my favourite is the one from style.com with the black background

i dunno.. i just seem to have the feeling this bag won't be insanely hard to locate once its out (maybe not feeling the hype yet?)..

I just pre-ordered my THIRD Edith in whiskey, this one is fully paid for. I know it's crazy but I so badly want the bag, from back in September 05', and now that it seems to becoming a popular bag, i'm worried something will go wrong with my order.

While in the store I saw a sample. It is GORGEOUS!!!!!!! I also asked the SA to reserve me a large one as I think it would be wonderful as travel luggage.

I also bought some Spring Chloe shoes to go with it. Now I just need to see which of the three stores comes through first. After that, ebay here I come with the second and third!!

I also agree with Janyoung that ANY of Philo's bags will now be very sought after. Wonder if our first season Paddy's will increase in value???!!! Sadly doubt it, just wishful thinking

I've already ordered the whiskey from LVR. They told me March delivery. I can hardly wait (but a little delay will be good for my poor credit card!)

Oh Morri - you're like me, when I ordered 2 ivory paddies and then forgot that I had ordered two !! A little OT but I'm dying to know which shoes you got!

Man, I totally LOVE this bag - and personally, I think whiskey is THE color.

P.S. I just thought of this - you know how the first issues of a bag seem to be the highest quality - that it all sort of slowly goes down hill after that? I'd jump on the bandwagon now.
so is Phoebe really leaving chloe???? i thought that was just a rumer

No, completely for real... Vogue.co.uk already speculated on replacements. Roland Mouret is odds-on fave.

theres a thread about philo resigning from chloe..
i think richemont denied rumors of mouret, sth like "he's definately not being considered",etc.. who knows..

so what is everyone considering? (i know morri's got 3 whiskeys on hold for her ) i'm thinking taupe or whiskey..

Buttercream (aka taupe) is first choice, grey second. Whiskey is beautiful, but would not work with my clothes, alas.

The Bergdorfs contact told me that there are only three colors: buttercream (which she described as taupe-y beige), whiskey, and grey.
