Girl.....I JUST got back into town. You guys have NO IDEA what kind of withdrawl I have been on not being on this board! I was totally stuck on a boat for FIVE DAYS IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. Nowhere, meaning no wi-fi only for like 5 minutes. I was DYING......I was finally able to get connected back at the home port marina and spent like an hour catching up on all the posts when I read the one that Bal/NY had the red hobo......

I think I am going to get the red hobo instead of the work.....that is, if they still have them in stock!

I'm SO HAPPY TO BE BACK ON LAND !!!!!

Hi Odd !! To be honest, I am torn between them both, but you know me, I'll probably end up with them both.

The reason I am torn, well, I am totally impatient and the work isn't going to be out for a while and since the red hobo is available now....well.... you know!

How's the CC thing going w/that crazy hollywood botique??? I read you have to wait 30 days or something before they (cc company) gets back to you? Do you have the bag in your hands or does the botique have it????

I'm also posting the other pic because it is the best representation of the rouge red that I have seen in pics. It looks exactly like that.
Circoit, that's it.....I'm ALL OVER THE RED NOW......

Gorgeous bags you lucky girl you

welcome back! i'm so tempted to get the red. i was torn btw red and bordeaux in the hobo, but ended up getting it in bordeaux from the b boutique, and it should arrive by monday (?). i called 2 days ago, and they have the red hobo in stock. i had put my name down at neimans awhile ago for the red twiggy so if i do love it (when i see it in person)...uh oh.

that's right, 30 days for my cc company to investigate. i had sent the bag back early august, and they still have it. the manager asked me if i wanted it sent back to me, but i had them keep it until all this comes to a resolution.

I want another B bag, but the hobo doesn't work for me, because I don't like to reach deep into my bag.

I'm hoping for new styles come Spring.

Grrrr! I just posted the longest message and the fashionspot server wasn't responding so I have to do it all over again.

Okay, nycgirl this one's for you. Here's some pics of me carrying the twiggy. Please ignore the hawaiian shirt. I am wearing my husbands shirts now because maternity shirts no longer cover my expansive torso.

The bag has a checkbook, wallet, some toys, a burpcloth, and a bottle. The fit under the arm is tight but manageable. Don't think it will fit over a coat. Overall, not nearly as practical as my hobo, but the style is sooooo hot I may overlook this fact. I used to prefer the looks of the city over the twiggy but after comparing both in real life, I much prefer the twiggy.

Odd - the rouge red is exactly the color you are looking for. I wanted a deep, rich, fall-worthy red and that is what I got. Its just lovely.

Odd - I vote for both colors. They are both so different. In terms of pure gorgeousness - the red probably wins. Its one of those colors that people will stop you in the street and ask about your bag.
