collection.

I just adore the sueded leather used in this lovely.

Given the obnoxious price increases, I haven't purchased anything GILI in 5 months and don't see it changing. Probably done with the line-not interested in buying returns with missing parts/accessories for a supposed "clearance" price that's not really a clearance price. The new return policy put a nail in it!
