As Kelly said, I am in LA having loads of fun. We took a meeting yesterday at the Sunset Marquis (it was trés LA) and then headed to Neiman Marcus after (but of course). I was really good, I only bought make up because I splurged on the crocodile birkin and ricky wallet so I told myself no more shopping for at least a month. I did, however, get my shopping thrill by convincing Kelly to buy the super cool Marni Balloon bag in purple, it had her name all over it so she had to have it! Plus she’ll need it for Fashion Week in September I thought we were done and were about to leave when I saw this beauty from Chanel. OH.MY.GOD! Sueded Alligator in a gorgeous finish, silver with golden sheen on top– to die! If you have never stroked sueded Alligator skin, you are missing out my friends. Of course it is off limits to me (I will have to commit myself to the insane asylum if I buy another bag this month) but it doesn’t mean I can’t dream! There is only one in US and it’s priced at a mere $35,695 (so if you don’t really need a new car, you can go for this totally frivolous but oh so fabulous bag instead!) Call Gary Disney at NM Beverly Hills 310-550-5900 EXT 2042 or his cell 818-284-8862 and tell him Bag Snob sent you.
