Well, I checked my Anthropologie tracking, and it said it's being sent via 1-Day Priority Mail, so I hope it gets here tomorrow (Saturday). We will see! 

 

I'm hoping that one of my new Fossil wallets will work with it. Woman Happy


Edith, what type of wallets did you buy?

 

I came close to ordering one last night from Macys.

 

Zip around in silver $34.95, pretty good.

Hi @Sister Golden Hair! I bought two Fossil wallets with a flap and snap closure on HauteLook for about $34 each (a tan and a dark brown color). Woman Happy

I had to go to bed so I could get up early again to go help my Mom, @Sister Golden Hair! I'm so glad your hair is your crowning glory, pun intended! Woman LOL I really need to put the color on my candy-cane hair. I said that to my niece and nephew at Thanksgiving and both of them said they liked it how it was now! They are soooo sweet. I'm going to do it on Monday so it has time to simmer down before Christmas. At first, it's a rather vivid auburn! Woman Surprised

@Sister Golden Hair: Every time l see your nic, l think of the 1975 song of that same name, by America... and the lyrics,"Well l keep on thinkin 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise." 

 

Did you you choose your nic b/c that song has special meaning to you? And l assume you have golden hair!



ETA: My hair is long and straight and black. And, after reading @EdithEllenLily's post just now, l realized that, assuming your hair is golden, if the 3 of us stood together, it would bring to mind the flag of Germany. :-)

I can't believe I ordered my Cyber Monday discounted Antrho bag and just got it today via USPS. Now, that was fast!!  Expect your bags asap.. @EdithEllenLily @Serendipity


Wow @NycVixen -- that is amazing! Woman Surprised


@EdithEllenLily and @NycVixen .. for some reason it seems to be taking forever for the Christmas gifts I have ordered on-line to arrive.  I still have to order a few things .... but haven't decided on exactly what to buy.  So I'm beginning to worry that if things continue at this rate, I may not have everything in time for Christmas if I don't place my orders soon.  


@Boehm Collector Finding the time to search online is challenging, too! Good luck and yes, I would order soon. You don't want to end up at the mall, shopping on deadline. However, when I was in NJ, I really liked the Mall at Short HIlls...I'm not sure if that is nearby for you! Woman Happy


Hi @EdithEllenLily ..  I really like the Mall at Short Hills but haven't been there is years.  It is approximately 45 minutes from me.  When I went shopping with my niece a couple weeks ago I suggested going there as it is closer to her home.  But she said it was too expensive so opted for the Menlo Park Mall in Edison. 


Hi @Boehm Collector -- The Mall at Short Hills IS expensive...but a super fun place to look and to get ideas. Woman Wink (Bad ideas...) When I lived in northern NJ, I had to shop at smaller stores for the basics and it was rather boring. One Sunday when I was reading the New York Times, on the back page of one of the sections was a huge red target with the ad copy reading something like, "If you know what this means, there is one coming near you soon." I was thrilled because I missed shopping at my Target store! It opened in Edison, and I was there on the first day, happily shopping away! Woman Very Happy


Hi @EdithEllenLily .. yes the Mall at Short Hill is a fun place.  I just haven't been there in a long time due to the distance.  And when I suggested it to my niece she din't want to go.

 @Boehm Collector those are really nice bags I don't think I want to know the price lol 

I'm still liking that classic coach and that really classy looking frame bag would love to add one of those to my collection or a Brahmin Smiley Happy


Hi @gramygram .....  Yes, Gucci has some really nice bags ...... I drooled over several when I went to the Gucci store in Manhattan back in October.  I LOVE the Coach Scout Bags.  I have two:  one in Navy and one in Beige.  It is the only bag that have have more than one.  I would love to get the black one..if it goes on sale.  It has two outside pockets.. which is great.  The only thing I don't like about the bag, believe it or not, is the key keeper like the Dooney's have.

@stevieb @Boehm Collector There's a clutch that I really like. Ugh. 


Hi @Serendipity ... which clutch caught your eye?  I'm sure it isn't cheap.  @stevieb ... perhaps there are sites that have Gucci's on sale.  I didn't look because I certainly am not in the market for purchasing another high end bag at this point. 


@Boehm Collector I can't seem to pull a photo, but it's the Broadway Microguccissima clutch. In black or pink. You know, either way, or one of each. LOL.


Hi @Serendipity ..... Is this it?  Definitely very pretty.

@Boehm Collector This is the one! What do you think? Does Gucci leather hold up well over time? I know your mom's bag is canvas, do you also have leather ones? I'm pondering this as my wallet and clutch. Seems dual purpose. Smiley Surprised Smiley Happy


Hi @Serendipity  Yes, my Mom's is canvas.  I also have two Gucci bags my Dad gave me (both in great condition but too small for my purposes these days) that are also canvas.  I do not own any of their leather bags ... but for their prices they better hold up!!!!
