Wednesday night, we went out to dinner and I casually asked if he went and saw Garrett Ray at Louis. He said he had. A month ago, I had went to go look at bags to for sizing. I thought I would be a nice wife and get a card with the name of the bag on the card. I brought that card home and it sat on the coffee table for over a month. So, I assumed that he wasn't going to do anything with it. When I went the bag I wanted was sold out company wide, but I was told they would be getting more in before Christmas. So, Jeff tells me that he went and all the bags were still sold out, but he had placed one on hold for my for pickup in January. Then he started talking about a similar bag. We got home, and I started researching this other bag, since I hadn't really thought to look at anything else. Then I decided to take a shower and when I got out of the shower, the box was sitting on the bed. I brought it in to the office and asked what it was. I think Jeff was pretty pleased with himself about making up the story. So, I in the box was my bag. The catch was, I wasn't allowed to talk about it, tweet about or carry it until Sunday. And if anyone knows me, that was tough to do!
So, I'm excited because I get to take it to Florida with me tomorrow! Yay! Now, for those who say that's an awful lot to spend on a bag. I will tell you I have one other Louis, and it was probably one of the best investments I've ever made. It has a lifetime warranty. It doesn't go out of style, and it's classic. I've had my Speedy 30 for 6 years and it's in perfect shape! I'm a believer investment pieces and it will be a great bag to pass down to a kiddo one day.
